Both livewells not working

4 posts in this topic

Ok here is what I know.

I have a lund pro-v with 2 livewells. Last night we caught a fish and put it in front livewell. turned swithch on and the livewell started to fill. after about 5 minutes the livewell stopped working, went to put fish in rear livewell and that one did not work either. Checked the fuse block and the fuse for front livewell had blown. the one for the rear was still ok. tried new fuse for front livewell and still would not work.

Now i am going out to garage to trouble shoot and hopefully solve problem. Anyone have ideas on where to start or what may hyave happened????

Take the pump apart so you can get to the impeller and make sure it's clean, small debris will sometimes get in there and jam them --- then the fuse blows. It't not uncommon.

You can also try forward and backward flushing the livewell plumbing to clear out anything blocking the lines, debris, renegade minnow, etc. Another thing to look for is an airlock in the hose, if the hoses are too long they sometimes develop an air lock bubble at the high point.

Good luck getting it figured out.

With respect to the rear, can you hear the pump run?

If you can, then you'll need to make sure the valve that controls fill, recirc and empty is working correctly. They're located under a panel in the middle of the floor in the cockpit area of your boat (not up on the front deck). Remove the 4 screws, pull the panel up and play with the valve control and make sure the cable is moving at the valve.

If it is like my Lund, there must be two pumps since there are two switches to turn them on and off.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
