Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
you will need to fill the tank located in the boat. Then use the emergency switch on the engine to fill the tank on the engine. With both tanks full, that will turn off the alarm. If it continues to go off, you have a bad float switch in the engine tank.
