"Robert, it just occurred to me that another thing that you can do before you start making changes is to close the sea water intake thruhull when not flushing the toilet. If that eliminates your problem then you'll know it's definitely an…"

"Thank you James. I am really quite sure the trouble is in the in hose rather than the brown water out. The latest theory here is the wear plate between the impellor and the housing may be worn causing  loss of the seal which is the only…"

"Hi Mike, Thanks for your prompt suggestions. Yes the Jabsco 37010 is the base model electric toilet. Since posting I have examined the plumbing in closer detail and you are correct in saying there are no vented loops, simply short hose runs from the…"

BACKFILLING TOILET ON OCEANIS 43

Hello all,The front head on our 43 has, after 6 years of perfect operation, begun filling with clean sea water after use; the only way to stop the inflow is to close the inlet seacock. I have replaced the joker valve, I feel fruitlessly as it is on the outlet side of the system.Question: Is there a valve fitted on inlet side of the Jabsco 37010, as in the manual toilet, and/or do Beneteau fit an anti syphon or vented loop in their standard Oceanis toilet plumbing. I have had a reasonably good…See More

"Mike, Thanks for the prompt response. Sadly we do not have a square box on the pos terminal as Liberte is fitted with AGMs with the standard small (10mm) stainless bolt. I will look further downstream for a fuse or a fuseable link carrying out…"

"Robert, yes there is a fuse that could be your problem. It could either have failed or the contact surfaces could be corroded enough to prevent current flow through it. It's a small box shaped square that sits on the Red + post of the House…"

"Michael, We had the same trouble and it turned out to be the circuit breaker/swwitch in the aft cabin adjacent to the batteries. Initially it went high resistance so it showed 12.7 volts but would not carry the current required then it went open…"

I saw your question about the wiring in the B43 cockpit table. Our's is a US built and has a socket on top of the table for a lamp. There is a switch on the front of the table tha turns the lamp on/off. I hope this helps.

Mike
