I just bought a 2001 Chaparral Signature 300. The AC works great, but neither my marine surveyor or the previous owner knows how to switch the system over to the heater. Apparently there is a sequence of buttons to push on the on/off panel along with the thermostat?? Does anyone know how to do this? Any help or advice would be appreciated.
OffTheGrid posted a topic in Boat TalkHello Friends, This is my first season with my 04 - Signature 290. I have had a great experience with this boat so far. All was going well until I tried an overnight. I was connected to shore power and getting good readings on my breaker panel. I put the AC unit on and set the thermostat. It was taking a while to cool but the ducts had good flow and the air was chilled. I put the kids to bed and then watched a movie in the cockpit.... AC pumping good. Then we decided to go to be about 2-3 hours later. I went into the cabin and it was literally chilly! Felt great to get in bed with the cool conditioned air. Thermostat was not satisfied by the the temperature I set at 68 degrees but it was reading 73 degrees and felt nice. Then this happens: I wake up at 3:00am in a sweat! For some reason it was an oven in the cabin. I could hear the compressor and the air-conditioner running. Sounded like it always does however the ducts did not have any airflow! Felt like the unit had athsma. Previously the time I had used the air conditioner it was for short amounts of time and worked great. What I did was shut the unit down and open the windows. This was not the greatest plan because it was hot and muggy out but still needed air. After waiting 1.5hrs I tried running the unit again. Seemed to kick on again and start working properly. Has anyone had an experience like this before? I have some ideas on what it could be but I wanted to know first if anyone has had this happen to them before I go trouble shooting something thats been diagnosed and fixed. Figured it can't hurt to ask. Appreciate any and all responses.
Curious question about my 285SSX. Dealer has been great, did a real short familiarization, doing the full thing next year. In the meantime though I was wondering what I can/can’t run off of battery power. The radio works for sure, but would the TV, microwave, refrigerator, and AC run or does those require shore power?
