Wondering if anyone who has a 2019 or earlier 325os with a generator has a better diesel pickup pump for the fischer panda generator....It is very loud ...., mounted under the grill on the port side behind the slide out cabinet, under the grill Thanks Tony

I have a 2015 325os, and find the fuel pump for the Fischer Panda to be very loud. I was considering changing to a Carter universal marine electric fuel pump. I think that would be quieter. I had that on my other boat with a Kohler generator, and never heard the fuel pump.

I'm going to try that myself then...Seems strange we are the only ones with this issue....I`v been researching this further, and they say the bolts that hold the pump on can't be screwed into the fiberglass directly, so I am going to try that also Thanks Tony

Svend, HI I found out the make of the pump It is a Facet 40176.....Looks the same as the little old one, but is silent as far as I can tell....Ran it for an hour or so today and all is ok....Hope this helps Tony

Svend I'm sorry to report the pump that I mentioned did not do the trick I don't know what they plan on doing, maybe re route the hoses, but I don't think it was powerful enough ...I`m going to suggest two of the quiet pumps, as they together may be strong enough....They put the noisy one back on, and the generator worked.....with the new pump the generator worked for a while then wouldn't`t start, belched whitish smoke...I thought it had water in the fuel, but no its the little fuel pick up Sorry Tony
