yes..I believe it's the brown wire that should be directly connected too the battery....that way if your in the water and away from the boat of there is a failure your not aware of...the bilge switch should automatically trigger the pump to begin pumping...

Saved my but last summer. We had flooding and bad rain, my cover ripped and the boat started to fill with rain water. I looked out the window and actually saw the pump turn on.
