Steven'
Just two questions

1. How hard was it to get your ice maker out
2. I need to replace the fresh water pump and the first line to the pressure side of the boat.

Any advise

Bill

there should be 4-6 screws on the face around the bezzell of the fridge....you may need to pry the covers off to get to the screws..

as for the pump....if you look at the pump...there is a latch that slides into the hose and locks it into place...look at it and you will see it...use a screw driver to pop it out...it's like a fork that goes in and clamps the hose into place...

Got one for you. Last Friday evening we ran through a heavy rain and used the wipers. On Sunday evening it rain again but this time my starboard wiper was dead. Even the light it the switch didn't come on. The port still works fine. I looked at the 20 or so push type resettable breakers below the helm and none are labeled wipers and none were tripped. I looked everywhere and have found no wiper breaker. I took the 4 screws out of the small panel and pulled the hot wire off the port switch and plugged it in to the starboard switch. The wiper worked and we cruised on home.

1. I printed out the wiring schematic and the power wire goes back to plug DC1. Were is DC1 located, where does the 12v originate?
2. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker for the wiper? If so where is it?

Thanks for any help, David

hi Slefort. since you have at least 8 posts I'll assume you've already received a hearty WELCOME!!! However I'll risk it and extend one again.

Please don't take help/advice discussions offline. The Forum is here for everyone to participate. Even old topics and threads are searched on and the archives become more rich with content as more people participate. Extending an offer for assistance and advice is fantastic and Always welcome. However, let's try to keep the dialogue online. Taking it offline goes against the communal nature of a forum.

Many thanks to all for understanding. I'm officially off of my soapbox.

Fixed it! Took the main switch panels off and traced the wire from the wiper switch all under the dash and final to the main breaker panel under the helm. Turns out that DC1 is the main breaker panel. The port wiper is connected to the circuit breaker labeled "Accessory 2" and the starboard wiper to "Accessory 3". It would have save me a couple hours if Maxum would have labeled them "Wiper". Turns out to be a faulty breaker.

It was a real pain. This might no be the correct way but it worked and I did not break anything
First take the 2 plastic parts off (the cup holded and base ) They are held on by caulk but go slow with a very thin putty knife
2 using that knife go around the inside of the ice maker frame between it and the fiberglass to break it loose. It is a really tight fit but keeping it level it will come out go to Elkton Hardware and replace the water line with one that in more flexable it is around $1.00 a foot Take one of the connecters with you to get the correct size

Note the other end of the line is connected to the main Water supply on the port side just above the fuel tank I hope you are a little thiner than I am The repair shop Hawkins & Sons 302-998-1010

I just purchased a 2000 3700SCR. It has 7.4 MPI Mercs. Would anyone know the fuel burn/speed numbers?

Charprato, welcome aboard.

Not an expert with these big boats but I would guess around 15 gph for each engine at cruising speed.

I am sure folks with this model will reply in the next few days for real life data.

Enjoy that new to you boat and congrats

Congratulations on your new boat! I own a 2000 3300SCR with 5.7's and I get 1 mile to a gallon when cruising. Hope that helps. Be sure to post some pictures of that beauty!
