Well, after spending $1,700 on 12.5KW Westerbeke BEG generator to get it up and running again, I decided to replace the 2 built in fuel filters. One was a fuel water seperator type and was easy. The second was a spin on type that's attached the "gas denser." Well, the upper part of the fuel filter is screwed into a fitting on the copper pipe that had threads above the copper pipe's fitting as well. See that, I figured I had to back the nut off the upper part of the fitting - W R O N G ! ! ! I twisted the stupid copper pipe fitting straight off! Another $300 later and I have a new part back on the generator and it's up and running again.
Last weekend, we arrived late at the HB after dinner to find the cabin awefully hot. The thermostat didn't have any power, so I check the breaker and nothing was tripped. G R E A T ! The next repair has already begun! I dug into the control panel for my marine air and immediately see a burned up circuit board.
Now I'm working with my boat's manufacturer and Dometic to try to get the parts overnighted to me so I might be able to sit inside the boat this HOT holiday weekend. Parts and freight will likely run me another $800 for this, but I can do the labor myself.
So damn tired of crap breaking all the time!
