I became so sick of the water flowing back into the bilge from the stock bilge pump (Rule) that I decided to upgrade to a high quality Whale diaphragm pump. I kept the Rule but ripped out the check valve that it was installed with. Check valves a no no, especially with centrifugal pumps (Rule). The Whale has an integrated check valve but if it fails the Rule pump is there to cover. (btw - the check valve that came with the Rule never worked anyway).

Here are the pics:

Nice job. I may go that route too.

What is the yellow and black device in the last photo.
I think you mean the pump photo not the last pic which is your standard SeaDog bilge switch. The pump is remote from the strainer and sensor.

Here is a better description of the Whale Gulper IC

fuse is in the last picture, to the right, with the top off
my best guess
RDW
Right, that is actually the fuse for the entertainment radio. Why they did not simply use the fuse system in the + bus bar is beyond me. That is on my list to fix.
