Hi, everybody - new members Ron and Lexi here (Baysalor and
Salorlady, respectively).

I didn't realize how little I knew about my Connie (vintage 1988,
named Vintage Port) until I read all the entries on this site. I'm sure
that I'll be tapping everyone's brains on a regular basis.

And, Pete37, you scare the dickens out of us with your reports of
things starting to break at regular intervals after 20 years. We have
been lucky so far - no major things have broken, but this past winter
hammered us to death with freezing water lines, cracked water
valves, faucets, and the pump body on the fresh water pump

But my first question to the forum is:

1. What is the EMERGENCY CROSSOVER used for? It is a part of the
fuel manifold.

2. How do I know what fuel tanks I am running off of?

3. What tank does the genset pull from?

We are year-round live-aboards on the South River, just south of
Annapolis, Maryland.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

We look forward to chatting with every soon.

Ron and Lexi

Hi Ron and Lexi - Wow!  Living aboard on South River in the winter must be fun.

  1.) I'll try to help with the Emergency Crossover.  As it was explained to me at Hoffmasters in Occoquan, VA.  When in EC mode, you are drawing from the tank with the most fuel (depending upon whether you're on aft or forward tanks).   I'm sure some else will have a better explanation.

2.) There should be valves next to the EC valve which allow you to run on port or aft tanks.

3.) To the best of my knowledge, the genset pulls from the port side.  And I believe it pulls from the forward tank only.  Does anyone else know otherwise??

I hope this helps.
