Bow ballast pump not working


Recommended Posts

2019 23 LSV.  Not sure if it may be clogged with debris or a fuse or something else.  Anyone know where the fuse panel for the ballast pumps is?  It's not a CB at the panel at the helm.  The connections are good.  We did take some water over the bow but I can't believe that would make a pump fail.  There was quite a lot of debris in the water.  Ending up ripping a fin off my surf board.  :(

I’m not 100% sure where the fuses are, but did you verify the pump is running? If it’s running I’d take it apart to see if there are weeds or something else in it. You should be able to get to it through the center floor hatch.

I didn’t hear the pump running.  It goes to the shop soon for a few other thing.  I hope it will be a warranty repair.   I’ll report back.

How did it turn out?  Wednesday we went out with no problems, today (Saturday) the front tank would not fill, back home. I checked and the pump on port side of the center circle opening was not buzzing at all but the starboard one buzzed when turning on center tank and the middle as well as forward tank drAin buzzed when operation those pumps.  2013 23LSV
