    Where are you mounting your bilge pumps???

    ...in your RXP's? I just got a Rule 500 and was wondering where the best location is to mount it. Pics would be great if you have them. Thanks fellas.

    Rex,

    I would mount it on the right side all the way in the back...Were the stock Exhaust outlet was..Youll have plenty of room and when your riding the water will be forced to the back of the boat..I know alot of guys that have them and run them in the back of the boat...

    I mounted one on each side of the pump area. There is a somewhat flat area there that works well.

    I usually do not have any. But last year I rubbed a hole in my inter cooler water line that was dumping alot more water in than the factory bailers could remove. Lucky enough my trailer was still close and in the water and I was able to get it out and drain it in about 45 minutes.
    After that I will never own a ski without electric bilge pumps.

    I drilled the bracket that holds the bailler foot and screwed it to it(on the exhaust side) and wired it into the Mpem.The outlet hose goes to the spare output thru the pump shoe you have to drill it out.

    Mine is next to my muffler in the way back of the ski. I removed my bailers all together.

    They top where did you wire in the bilge pump for the mpem? Would love to do that instead of a switch.

    Any SOLID purple wire is a 12v power supply.
    I mounted mine next to the pump tunnel on the supercharger side. As long as you get it so no water will enter through the supercharger inlet you should be good to go.
