Auto bilge pump not working

Recommended Posts

gobble

My auto bilge isn't working. There's a weather pack fitting back by the engine and I tested the wires and get power when the bilge switch is on but no constant power all the time. So it's not the float switch.

Does anyone know where the constant hot wire to the bilge pump originates?

On my '10 it starts at the forward most battery of my 2 in the observers compartment. There is a red wire and a red blade fuse holder, 5 amp IIRC.

I would say that it would have to originate at the overcurrent protection device that protects the bilge pump.

Thanks guys, I'm running to the lake in a little bit. It would make sense that it starts at the batteries as supposedly the bilge keeps power even when the battery switch is turned to off.

That was exactly it. Thanks. All is good now.
