Hi all, Well I have fixed the leaks
and I am now redoing the bilge pump
and switches. I have a rulke 500GPH for the everyday pump with a Water
Witch 101 switch. The bilge pump
has 3 wires-Black(ground) brown and brown with a white stripe. The switch has 3 wires-red, tan and black. Ok, The blacks are all run to ground. I connected the red from switch to auto on the toggle switch at the panel. I connected the tan from the water
witch to brown striped from pump and ran them to the manual side of switch at the panel. The other brown wire on the pump is not connected...The pump runs with the switch turned to Manual and Automatic both!
I wired it as per the picture with the brown pump wire not connected anywhere...I feel this is a traveler to the switch but not sure how to do it..
I have searched for a wire diagram for this switch/pump combo but they have the pump with 2 wires and switch with 3 wires or the pump with 3 wires and the switch with 2 wires...Nothing with 3 wires on each! How do I connect this thing???
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can send me...I have been making great progress with her since the leak situation and now a minor setback...I don't want her sitting with no bilge
pump...I am forever paranoid now about leaks!!!
