J - 3 GRAY WATER SYSTEM
The gray water system is optional on V series models.
The water from the galley sink, head sink and shower
will drain into a sump and is pumped into a gray water
holding tank respectively. The waste level indicator is
located in the head compartment. A pumpout ﬁtting
labeled WASTE but designated for gray water is
provided on the deck. Refer to the drawings at the
end of this section.
D. Using The Shower
Turn on the faucets to desired temperature, remove
the shower spout from its holder, move the diverter
lever on the shower head, and the shower is
When using the shower, draw the shower enclosure
be fore using the shower. Dam age to the ﬁnish can
result if sur rounding walls and ﬂooring are allowed to
become exces sively wet. Thoro ughly dry these areas
Certain geographical areas have restrictions on
gray water being pumped or drained over-
board. Be sure to check all local, state and
federal laws in the boating area.
J - 4 SHORE WATER CONNECTION
The water temperature can vary during shower
use as the pressure pump cycles on and off.
For greatest consistency, turn the cold water on
full, then mix in hot water until the desired
temperature is obtained.
Shore water connection is standard on the V375
models. This feature allows the direct connection of
a city or shoreside water supply to the boat’s water
system to provide a constant supply of fresh water
without the need to constant ly reﬁll the water supply
tank. This minimizes pressure pump operation thus
extend ing the life span of the pump.
A shower sump pump is incorporated into the drain
system of the shower. The shower drains into the
sump pump located forward of the aft cabin. The
water will then be pumped overboard. If a gray water
system is installed, the water will be pumped into the
gray water holding tank.
Dockside shore water pressure can vary dramatically.
Excess pressure could damage the boat’s water
system so the shore connection also regulates the
water pres sure to a maxi mum of 35 psi.
The sump pump includes an automatic bilge switch
and is protected by a circuit breaker at the AC/DC
cabin panel. The sump pump will automatically start
as soon as the water in the sump reaches a level that
will cause the ﬂoat on the switch to rise.
The shore water inlet/regulator ﬁtting is located
outboard, on the starboard side of the transom above
the swim platform, inside the transom washdown
storage area. See Figures J3 and the drawings at the
end of this section.
After showering, let the water ﬂow for a period of time
to ﬂush the pump of soap residue. Check the sump
for excess residue. When rinsed out, the pump will
automatically shut off.
To use shore water, connect a hose from the shore
water faucet to the shore water ﬁtting on the boat and
turn on the shore water. The water system of the boat
will then be pressurized by city water if the system
was previously primed.
If water ﬂow from the shower head appears to be
restricted, it may be due to sediment accumulating at
the shower head. If necessary, remove the head and
clean the discharge holes with a ﬁne wire.
The water pump should be turned off when using city
water. If the pump is OFF, the pump will not function
and the water in the storage tank of the boat will not
Periodically check the sump pump screen for clogs
to prevent drainage problems from occurring in the
shower drain. Refer to the manufacturer’s literature
included in the owner’s packet.
