SD 217...A couple of bilge pump questions.
Hello Everyone, I have a SD217. How/where do I access the bilge pump? Also, I have dual batteries. Will the bilge pump automatically work when the battery switch is in the off position? That is to say is the pump wired before or after the battery switch? My boat is in the water 24/7. If there is very heavy rain and I've not been to the boat in a week or so, I must manually run the pump for 4-5 minutes to clear the bilge . Even after restoring the battery power the pump doesn't cut on automatically and must be switched on manually from the helm. For this reason I believe the float is malfunctioning and may need to be replaced. How should this pump normally function? Thanks, Paul Bolden
