    What is this?-gctid817791

    I was cleaning out the storage area on the port side of the bow on my 490 and saw this:

    Any idea what it is for?

      Yup - vented loop (incomplete?)

      Looks like its missing the check valve at the top.

      You likely have one of those with the check valve in your port side stern locker for the genset.

      This one could be for the washer dryer drain line as the heads are on the other side of the boat.

      I am not familiar with an area like that in the bow - are you in the fwd side stateroom below the berths?

      Add --btw , is that picture turned 90 degrees from up?

        Smitty, the picture is oriented correctly, unlike my profile pic. It is inside the small storage locker just right of the bottom of the ladder on the stern. Not sure how I got bow and stern confused!..

          Genset vacuum break for the raw water cooling entering the system - follow the hoses back to the heat x-changer and the exhaust hose area.

          Cannot tell real well from the pic but it looks incomplete.

            Smitty, that does not look like its missing anything. It looks like a Forespar Marelon brand vented loop.

              It is not a marine sanitation loop is it?

                  Port side? I am thinking washer/dryer. Where exactly I haven't seen it

                    It is complete, if you unscrew the top cover you will find a replaceable duck bill valve.

                      Thanks Gary I did not know that type.

                      A loop for the heads is typically near the toilet(s) under the cabinets in the head(s).

                      The same loop is utilized for the genset breaker - is there one on the other side of the stern in the port as well?

                        It's the vented loop for the gen. set, I have the same set up on my 2005 Meridian 490
