|This weekend we were out, and I noticed when I would turn on my blower or bilge it would cut out my radio as if my battery were getting weak, but it is not and reads 100%. Eventually I lost everything on my dash, and found a 10amp fuse was blown, I replaced and when I turned on the bilge it blow immediatly again, so replaced it with a 15, everything now works, but when I turn on the bilge it blows out the little button breaker under the switch. Do I have a short in my bilge somewhere or is it possibly burnt up? |
This is an 05 moomba LSV.
|Hey Dave... I have an 08 LSV and my bilge was getting plugged up from carpet fiber and blowing the fuse. There is a screen filter in the pump, try seeing if that is plugged up causing the fuse to blow.|
|Took a closer look tonight, and when I flipped the switch for the first time it ran the pump for a second then blew the button breaker. I reset it now my bilge switch will stay on without tripping the breaker but I get nothing out of the pump. Is there another screen inside it after you pull the bottom cage part off? That did not seem to be clogged. I would hate to go buying a new pump when it could be something else.|
|Dave, I looked at mine last night and just saw the one screen.|
|Thanks for your help Mike. The pump just ended up being shot. I upgraded to the 750 GPH, but had to cut to the wires and use butt connectors instead of the plug, so you will probably see a pic of me in the please use your blower thread|
|Put silicone or marine sealant on the ends of your connectors.|
|I used butt connectors that you can melt the ends with a heat gun to seal it, so they should be pretty good.|
