Put one of these on since the trailer cross member prohibits a fake-a-lake. Cost of valve and fittings were ~$39 shipped.

I had to be strategic on where it went and how it's oriented since it's such a tight fit to the engine divider. I used the step "cutout" in the divider to get needed clearance.

Works great. Required 2 water supply hoses to the 5 gallon bucket to keep up with engine draw (we don't have stellar water pressure).

Engine wall divider w/step cutout.

Pulled the heater core out of the X14 last night after a lot of cussing. The heater wasn’t even plumbed in and I knew why...

No offense to Canadians, but you would think they would know how to winterize.




Also, my shower quick disconnect was installed on top of the stern, which is a butt poker and a rope grabber, so I plan to move it inside the rear glove box. Any thoughts on a filler besides gel repair? I thought of adding a nav light pole, then I can add my American Flag.

Could you do some sort of round pop up cleat? Use it for tying up or a handy place to put a rope to tie up floaty things while lounging in the water?

Maybe it was a foot warmer too, as you would have warm water all over the floor of the boat!

Dave, how about a 12v power port (cig lighter)? I have debated removing my stern light port and replacing it with a power port to fill tubes and other floatables from the platform.


Something like this, it would be a fairly flush mount:

I think you'd be hard pressed to keep water out of it if mounted where water or rain would fall on it.
