Re: Marine DC air conditioning compact unirs

First question - Is this SPAM?

Second question - who is the manufacturer and what is the model number? What kind of warranty?

Third question - eBay?!? Is that the only place to buy such a unit?

Fourth question - are YOU selling these units? If so you should disclose your affiliation in your profile and signature (as Dometic has done)

I deleted my PayPal account, and sold all of the PayPal stock in my portfolio after I was screwed by PayPal. I refuse to deal with them ever again. So if these are only sold through eBay, then you've lost a prospective customer. Then again, eBay's sales model is: you bought it, now it is your problem. I guess this IS SPAM.

Nice picture of a man's watch.

Seriously? Cooling a 48' sailboat with a 4200 BTU AC unit? I don't think so.

Re: Marine DC air conditioning compact unirs

I'm cooling..... sort of my 33' boat with 12,000 BTU, it's not as efficient as the new units so maybe a new 12k unit would do the job. Plus I think I might be able to run a new unit off of an eu2000. Anybody tried this and if so did you change out the starting capacitor ?
I know my current unit will not run off of a 2000 watt generator. The unit that the op posted might be O.K. for one cabin but I think I'll go with a Mermaid when I have to replace the old klunker.

Re: Marine DC air conditioning compact unirs

My dock neighbor runs his 16k BTU unit with his Honda 2000. I was shocked when he told me he did, so I asked if I could try his Honda on my 16k unit. Turned on the fan first, then hit the compressor. Honda bogged down for a second or two, came right back up and ran my AC just fine.

My Yamaha 2400W runs my 16,000btu Flagship Marine unit without issue.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: Marine DC air conditioning compact unirs

It is spam - the OP's name is the name of the company selling the unit "Mabru". There looks to be several similar offerings on eBay, with this one being one of the more expensive choices.

Heating and cooling aren't free form ideas. It takes so many BTU's to heat or cool a specific space to a specific temperature from another. It also takes a specific amount of energy to produce each BTU of change, depending on the system.
It's pretty pathetic when folks advertise the impossible. If he'd just offered a fan blowing through a cooler one can put ice in, perhaps he would not look so much the fool.

Re: Marine DC air conditioning compact unirs

Seems the OP has deleted his post. Can't imagine why.
