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.

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
