When I turned the power on this morning I heard one of the bilge pumps running and it would not shut off. I turned all power off, hoping it would reset somehow when it got power again, but no go. I poured water in the compartment and it functioned properly but kept on after water was pumped out. I checked for obstructions but couldn’t find any. Anything else I should look for.
Thanks.

Red and white pumps.

You should be able to pull the pump and then check the float switch.

I guess the Lord needed a fishing buddy more than me.
