Default Heat

When I ran the system with the valve/petcock open in the engine compartment, I had no water coming out the side of the boat. I need a mechanic to check it out I guess.. Does this look like it has a reverse cycle for heat? I hope the pictures were attached to this thread.

Nope this is an air conditioning system only, no heat.

The temp setting knob can be confusing as it says warmer but it is just for controlling the AC temp.

A system that provides heat will have settings on the top knob for heat off and AC.

Can you hear the A/C pump cycle on?

right by the petcock should be the pump. is the pump running? If you don't have water coming out the bow port then try this. water should be coming out of that port regardless of the temp setting
loosen the screws slightly until some water starts to come out. This will bleed air out of the pump housing, then tighten back up. do this while the pump is running. I have to do it to mine the first time I use it each year.
I added this unit for heat and it does a fantastic job.it pulls less power than the AC unit.

Yes, you should find the A/C pump back in the engine compartment, along with the sea-strainer and the seacock. On mine, you need to bleed the system manually. If there is no water in the pump or seastrainer, my pump will not auto-prime. I installed a Grocco flush attachment just before the seastrainer. This makes winterization easier as well.

Make sure the boat is in the water, the seacock is open and the system is primed. If it lost prime you would still hear the pump cycle on.
