Default 1996 Maxum 2400 SCR AC/Heat install

Looking to install a Marinaire Self Contained Marine Air Conditioner & Heat Pump 6000 BTU in our 2400 SCR is this a big enough unit and where does the factory install the intake and the vents in the cabin area?

My 2400 has factory air only, itís mounted behind the frig and two vents one in the aft cabin and the other if I recall in the main cabin above the frig. This makes running the ducts easy.

Not sure as I have never used it being in a boat rack. I can try to look it up but it will be a few days before I can. Mine is A/C only no heat.

I would assume so. My 2800 had a 6K BTU on it.

Default My experience

I have done this in a 2800 SCR. It took a 9k BTU Marinaire and we've been happy in the Virginia/Carolina heat and humidity of summer. The Install/User Guide (attached) on page 13 has the recommended volume formula for sizing. Two important items - first, the space that the unit is installed in needs a "return" grate so it can pull air from your cabin to cool or heat. I put a piece of filter material behind it to reduce having to clean the coils/fins of the Marinaire unit which will otherwise accumulate dust and dirt that reduces efficiency over time. Second, you need to move the temperature sensor that is by default on the side of the unit. It needs to go inside the cabin (I put mine in the exterior of the return grill). Since it sounds like you need to install this in the space where the fridge is, that space is going to read hotter or colder than your cabin, so the thermostat will be controlling your temps based on that space and not your cabin. Let me know if you run into other questions. It was an easy install and worked for us! - Chuck

I checked and I have a 7000 BTU A/C unit. I can post some pictures of the duct locations next week when I am back to work. Home recovering from hernia surgery today.
