"Wayne, you always want the bilge pump to work even if the batteries are switched in the off position. Replacing a burned out bilge pump is much cheaper than replacing your boat. Mike"

"Thanks for the replies guys. Well I got to thinking that if it was wired "correctly", the batteries would eventually go dead if a detrimental leak occurred and the boat would sink in the slip. On the other hand, if I kept shore power…"

"I had a similar issue with my 2008 B43. The bilge pump was wired with the radio and also needed the main breaker turned on. Crazy, rewired and all was well."

B40 Bilge Pump

I purchased a '08 Beneteau 40 late last summer and just realized my bilge pump won't work in Auto or On position without the house battery on. Isn't this backwards?  I hate to think I need to leave the house battery On for a couple of weeks while I'm away. Is this normal?See More

"Well Bob as luck would have it, my boat does not have the optional macerator pump for holding tank pump out. There is a black switch under the sink but it is for the shower sump drain. Thanks again for the reply."

Bob Davenport replied to Wayne's discussion B40 Holding Tank Plumbing
"Wayne, There is a black button below the head sink that, when held, will pump the holding tank overboard.  Going by memory - I think it's rate of flow is 10 gal per minute so it takes 2 minutes to pump out a full holding tank.  You do…"
