302 switch "BILGE" What does it do?

Recommended Posts



I purchased a 2001 Monterey 302 last year. We absolutely love it!

On the dashboard, there is a switch labeled "BILGE", to the left of the engine ignition switches.

This particular switch doesn't seem to do anything. What is it for?

It manually turns on your automatic bilge pump(s)


You should check connection at the pump to see if it has power. If it does not turn on when hitting the switch,

your bilge pump(s) may not be working. Potential dangerous situation.
