Raw water pump overheating


Recommended Posts

Wyatt23LSV

I just replaced my raw water pump on my 2001 Sunscape 23LSV. I hook it up to a fake lake and when I idle up its start to smoke and get really hot. Has anyone had this issue or is there something I need to check? Thanks

You will probably need to get another impeller and check yours again.  Good chance it got torched.  When you pull it apart, check the housing for damage.

If I had a dollar for every time we helped troubleshoot an overheat issue with folks using a fake-a-lake... :Frustrated:

Eh, they work fine.  You just need to know what you are doing.  I'd still rather use one than stick that chunk of plastic in my inlet line that the flush ports use.
