That is a great question. I was just about to ask the same thing, as I was very curious about that over the weekend. Thanks

guys, i am speaking for my boat with two batteries. when you go to the off position, the green light remains, on. just wanted to clear that up, just in case..;)

ON my X2 with the dual battery set up the bilge pumps remain on when the battery is in the off position. The dual battery Factory setup is really nice on the newer boats.

If you have the Rule-mate automatic bilge pump, and you most likely do, there is a spot where you can hold your finger for 5 seconds to test.

I tested mine today. The fwd one sounds like it has rocks in it. I guess I need to replace it.
