R222 -Livewell & Plug help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I recently purchased my boat about a week ago, but the dealer did not have any plugs for my live well or front storage coolers. They’ve had to order them, but I want to try and get a few overnighted if possible. Is there a specific place I need to go to find out which size my live well works with?

 And also, I cannot seem to get the live well to work. I turn on the electronics and push in the button, and make sure the valve is turned, but no saltwater flows.  Am I missing something?

I’m a newbie, first boat purchase, so forgive me for the rookie questions. Thanks for your help.

Open the seacock. Seems Robalo's are shipped with the seacock closed and dealers never seem to open them.

Handle position indicates the operational status of the valve...

It may be a long reach, but the seacock should be accessible through the raised transom seat lid...

Good luck!

You're a genius!  Really appreciate you taking the time to show me this.  I'll do it first thing in the AM when I take the cover off in hopes of getting back on the water here in Destin!  Thanks again!
