Author Topic:   Pump Out Switch Wiring 1999 OUTRAGE 23

I'm replacing the key switch for the waste pumpout system on my 1999 OUTRAGE 23. There are two wires that connect to the switch -- one has a fuse in-line and the other does not. They are the same color (brown), and unmarked. I assume one goes to the connection 'B' for battery and the other goes to the position marked 'I' for ignition. Can anybody help? No Whaler place help nearby.

VGM,

I can't look at mine for a couple of weeks but would offer this advice, use a volt meter and check for continuity with the key in the off position and then again in the on position. Should show continuity only in on position. Check the switch before attaching the wires. If you still need help in a couple of weeks let me know.

The normal practice in wiring is to place the circuit protection (fuse) ahead of the disconnect (switch). From this you could infer that the lead to the switch with the fuse is from the battery. Of course, you could verify this in about five seconds with a voltmeter.

[This article has been edited to remove non-standard abbreviations, particularly ones invented to substitute for the model names of Boston Whaler boats. Also, year designators have been re-written in four digits, instead of two digits and an apostrophe. I find that there is little value in attempting to save a key stroke or two of typing with the result of obscuring the information content of an article with these unnecessary abbreviations. I have repeatedly asked that articles do not use abbreviations for the year or for the model names of the Boston Whaler boats. That request is again repeated. Compliance would be greatly appreciated.]

set up.

Jim,

For those who aren't familiar with your repeated requests, it might be beneficial to have a reference for your standard posting protocols. Although I see that folks figured out that the non-standard OR was actually code for OUTRAGE and that '99 was actually 1999, I certainly don't want to offend the moderator's sensibilities. If I've missed that listing, perhaps you can point me in the right direction.

Vmg,
My waste pump out was not done at the factory.
The wires going to the kill switch are white,and
there is no in line fuse.
