A/C Condesate sump Pump on 340 FV

arrowestarrowest Lake Cumberland (Grider Hill)Posts: 17Member ✭✭

I recently purchased a 2001 340 cruiser and just about have located everything except the Air Conditioner condesate sump pump! I am pretty sure it has one because I can sometimes hear come on!

Any ideas where this would be located? I have noticed that the drain line goes down under the main floor!

 

Thanks,

Mike

    I have a 2000 340 FV and mine is under the mid-berth.  The shower also drains to it.  Looks like the attached link.

    Follow the drain line out of the AC unit. I have a 2003 and the condensate goes right out of a thru hull fitting below the V birth which is where the AC unit is.

    The water collects in the shower sump then is sent to the hull outlet that the mid cabin bilge uses

    My shower sump pump only collects the shower water. AC drain goes straight out. I thought it drained in to the bilge. Not.

    Well......draining into the bildge makes sense but? One of the thru hull fittings outside had a rust line on it like the pan of the a/c! And, the drian hose is not draining and I tried pushing a drain auger thru it and it willl only go so far! I pulled on the hose and it will not come out of bilge area!

    Now whay do I do???????? Grrrrrr

    Only so many places to hide a condensate pump.  Do you know what thru hull it pumps out?  Start there for a blockage.  Seems logical the pump would be under the aft bunk area.

    Well....................Problem solved! Not sure if it was an original Rinker problem or second or first owner buttttttttt! The pump box where the hose leads into was never punched out for the water to run into! So it was just backing back up into the drain pain below the A/C!

    Works like a charm now!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for all the suggetions!

    Same thing needs to be done on a garbage disposal for the dishwasher hose!
