    Does anyone know where to locate the AC water pump relay box on the 400EC ('93)?

    My forward stateroom AC is not switching the pump on and off, the salon AC is working just fine.

    Found it, located behind the main electric panel. Replaced the trigger switch, everything works as advertised.

    I bought a Dometic Sealand 510 Plus toilet with a elongated bowl from Amazon for only $271.00 and swapped the two bowls using my factory base. I saved over $600 bucks that went towards a new sound system!!

    This lock failed me last weekend while I was 50 miles away from home. Anyone know where I can find a new one?

    Although I have not specifically looked for it, I have not seen any of those in any search I have done. Thankfully mine still works.

    Anyone know where the shower sump pump power is feed from? My pump stopped working but when I checked, I also don't have power at the factory wiring. I ran temporary wire for power and ground to test the pump. It ran but then blew a 25 amp fuse. So I am figuring it had already blew a fuse or thermal breaker on the factory wiring, but I can't trace where it goes. Anyone know?

    if it is blowing a fuse on a direct wire, check the ground....if ground is good, your pump might have an issue. clean the impeller and housing. might be gummed up or have debris in it.

    I haven't been able to find one either. I have a locksmith looking for me, but until one is found here's what I've done!!

    Are the Salon bar stools still available? If they are, do you have any pix, and how much are you looking for?

    Trying to learn my new-to-me 400EC. Not sure if my battery setup is factory or not, but I have 5 total batteries. Three on the starboard side which I believe is the cranking and house batteries. I have two on the port side, of which one is for the generator I assume. And then assuming all of this is correct, I have no idea what the remaining battery is for. Suggestions?

    I don't believe that's a factory set up.
    Sounds like you've got an extra installed on the port side.
    Trace the cable and see where it's connected.
    I'd guess it's connected to the house bank.

    Yes it is factory. My '97 had the same setup. Never did find out what that extra battery was for. Could be part of the emergency start circuit. A few years ago I ran all season without connecting the hot side to that one. Never missed it. I didn't discover that it was never connected that year until I was winterizing in the fall.

    That's interesting. It isn't easy to trace as everything goes into pipes or looms, but I want to figure it out. Not sure how THIS emergency start is wired, but typically the emergency start switch just allows the port cranking battery to also crank the starboard motor. There's not typically an additional battery involved. Since you didn't miss having it, I wonder if it just adds power to the house bank?

    I have the 1998 400EC parts manual in my iPad iBooks.
    It shows the same battery set-up as my 1995 so, might not solve your quandary but, neat to have.
    PM me an email and I can send it to you :)

    Looking for a accessory switch panel, helm, silver in color. Mine is falling apart.

    Thanks, Jon
