Jeff,

Are you sure that it is a 125657? I searched http://www.burkert-usa.com and was unable to find that part number. I sent burkert-usa.com and email requesting information, but also wanted to verify the part number with you.

Best,

Jeff;

The manufacturer of the valve on Kokomo is Burkert and the part number is 125657. It is a 24V 1/2" valve female threaded both sides.

We could not find the same in Turkey quickly, so a local marine supplier was able to find an equivalent with exact same electrical and plumbing connections. 1/2 hour of work and so far everything is working fine.

Exactly, the valves are 24VDC solenoid-controlled to open and spring-loaded to close. The solenoid is stronger than the spring, so when these valves get corroded, they will stick open. 

I do not have the part number of what Jabsco calls "water control solenoid valve," but every 54 owner should have two of them as spares

Hello Jeff;

We had a similar issue with both heads at the same time. However the solenoid valves would close after pressing the water switch several times.

There is a three wire connector at the back of the solenoid valve. I believe when you press the water valve button, power is applied and the valve opens to allow water into the bowl. When power is removed, the closure is by some mechanical means. That explains why removal of power or connectors does not assist in valve closure.

We changed both valves and all is well. It may be possible to open the valve and repair the issue, but I wanted it fixed now and left the valve repair as some future project.

Good Morning Amelians,

Recently, my forward head began an unprompted overflowing of fresh water. The 54 uses fresh water to flush the toilets. I had to shut off the fresh water pump to de-pressurize the fresh water system to stop the flow.

I tried to disconnect the various wires on the switch, with the hope that one would stop/start the flow. There is on option on the switch that activates flow, so I was trying to determine if the switch (and specifically that option on the switch), was defective.

Unfortunately, after every combination of wires were disconnected, including total disconnection, the flow continued whenever I re-pressurized the fresh water system.

Further investigation revealed that there is, what appears to be a black junction box where the fresh water hose is routed through. I'm wondering if there is a valve within, that is activated by the switch starting/stopping f low.

Could the valve be stuck open? Has anyone experienced this problem? I'm assuming that the 53 may have a similar valve, only it allows salt water flow.

To temporarily use that toilet, I disconnected the hose going into the toilet, and deadheaded the hose. A bucket of water from the sink was used to flush. At the time, it was effective to allow the temporary use of that crapper.

I'm not aboard, and won't be for about 5 weeks.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards to All.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Can 24V circuit be available during batteries replacement?

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

The answer depends on the batteries and your charger. 

And if I were you, I would leave one pair of batteries connected while you change the remainder, then change that one pair last.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alwgrip paint for the mast

Patrick McAneny
 

Paul, I painted my entire main mast and touched up the mizzen mast with a standard alwgrip color and it was a perfect match. I am not on the boat and it was several years ago , thus do not remember the name of the color. I would take off the small access panel on the side of the mizzen mast , take it to an awlgrip dealer to match the color with their color chart.

Hello
Does anyone know what type of Alwgrip paint is used for the mast and boom? And Colour code?
We have some corrosion that need to be attended.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Can 24V circuit be available during batteries replacement?

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Thomas,

Last December when I changed my house batteries, I simply put the battery charger in “power supply” mode.

1) I switch the power supply off
2) removed all the house batteries
3) make sure none of the cable connected to the batteries could touch (I put paper towels and tape on the connectors)
4) change the mode of the battery charger to “power supply”
from there my fridge, freezer, pumps work normally.

When you are ready to install your new batteries, make sure to switch off the charger, then change it back to (lead batteries or what ever you are using).

unending flow

JEFFREY KRAUS
 

Good Morning Amelians,

Recently, my forward head began an unprompted overflowing of fresh water. The 54 uses fresh water to flush the toilets. I had to shut off the fresh water pump to de-pressurize the fresh water system to stop the flow.

I tried to disconnect the various wires on the switch, with the hope that one would stop/start the flow. There is on option on the switch that activates flow, so I was trying to determine if the switch (and specifically that option on the switch), was defective.

Unfortunately, after every combination of wires were disconnected, including total disconnection, the flow continued whenever I re-pressurized the fresh water system.

Further investigation revealed that there is, what appears to be a black junction box where the fresh water hose is routed through. I'm wondering if there is a valve within, that is activated by the switch starting/stopping flow.

Could the valve be stuck open? Has anyone experienced this problem? I'm assuming that the 53 may have a similar valve, only it allows salt water flow.

To temporarily use that toilet, I disconnected the hose going into the toilet, and deadheaded the hose. A bucket of water from the sink was used to flush. At the time, it was effective to allow the temporary use of that crapper.

I'm not aboard, and won't be for about 5 weeks.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Best Regards to All.

Can 24V circuit be available during batteries replacement?

Hi all,


Can the 24V circuit be available if the chargers are on, when batteries have been removed -for example to be replaced and things get delayed...?


Thanks

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Alwgrip paint for the mast

I'd like to know what the colour is too....I need to touch up some places.
The Awlgrip colour card has a lot of whites on it, nothing just called White.
Maybe Olivier knows what it is ? 
Cheers

Hi Bob,
   Does the 55 have the same off-white or eggshell color that the Super Maramu has?   I was next to a 64 in Martinique and she seemed to have a brighter white than earlier models.

Paul, I touched up the spars on Renaissance  using "Stark White" its a standard awlgrip color and was specified by amel. The match was perfect.

Hello

Does anyone know what type of Alwgrip paint is used for the mast and boom? And Colour code?

We have some corrosion that need to be attended.

Heck yeah,  if there is a standard Awlgrip color for the mast/boom let me know.  I bought the canned stuff just for touch up.  I don't know if it would be the correct solution for a larger job.

Paul,

I had a chip repaired on the center of the helm wheel. I think it is the same color as the masts. I asked the guy if he had to mix the color. He told me no, that it was AwlGrip standard color White. I would check the AwlGrip color card. 

I hope this helps.

Interesting 
I asssume it was not Alwgrip paint but Car refinishing paint?
It's very practical to have it in spray cans

Hello All, 


Anyone in the south of U.K.? I'll be in the area between Weymouth and Poole for the next couple months. Would be great to catch up or go for a sail, without my boat though. Here for family reasons. 


Cheers,

Hi Paul,
   Don't know the Awlgrip code but I had a NAPA autoparts store in the US mix up the "Renault Panda White 348" and put it in 4 spray cans for $50 USD.  Color matches my 1990 mast perfectly.  

Paint guy said with that code any paint shop can make it.   

The spray cans are just like large Rustoleum cans one would buy in the store.

  Regards,  John

I have a photo of the exact mix label if you need it.  I think I posted it on the Amel FB page.
