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.
