Stopped UP

Postby Our Chata » Tue Jul 07, 2015 9:32 pm

We need help in figuring out how our HEAD works. It won't flush or work at all. It happened when we let our grandkids stay on the boat and i get a call about it not flushing. LOL
Does anyone have the plumbing diagram on this boat??

There are owners' manuals for the 3375 on this Cruisers Owner Forum site which detail the plumbing of your head. That said, it's probably not the plumbing, but something simple.

First, the Master-panel and Head-breakers are on, right?!

Is it a VacuFlush head? Those things are notorious for the vacuum-switch at the top of the vacuum canister sticking. If you don't hear the vacuum pump run as soon as you turn on the Head-breaker (after you haven't been on the boat for a while), then it's likely that vacuum-switch. Simply remove the top-cap of the white vacuum tank and use your fingers to move the spring-mechanism around and see if you can get the pump to kick on. If yes, then it's probably just time for a little WD40 on the guides. That thumbwheel adjusts where the vacuum pump kicks in/out.

Good luck!
