Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

nope, just the unit and controller.

i'll still need the thru hull, pump, etc.

from my research i'm finding that bronze is what's needed for the thru hull fittings...can't seem to find anything solid bronze...lots of brass fittings though.

any brand of pump considered better than the other?

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

florida boy: thanks for the advice! i do hope the 3500 btu unit will be enough -- i've ordered and paid for it, and its a special order from dometic, so not sure on sending it back!!! :? the return vent issue is well understood, as is placing the outlets up high...going to take some planning to get ...

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

florida boy: yep...i'd come across that formula :D that's why i knew i had to find the small unit i did lol. 5k btu would have been way to much...the 3500 btu should work for me...putting the unit under the v-berth -- but as cold air falls, it may be better to put it in the upper cabin? actually wha...

Advice and Opinions Please DC and Shorepower System

I'm thinking about this for my shore power install: http://www.ezacdc.com/boat-wiring-products/marine-electrical-shore-power/ I'll have some led lighting, chartplotter, radio, fridge, air conditioning, and would like a built in battery charger. specs for air conditioning: power (volt/hz/ph) 115/60/1...

Re: Bo Jest: power questions, engine type

i wanted to revive this thread to ask a quick question.... those of you with the yamaha 9.9 high thrust: which shaft length are you using -- the 20 or 25? my builder is suggesting going 12 - 15 hp for the bo jest for push against current, but as tom as said, there's enough umph left in the 9.9 if ne...

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

Bob, i looked at a bunch of portable ac units like that. from what i read on some forums, people that have them on their boats have so-so regards for them :cry: i guess they put off a lot of heat from the back, are not efficient, take up too much floor space, etc. most who used them were doing so un...

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

ordered unit and control today. all in including shipping: 1827.00

heritage can take orders for these. not much of a discount off list (10%) cause these units are "special order".

anyway, ac taken care of lol

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

For the extra weight, you could get a generator for the a/c. Then you could use it for other things. That's my plan for a water heater, stove top, Lauren's hair drier, :roll: her refrigerator, her a/c... She wants our house in half of a 24' boat. Bill your post made me smile :D all my friends keep ...

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

slug...

this ac unit is NOT 12v (although dometic makes one -- the cuddy dc). for my boat this is for use via shore power only.

i looked at the cuddy-dc and after considering xtra batteries (and their weight), and everything else i was convinced it was not the system for me.

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...

Re: air conditioning a bo jest...
