New to the forum. Hi.

Hi there. I am the new guy today. I have been looking around the different areas of the site and found that you people are very helpful and welcoming. Just purchased a Trojan 36 Tri-cabin. It needs quite a bit of work, but looking forward to bringing it up to standards and beauty. It’s also my first boat other than a few small fishing boats many many years ago. Just a bit of an upgrade.
I installed 3 new batteries today and found that there was no power. Traced the wires back to the DC control panel and the ARPAX 40 amp and 60 amp breakers were missing on the left side. Would anyone know where I could get these?
Looking forward to being a contributing member of the forum.
Respectfully,

Welcome. I can't help you with the fuses except to tell you to contact Beacon Marine. They handle a lot of Trojan parts. We love to see pictures of your boat if you have some...

Coincidentally I had ordered an owners manual from Beacon earlier today, so should be off to a good start.
Will post a few pics this weekend.

Welcome to the forum.

What year is your tricabin?

I had a '74 for sixteen years. Great hulls. Loved it.

Welcome.

You can get factory manuals from Beacon. Highly recommended. Also recommended is nigel calder's "boatowners mechanical and electrical handbook"
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

Welcome fellow f36 owner, have pretty much been through most all systems on mine, including new toilets and plumbing.

Hi Larry, just starting to get into mine. It’s dated for sure and I suspect I will be doing several upgrades as well as time goes by. If I get around to it:)
