Lund Questions

7 posts in this topic

I've been able to find almost all my decals but can't seem to find the back graphics. Anyone know a good place to find decals for a pro v?

Have only owned camo boats up to now and am wondering is it a good idea to wax an aluminum painted boat and what is the best way and products to keep up the paint, hull and even the motor cover?

The live wells have me a bit confused? I don't use them much but want them to work properly. I can't get my front one to fill but the pump sounds like it is trying to pump water. Are the live wells on seperate pumps? Is the impeller in the pump bad or am I missing something simple? The back one fills with water no matter where the control switches are set and circulates water into the bait well like it should. I can't get the back one to empty. For now the back one I've just put a plug in it and that seems to work. Don't want all that extra weight if I don't need it. Getting a bit frustrated with the live wells. Seems like I'm just missing something?

I'd call Lund or go through a lund dealer to get the decals. If they're not available on hsolist I'd say that's your only option.

Wax should be just fine on the aluminum - it's got a clear coat on it. Be carefull around the decals though.

I presume you read my reply in another thread: Livewell Question?

When you are trying to fill the front livewell, what setting do you have the valve on? It needs to be on Fill or Empty. If it's on recirc and there's no water in the livewell to pump it'll sound like you describe.

With respect to emptying the back one - when you set it to empty it doesn't drain? It won't fully drain until you either pull the boat out of the water or run on plane until it emptys, then switch the valve to fill or recirc.

Check to see if you have individual pumps. Are they canister type pumps? If they are, you may need to (while pump is on) twist to loosen canister then retighten the pump will then prime its self. My pumps seem to vapor lock and not prime some times and this gets them to work.

Marine man hit things on the head. Make sure that your control knob is on fill for filling. Sometimes when mine won't work I'll put the big motor in reverse to force water up the intake lines and to the pump. Seems to work if there is an air lock or something.

You are correct the back one will not fully empty till I pull it out of the water no matter where the switch is.

The front one seemed to have some trouble filling late last year when I got the boat but would fill none the less. Now it will not fill at all with the switch on rec, fill or empty. But I can hear the pump turn on.

There's only a small access hole in the splash pan in front of the motor. Not much room to even get my arm down in there. Can't see the pump. Can see the hoses going under the back well and that is where I can hear the pump running. What's the best way to get at that pump, pull the back platform? Could the 2 problems be related if it is only one pump? But I have 2 screens on the back of the boat with 2 seperate hoses in the boat so can I assume they have seperate pumps?

Will try the reverse thing and keep tinkering with it.

Appreciate all the help.

Looked into lund decals and seats OOOOUUUUCH! Holy shnikee that stuff is spendddeee. $240 bucks for a seat. I need four seats eventually because I have the lund seats made out of wood and they are getting kind of soft. For four seats I'd have to spend over $1,000 after taxes. YIKES!

The back one won't fully empty until you're on plane or until it's out of the water because you effectively have a hole in the livewell to outside of the boat - water pressure will force water into the livewell until it's at the same level as the water outside the boat.

ANYFISH offered a good tip too - sometimes (and almost always the front one) the pumps will get air lock and need to be backfilled a bit by putting the motor in reverse and running the throttle up some.

Access to the pumps (yes, there are 2) and valves (2 also) is through a rectangular floor panel (not an access panel, you'll need to remove part of the floor) in the center of the boat, almost always right before the step up to the front deck or right in front of the rear storage compartments. The panel is probably 2' long at the most... the one that's about 6' or so is for the fuel tank. There will be 4 screws, one in each corner of the panel. Pull those and you'll have full access to the pumps and valves.

One thing I would try first is to remove the screen that runs to the front livewell (you may have to experiment to see which one it is) and run water from a garden hose into the fitting after you screw the screen off and turn your pump on. Does it pump water then?

Took the panel off and turned the switch for the front live well. The set screw on the cable was not tight. When the switch was moved the hole cable moved not allowing the inner wire to move the valve. Adjusted and tightend it and works properly now. The back pump sounds different than the front one even though they are the same pump. The front sounds like it's grinding a bit guessing the front one is starting to go? Also found out the bilge pump wasn't secured down to its mount and the auto pump wasn't working so fixed both of those. Wow there's alot of plumbing involved with both live wells and bilge pumps. Even found the live well light and hooked that back up.

Appreciate all the tips really helped!

    • The resharpening doesn't kill my vibe towards the K-drill over the Nils. Babying things aren't part of the average consumers mindset. Durability is what they want.    I'm still on the hunt for an electric version that will suit my newly adapted way of fishing. If I can drill 20 holes in a day I'll be as happy as a fat kid at a cake eating contest. 
    • Oh go back to the Hey eyeguy BBQ post and bug BigDave!
    • Because your usual response is to demand whether I support this of that from some politician or what you claim is "my party", to try to deflect and obfuscicate.   Nobody can make you do anything here, but if you are prescribing policy it seems like you should be able to defend it with facts.
    • You must buy it.... I know you don't catch them!!!
    • I'll have to wait till I find a fresh road kill!! A plug your pie hole ding dong!
    • Hey don't get me involved in your frivolous hokus pokus!
    • Fun fact, CO alarms actually won't go off until 70 ppm is reach over 60 minutes. I believe this stems from Chicago FD responding to too many false CO calls. Law was passed to increase the level of exposure to lower emergency calls. Sofia's law is challenging this on boats and trying to mandate low level CO detectors be installed...I believe the incident happened at much less.That said MN is the first state to require CO detectors on boats with cabins.   Get a CO detector that displays an actual reading or better yet, find a low level CO monitor.   CO has a half life of around 4 hours...meaning if u get exposed with a level of say 20, going outside a few minutes won't help much espically if you go back into your infected fishouse....after 4 hrs of fresh air you'll be down to 10...hence the importance of the CO monitor and not just thinking going outside once an hour is doing much good if u have a leak.   That story made headlines but there was another bad CO incident that happened that same week regarding an ice fisherman...who also did not have a CO detector.
    • Nils extensions go on the bottom of the auger and have the helical.  You remove the blade and put the extension on.  They are made for all models of Nils.   Yes of coarse I've used a Milwaukee Fuel with an 8" Nils and posted video.  Less torque, faster,  but most importantly better battery life using the Nils.   . Yes they weigh a pound or two more then the KDrill because they aren't made from plastic.    If this comes down to blades well let's go there then. Kdrill has free sharpening but takes 3 weeks.   Did you know the material taken off that type blade and mount means less bite and therefore can never cut like new.  That is also why it is up to thier discretion if your blade can be sharpened.   A Nils head is blade and mount and can be adjusted after sharpening to cut as new.   So a nick that would ruin the KDrill blades can be removed from the Nils and still cut like it was intended to. I recently repaired a Nils blade that was used to dig post holes. My point is a Nils should serve its owner for a very long time. In 10 years I've dulled one Nils blade and that was from drilling into some buried trash left on the ice.
