Good afternoon Gary,

I sent you an email, let me know you receive it, sometime they go to spam folder.

I know about my web site, I actually design, update web site for work, so as people say for shoe maker mine is terrible.
I do plan with time to link everything together...
I want the site to help new owner to see the boat in detail, how to repair, etc.

Since it was pretty straight forward I unfortunately did not take any pictures of the control board replacement.
just remove the top 4 bolt of the cover
remove the bolt holding the relay
remove on each side (forward and aft) of the control box 2 bolt on each side (holding little bracket inside which hold the control board).
disconnect the 2 harnesses from the control board, remove it as you can (not easy because tight space).
Note: the onan technicien that came to remove it, was very cautious about switching all the breakers off.

On facebook, I posted a picture (more detail on the whole story), I sent you a message through there as well.

The red arrow is pointed to a harness use for other gages.

I will be in San Juan until July 8, then sailing south.
Hope we meet one day!

Sincerely, Alexandre



Hi Mike:
email
you address to garysilver at mac dot com
Unfortunately we left the boat on 4
June and are back in Utah.  Would have loved to meet you.
 Great photo essays you do.  I visited your web site but
couldn't find links to all of your great work, only thru
the forum here could I access those.  Any chance I am
missing something and that I could access all those from one
place.
Would also love
to see a photo of the Onan board you replaced.  Mine is
weeping the potting compound (varnish like goo that is
driving me nuts).  It is 15 years old now so all those
years and heat have taken their toll.  I may want to obtain
a spare. 
Sincerely, 
Gary S. Silvers/v
