Day 1 on the boat
Day 1 of the installation work on the boat went pretty well, as is often the case some things I though would be tricky turned out to be straightforward and some things that should have been easy turned out not to be so, fortunately only one problem cropped up, that will take some time to fix but is easy to do and will not cost anything.
Fitting the trunking to the heater in its final position would be tricky so I ran the trunking first so I could fit it to the heater outside of the locker then move it in. There were two issues with the kit:
- The documentation said you have to split the unit to remove the output grill before fitting the ducting, WRONG!. The grill now removes with a simple twist.
- The duct to heater connection is very short and there is no jubilee clip supplied so it was down to the chandlery for one.
|The duct is protected from being crushed by cans etc. in the locker.
Update June 2022
Update December 2023
|The view from what will be the outboard and (hidden) side
with the unit upside down, the air inlet will hang down clearing
|All done apart from securing the cables etc - I left the fitting
and plastic conduit I needed at home 😒
