    The short leg is for a sun pad and that folding cushion (if it's not for the v-berth) goes on top of the table to make the sun pad. The flap should hook to snaps under the table.

    Thanks, unfortunately I do not have a shower, just a head. Will need to do some more investigating. And see if there is a pan drain hose and where where it goes. Hopefully just some of the spray foam came loose and clogged it. Is that pump by the garbage can in the step? My high step is a garbage can

    Ahh so you can combine the two rear seats in the middle.
    I thought maybe on the bow but didn't find where the snaps would line up

    Thanks for the help everyone
    Fixed the tach and speedo last weekend Water pump for the fixtures seems to be working great and have good pressure everywhere. Big thing this weekend is fixing the ac condensating drain issue.

    Buddy has a 2006 rinker 270 and was impressed with how well the dancer handles compared to his. Longest ride on the boat yet, 30 miles round trip

    Hey all - first post here.

    We just bought an older 2000 240DA, and am still getting the hang of it. One thing we found is that the refrigerator only works on shore-power. Had it looked at but the dealer didn't have any option available (short of replacement). Any thoughts on repair/part for the DC side of it? They did confirm that DC power is making it to the fridge.

    It's a Dino DC-65 model.

    Thanks!

    I have no pump, there is a tee in line with the discharge water line. The side out of the tee has a 5/16" hose that runs to and lays in the pan. Assuming this is a Venturi system. Found the tube was clogged so cleaned it out. Anyone else have or seen that system?

    Leakage!

    I have a nasty leakage on my 240, but wondering where the water is entering? My best guess is windowframe / deck.. Anyone experienced the same?

    2004. No, not yet... but bought boat with full year warranty, so informed also my dealer. Just want to have idea what are the possible 'weak' points, where the water can enter..

    G'day all,
    I have a 2003 240 sundancer and i was just wondering if anyone else has had trouble with the switch pad that controls all of the minor functions like bilge pump, lights etc. Since I'm located in Australia i'm finding it hard to track down a replacement. Anyone point me in the right direction, are these parts still available in america and if so where?
    Cheers Chris

    Neither can we. In fact we often experience a power fade then surge when engine is over 3,600 rpm. We've had the fuel tank cleaned, fresh fuel and new filters and new high pressure fuel pump, but still the same fade and surge. Runs for hours at 3,400 rpm beautifully. Has anyone else had this problem?

    well , the numbers at boattest are simply fake. every 240 owner can confirm that 47 mph measured by gps are simply not in the cards with the 5.0 mpi. the highest i ever reached by gps was 40 mph , and that was with just me and little fuel .

    Hi,
    I ordered new side curtains from great lake (former owner had lost), and now i have a complete canvas.
    But, previous owner had lost / destroyed canvas frame also, and i`m gonna make new ones from stainless steel.
    Please, could someone take a measurement from front and rear, the strait part of frame (approx), from side support to the point where curve begin.
    Those measurements are marked in the picture. I`ll really appreciate if someone will help me with the measurements.
    Thx, Miikka

    The front one is 40" from the bottom to where it begins to curve. The back one is 36". That's not including the bracket at the bottom of the frame.

    Thank you soooo much!! That helps a lot.
    Is that back one really shorter than the front one? In pic it looks like the front one is shorter..?
    My Dancer is 1998 if its matter.
