    Just purchased a 2005 320 DA and I have a button on my console that has a rectangular box with waves going across inside the box. I have no idea what it turns on. It is live as when I press it I can hear a click and my button lights up? The button is just above my acc2 button.

    See the picture! What does it operate? :huh:

    I believe it is used to turn on the water system on some models. The switch pads are universal for many Sundancer models. In your case, the water system is turned on the DC distribution panel in the cabin.

    I just checked the manual for my 04' 340 and it says it's for the "Water System". I haven't pushed it yet cause the water system works without it being pushed.:huh:

    What I meant to say is, this button doesn't do anything on a 320DA. This button may be used to turn the water system on some of the Sea Ray boat line.

    My 300DA uses the same helm switch panel(s), there are some functions (touch pads) that are unused because they are controlled elsewhere.

    Sorry for the confusion...

    That little button activates your water pump.

    That's the automatic debit button that is connected to your checking account. On second thought, though, I think they are ALL connected....

    This button controls how much the water sloshes around inside the fresh water tank.

    Ok so i was JUST about to ask the same question until I found this old thread. I'm sorry but what is the final answer.........phone a friend if you have too??? I have a 2007 340 DA. Does this "Water System" button do anything? I just want to be sure. On my 300 and not this 340.........I don't think it does???

    On my friend's '05 340DA that button does nothing because he has a switch in the cabin panel. Probably the same with your boat. As was touched on earlier, these panels were used on many different model Sport Cruisers and not all buttons apply to every boat.

    You could wire your Margarita blender to it. Just a thought. :smt043:smt043:smt043
