    Window material - Tempered Glass?

    That works.
  2. Check to see if the ground wire is connected to it.
  3. Not a problem. Shore power connected and batteries turned on, I do it all the time.
  4. For the frig to work off 12 volts you must have the house battery switch turned on, then it should switch over if 110 is disconnected.

    Kohler Generator Questions

    Both temp and water flow are good. The system is smart and will shut down if temp gets to high or water flow is to low.

    Blower hose connections?

    Hose(s) should be connected to blower(s) on one end and the other to a low point in bilge. On my boat I have two blowers and there is hose goes from the each blower to a low point by each motor. There is also a short hose going from blower to vent on starboard side of the boat. The vent on the port side has no hoses connected.

    If the Fireboy in the engine compartment has discharged the blowers will not work, fact. If it was me I would check to make sure the wire that goes to the Fireboy is connected with a good connection. It would be strange for the Fireboy to have discharged. Also don't believe it is halon. http://www.fireboy-xintex.com/marine-fire-suppression-fes-series/

    Resealing/caulking interior

    That's the stuff I have used on my boats and it does last.

    Resealing/caulking interior

    Highly suggest using something like Boat Life "Life Caulk". Bath caulk is not designed for the marine environment. Things like oil, sun, and constant movement. My 2 cents.

    Not the first time the wire harness has caused people problems on here.

    Vibration between 900 & 1200 rpm

    The mechanic said the Merc bearing had a warranty of just one year, but the Sierra is a 2 year warranty. All made in China. Just glad that I have a mechanic that would work with me and took the time to check it out. The guys here at my marina are great and one of the reasons that I keep my boat there.

    Vibration between 900 & 1200 rpm

    Problem solved! They checked alignment and it was dead on, u-joints were good. They replaced the gimble bearing with a Merc. bearing and vibration is gone. The mechanic had never seen this before. They had installed a Sierra bearing when they did all the maintenance last fall. He is going to send it back to Sierra to see what was wrong with it.
