A couple of thoughts. Make sure you know where and how you're going to install it. It will take up more room than you think. We have a Catalina 300 with the MPC controller and it took up almost the entire quarter berth even with the membrane and and clark pump mounted on the ceiling. The filters and controls are located on engine bulkhead/wall.
The MPC is voltage sensitive and will scramble at 16 V. We had this happen comming down Baja due to the wind generator. You have to have the right cable and software to reprogram, which I had left at home, so I had to pay someone to reprogram it. The watermaker can be run in manual mode so this doesn't stop production. Also the software is available to only those who took the factory class to become a "roving repairman". Aside from inland travel the MPC controler is useful for short trips home. The manual said two weeks and you shold pickle it but we have gone over three weeks.
