    Yes, polarity matters on those. They will work either way but one way is much slower than the other. Not sure on how to take them apart, sorry.

    Are you adding another inlet through the bottom of just doing the "T" and 2 pumps like I did (& Newty)? I'm already ready to consider a third pump. It seems like it's taking 8-10 min. just to fill the surf bag.

    Thanks. I just did some math:

    750 lbs / 8.35 lbs/gal = 90 gal. (rounded)

    1200 gal./hr = 20 gal./min.

    So, it should take under 5 min. to fill the surf bag in a perfect world and about half that using 2 pumps.

    Using 2 Rule 2000 (supposed to be 1200 gph), I guess 8-10 min. is really pretty darn good if you consider I'm using 3/4 hose and the water passes through a manifold and an Irritrol valve. Maybe I'll leave it alone and spend the money on BEER!

    I'm going to recheck the polarity of the wires on the pumps just to be sure though. If one is pumping slowly that can affect the fill times significantly.

    With regards to the amperage of the fuses, you may want to consider adding relays in the engine compartment and steal the power source from the starter wire.

    Jesse, I have the gI wiring in place with relays as well as the gIII wiring and relays. I was just interested in those who added extra fill pumps from the same controls did they blow the fuse and or circuits . Your solution is way over my head I think....

    Nah, his solution makes perfect sense. Except for the fact none of us have ever blown a fuse running a couple pumps off that switch/circuit. If I ever have a problem I'll do exactly what Jesse suggested.

    I did this to take the stress off of the switches. The power for the fill pump and evac pumps in my year LSV were routed through the switches. I built a bank of relays that are powered from the starter cable and re-routed all of the power for the pumps through the relays instead of the switches which allowed the switches to run much cooler and should extend their life.

    The above link has a section about the relays and power from my balast upgrade last year.

    Help, I wired up some deutsch splitters to control both fill pumps. (page one of this thread on blue tarp). I left the G1 wiring in place and added the G111 wiring in its place last year, now i am using the old G1 for a bow sac.

    ??? both pumps work when when using the fill from any of the switches . When i use the fill switch on ay of the g111 panel the fill light illumintes of the g1 on the dash??? no lights the other way g1 fill ligts on no lights on g111 panel .

    any thoughts on this would be apprciated.

    Joe,

    I am pretty sure you will have to replace them with larger (amp capacity) fuses. I looked at my notes from my upgrade (I added two T-800's to the stock Rule) and I upgraded the fuses. Not sure of the exact details any more though.
