Fresh water not working

Just purchased a  2005 SD 237.  I like it very much, but the fresh water does not work.  When I turn on the switch I hear nothing.  Where do I start to trouble shoot?  I cannot find a drawing in the manual that shows where the Fresh water tank is or the water pump to check it out?  Where to you find those resources?

    Hi slohrmann,

    On our 2007 SD 237 the tank is located rear starboard side under the boarding ladder, fill port is just above the rear exit facing aft. We have an I/O so I just open the engine cover and can see the tank. The pump is located below the deck inside the furthest aft starboard locker, there is a removable piece of plywood and the pump is below that. We love our 237 and have made many little mods to make it even better! Let me know if you have any questions.

    @slohrmann ... here's the response from Terri in Hurricane Customer Support: 

    If the switch is on and you hear nothing that would mean that the pump is defective.  I would have them look in the motor well to the starboard side that is where this fresh water pump is located.

    I have a 2015 SD 2400 Sundeck.  Warranty just ended and things are starting to go.  The latest is that my fresh water pump is not working.  Is there a fuse or breaker for the pump?  Switch seems to be working as the indicator light is on, but I do not hear anything when it is switched on and nothing happens when I try to run the sink or back shower head.  I suspect the pump is bad.  Would the pump be located in the motor well on this model as well?  I just had to replace the relays under the dash due to badly oxidized posts.  I cover it when not in use and it is on a lift, surprised that things are failing already.  Anyway, if you can help point me in the right direction I can ensure that I am getting power to the pump and replace if necessary.  Thanks

    Similarly, I have a 2003 Fundeck 232 OB.  I cannot find the fresh water pump.  When I look starboard from inside the battery compartment, I see a large white plastic tank with the input hose and shower hose heading to the top of the tank.  I can't see the pump anywhere.  Can anyone give me advice on where to find/how to access/replace it?  I've looked in all the accesses I know about, but not having any luck.

    Many thanks.

    Location I can't say due to having a different model, but I've noticed a lot of more recent boats have a handheld "shower" or wash nozzle on a hose plumbed to their freshwater tanks (don't know if newer Hurricanes have these). I only have a little sink sprayer. I replaced my dead (probably wasn't winterized and froze at some point) pump with a slightly weaker one, which is OK for the sink, but now I'm thinking I'd like one of the handheld nozzles on a hose. 18 gallons freshwater tank would be sufficient for a little hosing off of a few occupants. But the new pump is not nearly up to that task. So all that's just to say that if you think you might want to upgrade your water system, consider replacing a dead pump with something with more power.
