Re: Windlass breaker location in R40

Because you have the bowl thruster and the windlass is powered by its battery, I have few suggestions of location: 1) Under the bed close to the bowl thruster battery, 2) Port side where the relay is located ( the manual points to the location of the relay ) Given the high amperage, it is very unlik...

R40 Capitain's cup holder

The new solution (yours) seems much better as I can barely see the second screen when seated. I need help figuring out how to bring a wire from the helm station to the room under the seating...

R40 Storage solution for oil, filters and tools

The R40 design is optimized in such away that it is difficult to find locations to store dirty stuff. For example, while I want to carry oil for engine and transmission, hydrogen peroxide, etc, I do not want them inside one of my cabins.

Re: R40 Stern Windlass

Nice addition, the only item you should consider adding is a safety wire. It is an extra safety to be used while on the way, see http://bavariaownersforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=794

Re: refrigerator

Refrigerator My guess is that your refrigerator is connected to 12 Volts and you are turning your batteries off when docked. I have a R40 boat that the refrigerator is connected only to 12 Volts. The refrigerator on my boat is dual voltage, but Bavaria only connected the 12 Volts. Hence, if this ass...
