Re: Shore power issue

mfmcgovern@...
 

Dean,

We had that same switch fail in a similar fashion on our Super Maramu.  On the SM, this changeover switch is located in the engine room on the port side right outboard of the generator.  It is in a gray electrical box labelled "Quai-GE" and "220 Volts" mounted on a wood board.  See the attached picture (courtesy of Bill Rouse).  I do not know if it is the same switch or is mounted in the same location on the 54.  

We ended up replacing the auto-transfer switch with this manual break-before-make switch:  https://www.bluesea.com/products/8357/AC_Rotary_Switch_Panel_65_Ampere_2_positions_%2B_OFF_2_Pole

It is a much more robust switch but it does require that you actually go into the engine room to switch from Shore Power to Generator Power.  However, that is fairly infrequent and it has been pointed out to me that is not such a bad thing as I should be checking the oil before starting the generator anyway.  

Hope this helps.

Good morning Dean,

First of all sorry for your mishap, but congratulation for the maintenance you did on the generator!

On my SM2K, cleaning well the raw water pump, eliminated the faster than expected destruction of the impellers:
http://www.nikimat.com/onan_water_pump_cleaning.html

Also you should look at what Perigee did, which is adding a filter which will catch the blade of the impeller.
I was going to installed a “Y” Valve to catch the blades, but I think Perigee system is far better.

Regarding the change over, yes it worked as expected (over riding the shore power), but I don’t know why it got stuck…
I would try shutting down all 220 volt system to see if it switch back.
I think it is the following on the SM2K, and I would suspect it is similar looking on the 54, but could be wrong:
http://www.nikimat.com/galvanic_isolator_part_2.html
6th picture, the box on the left where the
7, 8, 9, 10th pictures where it says “Quai” and “Onduleur”

Good luck and keep us posted of your finding.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi,Today’s job was to
replace the impeller in my generator.  It was shredded, so
I opened up the heat exchanger to clean it too, it was
gunged up badly, so after cleaning all that I had a look at
the exhaust elbow too, and cleaned that out as well as the
muffler. Great. Put everything back together, and started
the genny to test.  Generator worked fine but ...
I forgot when starting the genny we were
still running some things on shore power.  The genny seemed
to override shore power (as it should I believe), however,
on shutting down the generator, the shore power no longer
works.I’ve checked the dock supply and the stern
breaker - both good. But I get no light on the 240v
panel.
I’m thinking the
changeover switch has somehow stuck, but why, where is it,
how to reset it ?Or have I smoked the changeover
switch by firing up the genny while shore power is
running?So many questions!
Thoughts ?
Many thanksDeanSY

Thanks for going to all the hassle to get this info to me. I just got an answer from Maude this morning, they have the cables, and I asked her to ship them ASAP. In case you ever decide to change your cables, they are 335 euros plus shipping. After my experience, if you ever start to hear any noise or experience friction in the steering, I'd replace the racks, pinion, and cables all together.  After having taken ours apart twice, and still one to go, it is not hard once you have solved a few mysteries.

If you guys ever decide on a Hawaii vacation while we are still here, you would be welcome to stay on our boat which we keep in a very nice resort marina on West Oahu. Liz and I stay at at my parents home most of the week, and a couple of nights a week on the boat to maintain our sanity. Both my parents are in there 90's, and are requiring about as much maintenance as our old boats do. We hope to be on our way to French Polynesia in March 2019, but will have to see how things go with my folks.

You can see that I fiber glassed in a 11/2" wood block to pack out the bulkhead as well as aft of the bulkhead to also add strength . If the arm is positioned so that the rudder is on center line and the linear drive is 1/2 way extended than I would think that should be where the motor is mounted . You need to make sure you have complete travel of course. I can't remember how I determined the motor mount position, it took a little experimenting. If the rudder is hard to starboard and the drive fully extended and you marked the mount position, and then moved the rudder hard to port with the L/D fully retracted and marked that , the correct position would be half way between the marks, I would think. Just play with it before drilling the holes for the mounting. Also sending pic of the hatch I installed shortly after buying the boat , best thing I ever did . Great amount of air ,makes a hot aft cabin cool. They should have come with a hatch and do now.

Thanks Pat...it is greatly appreciated. We have modified our aft stateroom a bit by removing the fiberglass liners on both sides, building the berth on the port side out to King size at the head and queen at the foot, and adding new cabinetry on the stbd side. With that said, the area under the port berth where the drive will go, is not changed in any way that will cause an issue.

We are definitely going to do the job with your method, but not until we get the steering fixed. Any dimensions or template for the quadrant extension would save me a lot of time and energy trying to re-invent the wheel. Since I have the steering apart now, I may start to do some of the legwork in the near future. Whenever you have to time, I’d greatly appreciate it if you can send me what you have.

Thanks for your response regarding our steering. We have it on our very long list while in Hawaii this year to add a linear drive. Do you have any specs on how you modified the quadrant on the drive attachment side?  Any info you have on this would be a big help in figuring out how to make the modification.

Hi Alexandre,

The Blue Seas parts were about the same cost, but easily available in lieu of shipping from France.

I'm hoping the BT genie is happy now.  I've replaced the Limit Switches, the Actuator motor (probably due to the limit switch failure), and now the on/off switch.  Maybe now I don't have to use it with fingers crossed!

Hope all is well with you,

I’ll stick with that excuse for now anyhow ;)

We just arrived in Tenerife for the start of a 12 month (or longer perhaps) family adventure. 

Packing up house and home and school and jobs and shipping 12 months of family ‘stuff’ as hold baggage was epic. Phew. Glad that’s behind us. 

Hoping to launch fri/Monday and relax into things.  

Very much hope to meet a few of this parish in person whilst en route this year. 

Santa Cruz currently. Heading to lanzarotte as soon as we are ready and there is any hint of the wind heading less easterly. Not even sure if that happens round here at this time of year but we will see.

Good morning Duane,

I bought mine from Amel.
Amel part 2744:
http://www.nikimat.com/factures/2016_03_Amel.pdf
Paid 7 Euro each.

You can also see the “637” with 2 position (fur or unfurl sail) which is Amel part2743

For both you will need the little protective hood Amel part 2745 (same invoice) paid 2.58 Euro.

I replaced the Bow Thruster On/Off switch
and thought others might want to know what part will
work.  
The old one was
marked "APEM1, M4, 6-631H".  I could not find a
direct replacement from APEM.
The replacement I used is from Blue Seas
"Weather Deck Panel Switch #4150, Off-On, SPST"
with a Blue Seas #4138 Waterproof Boot.  By the way, the
waterproof boot will fit the old switches if you need
replacements.
The old one was
intermittently not making contact, I suspected corrosion. 
This would be a good inexpensive spare to have on hand, and
I believe Amel used it for other devices onboard as well,
for example, the Bow Thruster cut-out switch.

I believe you have to sign up for a Yahoo account (or log into it if you already have one).  Somewhere on the signup form is a semi-hidden option to use your existing email address rather than creating a new Yahoo email address -- this is the option you want, and you want to use the email address that is subscribed to this list.  I'm pretty sure that's all there is to it.

I am proud owner of an Amel Mango #71 and I have learned a great deal from this chat group. Can someone tell me how to download the files and photos? When I try to download these files, I get a message that I must be a member.... how do I do that?


Thanks
