    How else would you run the a/c while underway?! (That is, if you have a generator)

    Re: Official 280 Sundancer Thread

    Tried windlass for the 1st time and everything was great until I was winding her back in and the chain switched to rope. It wouldn't catch the rope so i climbed up front and helped it a bit then it was fine. Ideas? Tighten clutch? Worn rope in the spot if that's possible.

    Check the finger tension. Just let the line back out, and bump it thru the transition?

    Could be a number of things, weak spring, bent finger post, clutch slip, worn chain wheel, old stiff rope, worn braid.

    I also notified my carbon monoxide detector is bad and was unplugged. As soon as I plugged it in it turned red and beeped. Also my halon extinguisher light on the helm is out and I looked at the gauge and its discharged some. Should I have it charged? How do I remove it?

    The windlass just needed help only when the chain transitioned to rope. Once I helped it the windlass picked it up no problem. I'll check rope in that spot next time. Maybe it's a little frayed and if so can I fix it ? Hate to replace for one little spot.

    That's probably what I need to do. Maybe the splice is worn. I'll check it then maybe cut it and redo it or just try to tighten the unit. Not that I know how too or if that will work. I never had windlass

    Is the splice (line) hard? If so, soak the splice in softener and water, then work it so the fibers (strands) are loose.

    A new CO detector is needed. From what I remember reading the halon extinguisher cannot be recharged and there was/is issues with fitting in the new bottle.
