    I also had replaced my MPS-50 about 8 years ago and it lasted just a year. So I have wired the frig 7 years ago and freezer 5 years ago to DC only by passing the AC converter on the back side of both units. They have worked great since doing so. Very easy to do. We are on the anchor quite a bit and have had no issues. Hope you get yours resolved!

    Dennis...did you just connect the fridge and freezer to the terminal block mounted on the wall behind them? So you leave your DC switches on for both appliances when you leave the boat?

    Faucet install complete! piece of cake. 15 minutes like you said. Love the look! Changed all the cup holders to stainless as well, so it all blends nicely. Should have changed that faucet sooner! Thanks again for the feedback and the Amazon lead.
    Will tackle the generator next.... :(

    I probably have the same problem as my frig only cools if I turn on the DC switch. Works fine that way though so I have never bothered to test the AC Converter.

    Hi all, we've run across a 2003 running 8.1s with DTS. I can't find in the literature that was even an option in 2003. Added at a later date I'm assuming? Pictures of the helm station don't show obvious signs of refit. Beyond having a single lever for both engine and transmission, what would be the advantage? Thanks

    Bottom Line,
    Sorry for the delayed response. Been in the bilge alot with injector and aftercooler issues. When I put a volt meter on the converters, I only got around 5 volts when I was running off the batteries.
    Yes the DC frig & freezer switch on the DC panel is left on and I use the thermostats in the units to turn them on and off. The boat sits in the canal behind our house, so I don't keep the units on when we aren't using the boat.
    I disconnected the AC wires from the AC converters and removed them from the units.
    Then I attached the DC wires to the block on the back of the units. Simple!
    Good luck with your project.
    Dennis

    Freezer update - I finally got around to pulling the freezer, easy like you said. Tried all suggestions and bringing in on Monday to have Freon added.
    Thanks,
    Rob
