    Central heating webasto

    Thanks guys, seems to me that the water was being heated by a 240 v heating element in the calorifier and was being circulated using the 240 heating pump pictured earlier. I he webasto was obviously decommissioned to make it easier to run when moored yo with 240 hook up. now it’s all working properly again I can have all the comforts whilst out and about

    It was all there! Luckily the only part I’ve had to get is a wiring loom, now I know it’s working all the rads etc can come out to be replaced and replumbed

    Has anybody got pictures of the wiring on their webasto setups please? I’ve got a complete new loom to go in but I’m a bit confused as to how to wire up the 7 day timer

    Freshwater pump recommendations

    I too am looking for a new pump for mine and from what I can see the jabsco ones seem quite good, mind you my one is leaking like mad but I gather from looking at it the thing is probably 20 years old at least. I’m going to stick with the jabsco as I’ve heard good things about them

    I am going to fully service the webasto burner and try for a re-wire. I suspect its it’s a major wiring fault as there’s cut wires and badly crimped ones all over the place. The wiring is an absolute mess and from what I can see from the manual it doesn’t match the diagrams on there. il do a full rewire and service as per the manual and hopefully it will burst into life

    Can anybody confirm if this is the right loom for my webasto burner? The eBay item number is : 111634339457 ive ordered a bog standard 12v timer switch off eBay and am hoping maybe that with a new wiring loom and the 12v timer switch the heater should fire up? im having a nightmare with this atm! Just want to get it up and running!

    Rule shower waste box

    Looks like I will be getting a whale gulper then! the only reason I thought about the rule shower box was that it is automatic and the fact we will have kids onboard seemed sensible so we didn’t have a flooded bathroom every time they had a shower

    Hi anybody use these and are they any good? I am about to buy one As I’m refitting the boat and just want to make sure I get the best I can buy for sensible money

    Yeah the engine is all running, the whole interior has been ripped out, all the flooring framework has been replaced with half the ply done now, it it was a very good deal but at this point several grand has gone into it and it hasn’t scratched the surface the guy guy whom I bought the boat off is a really nice man and done me a good deal so can’t complain about that. just a few annoying little things to sort, central heating being one! i removed another load of panelling from under the gunnels today to find several holes, some with silicone squeezed through and the others with bolts, I’d imagine by the age of it it was done many years ago by a total jack **** at least they over played it I guess....

    Central heating webasto

    Yeah tell me! I’ve found loads of issues, I’ve had to rip most of the interior out, I’ve removed over 200 litres of water out the bulge, leaking water pump, leaking shower, leaking kitchen tap , leaking waste pipe. Upon lifting the rotten floor up all the timber frame was rotten so had to replace all of that. Still loads ads of water appearing inside so removed wall panels to find every single window leaking plus all the framework was rotten or soaking wet so had to replace all that too! This boat has been a nightmare and I’m knee deep with it atm and it’s costing a lot of money! Oh and when I was in the bedroom the other day glaring out the window the whole ceiling decided to collapse on my head! Literally the whole thing just let go on top of me! I wasnt ammused!

    I spoke to the previous owner today who seemed surprised it had a webasto heater onboard! Hopefully the chap tomorrow can have a look and advise as what the best option is, my trail of thinking and gut tells me rip it all out, reuse the rads, reinstall the webasto from scratch with all new wiring and add a control panel and associated loom and see where that takes me, can’t be any worse than what it is now!

    Central heating webasto

    I’ve got somebody coming out tomorrow to have a look, i had a thought ... the boat was moored up as a liveaboard maybe the webasto was disconnected and the central heating pump installed so they could have central heating using the heater in the calorifier?

    Should that central heating pump be there? All of the plumbing is quick fit plastic pipes except the pipe from the pump to the rad which is copper
