Default Pressure Water Pump

'97 2300SC. My fuses are good, but I can't get any water to pump from the transom shower nor cabin sink. I'd like to troubleshoot the fresh water pump but I don't know where it is. Any suggestions? Thanks!

-Dave

Dave - Pull the floor storage deck lid, you'll see a carpeted box at the forward (Bow) area. There are two long wood screws holding that box in place. The screws are located on the "face" of the box, towards the bottom of the well area. Remove the screws, slide the box aft and away, and look down into the hull. You'll find what you are looking for! These fresh water pumps don't last forever, especially if they get submerged in water, but are easily replaced! Good Luck!

Simple places to start:

1) Is the battery switch on?

2) Is the battery charged?

3) Is the pressure water pump switch turned on? (There should be a lit (red) light in the galley somewhere. This needs to be on in order for the pump to work. This allows you to leave the battery switch on, however a ruptured water line won't fill the bilge faster than the bilge pump can empty it, or for the pump to run endlessly when there is no water).

4) Locate the pressure water pump and verify it is getting 12 V to the pump itself using a volt-meter.

Thanks for the recommendation. At this point the switch doesn't light up, nor can I hear the pump kick in, with the battery switch on. Sounds like I have some electrical troubleshooting to do...

The bulbs die on the switches. I wouldn't use the presence of a light as a critical troubleshooting step. I would make sure I'm getting 12v to the switch, then when on whether I'm getting 12v to the pump.

No 12v to the switch, then back track to the fuse. 12v to the switch , then I'd test the outbound side of the switch to see if it is the switch. If not, then test the leads to the pump.

You can by-pass everything with a remote 12v battery and some jumpers too. Hit it straight to the pump and see what happens.

make sure a valve isn't closed some where in the line.
