    4788 Davit Circuit Breaker

    My original (1997) circuit breaker for the davit does not appear to allow me to manually turn it off. Is there some trick?

    The circuit breakers in the swing out panel near the saloon door are notoriously hard to turn in either direction and it is better to leave them unless you really need to play with them.

    You can turn the davit power off by turning off the house batter bank - please test o ensure no power.

    You can also turn off the davit DC power with the large dedicated switch that is located on the forward face of the electrical closet stb side.

    I have seen that switch located on both the inside of the glass doors as well as the outside of the glass doors dependent upon the year of build and location of build.

    It should have a green 'on' led light next to it.

    Hope this helps

      I thought that breaker was for the windless only? Learned something new today.

        My 97 4788 has a breaker dedicated for the davit. I know this because I've replaced it. It's a 50 amp breaker that will have either a red or yellow (if it's been replaced) little arm that will come out when it's been tripped.

        "The circuit breakers in the swing out panel near the saloon door are notoriously hard to turn in either direction and it is better to leave them unless you really need to play with them." I think what Ron's talking about are the battery switches which turn. The breaker's wont trip unless they have a failure (to the best of my recollection). The three rotary switches in the door going out of the salon are House, Engine and Generator. Also, in my 97 there are no lights next to the breaker (FYI).

        Are you having a problem with the davit that you're wanting to turn it off or power it down?

          No problem with the davit, but I thought it would be good to know how to manually trip the breaker. Later breaker models appear to have a button that you push but mine doesn't seem to have any way to trip it. Maybe some day I will install a new model to allow the option, without shutting off the house bank.

          As with Michellich, the large switch on the forward side of the electrical closet is for the windless.

            Did you ever figure out how to turn the davit breaker off? I spent way too long today trying to figure this same thing out!
