Holding Tank Light
« on: June 14 2017, 16:18 »
Hi Guys,

Have just bought a 2003 Bavaria 38....
How do I know when the holding tank is full?
Where do I buy curtain rail stopper ends?
Where do I buy new deck light handles?
Where do I buy push button locks for overhead lockers?

I have search the internet high and low - from Germany to Spain.....
If anyone can shed some light - I'd be eternally grateful...

1. When the brown sauce comes out of the tank vent
2. A wad of blu-tack does the job pretty well so far
3. I dunno what you mean by deck light handles?
4. I bought mine from Seascrew. Osculati makes them. Possibly SVB has them in stock too, didn't check.

Good luck! :)

Hi Yngmar,

Thanks so much for replying!  You are a mine of information!
Isn't there a warning light/alarm on the dashboard - for the holding tank?
Blu tack - good idea!
Decklight handle - I didn't express myself too well!  There is a rectangular port light/porthole above the sink in the roof.  One of the handles has come off the glass completely.  Presumably, I can't just stick it back on?  Do I have to buy a whole new unit?

Depends on your DC panel. The holding tank and "Panel 16" have no sensor or indicators. I've never seen one that actually works anyways and cleaning the sender is no fun at all.

Oh, depends on what brand your portlights/hatches are. My hatches are Gebo, and spares can be found online, although I got lucky and picked up a bag for next to nothing from a chandlery "used" shelf. They can be disassembled and replaced easily.

My portlights are Rutgerson and I figure spares are probably available from Sweden, but haven't needed any yet.
