The water enters the engine through the engine water jacket and is returned to the sea through the exhaust system. A feature which is standard on diesel engines is the freshwater cooling system. This system uses the incoming seawater to cool a secondary closed-cooling system. The seawater flows through an engine mounted heat exchanger, cools the closed system coolant and is returned to the sea via the exhaust system. Engine Ignition Start/Stop Successfully entering the correct keyless code then pressing the ENTER button will unlock the system. At this point the PORT ENGINE IGN and STBD ENGINE IGN buttons are enabled. When the system is unlocked, a 15-minute timer begins. If the system senses that either or both engines are running or rotating during the 15-minute period, the timer is reset and turned OFF. If neither engine starts during the 15-minute period, the system will lock. It will then be necessary to re-enter the user code to unlock the system and enable starting the engines. m u r o F s er .com n w um O ALARM SYSTEMS rs ForWith the system unlocked, pressing either e s s ENGINE START button will toggle the correi The alarm Alarm systems are on all boats. r u e r will sound under the following n C conditions: sponding master engine ignition circuit ON, w m O o and the corresponding indicator will light. s r Engine temperature exceeds specified r f e The 15-minute counter is reset each time COOLING SYSTEM s limits.d i e u one of the six buttons which control the d r Engine oil pressure drops below specified a C . engine ignition is pressed.

The absence of cooling water will cause the engines to overheat and cause irreparable damage. 4-2 To test the alarm system, turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position. Depending upon the engine, the alarm may sound immediately or after a few seconds delay. If an ENGINE START indicator is ON, the corresponding ENGINE START button is enabled. The ENGINE START indicator will light when the engine tachometer signal is sensed, indicating engine rotation. It is 455 Series important to note that the indicator does not indicate when the engine is successfully started but simply that the crank shaft is rotating. The indicator will remain ON as long as the system is receiving the signal from the engine tachometer. At this point the 15-minute timer and further actuation of the engine ignition button is disabled. The 15minute timer is disabled as long as one or both engines are running. If both engines are not running and none of the ENGINE START/IGN buttons are pressed, the timer is restarted and the system will lock when the 15-minute time elapses. Reprogramming the User Code The following is a description of how to program/reprogram the four-digit user code. 1. Type in your four-digit code. Caution: Do not press ENTER 2. Simultaneously press 1 and 4. If the code was entered correctly the LED, adjacent to 1, will blink approximately twice a second, otherwise the LED will remain off. 3. Type in the new four-digit code, once to enter the code then once to verify, without pressing the ENTER button in between. Ex. If the desired code is 1, 2, 3, 4 then the user will type in 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4. If done correctly upon pressing the final verification digit the system will unlock and the unlock LED will remain illuminated. Caution: Each key press must be within three seconds of each other or the keypad will reset. All the operation, specification and maintenance information is contained in the engine owner’s manual.

FUEL SYSTEM (Crossover Valve) Your boat is equipped with an internal fuel system meeting current federal requirements. The best materials and components available are used to assemble the fuel system. The manual valves can control the fuel supply to the engines in five ways: 1. Both handles pointing aft shuts the flow of fuel OFF. 2. When both handles point forward each engine can receive fuel from its respective tank; the port engine receives fuel from the port fuel tank and the starboard engine receives fuel from the starboard tank. m u r o F s er .com n w um 3.

Your boat is designed with counterrotating inboards for minimum torque effects. Third, ensure that the installation provides adequate safety features such as a straight key, a propeller nut, a jam nut and a cotter pin. Refer to Section 8 for installation instructions. 455 Series Model 455 boats have two aluminum, 250 gallon tanks located in the engine compartment. The tank outlets to the engines have a manual valve for fuel shut-off in the event of a line break. To access the manual valves or tank fittings open the fuel access hatch. The valves are on the top of the fuel tank. These valves are attached to the fuel tank outlet and return lines. The valves are closed when the handle is perpendicular to the fuel line and open when the handle is inline with the fuel line. around of the boat. Near the fill cap is a vent which allows air to move in and out of the tank as the fuel level changes. The fill for the starboard tank is on the starboard walkaround and the port fill is on the port walkaround. and explosion hazard. Inspect the entire fuel system regularly. All fuel system components must be checked before each boating season and regularly during the season for any leaks or bad hose conditions. Make sure the fuel system is leak-free. 4-5 455 Series STEERING SYSTEM Rudder Your boat is equipped with hydraulic steering. The rotation of the steering wheel results in an unbalanced hydraulic (oil) pressure in the two lines going from the helm to the rudder cylinder. The pressure differential is converted to linear motion by the hydraulic steering cylinder which is mechanically linked to the rudder tiller arms. Both rudder tiller arms are rigidly connected together by a tie bar so that both rudders respond equally to the helm. The twin rudders are offset from the shaft centerline to allow shaft removal without having to remove the rudders. Each rudder is also canted inboard slightly to allow for a constant pressure of water to act upon the rudder face. The pressure on the rudder face prevents “flutter” in a 0° rudder position.

The AC system supplies power to the 120/240 volt systems when the boat is moored at the dock or slip, or when the generator is running. 455 Series are charged by the alternators. There is a battery charger for the house and cranking batteries and an optional battery charger for the optional bow thruster battery. The battery chargers are powered by either the dockside or generator 120VAC power. The generator battery is charged by the generator. 4-7 455 Series A bonding wire is extended through a #6 green wire from the bonding strip to a terminal behind the instrument panel. This will facilitate electronics installation. In addition, the handrails are attached to the bonding system. The house batteries are isolated from the cranking batteries by a battery isolator. When the engines and ignition switches are “OFF” the isolator prevents house battery loads from discharging the cranking batteries. When the batteries are being charged by the alternators, the isolator automatically isolates the batteries and will distribute the charge among the batteries according to individual need. The meter is a convenience feature which allows you to check on the condition of the three batteries. With master breaker switch in “OFF” position, turn battery test switch to: G G “Stbd” to check the starboard engine cranking battery. “Port” to check the port engine cranking battery. “Generator” to check the generator cranking battery. “House” to check the house batteries. “OFF” to disable meter and test circuit. The switch type circuit breakers’ function allows you to manually enable or interrupt a circuit by moving the switch on or off.

For boat owners, galvanic corrosion is a common occurrence. Using a shore power AC electrical system on the boat includes an earth ground circuit that “grounds" all onboard metal parts to the earth on shore. This circuit provides the protection against hazardous shocks but unfortunately it can also create stray DC currents which cause the decomposition of all submerged metal. less “noble” metal it will decompose before the more “noble” metals. Your dealer may install additional zinc anodes to areas such as the rudders. Check these zincs periodically, and have them replaced as needed. See your dealer for parts and service. FRESHWATER SYSTEM Freshwater Tank The boat is fitted with both an 85 gallon and 50 gallon freshwater tank. They are filled through a fill plate located on the port stern. The tanks are vented through the hull. This allows air to enter/escape as water levels rise and fall. m u r o F s er .coFillmthe tankIMPORTANT n only with potable water. w um Using and refilling O the tank often will s r r o help keep it a source of clean drinke F s s i r ing water. e ruBonding n C A Word About w SOLUTIONS TO GALVANIC m usessO FILTER AND PUMP o Cruisers Yachts a copper bonding strip r CORROSION r f e Water is drawn from the tanks by a selfindthe engineicompartment.

Sacrificial zinc anodes, installed at the factory, protect the hardware that is exposed to the water. Galvanic corrosion attacks the least “noble” metals first. Because zinc is a 455 Series A Galvanic Isolator is installed in the green bonding wire between the yacht and the dockside ground to prevent the flow of relatively low electrolytic stray currents. It will, however, provide a path for catastrophic, short-circuit currents which are sufficient to actuate circuit breakers. INITIAL STARTUP Bonding provides a common ground for all electrical systems on the boat. 1. Fill the freshwater tank with approximately 50 gallons of potable water. 2. Turn the FRESHWATER PUMP breaker on. 4-51 455 Series 3. Open the cold water galley faucet to allow air to escape. Close the faucet when a steady flow of water is apparent. 4. Open the hot water galley faucet to fill the water heater and allow air to escape from the line. Close the faucet when a steady flow of water is apparent. 5. Bleed air from the remainder of the faucets in the same manner as steps 3 and 4. After all lines have been bled, the pump will build to operating pressure and then shut off. As an alternative to your freshwater tank, the freshwater system can be connected to “city water” at the receptacle on the starboard stern. Because the water enters the boat under pressure, it bypasses the tank, the filter and the pump. NOTE Using “city water” hookup does not replenish water supply in the tank. The tank can only be filled at the freshwater fill plate. ! CAUTION Do not turn the hot water switch on unless the freshwater system is charged.

Waste is pumped from the head through a sanitary waste hose to the top portion of the tanks. A 1-1/2" sanitary waste hose is attached to the bottom of each tank and runs to the fore and aft dockside pumpout plate on the starboard side of the deck walkaround. An overboard vent keeps the tank at atmospheric pressure regardless of waste levels. A waste tank indicator is also installed to provide a visual indication of the amount of waste in the tank. The indicator is located at the AC/DC panel. pump. The marina will handle the proper disposal of the waste. OVERBOARD DISCHARGE A valve is installed between the marine toilet and the waste holding tank. The valve can direct the flow of waste to the holding tank, or to an outlet seacock for overboard discharge of waste.

If it is necessary to do detailed electrical troubleshooting, contact Cruisers Customer Service at 1-800743-3478 and request the necessary documentation, which could include schematics and harness drawings. DC SYSTEM DC CIRCUIT BREAKERS The DC system nominal voltage is +12 VDC. DC common is connected to the engine/battery ground buss. The primary problem involved in most troubleshooting involves loss of power to the individual system. This can be caused because a circuit breaker is tripped. These circuit breakers can be identified and located in Section 4. If a circuit breaker is tripped it can be reset. If the circuit breaker trips immediately after being reset it is an indication that the circuit is overloaded. In this case it is necessary to determine the cause of the fault and to remove the cause of the fault before resetting the circuit breaker again. This determination should be done by a qualified service technician. There are three DC circuit breaker panels in addition to the circuit breakers on the AC/DC panel. One is located at the dash, in front of the keypad. One is located adjacent to the AC/DC panel. The third panel is located in the engine room, on the forward bulkhead. The circuit breakers on the panel are: m u r o F s The DC system wires are identified by three erAC/DC.PANEL: om c n colors. Red wires are +12 volts, yellow wires w PME-2 m are DC common and gray wires are DC conO u s r trol wires. Bonding wires are green. AC syser rsFo ENGINE ROOM PANEL: s i tem wires utilize three colors. White wires are ru ne AC neutral, black wires are AC hot wires in BLOWER MAIN, BLOWERS 1, 2 AND 3, C w 120 VAC systems and red wires are the m AUTO BILGE PUMPS FWD, MID & AFT O o s r ungrounded wires in 240 VAC power sysAND PME-1 f iser d tems. e u d r a C . Individual harness wires are identified with lo w n wire number and function by lettering which w w o //w is printed by an ink jet printer every three D inches on the wires. This information aids in p: tt identifying wire functions for troubleshooting. h Battery cables are identified by labels on WIRING STANDARDS DASH PANEL: SPOT LIGHT, TRIM TABS, 12V RECEPTACLE AND GRAYHILL PANEL both ends of each cable. 10-6 455 Series KEYPAD FUNCTIONS AC ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS The functions controlled from the keypad at the dash panel receive their power via the PME enclosures which are part of the Grayhill system. The functions which are controlled at the keypad are protected by circuit breakers which are part of the PME boxes. Each PME has the circuit breakers and its functions identified by labels on the PME box. If a function controlled from the keypad is not working properly, check the circuit breaker for that function on its corresponding PME. Refer to the DC schematic pages in the manual to identify the corresponding PME for the function in question. PME #1 is located in the engine room and PME #2 is located below the AC/DC panel. The standard AC power system is 120/240VAC, 60 hertz. This allows the system to have two lines, L1 and L2, at 120VAC and also 240VAC. The AC power is controlled at the AC/DC panel. The boat owner should restrict control of AC power to the circuit breakers and switches on the AC/DC panel. Circuit breakers are clearly identified and can be switched on and off. If a circuit breaker is tripped, it can be reset. If it trips again immediately it indicates an overload in the circuit. The source of the overload must be determined and corrected before the circuit breaker is reset for normal operation. Contact the Customer Service Department at Cruisers if electrical documentation is needed.
