Default Head Maintenance - Drain and Pump Replacement - 2004 Maxum 2400SE

The head on the 2400SE needed some work and with the boat put away for a few months I decided I was going to replace the bad parts. When I bought the boat the head pump would not fill from the seacock and the shower drain was rotted away. I dreaded changing it out but it ended up being super easy. Once I removed the fridge I was excited not only to see the easy access but to also see access to all of the wiring and other fittings that I thought were sealed in the bulkhead.

I am actually going to leave the fridge out for a month while I run spotlight wiring and make a small berth cabinet where the AC would have gone. There is even an extra set of wires prerun for some optional accessory. I might even get rid of the fridge and figure out an ice chest on a slide in rack.

So, whether you are replacing the fridge, plumbing, drains or electrical the steps are similar:
  • 4 screws to remove the fridge (cut DC wires and unplug 110)
  • 2 hose clamps to remove the old hose and elbow
  • Clean and prep new/old parts
  • Install new strainer/drain and have a beverage

The toilet pump was also easy too:
  1. Unhook white and black hose
  2. Unscrew large outlet flange (optional: leave flange and hose assembled)
  3. Unscrew four base screws
  4. Replace unit and base gasket
  5. Connect it all back up

You can also Youtube a video of the Jabsco pump change at:


The replacement parts I used are at the links below:

Below are some pictures of the process. The first picture is the one the previous owner sent me before I bought the boat. The last picture is what it looks like after I finished the remodel

Great documentation on the projects, thanks for sharing.

I am considering pulling my frig to replace the thru hulls.

I would totally recommend it. I spent a good 15 minutes just looking at all of the wires, hoses and fittings!
