Re: Can you run a dehumidifier too much?

Never had a mold problem but did it to combat the diesel smell from the bilge and dampness through our winter and rain. Southern California summers are dry, even on the water.

I've turned the...

Re: Can you run a dehumidifier too much?

So now the bigger question, how do I un-do some of the damage done. I can fill the cracks and repair the separations but some of the wood hatches are bowed / warped. Is there a way to flatten them...

Since we feed her around 5 ish to 6 ish and she generally eats what we eat, we've adjusted to all eat at the same time. All that to say the galley and salon table are free and avaialble until it's...

Re: Tach, Alternator odd trouble....

To Maine Sail: I would notice that the alternator wasn't charging after being on a mooring all weekend. The house batteries would be down to 12.2 or so and the starter battery would be at ~ 12.5/6....

Re: EFI Outlet in cockpit.

I believe it pops but I'll head down today or tomorrow, plug in a light then disconnect shore and see to be sure. I assume it pops becasue I have to reset it when I reconnect to shore.

Re: EFI Outlet in cockpit.

I cannot reset it, even with no load. The reset and test buttons have no effect (when off of shore power). I'm yet to stick my voltage meter in it when not on shore power. I'll look this week.

Re: EFI Outlet in cockpit.

Nothing was wired to keep it from working at select times.

Keeoing it simple, the GFI only works with shore power. Not with inverter or gen. Again, I've tried two GFIs (so that's not it) AND a...

Re: EFI Outlet in cockpit.

No other GFIs on boat at all. That is the only one.

Inverter is the super size - Xantrex Freedom SW3012 12V 3000W Inverter/Charger -. Had it professionally installed.

So likely then the...

EFI Outlet in cockpit.

Not an electrician and learning so go easy on me.

I have numerous 110 outlets on the boat that work under shore power or when the inverter is engaged. All of that works swimmingly.
