Default Air conditioning

We have a maxium 2900 boat - 2003 to have the air conditioner running do you have to have the motor running if you are docked or can you just use shoreline power without having the motor run- and what are the steps to start the air conditioner- my husband and I are new to boating and therefore asking- thankyou

The air conditioning doesn’t require or have anything to do with the engine. It will only run using either shore power or the generator. For shore power there should be a second receptacle that is only for the air conditioner. Hook up power to this receptacle, turn on the air conditioning breaker then turn on the air conditioner from it control panel. But before all this make sure the seacock for the air conditioning is open. Once you have it running verify sea water is being pumped through the system and discharging out its thru hull else it won’t cool.

It’s typically located in the engine compartment although on some models it’s in a compartment in the cabin. I’m pretty sure yours is in the engine compartment near the forward bulkhead.
