Title: Bilge Float switch - automatic
Post by: salado on June 12, 2018, 03:47:52 PM
If anyone was wondering if you can add a float switch to the stock bilge pump and stock rocker switch system, on a bass tracker PT175........YES you can.

You can still run the pump via the same 2 position (on/off) rocker switch on the console just as before.
AND if the bilge fills up with water it will raise the float and kick on the pump automatically (yes even with the rocker switch off) and the illumination light on the rocker switch will illuminate on the console.

Here is how i wired mine and it's 100% works correctly. (pics below)

beware its a tight fit back there to place the float switch and bilge pump, my arms are all torn up.
