    Thanks for your help guys. I got the system to work. The seacock to the pump inlet was inexplicably partially closed for whatever reason, so I opened that up. But that wasn't enough. I had to clean out the strainer that was gunked up. Again, not enough to get it going. Finally, I had to burp the system by unscrewing the strainer for a couple seconds while the water was flowing. This did the trick. Now the cabin feels like what an airconditioned car would feel like in the Texas heat. It's definitely going to make the summer out at the lake more bearable for the family. I'm actually quite surprised at how efficient at cooling the system is, given how small it is.

    Now that I think about it, I don't think I saw any water coming out of the side when I was running it for about 20 minutes yesterday. Cleaning the strainer should be straightforward, but is there a good way to test the cooling water pump?

    Wow, thanks for the guidance. I’ll check out the system myself, but it sounds like I’ll have to find a marine AC specialist for refills. Would a dirty/clogged strainer cause the system to blow not so cold air?

    I have a 2003 240 Signature with AC that I can’t get cold air from. How do I troubleshoot this system? If this was a car AC system, I would say the system just needed a recharge. Is that something I can do myself on the boat?
