I just bought a 1999 Classic. The BCB store says it is a, Control Valve Actuator and come with a 12′ cable. It is located on the lower, inside starboard side, next to the driver seat. It has has a lever that current points to Empty. It can be moved to, Auto.
Can someone explain what its purpose is and how to use it. Thanks!
That valve is to regulate water in your livewell. Leave it on empty until you’re ready to fill it, then switch it over to auto which will close it, keeping the water in the livewell. Turn back to empty when you want to drain the livewell. Not sure if yours has a pump out livewell option but that shoots the water out of the livewell too. There are other posts on here regarding livewell operation as well. Hope this helps.
Here is information for you on the livewells and operation. You can google “flow-rite” and see the parts of the livewell system and what does what.
BassCat Livewell System Explanation
AUTO – OFF-PLANE
Once the first fish is caught, simply place the rotary actuator in the “AUTO” position, turn on the aerator pump and forget it. With the boat off plane, fresh water will be constantly blended with recirculated livewell water. This ensures a properly filled and freshened livewell at all times and that any ammonia laden used water is expelled through the overflow.
AUTO – ON-PLANE
When the boat is placed on plane, the control valve will automatically close the transom port to prevent water loss and the aerator pump is automatically diverted to closed recirculation duty. When the next fishing spot is reached and the boat is brought off plane, the control valve automatically opens the transom port to again allow fresh oxygenated water to be added to the livewell. Therefore, any water that was lost through the overflow while running from spot to spot is automatically made up without any operator assistance.
EMPTY – ON/OFF-PLANE
The “EMPTY” position is, of course, used for draining the livewell. It is, however, much more than just an open drain position. When placed in the “EMPTY” position, the control valve allows water to exit the transom drain, but not enter. This check feature is most appreciated by the tournament angler, who in the wee hours of the morning, does not have to remember to close a livewell drain prior to launching as the control is already in the “EMPTY” position. Water will automatically be prevented from entering the livewell as the boat is backed into the water. No more blast-offs with hundreds of pounds of unwanted water in the livewell.
Thanks guys, very much appreciated and thanks @JEH for the detailed explanation.
