1986 10m express cruiser fresh water system

Post by bpetry74 »

Howdy y’all I recently bought a 86 10m express cruiser that has had the ac/ heat unit and the entire fresh water system removed as well as part of a refit that didn’t get finished the AC I got handled retroed a dometic unit into it and redesigned the cabinet. Now I am looking to the fresh water system basically all I have left is the tank under the stairs I think I have figured out where the rest of the machinery goes in the rear port side cabinet in the rear cabin area. What I am asking for is if y’all could send me some photos of your water systems so I can get a better idea on how to proceed and the different configurations, updates, etc, etc and any constructive suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I did purchase the owners manual through this site well worth every penny then some the wiring diagram has been a life saver! But it kinda lacks on the water system
So again If I could get images of what y’all got goin on then I should be able to design something adequate enough

Thank y’all in advance

Is this a mid-cabin express or an express? 2 totally different boats. I think you may have posted on the FB page is why I ask.
