At the bottom of the cabin ladder on the port side are 2 red battery on/off switches. The switches turn on both the house and engine batteries. The battery banks are isolated, i.e., it is not possible to deplete the engine or starting battery by using any electrical device. This system was designed to eliminate a depleted engine battery. Even if the house batteries are completely depleted, the engine battery remains fully charged, allowing the engine to be started. Battery power/consumption will depend on use, although it is prudent to run the engine at least 30 minutes per day to replenish and prevent complete discharge which can cause permanent damage.
Each day, check all engine fluids and seacocks. If the engine fluids need to be replenished, save the receipts and you will be reimbursed. Engine spares such as zincs, impellor, anti-freeze, engine oil and transmission fluid are located under the port quarter berth.

The propane will be turned off in all locations when either the galley stove or hot water heater are not in use. Each of these appliances have attached operating instructions and you will receive additional instructions upon boarding.
