  1. Just noticed that when I disconnect from shore power I outlets on my 2003 260 signature are not working, and perhaps the refrigerator (not sure). I checked the fuses, and the GFCI oulets all are okay. any help would be appreciated.
  2. Thanks this forum has been a wealth of knowledge. Is it okay to have the shore power plugged in and the batteries switched on? Sometimes we will be sitting at the dock and want to turn on some music. do I need to disconnect shore power before turning on the batteries ( for the Radio)
  3. Okay Thank You, the Admiral was convinced she could charge her phone while we were out on the lake. I was unsure.

    I have a 2003 chaparral signature, I bought in April, it has run great and haven't had any problems until yesterday. I was moored on the beach and when it was time to leave my boat would start then immediately die It did this about 10 times, then we pushed the throttle down and got it to start. was able to get back to my dock, shut is down and it started back up. let it sit without shore power for about an hour tried starting it and it immediately died. Hooked it up to shore power left it over night, went to start it up and it started right up with no problems. I am afraid to take it out on lake Michigan if I can't trust it. I thinking it could be a fuel issue as I hear my fuel pump run constantly when I turn on my batteries ( is this normal) , or a battery issue. ( am I supposed to switch from shore to AC main when I am out on the water?) Any help would be appreciated.

    I went to the chaparral dealer yesterday and they told they could charge me $150.00 or I could go to Autozone and pay $40.00 of the IAC

    If/ When I need to change out the IAC, is there exact match can get at an Auto parts store? I know it will take days for the marina to get it and I assume the cost will be much more. Mercruiser 350 MPI Bravo III

    I had a buddy who is a mechanic come out, we messed with relays and the pumps started acting normally. I ordered 2 new relays and will replace them later today. Hopefully this solves it.

    I was thinking that it could be as jdsdls05 mentioned the water separator, the fuel filter, or the IAC, the fact that it started without problems today really confuses me. The wife is sure it is the charge on the battery, but it turns over, I assume like a car if the battery is dead this wouldn't even turn over.
