Bill,
I ordered one in 24 volts so my wiring was easier.
I mounted the annunciator on the side of the companionway next to the amel no water annunciator. I then which is right next to the breaker panel and hooked it into the cabin lighting breaker.
It was then easy to run the sender wire along the width of the compartment with the autopilot drive and follow the wires down in the port cockpit locker and then to the hose.
Fair winds,

Thanks Eric,

I bought one some time ago on your recommendation. I just have not
installed it because it operates on 12 volts. However, so does the
engine. I will install it tomorrow.

Any hints on the installation?

Regards,

Bill

You might also think of adding a high temperature alarm to the water
exhaust hose of th engine.
it goes off at 150 degrees at a temperature low enough to save the
hose and the muffler. you can see
what happens if you do not have one . there is a picture of my
melted muffler in the photo section.
the alarm costs about $90- from Borel manufacturing in the
USA. it
is a one hour install.
My muffler melted along with hose damage and the engine high temp
alarm never went off.

Great Post Bill,

This is a routine maintenance that I hadn't even thought
of doing. I will add it to the rowing list.
