I replaced my fuel pump and filter yesterday. While I was in there I discovered a 7/16" layer of water in the bottom of the tank!

So I wired up some extention wires to hook the old pump to the battery, connected a long run of 5/16 fuel line and pumped the tank dry. A guess is I got 2 - 3 gallons of water out. I wiped the inside of the tank as far as I could reach with a rag.

The new pump and filter will be starting as fresh as possible now.

How difficult was your charger install? How long did it take?

Very clean install, Cameron.

Install was not tough. I hate wires, so the hardest part was routing everything so it was hidden. I used a flexible rod to fish all the wires from my mounting location, under the floor and then to the battery box. All in all, it took probably 3 nights and a 12-pack!

Thanks.

I bought a Guest 16102. It is a dual bank 12amp (6amp per bank). I then installed a flush receptacle.

That's absolutely beautiful! I'm going to be winterizing my boat here within the next two weeks. I'm going to work the gel-coat over good. If I'm lucky, it will shine out like yours.
