Fill the system with fresh water.
To obtain the most consistent mix ture of hot and cold
water, turn the cold water on full, then mix in hot water
until the desired temperature is obtained. If water
pump cycling occurs, some minor variations in water
tempera ture can be expect ed.
To remove excessive chlorine taste or odor which
might remain in the system, prepare a solution of one
quart vinegar to ﬁve gallons water and allow this
solution to agitate in the tank for several days during
boating. Then drain tank and reﬁll with fresh water.
Whenever the boat will be left unattended for an
extended period, the water pump circuit breaker
switch should be turned to the OFF position. This
switch should also be turned OFF whenever the
water tank is to remain empty for an extend ed period
All drains are equipped with traps, and the water will
drain slowly. If the system is not operating properly,
have it checked by your authorized Four Winns
C. Water Heating Systems
J - 2 PRESSURIZED WATER SYSTEM
A water heater is a standard feature available on the
V375 models. The capacity of the water heater may
be found on our website at www.fourwinns.com. Refer
to Figure J2 and to the drawings at the end of this
The water pump is an automatic, on-off, self-priming
pump that can service several outlets at once. The
pump will build up water pressure and will turn off
when it reaches 65 psi. Refer to Figure J1 and the
drawings at the end of this section.
Water heater location may vary due to the
installation of optional equipment.
A. Priming the System
After ﬁlling the water tank, open all faucets partial ly.
Activate the FRESH WATER circuit breaker switch
on the cabin AC/DC panel to supply the system with
water. Let the pump run until water comes out of the
galley faucet, head faucet and transom shower.
The water heater utilizes 120 volt (220 volt on 50
Hertz models) power. The water heater breaker switch
is located on the cabin 120 Volt AC panel.
After all the air has been purged from the system and
a steady ﬂow of water is coming from each outlet, turn
off the faucets one by one. Begin with the cold water
faucets and continue until all faucets are shut off. As
the pressure builds, the pump will automatically shut
off at 65 psi. Refer to Section H-5 - 12 Volt Electrical
Equipment and the manufacturer’s literature included
in the owner’s packet for additional information.
DO NOT supply 120 volt power to an empty
water heater. Damage to the heater will result
immediately. The water system must be ﬁlled
and primed before attempting to use the water
B. System Operation
When properly primed and activated, the pressurized
water system can be used in the same manner as
the water system in a home. An automatic pressure
sensor in the water pump keeps the system pressur-
ized. Simply turn on the faucet and water will be
deliv ered. If the system has been recently ﬁlled, or
has not been used for an extend ed period of time,
air bubbles may accumulate at the pump and/or in
the waterlines. If this should happen, re-priming may
be necessary. Refer to the preceding subsection
regarding priming the system.
Figure J2: Water Heater Location
On the V375 models the water heater incorporates a
heat exchanger. The heat ex changer allows the
engine coolant to heat a portion of the fresh water
supply while the engines are operating. This option
will provide hot water at times when 120 volt power is
