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.

    • It has either a nickle or chrome plating, I am thinking it is probably nickle.

    • Team Lodge Extreme is a brand that makes what you're looking for and has for a few years now. I think Big Bite also builds one with that functionality and purpose in mind as well. Both are very nice houses.
    • I wanted to share my recent find, I was searching the items on a local online auction and saw what I thought was a Pimple (or Pimpl) spear (it was only labeled as a stainless spear). I stopped by the auction house to take better pictures and compare it to others and I was convinced it was a Pimple, I even had a spear collector I know agree that it was a Pimple. I started bidding on it at the very end of the auction and unfortunately someone else also knew what it was since I found myself in an intense bidding war with one other bidder. We battled back and forth for what seemed like forever, it almost got a little personal and just when i told myself I'd only place one more bid the other person stopped bidding. I was the winner of the spear at $340 (I've heard of other selling for $600 on auction)   When I went to pick up the spear I was given a dumbfounded look and asked "why did you spend so much on this spear???" I explained the history of the spear and the spear maker who was born in the 1860's or 70's depending on where you read the history and immigrated here from Austria.  While I was explaining this a group of people gathered around to listen to the story and they had no clue what they had and were amazed the small spear was that old and that desirable.    It will be a family heirloom that will be passed down in my family for generations to come. Just to even hold this piece of history is awesome. 
    • Well, there went my bfast...thanks a lot!! Maybe I should use my "Delete" button...hmmm...   And I always used to think highly of Duffman.
