Odd question....

5 posts in this topic

I was out on Saturday and couldn't get the livewell switch to work. It would not fill on Auto or Manual. The only way it would work is if I put it on recirculate. My question is, on that day I was over my load capacity by over 200 lbs. My friend and his girlfriend are rather "big-boned". I know the boat was sitting farther into the water than normal. Would this affect the livewell pump in any way?

The next day I was out with my wife and son and it worked fine??? It is a brand new Crestliner if that makes a difference.

Thanks for any opinions.

Puzzeling, Only thing I can think of is the over flow may have been under water and there is a safty switch to prevent more water being pump in.

If you can't hear the pump running that's the problem. You can run it out of the water - try it now that it's on the trailer. You should have no problem hearing the impeller run when nothing else is.

If it's not running check the fuse, pull the pump out of the housing if it's a cartidge pump and see if it spins on it's own or with a little help.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
