    Bilge pump wiring

    I finally decided to install an electric bilge. I mounted it with the stock bracket with 1 finger bent up, and a hose clamp. Now for the wiring. I like my installs to be clean, and look like they were there from the factory. I don't want to run a switch, or have to think about it at all. When the motor's on, the pump is on, and vice versa.

    After reveiwing the wiring diagrams, it looks like the only source of 12V is the power lead for the MFD. Has anyone tapped this for a pump? Will it even supply the required amperage? I'd start poking around with the voltmeter and the ski running on the hose, but the carbs are in pieces right now.


    Thanks

    Those pumps draw a few amps you might consider going through a relay. did you get the automatic or manual pump?

    Bill is right dont go from the MFD with out a relay for the battery current ,that way you wont have a problem , the other is what Bill is reffering to, to automatic has a float and cuts on when you need it.........

    It's a manual pump, but I may go with an auto(current sensing) if I can find one cheaper than they have at riva. I guess I could wire a relay and use the MFD power to trigger it. Maybe even hide everything inside the electrical box Sounds like an autopsy is in order.

    My polaris was SOOOOOOOOO much easier. It already had the terminals & fuse holder on the circuit board. All I had to do was run a jumper and the 2 pump leads

    Bass Pro Shops sells the automatic pump for 55 dollars http://www.basspro.com/servlet/catal...=SearchResults or you can use the automatic bilge control from Jetski Solutions (pic below). I'm using the pressure switch from Jetski Solutions to turn on my Vantec fans and bilge pump.
