    Circulating pump for the A/C-gctid369008

    Hi Folks

    I am trying to locate a a circulating pump for my cruisair a/c system. It is a TaylorMade model # PML 500L. It is a 115 Vac-2.0amp-60 Hz. The serial # if this helps is a M99 0177 and the GPM is 490 for 3 feet.

    I have found a PML 500 which is under the Dometic brand name at Greatlake Skipper for $349.00. I believe the amp rating is 2.5 but everything else looked the same. I even found the dometic PDF and there is no PML 500L anymore just PML 500

    This is for a 2001 Maxum 3000SCR. Is there a dealer that might have this?

    Any help will be much appreciated

    Roger

        Are you looking to replace it? If so the March AC 5 is a good replacement unit.

          Thanks everybody.......I order a unit from Greatlakes Skipper that is the same thing. Pricey things they are$$$

          I did see the March brand when I googled this but just didn't know where to go on that on, but thanks!

          Took it out of the boat and tested it at home with a bucket of water. It don't work! I have never had to prime the pump since we have had the boat. Water has always come out, so when I turned on the unit today it didn't.

          Again Thanks!

            ok...here's what I wrote on the maxum site...

            "I'd probably call up a local bayliner store..it's a common pump..try greatlakesskipper or fisheriessupply.com...but sometimes you just need to prime the pump....pour water or stick a hose in the exhaust end of the pump...where it feeds out of the side of the boat......let it run for a few seconds and then pull the hose and start the system up..should pump the water thru the system then...

            or contact the ARRRR company..."

                You just need a pump that meets your specs of 490 GPM and 3' of head.... So if you find something that is 500 or more GPM and at a good price buy it.......

                  Is there a difference between a pump made for an AC and a normal utility pump if the GPH are the same. I was thinking of a selfpriming type pump for a Cruiseair I picked up.

                    Thanks SP good to know. I have heard of priming the pump but was never sure how to accomplish it.

                        Hello Mrbigsea,

                        "Took it out of the boat and tested it at home with a bucket of water"

                        When you tested it did it sound like it was spinning but just not pumping? Or did it do nothing at all and no 'jump' when you powered it up?

                        These questions are because many of these pumps have magnetically coupled impellers which can be 'jammed' easily by small pieces of debri during winterizing ar at other times. In many cases if you pull a number of screws and split the case to get unimpeeded rotation of the impeller it will then run fine. I cannot tell from the picture if this applies to your pump.

                        Hope this helps
