Whether it's on a wake boat filling ballast or on a fishing boat filling a bait tank, it still uses the same 12-volt system going through the same wires, so there's no reason for their to be any extra strain.
Thanks Dave a few years ago there was a fat sac pump out there that was doing it to alot of boats and it was a 2000 also. I was thinking of adding another pump to my 2001 San for the center sack in the ski locker and that looks like the one to go with.
I had a 2000gph Rule pump that was wired to connect to one of my batteries in the back. This was ideal because I could hook up a pump for the back and then use the 12V for a 1100 pump for the sac in the front.
I did wire a 12V connection for my 2000gph but it once blew the fuse on my 12v, could of been because it was wired shady. Everyone who has ever ridden with me comments on how fast the 2000 pump was, its definely worth it.
my 2000 kept melting 12V plugs. makes sense, as most of the plugs are rated around 7A and the pump is rated around 20A. What i did was to hardwire it, and use one of the aux switches on the dash to turn it on and off.
ok now we are getting somewhere this the problem I was talking about. Walt a few friends that also had the same problem and they keep melting wires and went back to a 1000. I agree they were very fast but he went threw like 3 pumps. So they must of fixed the problem.
i went through the stock plug plus about 5 others (even bought 'heavy duty' ones.) the dash switches are rated a lot higher so went that route instead. I was pretty surprised that skylon (who sold the 2000gph pump i had) put a 20A fuse in a 7A plug. you think that would open themselves up to some liability issues.
