WARNING: This article includes equipment sold by Electromaax and I must preface this post with some cautions.
Since writing this article I have received lots of complaints of poor customer service regarding Electromaax and their other shadow companies. Please be careful these complaints are still coming in even in 2017 and this article was written in 2011.
I had personally received decent service, but I am an n=1, and a dealer, and a guy with many articles out there so I may get better service than an individual customer. I simply can not ignore the complaints, and must be honest with my readers. I have had more complaints about Electromaax than any other product or company than I have ever written about. A SHOCKING NUMBER.. Please do your own home work on Electromaax customer service.
There are other companies producing similar products, namely Balmar and Mark Grasser DC Solutions, both of whom have excellent customer support & considerably better track records for customer service. I am not saying don't buy from Electromaax, just letting you know a fair number of boaters have not been happy with their customer service.
