I installed a domestic marine. ECD 16000 BTU under the galley sink. With the raw water pump under the port settee.
Update. So i Kept blowing the 15A Fuse on the control head of the Raymarine ST6001 Autopilot unit. I ended up removing every component attached to it until i had nothing left to remove and the fuse still was blowing after i applied power to the head unit. I am guessing the head unit is having some major issues. I removed it and will have to ship it back to ray marine which will take 4-6 weeks apparently. Really upsetting since i was hoping to enjoy the boat in the next few weeks.
Along the same lines, we are required by the insurance company to install a second solenoid in the propane cabin heater line, which is not currently separately switched. So I assume that I would need to order both the solenoid and a separate switch panel and install it all separately from the current switch. Any suggestions how to do that? The fact that I'm asking shows that my forte is not electrical, but it has to be simple enough to do it and learn from it.
Any ideas welcome!

Just got my new Ip 37 in the water. As of last night all the instruments worked except the autopilot and navdata since the survey. Last night we ran the engine for an hour with the instruments on and everything was working great. Today the mast went up and I connected the raymarine st60+ and that's it. I have to rewire the mast and anchor lights since I changed the plug from what was on here originally.
Now I go to turn all the instruments on and I'm
Not getting power to any single instrument in the cockpit. Any idea what the problem may be?

Just going through a 10-year update and refit on our IP370 Saguday in the UK and have been looking at my list of all the things I'd like to do but haven't got round to yet. Replacing the 'soft' vang with a rigid one such as Forespar or Selden etc is high on the list. Anyone done this on a 370 and if so which type did you decide on and how has it worked out? Ideally I'd like one that would replace the need for the topping lift, as not all can do that.

Trying to get my autopilot working and between the Autohelm Navdata and the autopilot they both will not turn on. The previous owner says they both worked a few years ago last time he used the boat. Any ideas where to start? The dealer is pretty pricey here as they are everywhere. Would really like to start learning this on my own incase anything breaks on a trip.
All of the other instruments work except these two.
