    The Parmax 4 is a run dry pump. I have one on my raw water washdown and have forgotten to turn it off a couple of time when I pulled the boat. Only a couple of hours though.

    It's a diaphragm pump so you couldn't have done too much to the pump. Rebuild kits are cheap, give it a shoot

    Is the motor running at all?

    And when you are done fixing the pump, install a MASTER POWER switch. No more toasted motors or dead batteries. But then it will only help if you remember to turn it off. :-)

    AMEN!
    Last fall we took my buddies boat to upper NY for a remote 4 day fishing trip.
    On the morning of the trip, he accidently hit his livewell switch. We got to NY and found the battery dead (which left us only 2 to run teh trolling motor for the full 4 days.)
    Just rigging my new boat this month and have rewired the pos feed for the factory fuse/switch panel for the bilge, livewell and nav lights through a master switch. Otherwise, I could just see me doing the same thing :-(
