    My front live well will not work, I have a 2 position switch and two control values, anyone know the orientation of these? My rear well works fine it's just the front

      You will need to trouble shoot with a local Hurricane Dealer.  This line could be pinched or have a pea trap causing this to lose prime.  To locate a Dealer please visit our website at and place your zip code in the upper right hand corner for a list of Dealers in your area

      Jumping Jeepers - I had the same issue, front live well not filling and confusion over switch settings.  Found relief by dumping a bucket of water into front live well to obtain a "prime".  Seems to work.  Did not know realize the well empties when in fill position running on plane - will need to test that one.  Also, the magic bullet seems to be leave in Recirculate and the well holds water regardless of boat activity - will need to test that too.  Great description - this live well thing has truly been frustrating

      Thanks for the comments, got to dig deeper to see what's up with my front won't prime backing up or filling it with a hose.

      check to see if there is slack in the line going to the front live well - this could be causing a p trap in the line
