    Quality Time- do you know if it was a 75 or 150 PSI? Still couldn't tell from that part.

    It's a 75. I believe that's the 075 in the part # comparing to other models that start with 125 and 150.

    Since everyone has been so helpful... trying to locate replacement "screw plug/caps" that hold the shower plexiglass panels in the heads. All of them are crumbling and missing the top cap that hides the screw. Port shower has 12 that hold the plexi panel and the master has 7. Any idea where to find these? No luck at any hardware store. Thanks. Shower Screw Plugs.JPG

    When you find them, let me know! This has been at the bottom of my list for some time because I can't find them either. They are more than just a screw cap, kind of like a grommet since the smaller diameter fits into the plexi. No luck googling images of grommets or bushings...

    Big ones!
    I had the 3's and they were amazing. The X's are supposed to be a more diffused and brighter vs. the 3's. From a price and performance standpoint, they are hard to beat. You will be impressed.

    I had found a suitable replacement for them at home depot in the hardware section by accident. They are white with a snapover cap.. think they were about $0.20 per item.

    Where exactly is the Air intake manifold pressure sensor (aka Boost sensor) On a 2004 480DB QSM11? Thanks

    I've seen pics of 480DBs with "wood" floors in the Salon, Has anyone done this that would share some photos and answer a few questions? First, what did you do about the engine access panels? Does your floor come back up w/out destroying it? What material/flooring did you use? If you left a cut-out around the engine access what did you use on the edge? Sorry for all the questions but I'm about to do this and need all the input I can get. Thanks!

    Does anyone know how the fuel cross over works with the generator supply? If you switch the motor feed does it affect the gen or does the gen just always feed off the one tank?

    Ours only feeds from the port side tank. Some newer boats, I believe feed from either based on selector switch. You would see it where the fuel shutoff is..

    I've switched which tank my mains pull from before but don't believe the gen has that capability. Just on and off if I remember correctly.

    That’s what I thought, can’t imagine why it was designed that way- thanks for the responses
