Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Warning

    I ordered a voltage regulator/rectifier P/N 01-090-1 from www.mfgsupply.com . This part was defected when i recieved it. This company will not refund or exchange this part. I recomend that you do not order from this company.

      I recommend you search for a supplier that will accept returns on electrical components.

      Let us all know when you find one.

        not the same thing, I think he is installing a universal voltage regulator for a snowmobile, as described in the charging problem sticky....

          It is difficult to find a company that will accept returns on electrical components. Most stores will say "as soon as you put power to the part you own it" thats been my experience anyway. If you search youtube there is a video of a guy who did the regulator/rectifier swap with a radioshack version.

            A lesson in reading the return policy.....

            No returns on electrical components.

            Says it right there on the website so it should not have been a surprise. No reason to slam a company for having a policy. Take it as a lesson learned.

              I know that there is a no return policy...and it's stated clearly, BUT

              It does beg the question....Does a "No Return" policy on electronics leave a consumer screwed when he/she really does have a defective part?

              I would guess that there must be some illegality to forcing a consumer to accept a defective product.
