    Bilge pump form a Polaris donor :)

    Like many others I went ahead an added a Bilge pump on my set up. Almost everything I used Ive had sitting around in a box of parts that I stripped off a 99 Polaris Genesis (pump is a 360gph i think). Only thing I bought was a $3 switch at radio shack and a $2 thru hull fitting. One thing I learned almost the hard way is check fit with the seats on too before drilling lol I decided to go in through the read grab rail cut outs, well I shoulda picked other side, because on the right the rear storage been dips down right where I put my fitting. But I stepped back, dug some more in my spare parts and all worked well. Dumped in a gallon of water and wammm it comes flying out the side covering my garage wall...whoops.

    Fitting installed, had to shave a bit off the tail end because of my poor location choice.

    Switch location. No clue what the other holes are from but big one came in handy.

    Switch location...
    That does not look like a sealed or marine grade switch. Beware of long term corrosion risk.

    Also make sure the wiring ends are sealed against moisture and corrosion. If there are screws holding the wire ends to the switch contacts think about vibration over time. Loose screws can cause electrical arcing, which is not a good thing.

    These are what I use, and have never had an issue with one.

    You definitely want to make your bilge set-up as simple, and bullet proof as possible!

    I soldered the wires on and then sealed up with RTV.

    I also had a fuse set up from fog lamps I never used just sitting in my tool box and worked great. I was going to use the bilge switch out of the Polaris as I removed it but its a momentary style, I wanted a set it and forget it style.
