Putting the Vacume tank to under bed

 End of July - Paradise Village Marina in Puerto Vallarta Mexico
Debbie put the cover back on the J Series VacuFlush Vacuum tank. The cover is a piece of 3\4 inch marine plywood we made and a piece of engine insulation glued to it.

When we tested the tank after installing the four new 2” duck bills we used this vacuum gauge. It reads 11 lbs from the get go. Do not know how that happened but oh well. So when we tested the tank it read 21 lbs so a 10-11 lb suction was in the tank. Do not know what it is supposed to be but this was held for 20 min meeting the required time period for a successful job.
Debbie under bed step are covering the J series Vacuum Tanks.
The mistake I made doing this project originally was not to sound insulate the bottom of the vacuum tank. I should have put a piece of sound insulation done then installed the vacuum tank. It is not real loud but it could be even quitter as some sounds go through the bilge.

After Debbie put on the cover she scooted the Honda 2000 generator back up in front of the cover forward. Then she put the Sailrite Ultrafeed LSZ-1 Walking Foot Sewing Machine in behind the Hond generator and then some stuff like the Garhauermarine engine lift and Magma flopper stopper. You can get a lot in this storage spot and that does not include the large storage area under the bed on the port side by the holding tank. This is all under the bed and the bed step.
So the Vacuum tank is put to bed sorta speak :)


  1. I know that opening under the bunk step was large, but I didn't think it was that large!


  2. Is it just me or is Debbie doing all the work?...lol
