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.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
