    New purchase help

    I recently purchased a 1999 2855. i am looking for help with several items. Origo 2 burner cooktop is not working, Norcold 351D-F not working, also looking to replace the 2 step ladder with a 3 or 4 step ladder, would prefer to use existing mount brackets, who is the manufacturer of the ladder?

    Both the cooktop and fridge run on 120 shore power. When not on shore power the fridge runs on 12 volt DC, make sure it’s turned on inside fridge and the cooktop is lit on alcohol.

      Is the Origo alcohol/electric or just electric? If both, is it just the electric not working? The reefer should run on 120V AC or 12V DC. Is it not working on either voltage? PO of my boat had pulled the DC wire to the reefer from the fuse panel for some reason. Not that he ever used the appliances (The Origo, Norcold reefer and the Microwave still had factory packing materials in them when we purchased the boat 18 years later). I'm thinking if your AC ckt breakers are on, then perhaps someone may have disconnected wiring so those units couldn't be turned on.

      Have you measured for voltage on either appliance yet? If not, that would be the first step to rule out power/breakers and fuses and wiring.

      Can't help with the ladder as I don't know the mfg for it.

        Curious about the ladder issue as you say it is a 2 step. Does the boat have an aftermarket swim platform? Reason I ask is all the pictures I've ever seen of a 98 or 99 2855 seem to have the same telescoping ladder as my 2655 has. Perhaps it isn't telescoping out to the full multi step position? They can/do tend to get stuck. We had to pull really hard to get ours extended when we purchased due - again - to non use by PO. Just a thought. Perhaps you can post a picture of your ladder. That will help everyone understand which one you have. I expect someone will recognize it.

        BTW --- congrats on the purchase. When you get a chance fill in your signature block.

          If you can't find an exact match ladderlike the original, you may want to consider something like the following:

            The shore power was connected, all breakers on, hit the key button on the stovetop for electric use and got no results, same with the refrigerator although the controller inside the refrigerator seems to be stuck in the on position. Attached is a photo of the ladder, you said you had a 3 step on a 2655 do you have a part number and width you can share, maybe I could find the same

              Time to check if voltage is actually getting to the appliance. You may want one of these under mount type ladders so it can be stowed neatly under the swim platform.

                As Dave said, time to break out the voltage checker and track the AC and DC voltages starting at the breakers/fuses and then the appliances. Only way to find that problem.

                I don't have either a MFG or part number for the 2655 ladder. I've looked but cannot find that exact style. Best advice I can help with is the link to Amazon either I or Dave sent you in posts 5 & 7. That type is also available at other marine parts outlets. I suspect the old style we have is out of production. Let us know how the voltage tracking goes.
