Rewire aerator wiring

5 posts in this topic

Got the boat fired up this weekend and when I flipped on the power switch, the aerators would turn on for about twenty seconds then turn off. After that, they wouldn't respond to me adjusting the switches. This is on a '97 Lund Pro-V. Is this job do-able? I'd like to wire straight to the battery if I had to. Thanks!

I'm going to say that it's the pumps and not the switches. On the main floor just before the battery compartment there is a panel that is about 12X16 inches. Take it off (held on by a bunch of stainless philips screws) and give the pumps a few taps with a wrench or something. One of mine did the same thing a few years ago, a little tap cured it and it's been fine ever since.

I agree on the pumps, not the switches. You can probably remove the impellers to make sure they're clean and not jammed. Also, check for a blown fuse, either in-line or in your fuse block (a pretty sure sign of a stuck impeller). I would definately check those before I started rewiring......

Good luck getting it fixed.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate the help! If I have two livewells, one in front and one in back, I'd find the pump in the back correct? I never remember seeing that smaller floor panel, all mine seem to be the same size. Is there any other place it could be?

Both pumps are in the same spot. If you have a console boat the panel is just to the left of your feet on the floor as you are sitting at the wheel.
