    Newbie here! Sound system question

    Didn't have to call a professional (just yet)! Turns out the amp was just fine. I hadn't connected the turn on line to the head unit. I thought I had because when I connected what I thought was the turn on wire, I got sound out of the arch speakers. Turns out, that wire was just for those speakers (maybe they have their own built-in amp?). So I traced the wire from the amp to the cabin and crimped it onto the same wire as what powered the arch speakers and the amp lit up! Now I have 8 speakers working just fine. Cannot figure out the subs, but I know they are wired correctly at the amp because when I apply the same source to the sub inputs, I get good sound through the subs. But when I use a y-adapter for the single sub out on the head unit, the subs produce nothing. Going to have to research that a bit. The three knobs at the helm are volume control for subs, cockpit speakers, then swim platform speakers. Not sure how they accomplished the wiring for this setup, but they work just fine (with the exception of the sub...although it worked fine when I introduced the main output to the sub inputs). Just gotta figure out how to get the mono sub signal to the L/R sub inputs. Obviously it's just my lack of understanding, but I'm determined to figure it out.

    VacuFlush In-Line Filter

    Some Vacu-Flush systems have an actual holding tank which is vented to atmosphere, and the vent filter is a nice addition as it helps to control odors. On the smaller Chaps, there is no waste transfer pump and Sealand uses a reinforced holding tank that doubles as the vacuum accumulator. I prefer this system as the vacuum pump moves air only and never sees waste. Secondly, all accumulated waste is stored under vacuum which inhibits bacterial growth and eliminates odor. These systems are easy to identify as the small vacuum pump is mounted to the top of the vacuum tank. The limitation of these systems is the distance between the toilet and holding tank itself, and as the boats get bigger, Chap switches to the more conventional in-line waste transfer pump with duck-bill valves and in line vacuum accumulator. If your thru hull vent line runs to a filter, or tank then you have the conventional system,. If that vent hose runs from the discharge side of the small vacuum pump, then you have the hybrid. W

    Just ordered my first drone

    For small, uncontrolled airports (assuming they even answer), it's usually enough to speak with them and let them know you'll be flying periodically in the area, and that you'll be under 400 feet. The "sUAV Rules and Regulations" forum on mavicpilots.com is a great resource for airport notification, both from knowledgeable people, and real-world experience with various airports and heliports.

    VacuFlush In-Line Filter

    Mine does not have a filter.

    VacuFlush In-Line Filter

    What model do you have?? I would find the outside vent on the side of your boat. Then go inside the engine compartment and trace the hose back to the filter, if there is one.

    VacuFlush In-Line Filter

    You may not have a filter. You dont necessarily need one. Follow the exhaust hose from your holding tank,it should be on that. Mine sits right on top of the holding tank.
  14. I am trying to find where I can buy the original rear bench seats, left and right of live well/cooler, for my 2017 Ski Fish. I don't always need the buckets and would like to buy the bench cushions that are in the 19 H2O Ski. That way if I am out an about just for recreation, skiing, tubing, I can put these in. I would have a full bench seat and it would make it more comfortable for passengers. I would remove the plastic holds under the seats that would normally hold the seat in place on the Ski only H2O.

    Water Leak walk through window 2013 sig 270

    I have a Sig 280 and have the same problem. I don't think your window is leaking. If you look at the bottom of your side windows where they meet your clear coat there is a track for the water to follow. However, there is a break in the track about 1/2 way and then also by your sink area (bet your sink area is always wet) on the one side of the boat and on the other side of the boat directly across from your sink area. To me it's simply a design flaw. I thought about using some type of clear caulking to fix the issue but haven't done it yet. I could be wrong but this is what I see on mine.

    VacuFlush In-Line Filter

    Can any Signature owners out there please tell me where exactly the In-Line Vent Filter is for the VacuFlush system? I looked all over the engine compartment and by the waste holding tank but I don't see it. A pic would be great if you have one but a general idea of where it's at will be fine. Think I need glasses..Thank you

    Can a TACO pull my 244 Sunesta?

    I think a lot depends on what type of towing you will be doing. A few miles on low speed city streets is very different from towing hundreds of miles at interstate speeds. i prefer to tow with excess tow capacity. brick

    It does have a through-hull drain. That company stated that I should have measured my current parts to make sure they fit. I told him if was a 70 year man would I be climbing down in the engine compartment to take measurements...Um, the answer is no! I gave them the correct serial numbers, they just didn't want to admin their mistake. I even told them that I though paying 1/2 the shipping was fare and they still wouldn't. Anyways, going back out to the boat to do some more garden hose testing on my side Portlight windows to make sure they're not leaking and will put the hose in the anchor box again. I'll figure it out one way or the other. Also, I have twin Mercruiser 260HP 5.0 MPIs. As for your manifolds, order from Basic Power Industries. They're number is (252) 728-556 and their website is Ebasicpower.com. There prices were the lowest around and the employees were awesome and very helpful. Don't know where you live but they're located on Harkers Island here in NC. They ship parts but I just went and picked them up and saved on shipping.

    The costs of dealing with middle mark up people. Why I carefully ask the seller who pays for any problems & shipping charges back & forth.. I tell them I am recoding their return procedures. That causes a hang up. Or a no problem response. I do read all the return instructions on a new retailer. Then call anyway. I have had a retailer tell me to trash 2 brand new expensive A C units. 3rd unit is running fine after 3 years.

    F150 going electric?

    Nissan had plans for 4-5 hybrid vehicles coming out 5 years ago. Then they seemed to drop the idea. The new leaf is better than the last however we have only sold one. As long as relatively cheap gas is around there just isn't a demand for hybrid or EV transportation. Not that it isn't on the way. As far as the safety concern I had to attend a four day class on safe handling and repairing of the Leaf and the battery. Proper procedure of disconnecting and isolating the EV battery and powertrain components. The funny thing is that none of the body shop people had to get trained or have any idea on how to do it if collision repair is needed. We have been contacted several times by fire companies on how to safely get into them in an emergency but there is no exact answer as it depends on the circumstances of the damage. The main disconnect is inside the car. It's a 600 pound 600 volt battery. To have that in a boat? Not me.

    That sucks. Sorry to hear about the way that supplier treated you with the exhaust parts. That's a lot of money for what appears to be a mistake on their part the way you described it. If they told you exactly what parts you needed based on the info you gave them (and I'm assuming you gave them the correct information of course) and then they send you the wrong parts is not too uncommon, actually, @#$%@# happens. But to charge you for the shipping costs of those VERY heavy parts (cast iron) and a restocking fee on top of that is insane. Maybe split the shipping cost at the most, but the restocking fee is crazy. What reason did they give you for getting the parts wrong? I'm replacing manifolds and risers also this spring. What engine(s) and what year boat? You filled up the anchor locker with water and didn't see any come in? Does the anchor locker have a thru-hull drain or does it drain to the forward bilge?

    What color to buy?

    My 2002 186 black graphics are almost virgin in appearance. We have the availability of quality. Companies are just too cheap & smart to build long lasting products. Like drug companies. Just give temporary performance / satisfaction. At top dollar.

    Bought a second home

    Hahaha, pics of the new house? Joe Miska is out of Tampa, not too far from St. Petersburg just further into the bay. He hasn't been on here for a while. We were supposed to come down and hook up with JeffK last fall, but timing got a bit complicated and the red tide was in full bloom at the time, so we cancelled it. I was actually all ready to go. Had the trailer all inspected and souped up for the long haul from MA all the way down. Very likely to come try again this year, but I think we'll be doing somewhere in the Keys. Even for you, it would be a good haul from St, Pete's to say, Islamorada.

    That’s very interesting. Wonder if fiberglass can be cleared? Vinyl graphics will probably curl if applied before, but could certainly be applied post. mpm330’s right on about those pesky water spots. I’ve found a water-vinegar solution and a flat cotton dust mop takes them right off with a few minutes of effort. Depending on use, every other week to once per month keeps her nice and shinny.

    Europeans have had short range electric delivery vans for decades. England is who I first read about.

    What color to buy?

    All colors of cars sit out ALL YEAR, AROUND THE WORLD. But they do not fade or chalk up. Great clear coats. The boat companies were VERY slow to use auto clear coats. DDUUUUHHH
