I'm installing a Mercury Gateway on a Simrad NSS EVO3 nmea 2000 network with twin 300 Verados and would like to know if I need to add the fuel data management storage to the nmea network to get any additional info? Thanks

Hey all, I just recently re-powered my 2016 Robalo Cayman 226 with a 2019 250 Verado. Motor is unreal but I just had this issue start with shifting gears. It seams that the margin of shift between neutral and reverse as super small. The margin between forward and neutral is fine and seems right. Never had this issue with my other motor. When I got this new motor put on reverse always seemed really close or a tight margin to neutral. Being DTS, is there an adjustment for this or does the mechanic sync it all when the motor is put on?

Hello All.
My scarab last year took a lightning strike and toasted almost everything while on the lift. I then removed both big block inboards installed a new transom along with a bracket. I now have twin 300 verados on it. Loving it so far but trying to get the last few bugs worked out.

So I am getting the coolant sensor error. Issue is I ohms checked both and it checks fine. I also it reads normal on my vessel view Mobil. I can even unplug it and it will go to the default 32 degrees. Plug it back in and it goes right back to where it should be. I then swapped the sensors just to be sure. No change. Stb engine still has the coolant sensor fault. Any ideas on what to check next?  The error pops up before the engine is even running. Just turn the key and it pops up.

Getting an alarm at 4500 RPM thinking its because of this sensor. No other errors. If I had an electrical schematic I could trouble shoot the issue pretty easy I'm sure without just throwing parts at it.

It had a shift fault on the other engine. That was an easy fix. Shift neutral switch was stuck and broken. Replaced all good.

Right engine had oil leak at prop shaft took it all apart and discovered a hairline crack in the carrier. Got new bearings and seals and carrier arriving today.

Thanks all for the help.

My manual shows resistance between pins A/B and B/C should be 23 ohms also. 

Will the motor run with the new sensor?  Does the motor show alarms with the new sensor??

I would try running the motor then get another sensor if the new one doesn't work either.

If you have access to a CDS the sensor will show 5 volts except when #1 or #6 pistons are at TDC when the value will be 0 volts.

If the camshaft position sensor is bad the motor will show an alarm and limit power to 75%.

I have had the same issue on my 2016 250 Verados. Purchased new in 2017.

I boat on Lake St Clair in Michigan.  Spoke to dealer when new and he said "let's see what happens when the water warms up". Sure enough, when the lake warmed up, the flucuating water temp stopped.

It has acted the same for 3 seasons now. Never an alarm.

Hello all.  I have a 2018 Verado 300 L6.  It was rigged with Vesselview 502.  My installer/dealer was not well versed with it and it took time to get operational.  I continue to have an annoying issue with fuel level.
  - I do have a fuel tank sender and made connections they recommended....but cannot get fuel level from tank sender.  Tried everything I could.
  - So, I setup the tank and based level on consumption.  This seems fairly accurate (off a bit after a season of use if I am accurate with refill), but I find I have to continue to go in and setup the tank.  It seems like when I power down and back up, I lose the setting for basing tank level off engine fuel flow rates. 

Anyone familiar with vessel view setup and can help me a little?

By the way...I do love the motor.  I put it on a 1984 Seafarer that I restored....so a 22' Grady White.  It runs well.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gURstYtVMWY
As a side, I am curious what a 350 or 400 would have gained me in performance or mileage improvement?

Thanks so much!

Looks right if you want all the bells and whistles...

If you don't need to fish 10 hours a day.... I troll (on Erie) with a 24V Minn Kota on a 20' BW Dauntless for 7 hours no sweat @ 1.5-2.0 mph.  That install was $2500 for motor and batteries.  If I need to troll faster, or into the wind, I run the main motor and still use the autopilot on the electric motor (200 Verado with 17P prop).  So I can troll any speed from 0-40 mph, and keep the transom clean for swimming.  The trade-off is trolling range.

If no alarms, run it as is.
