    Bilge pump wiring

    I have this bilge switch for a rule 500 auto bilge pump.
    http://www.rivayamaha.com/RivaStore/...0Rotary%20Type

    There are threee wires coming out of the switch - White,Red Blue coming from the switch.

    2 Wires from the bilge pump Red & Black

    What hooks up to what ?

    No instructions @ Riva or anywhere else I could find. Thanks in advance.

    Which Bilge pump do you have? I believe mine had three wires one for manual one for auto and a ground. The switch got a Positive the manual and the auto wire. you run the ground directly to the pump.

    It appears that the switch is a rotary switch.
    Does it turn clockwise and counterclockwise and have 2 possible stop positions ?

    So you need to get a ohm meter or continuity tester to determine which wire is common.

    Take the negative(black) from the bilge pump and run it directly to the negative side of battery.

    Positive side(red) of bilge goes to switch.

    Other side of switch goes to inline fuse to the battery. I believe I used a 3 amp fuse in my ski.

    Another possibility is to use a relay to energize the bilge, it all depends on how much current the switch you use can handle.

    Hope that helps.

    You have a two position switch all you need is a simple single position on off switch and you just run the power through it and ground directly to the pump. you can use one side of the switch you bought. cap the other unused wire.

    Here is the PDF I found on Rules site the one you bought is for PWC two wire only on all the time once you throw the switch. I have the rule 500 it is 3 wire and allows manual on or auto mode and uses the three position switch like you have. like I said before you can use one position of the switch and it will work fine.
