Thank you so much for your involvement with the Owner's Club Forum! We hope you've gotten some great information and had the chance to interact with other owners on the current system.
I know there are several discussions on here about live wells, but I have not seen my problem discussed yet, so, here it is. I have a new to me, 07 196 REF, 4 swivel fishing seats instead of the little toilet/changing room thing. Anyway, livewell does work, but, appears there is no intermittent (automatic) operation. In other words, once it fills, it just keeps going into overflow and constantly re-circulates. With others I have had, you had a manual/automatic switch, that allowed the constant on, or re-circulate mode where it would go on and off and on about every 5 or so minutes. This boat only has 1 live well, but the helm switch says livewell #1 and livewell#2. It will light up red in both positions, and operates the livewell in position #1, but #2 appears to do nothing when switched to it. Am I missing something? Do these deckboats not have the livewell feature I am looking for or ? Ideas please...................THANKS
I don't know for certain about your boat's configuration, but on my new 2016 2200 DC OB, my Livewell only has one position for that switch and when it is on, it runs continuously to overflow. Occasionally I had a problem getting it to prime and stay on, but the last several times I used it, it just goes on and stays running until I turn it off. Only on and off for a single switch on mine.
Your boat probably had the option to be rigged with another livewell. The location would have been what is now probably a storage area in the front or back.
There are control units you can install so that the water flow is timed. It replaces your current switch. Here's a couple I found at Cabelas:
