      Hi Lazy Daze,

      I'm a new boater owner of a 1999 240 Sundancer. I want to charge the batteries (3) using my shore, home ac power. My battery selector switch has 3 positions.....What position should it be on? Also, do I need to turn both the AC panel on and the Inverter switch on?

      Thank you ahead!

      Hi Dennis:
      There's a selector switch located inside a cabinet with a clock like face in the rear of the boat. The switch has 4 positions: 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. I need help figuring what position the selector switch should be in when starting, when boating on the lake, when parked in the driveway, and when charging the batteries?

      Thank you!

      Hi Dennis. I saw your post from last year on the 3way quick disconnect fogging modification for MPI engines but I couldn't see the diagram or photos. Any chance you could email them to me? I would greatly appreciate it.

      Hey Dennis! I am installing my gps puck on Friday, and need to drill a 1" hole on my deck at the base of the windshield. I was wondering - do I just use a regular drill bit for that? Any advice is appreciated! glenn

      Dennis,

      What do you recommend to use for reseating and sealing the Drain Plug Flange? I recently used 3M Marine Adhesive/Sealant Fast Cure 4000 UV. It forms a firm, rubbery waterproof seal. Its flexibility allows for the dissipation of stress caused by shock, vibration, swelling or shrinking. Designed for marine applications above and below the waterline. I'm concerned however that the flange will bond strongly to the fiberglass preventing me from one day having to remove it. Is this a valid concern with this product? Should I have used something else?

      Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice.

      Dennis, I have a neighbor looking for a used fresh water boat with no bottom paint... No trailer needed, about a 25' DA... Please send me your contact info at Peter's so I can direct him your way...

      Merc changes recommendations from year to year - I don't know why. Check your owner's manual to be sure, but it may recommend 100 hours or end of season (whichever comes first).

      Aside from that, is this your first year with the boat? Normally I would say you'd be fine to wait a bit, but in this case (if your manual says - not the dealer - 20 hours) I'd recommend doing it right away. I doubt this would, in reality, happen, but you could get yourself into a warranty denial scenario.

      Hope this helps,
      Dennis

      You have helped me before so i hope you dont mind the pm. My 195 w/ 5.0 tks has 24 hours. How important is it that the 20 hour maintenence be performed on time. Can it wait til 30 or 40 or should i take the time to get it done asap? Thanks
