  1. Could be a fuse, or another circuit breaker. What model/year boat are you referring to, and where is the 12V plug you are referring to?
  2. It sounds as though a previous owner had some work done either at the L2 receptacle, main breaker, or at the breaker to panel connection. The hot and neutral could have been reversed at one of those points while replacing a bad component. Have an electrician check those areas.
  3. Have an issue that requires the port engine be removed. Has any 282 owner had to pull an engine? And if so, how was that accomplished? The folks at the marina are saying they have to remove the entire top deck or cut out a portion of the rear deck which covers the engine access. Thoughts/Knowledge of the process? TIA
  4. Local marina needs to know how to get to the rear of the engine to remove it. Telling me it can't be done without taking the deck off! There has to be a better way! Anyone do this or have it done, and what is the process? TIA. Dave.
  5. I can't speak to your 322 as I have a 282 with the Volvo Penta. Can you send pics of the current setup? Our Bayliner had a 5.7L Mercruiser and it had the extensions. But the was to ensure the riser to Y-Pipe fit was correct. There are other reasons for getting water up past the flappers, but let's see some pics first.
  6. Do you have a DC circuit breaker panel similar to the one pictured in your engine room/bilge area? If so, chk the breakers on the left (port) side for the items mentioned. Also note in the picture that the "main" is in a tripped condition. This happens if you push that red button in. To reset, push that little bar angling down from the top left up into the recess. Hope this helps.
  7. Here's a couple pics of what yours looks like below.
  8. We just purchased a 282 which has a very similar looking stern and a hatch in that same location. Couldn't open it prior to purchase because a previous owner had attached the fender holder in the area over it. When the detailers removed the fender holder, I was surprised to find the the storage below there is only about 1" deep! Makes no sense. I suppose one could coil a couple of dock lines in it, but other than that it seemed useless. I reattached the fender holder over it and it is now inaccessible once again.
  9. Considering purchase of a 2004 282 Express. Appears to be twin VP 270hp engines. Not sure of the model as it isn't listed. Wondering how accessible the spark plugs are on the outboard sides of each of the engines? Also wondering if there are any other maintenance headaches on Volvo Pentas. I've worked on several Mercruiser models over the years, but not VP's. Thanks in advance for any thoughts and feedback.
