Recommissioning of Electronics

I have identified a couple of instances where some of the electronics required recalibration.I am the second owner of our Ben OC 43, and am seriously considering returning all the electronics to factory default setting, and re-performing a full commissioning process.Does anyone know the distance from the water-line to the depth transducer?  This is the only measurement I don't have, but need to recommission.Again, I have a 2009 Ben OC 43.Regards,-Brendan See More

"Chris - I ordered the service kit the day you replied.  When I installed the new parts, I couldn't see any damage to the old valves or diaphragm, so I was skeptical, but worked like a charm! Thanks for your help! -Ross"
