Have you checked with Bob Cushman from Beacon Marine? His phone is 609-713-4602 and he is a great help to the Trojan community!

I'm knew to the forum and not sure if it is right to jump in here with a couple of questions from another new owner (also a 1977 Tri Cabin with 400s). Have worked my way thru most of the sytems and discovered how they work. Mystified by water system. Two key questions:
1. Is the water inlet the one on the transom insode the boarding ladder?
2. I was tole there is an outside hose connect for shower/wash. Can anyone tell we location and how to turn it on.
Thank you all. Great form. And I love this boat. :D

Hi,
I have the same model boat, I think.
The connection on the transom might be the outside shower connection. My boat has a water inlet thru-hull in the middle of the aft bedroom near the back, and a pump to feed an outside shower.
I do not have a pressurized water inlet. I have to fill the tanks, and use the built in pump and pressure tank.
