    Bilge pump draining battery

    i installed a bilge pump in my 06 RXP and have noticed that it has been killing the cracking power on my ski. Everytime i go to turn on my ski the battery is weak, but with bilge pump disconnected it turns on strong. anything I should look for here? I really want to keep bilge pump on my ski. I have a 750 gph automatic.

    Thanks

    also, I followed JPT7779's write up in the how to section for wiring.

    1. See picture Bilge 1. The pump comes with 3 wires: black . negative lead to battery. Brown/white stripe . Manual ON, and Brown . Auto ON.
    2. Add a BLACK wire to the existing Black wire totaling 43. and solder a connector for the negative battery lead.
    3. Add a YELLOW (any color) wire to the Brown/white stripe wire totaling 93. and solder a connector for the switch.
    4. Add a GREEN (any color) wire to the Brown wire totaling 93. and solder a connector for the switch.
    5. Take the RED Inline fuse holder line and add 60. of RED wire and solder a connector for the switch.
    Attach Black negative lead to battery and RED Inline fuse positive lead to battery.

    Obviously you have something setup wrong, it should not be doing that. I suspect your bilge pump is the kind that runs every 20-30 seconds, which is not intended for this application. Your switch could also be setup wrong.

    What is the specific make and model of your bilge pump? We need to see if you have it wired correctly.

    I've had the setup you read in the how to thread for many years with no issues.

    Need more info to help you.
