Volvo D3-110 Sensor - Spare Sensor Sets

Rudolf Waldispuehl
 

Dear Amelia’s  

 

Because our Volvo D3-110 is running with some sensors, I try to find out which of those are most important and vital to have as spare. I do have the D3-110 C and I’m quite happy with it, but I feel better to have those sensors who could fail as spare.

 

Does anyone have a list and a source of those vital sensors?

Can anybody let us know which of those you have spare and where you ordered them?

 

@Bill Rose: Do I need to have all these sensors with isolated ground? Not sure about these?

I found some with 3 Pins, four pins and also 2 pins. The “m prop valve” Sensor has only 2 pins and therefore most likely not with isolated ground?? Correct?

Hope to get some feedback about the mystery - sensors ;-)
Happy Sailing

Hi-

Installing a Victron 3600 Watt Auto 115/230 V  Isolation Transformer- Im selecting the spot- I beleive it might go right in the small area underneath and forward of the chart table.  
Question: any persons know how load these are?  More or less than a Muliplus?

Thanks, Arno,

Penetrating oil and brute force   now have the spindles turning. I'll keep up that application until  they are free.

Hi,

Yes the central spindle does pull out from the top. It can be stubborn at times but it should come out once you have removed the two or three inserts that sit at the top of the tower where the spindle sinks into.
You may need to use some penetrating oil to free them up a bit more.

Re: Laden Washing Machine power problem?

Kevin Schmit
 

Update: I’ve been able to confirm I do have power to that outlet.

Now to open up the back of the washing machine to see if I can ascertain why the unit won’t power on.

More to come…

Re: Running larger battery charger cables

Bill Kinney
 

If you drill holes here, be sure to figure out how you are going to make them waterproof after running the cables.   This is one of the watertight bulkheads that is critical to making an Amel, an Amel.  The engine room is by far the most likely place to have water entering the boat in an unplanned manner.  That is a big enough problem, but having holes which allow that problem to spread unchecked to the rest of the hull has the potential to turn a big problem into a disaster.


Many of the older Amels I have been on have some, or in a few cases all, of the watertight bulkheads compromised by unthinking modifications.

If you have an Amel savvy surveyor, one of the first things he’ll look for is holes in what are supposed to be watertight bulkheads.

Re: Laden Washing Machine power problem?

 

Kevin if you are using shore power in Newport, it is 60 hertz and will ruin the washer. 

There is no other breaker, except for the main 220-volt breaker and the main breaker on the side of the Onan. If you are not using shore power you might unplug the washer from inside the adjacent cabinet and with an extension cord, use one of the other sockets in the galley.

Dear Amelians,

Successfully completed two complete wash loads and went to do a third and noticed no power to the washing machine.  I checked the circuit breaker on the 220 volt panel and not tripped, I reset anyways.  I checked the primary 220 volt master breaker inside the cabinet (lift up door), not tripped but reset that one as well.  I confirmed the washing machine was plugged into the wall outlet but I notice the green light on the plug is not illuminated.  It appears that washing machine outlet has no power.  Is there another breaker located somewhere that I have not found for that outlet?

attaching sails and aft cabin lee board

Eric Freedman
 

The shock cord that holds the lee board in my cabin has seen better days.
It is behind the door to the head.
Does anyone know how to get to the ends of the shock cord?

Has anyone devised a method of attaching the furling sails to the foils without tying them on?

Re: Running larger battery charger cables

Jose Venegas
 

Bill,
Two years ago, I replaced my chargers for  Mastervolt 60 amp and 100 amp.  According to the specs for the 100 am charger a cable AWG2 is perfectly fine and thus it can be connected to the batteries with the standard cables of our boat.  I would not spend the effort changing them. If you want to add extra safety you can connect in parallel the cables going for each of the two battery chargers.  I kept the same cables of the original 30 and 60 amp charger cables for the 60 and 100 amp chargers without any problem.

Re: Preventing Bow Thruster drop during service

Jose Venegas
 

Hi Eric,
Until about 3 or 4 years ago I used the recommended method that you describe, using  not one but two hose clamps to make sure I will not drop the BT into the water, or worse, on the ground as it happened to Delos years ago.  Initially, I was passing the line through the propeller space as Ian does but I realized that if the line is properly adjusted it is not necessary and it keeps the BT in a safe and stable position before uncoupling the trunk from the motor to mount the wood-line gadget.  If I had to do it in the water I would still use the hose clamps but also use the line for further safety.

Re: Mounting a life raft on the SM railing

Jose Venegas
 

Thank you Eric, I currently have a Viking 6-persons (to be politically correct) raft and have carried it on the same locker as you with the ditch bag for 10 years.  However, It and I are both becoming old,  So, before heading to the pacific I am replacing it with the same size Viking but on the plastic box which is suitable for rail mounting and easier to deploy in an emergency.  I hope that moving it to the starboard rail should also improve quite a bit Ipanema's list to port.
Best times,
