CO detector/alarm End of Life

Postby portlandtug25 on Wed Mar 13, 2019 2:25 pm

Hello All:

What I thought would be a simple unplug/plug-in swap of the Xintex Co detector ( in the cave) on my R25 SC, turns out to be a bit more complicated because the old unit (CMD-4M) is no longer available. The replacement unit ( CMD-5) doesn't have the 2-prong plug the old one has and is physically larger, has different mounting plate, etc.

Before I try to connect new wires to the 12v power supply to wire in the new one I'd like to know where the fuse is for this power supply and if there is anything else on this circuit. (the simpler way would be to just disconnect the original and mount a battery-powered unit close to the original )

Has anyone done this swap? Any advice? ( dumb question I
know--there's always advice on the Tugnuts.)

Thanks

I just replaced my CMD-4 with the CMD-5 a month ago. Easy peasy, the screws mount in the same holes. You do have to crimp a new connection to the 12 volt wire with butt connectors. The fuse on our R27 is in the port cockpit locker in the auxiliary fuse block (the smaller one). Don’t know if it is the same on your R25SC. I have a laminated sheet with the fuse locations from Ranger Tugs that came with the manual. It was located per that sheet. 3 amp fuse.

Curt,

Thanks for the info. My CO detector reached EOL this past summer. I have the replacement and am going to install it soon. Now I don't have to look up the fuse location.

Good to hear from you Larry. Are you heading north this summer?

Thanks, everyone.I found my laminated diagram. It looks like there is nothing else on this circuit.
