    hi I recently bought a 2009 hurricane 260 and the frig did work but now no cooling at all . Can anyone tell me where to start troubleshooting and do they make wiring diagrams for my boat.
    Thanks Rodster

    Check the mfg.'s web site (or just call them). They should be able to provide it. You can quickly determine who is at fault (boat or fridge) with a voltmeter at the connections.
    If its the fridge; Look under the panel or around the chasis of the unit. They will often put a wiring diagram and even a basic troublshooting pamphlet in there somewhere.
    Best of luck. Electrics problems are the worst.

    If it runs, it's probably low on refrigerant. The seals get hard when not used enough.
