New to me 2006 270 gen and ac question

About to sign a deal on another 270. Anyone with an ‘06 know hourly average fuel consumption on the Koehler 5k gen? Also having trouble finding the ac raw water pump. It is not with the shower and bilge pump drains like my 2000 under the aft mattress. Thanks.

    Paul, the hourly fuel consumption depends on the load put on the Genny. Kohler has a fuel consumption chart somewhere but fully loaded I would guess 1.5 gallons an hour. Not too many 270s have a genny and AC.

    Thanks. I will look for the chart. My houseboat had a 12.5k Westerbeke that only burned about a gallon an hour running ac and a couple small loads. Debated about the factory gen since I could run my little Honda with the ac on at about a gallon per 7 to 8 hours.

    My 2002 has the ac pump in the aft bilge.  It's tucked up in there...hard to see.

    I had thought that under load the 5e was somewhere between .75 and 1.0 gph
