MUX Switches

Recommended Posts

I have a 2010 LSV 23. My question is can I use my blank MUX switched for additional ballast pumps?

I thought about this as well, and the issue you run in to is that the switch has to be programmed for multiple functions since you don't want to have fill and drain running at the same time (via different switches). You would also have to put a few relays in so you don't run a high-amp (pump) load directly from the MUX switches. Here is the document for programming the switches:

For what I wanted to do I ended up with standalone switches (from wakemakers) and will put them in some type of housing and mount them during the off season.

Ditto what mikeo said. Don't MUX it up. KISS theory.

Thank you for the link, that explained everything :) I saw wakemakers relays and their wire diagraming such.... but never the MUX programming.
