Serial or advice by Force 10 Marine Company or any of its employees is given with the understanding that it is solely as an accommodation to the
customer and should not be relied upon by the customer without an independent verification of its applicability to the customers particular SAFETY
using electrical appliances basic safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire electric shock or injury to persons should be followed including
Read all Instructions before Operating This water heater must be grounded Connect only to properly grounded circuit Install or locate this water
heater only in accordance with the provided installation instructions Use this water heater only for its intended use as described in this manual Do
not use an extension cord set with this water heater
Page 1 of 10
Do not operate this water heater if it has a damaged power line if it is not working properly or if it has been damaged or dropped This water heater
should be serviced only by qualified service personnel Contact nearest authorized service facility for examination repair or This is an electrical
appliance that requires a specific energy source Each unit is manufactured to run on either 120 OR 240 volt circuitry Be sure you have purchased the
correct unit based on your power source This heater is equipped with a heat exchanger so that the water may be heated by the coolant from your engine
This may cause the water temperature to get excessively hot unless your unit is equipped with a Temperature Control Valve which holds the temperature
at approximately 140 deg F Do not operate this water heater if there is damage to the heater or if not performing properly Contact Force 10 for
assistance The tank and heat exchanger are aluminum Do not use any chemicals in the heat exchanger that may cause damage to it Use only the engine
recommended coolant Do not use raw water in heat exchanger circuit Damage caused by a damaging chemical or salt reaction is not covered under gas is
produced in a hot water system served by this heater that has not been used for a long period of time 2 weeks or more Hydrogen gas is extremely
flammable To reduce the risk of injury under these conditions it is recommended that the hot water faucet be opened for several minutes at the kitchen
sink before using any electrical appliance connected to the hot water system When hydrogen is present there will probably be an unusual sound such as
air escaping through the pipe as the water begins to flow There should be no smoking or open flame near the faucet at the time it is open NOTE Small
DC electric currents move between boat and shore through the safety ground wire in the shore cord causing galvanic damage to your water heater To
prevent galvanic damage this product should be used in conjunction with a galvanic isolator These devices are inexpensive and easily installed
Galvanic corrosion is not covered by 2 of 10 To reduce the risk of excessive pressures and temperatures in this water heater install temperature and
pressure protective equipment required by local codes and no less than a combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified by a nationally
recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials as meeting the requirements for Relief
Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems ANSI Z21221986 This valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not to
exceed the marked maximum working pressure of the water heater Install the valve into an opening provided and marked for this purpose in the water
heater and orient it or provide tubing so that any discharge from the valve exits only within 6 inches above or at any distance below the structural
floor and does not contact any live electrical part The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any For your convenience this
device has already been installed on you unit MOUNTING 1 If you are using the heat exchange feature locate the water heater as close to the engine as
possible The heat exchanger port or TCV inlet if equipped must be lower that the coolant output port of the engine 2 Your unit is equipped with
mounting brackets located either on the sides of the tank or the front and back of the tank Use stainless steel screws to securely fasten the heater
PLUMBING 1 Connect cold water supply and hot water outlet to the heater as indicated on the front of the tank The tank is supplied with 12 NPT Female
fitting Force 10 recommends the installation of a check valve on the cold water inlet Seal all pipe fittings with Teflon tape or Loctite thread
sealant Thermal Expansion When a Water Heater is installed in a closed watersupply system such as one having a back flow preventer in the cold water
supply means shall be provided to control thermal expansion 2 The heat exchanger inlet or TVC inlet if equipped and the outlet is a 58 hose barb
fitting Connect hoses to the hose barb fitting using stainless steel hose clamps 3 If your unit is equipped with a TCV Temperature Compensation Valve
the coolant loop to the water heater exchanger must be an auxiliary loop in the engine coolant circulation system The TCV can not be installed inline
with the engine coolant system Figure 1 on page 5

temperature of the engine coolant If the Heater is equipped with a Temperature Control Valve TCV the water temperature in the tank will be regulated
at approximately 140 deg F 60 deg C The Temperature Control Valve TCV regulates the flow of coolant through the Heat Exchanger by sensing the output
temperature of the water in the tank As the output water temperature rises the thermal actuator closes the valve and restricts the coolant flow
through the Heat Exchanger limiting the water temperature to approximately 140 deg F 60 deg F When the output water temperature cools the valve opens
and allows engine coolant to flow through the heat 7 of 10 1 Completely fill the tank and entire water system Flush water through the tank to
