I have some for a 06. No timers though. Will try to find them and post them up.

You have a couple of choices here.

1. Get your timers reprogrammed to just be on off type with a preset amount of time. There is a user here that reprograms them.

2. Rewire them with 3 relays to each pump. A couple of user here have done that.

3. Rewire them like the 06 none timer Mastercraft factory way which only requires 2 relays per pump. If you want to look at what is needed for this method check out the linked thread.

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=40934

It has the complete ballast relay wiring setup to include part numbers.

Thanks a lot !!! Wow very good working - awesome. I want to try #3 with 2 relays.

Short question: the lights(LED) turn on when switch is on (fill+empty)? have the switch nummers for wire-cable connection?

Yes the lights work on the switch. I would investigate what switches you currently have, they may work.

I'm sorry. I'm not sure what you are asking.

Think he means the pin numbers ("nummern" in german) on the switches.

I'll check to see if the poles(pins) on my 06 switch is labelled(numbered) but I don't think they were. Likewise, you will need to check to see if your 08 switches have 8 poles(pins) on them. They may be the exact same switch.

I can reprogram the timers for you. That way you don't have to build your own solution.

here is a thread about it.
