support of our products Our practical experience and design capability allows our and sales to offer for your environmental control lines also include well known Cruisair Grunertand SentryHow It WorksYour selfcontained air conditioner consists of four maincomponents and a refrigerant gas circulating through thesystem The BLOWER draws warm cabin air across thefins on the EVAPORATOR where the heat from the air istransferred to the refrigerant in the evaporator coil Asthe refrigerant evaporates from a liquid into a gas itabsorbs the heat from the cabin air The COMPRESSORthen compresses the refrigerant gas and pumps itthrough the outer tube in the CONDENSER COIL Theseawater pump circulates cool seawater through theinner tube in the condenser coil this cools the refrigerant and condenses it into a liquid The heat from therefrigerant is exchanged to the seawater and The liquid refrigerant is then passed throughthe EVAPORATOR COIL and the cycle repeats Removing heat from the cabin air lowers its temperature Thecooled air is blown through the ducting and out thesupply air grilles For reverse cycle heating the refrigerant flows in the opposite direction through the reversingvalve Heat is transferred from the seawater in thecondenser coil to the refrigerant and then to the airblowing through the evaporator into the cabin will directly affect the ac units efficiencyThis ac unit can effectively cool your boat in up to 90F and heat in water temperaturesas low as 40F See Figure 1Unpacking and InspectionWhen the equipment is received all items should becarefully checked against the packing list to ensure allcartons have been received Move units in the normalup orientation as indicated by the arrows on eachcarton Examine cartons for shipping damage removingthe units from the cartons if necessary If the unit isdamaged the carrier should make the proper notation onthe delivery receipt acknowledging the damageCAUTION When unpacking and installing the 3knobcontrol if mechanical option is usedust betaken not to kink or break the copper cap tube whenuncoiling the sensing bulb The cap tube is hollow andkinking or sharp bends will inhibit system IMPORTANT Never

electrical shock andpersonal injury this component must be Refer to the installation guidelines forfurther compressor temperature is normalDo not touchSelecting a good location for your air conditioner is themost important part of your preparations Be sure toconsider the size of the area you are cooling the needs and the size of the unit you havechosen Keeping in mind that cool air has a tendency tofall it is highly recommended that you locate the supplyair grille as high as possible in the cabin See Figures 2The Vector Compact unit should be installed as low aspossible BUT NEVER IN THE BILGE OR ENGINEROOM AREAS INSURE THAT THE SELECTED LOCATION IS SEALED FROM DIRECT ACCESS TO BILGEANDOR ENGINE ROOM VAPORS Installing the unit aslow as possible such as under a Vberth dinette seat orbottom of a lockerpossible creates an ideal airflow condition This type ofinstallation will prevent short or premature cyclingThe unit should be positioned on a firm level and the condensate drain line should rundownward from the unit to a suitable drain location Planall connections which must be made including drain seawater in and out electrical location of control and seawater pumpplacement

The condensate drain pan is 2 high with up to four drainlocations During conditions of high humidity condensatemay be produced at a rate of approximately 12 gallonper hour With this in mind it is important to drains downward to a sump pump It is notrecommended to route condensate drains to the bilgeAfter the condensate drain installation is complete testthe installation by pouring a quart of water into the panand checking for good flow See Figure 4For installation of the condensate drain1Remove the aft facing watertight plug from the base2Slip the solid washer and the liquidseal washer ontothe PVC fitting in that order3Connect the fitting through the exposed hole in thebase pan with the locking nut4Securely tighten with two 2vide a5Attach a 58 ID reinforced hose to the hose barb andsecure with stainless steel hose clamps6Install the condensate drain hose downhill from theunit and aft to a sump7Two drain fittings may be used and the hoses teedtogether provided there is a minimum 2 drop form theNote The reason to use the aft facing drain location isso that water will tend to drain out of the pan when thevessel is under way However the boat owner shouldinspect the pan when the vessel is at rest If water isfacing then the drain on that edge should also beutilized This will help to prevent water from standing inthe pan See item 7 for instructions on connecting twodrain linesIMPORTANT Do not terminate condensate drain linewithin three 3eet of any outlet of engine or systems nor in a compartment housing anengine or generator nor in a bilge unless the drain isconnected properly to a sealed condensate or showersump pumpBlower AssemblyWith the Vector Compact you can achieve supply air discharge from a single unit by rotatingthe blower to the desired location It is ideal for as 130 of rotation are available with whichto position the blower Its advanced design allows theblower to be easily removed for rotating or servicing byremoving the two mounting ring screws and the the blower to the drain pan Rotate the blowerto allow the most direct flow of air to the supply air the mounting screws Plug any unused screwholes in the blower to prevent air lossMounting BracketsThe ac unit is supplied with a base pan that also servesas a condensate pan Mounting clip brackets are provided to secure the base pan onto a flat See Figure 5Supply Return Air Grillesand Transition BoxesInstall the supply air grille as high as possible in alocation that will provide uniform air distribution throughout the cabin grille louvers should be directed upwardThe return air grille should be installed as low and closeto the ac unit as possible to insure direct to the evaporator The return air grille should havea minimum four inches 4ance in front of itfree from any furniture or other obstructions In notowards a return air grille as this will cause the systemto short cycle Allow for adequate clearance behind thesupply air grillesor the transition box and The table in Figure 8 shows minimum grillesizes See the MAINTENANCE section of this manual forreturn air filter cleaning airflow is critical for the performance of theentire system It is highly dependent on the quality ofthe ducting installation The ducting should be run asstraight smooth and taut as possible minimizing thenumber of 90 bends two tight 90 bends can reduceairflow by 25 The table in Figure 8 shows minimumreturn air grille minimum area in square inches If atransition box is used the total area of supply air ductsgoing out of the box should at least equal the area
