Hi Ian and Judy,

Our 30A Dolphin charger died too, a few of years ago.
We replaced it with a much more sophisticated unit - ProMariner ProNautic 2430P from Defender
It has selections for every known battery type plus custom settings.
It fitted perfectly in the space taken by the Dolphin 30.

All the guff is here :


It hasn't missed a beat.

Hi Danny , 

Sounds as though you have the same set up as we do. 
The Dolphins take up very little space but they do take up all the space available . 
If Reya say that they can't repair my 30 ah ( same size as the 50 ah ) then the challenge will be to find a new charger which can fit the save of the old one . 
Unfortunately it seems that in the last 17 years chargers seem to have grown bigger ! 
If anyone has successfully found an alternative that fits the space it would be good to hear .

Kent,


Your problem is not from a check valve, but from air that is entrained under the boat filling the seachest.

Like every design decision on a boat, the seachest has its good points--and its problems.  One of the issues is that when sailing, it fills with air. If you have ever put a video camera under your boat when sailing, you've seen a steady stream of bubbles flowing from bow to stern even at relatively modest speeds.  Every one of those bubbles that manages to go under the main intake thru-hull rises up and displaces water from the seachest.  After a fairly short time, the seachest is full of air.  

This means that any pump drawing out of the seachest, needs to clear a fairly significant volume of air before it can pump water.  I suspect this dry run time on every startup underway is part of the reason so many people have had such troublesomely short lifespans from impellers on their gensets.

Of course, this happens with every thru-hull, no matter if there is a seachest or not.  The issue with the seachest is that it can hold a LOT more air than a simple hose connection.

The previous owner of Harmonie installed a very small pump plumbed from the seachest manifold to to the cockpit scupper that can be used to clear this air before running either of the engines.

I think with the toilet flush pump, you'll just have to live with the delay, unless somebody has a solution I haven't thought of yet!

Onan Zinc and Outdated Marine Electronics Repairs

pstas2003 <no_reply@...>
 

Hello to all.

Recently, I went to change the zinc on the Onan Generator, and when I unbolted the plug, I found the old zinc corroded in place.  At first I thought I would drill it out and replace it with a new one. Then the thought occurred to me, “why not just wait until it dissolves on its own”?  

Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

I also wanted to pass along some information.  

Recently I began to have trouble with an old Raymarine RL80C Chart Plotter.  I contacted Dan Gerhardt who had been recommended on this forum, but he doesn’t repair chart plotters.  He recommended I call Steve Senft at Jaytron in Florida (steve at marineelectronics dot com - 941-748-1941). After trouble shooting things on the phone with him, I ended up sending the unit to him.  Unfortunately, after spending a number of hours on it, it was determined it was too far gone.  However, he sold me a used unit he had in house for about the same cost as the repair would have been.  

Based on my experience, I can highly recommend him for those of you who have some old equipment that you may not be ready to replace just yet, and need repair assistance.  He spent a good deal of time with me on the phone and via email, and helped me get what I needed for a very fair price.  He also moved me up in line so I would have a unit back in my hands, in time to travel back to the boat this weekend.

I hope someone will find this information useful and thank you in advance for any responses regarding the Onan Zinc.

All the best,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] unending flow

Jeff,

I have been trying to get the specifics on the solenoid fresh water flush valve on your 54. I have only been able to verify that it is Burkert type 6213, but not sure of the exact variant.

If I do not get back to you in the next 48 hours, I suggest doing the following:

Using the attached drawing, disassemble the valve, clean it and reassemble it using silicone grease on all rubber-like parts.
And/Or - Order a replacement from Amel taking a photo of the numbers on the valve.

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.

Mohamad,

Now, you have part of it...see the following link: http://www.burkert-usa.com/en/type/6213

But, there are 20-30 variations of the 6213 and none of the variations list 125667.

So, maybe it is discontinued and/or replaced.

I believe that Amel did not use the Jabsco brand control valve which is shown in that video, rather used a much better German made control valve made by "Burkert and the part number is 125657." Amel has a history of using Burkert control valves. The solenoid for the cooking gas(z) is made by Burkert and it rarely fails...and it costs 3-4 times more than the typical West Marine solenoid valve. It is likely that the BURkert can also be cleaned.

Mohammad and Aty on B&B Kokomo is the one that gave me the part number of 125657, which I have not been able to locate. I think something is wrong with that part number.

A local electrician has pronounced a problem with the circuit board. I have written to Reya to see if they will repair it, but they are not known as quick correspondents.


The thing I love about the Dolphin charger is that it is small and light ( less than 5 kg ).  To replace it means finding another which is no more than 28cm  high and  34 wide.  The depth isn't critical.


Has anyone had success in 


a) getting Reya to repair an old Dolphin,   or


b) finding a suitable alternative which can fir in the same space ?

Bob,

I believe that Amel did not use the Jabsco brand control valve which is shown in that video, rather used a much better German made control valve made by "Burkert and the part number is 125657." Amel has a history of using Burkert control valves. The solenoid for the cooking gas(z) is made by Burkert and it rarely fails...and it costs 3-4 times more than the typical West Marine solenoid valve. It is likely that the BURkert can also be cleaned.

Mohammad and Aty on B&B Kokomo is the one that gave me the part number of 125657, which I have not been able to locate. I think something is wrong with that part number.

Best,
