I would Wire it to directly to the battery with a switch. Put a inline fuse on the positive line. I have the same pump I think it said 4 amps fuse in the instructions. This way when your ski is sitting in the water it always has power even with the key dissconected. This was suggested by many people when i was doing my install. I think its better to avoid tapping into the mpem if not needed.
As for how the pump works i couldnt tell you its never turned on and i hope it never has too

Just use the ECM to trigger a relay.
Simple and safe.
If you need help I could draw it out for you.

TB did you check this out?
and don`t forget about when the trailer is going over bumps, it will trip the switch enough for pump to come on when bouncing over rutts or pot holes.
wire it up to the battery, positive and negative, depending on certain model pumps, they will cycle every 20 sec to 2 minutes and more...
also if you used a lighted swith or switch panel with light, you know the pump has juice. some panel have a fuse holder built in... take your time, choose wisely...just my 2 cents...

Here a picture of my switch in my GloveBox. My pump has a float in it. When the float is raised about 2-3/4" it starts going untill the float switched drops back down. Pretty much the exact same thing as a Sump pump in your house. With this switch i also have a manual override switch. Before i put her in the water i push the manual button and make sure i can hear it cranking so i know its working properly. Keep in mind with that you need to buy a pump with the manual buttom option wire built into it (so theres 3 wires total coming off the pump)
Ignore the switch to the far right of the panel that was for my bilge blower, got it from a friend that wasnt using it.
