      Hi Four Suns:

      I'm a new boater owner of a 1999 240 Sundancer. I want to charge the batteries (3) using my shore, home ac power. My battery selector switch has 3 positions.....What position should it be on? Also, do I need to turn both the AC panel on and the Inverter switch on?

      Thank you ahead!

      Hi Four Suns

      There's a selector switch located inside a cabinet with a clock like face in the rear of the boat. The switch has 4 positions: 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. I need help figuring what position the selector switch should be in when starting, when boating on the lake, when parked in the driveway, and when charging the batteries?

      Thank you!

      Hi Gary,

      I was told that you did a great post on installing a cell signal booster. I've searched for it but haven't been able to find it. If you did, in fact, write a post on cell boosters would you be so kind as to point me to the thread? Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

      Hi Gary,

      I have posted a question on our charger/converter and one of the other members suggested I contact you. The post is titled Inverter Questions. The question is actually for the charger/converter.

      Thanks Connie

      Is there a way to test an antenna? My VHF has a message of "low power" when I try to transmit, and I'd rather rule out the antenna 1st.

      Hi Gary,
      Not sure how to navigate this site so not sure if you will get this message, but I was wondering with all of those kids on your 480, did you add a television to the starboard stateroom? My kids are bugging me to put one on the wall in that room?

      Do you know the correct alternator for the qsm11's. Mine shows a delco remy 22SI but there they need a part number to order. My port engine shows only 12.1V when underway, so I assume I need a new alternator. Also where is the best place to purchase. Thanks Mark

      Hey Gary,
      You seem to be the man on the board..
      I wanted to know if you knew the least expensive way to mount a new Intellian i2 on a 2007 hardtop for a 400DA. Any link on options?

      Thanks,
      Chris

      Hi Gary,

      I was looking at your blog on the changing the duck bills for the vacuflush pump and wanted to ask you a quick question.

      I'm a boater out of Long Island NY. I just purchased a 1996 Sea Ray 400 Sedan Bridge. There was an awful smell that was coming from the mid cabin bilge where the shower sump is located. I noticed that the sump was mildewy and discustingly gross. So I immediately replaced the box, the fittings, the pump and the float switch. However, I noticed that there still is an ordor coming from the same bildge area. I then noticed that the vacufush tanks (there are 2 heads) and pumps are in the same compartment. I was able to access the pump through an access door under one of the stateroom bunks to get a closer look at the problem. It was there I noticed a light to heavy smell coming from this area, particualrly concentrated at the vacuflush pumps. My question is.. Are the pumps supposed to give off an odor? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

      thanks,
      matt
