all knowing list...

I am finding water migrating from the aft area through the limber hole into the center bilge area. See picture. I have encountered the leaking aft water tank and change out that tank previously. I do not believe it is the aft shower drain either. I am open to other ideas.

We had the rear AC condensation pump fail and then it used the gravity drain which exits behind the engine and comes thru those limber holes. Keep us posted

Like Peter we too had the rear AC condensation pump fail. It took quite some time to find as I never saw any condensation in the pan beneath the unit. Somehow it was missing the pan and dripping into the bilge and through the limber holes. Rather than replace the condensation pump, which have a high failure rate, I re-plumbed the drain tube into a large plastic bottle I fixed in the bilge below the AC unit. I then ran a tube from the bottle to a venturi device that I installed in the discharge hose just before it exits the hull. While I bought all the parts separately Mermaid makes a kit that has everything you need.

Good luck

Mike

Does anyone know what the actual color of the wheel covering is? Mine needs a little T&C, some leather dye, not sure if its dark red or something else? Want to match it first try.ThanksSee More

"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
