    Need Pics of Power Pole reservoir mounting in Sportsman

    I have a Sportsman 17 and would like some ideas for mounting the pump/reservoir for Power Poles. If you have one or two poles, could you please post pics? Thanks in advance.

    My starting battery is turned sideways and the pump is mounted beside it on a piece of aluminum. No pics... sorry.

    TheSilverFox, is that a dealer install or did you install it?

    Dealer install. I’m working 3rd. I can try to get pics later this week. I’m thinking there is room for 2 pumps... considering a second pole. Best I remember they riveted a plate to mount the pump to.

    This is also on a Sportsman 19... but from what I remember, the 17,18 and 18 are the same from the seats back in size.

    How big of batteries have you guys been able to squeeze in these sporstman models. I’m picking up my sportsman 19 tomorrow. Dealer told me all I could get is a 24 series cranking and two 27 series trolling. Said that’s as big as I can fit in there

    They took a plate of thin aluminum and made an L shape out of it. Riveting the bottom of it under a battery so they would have a vertical surface to mount the pump and reservoir between the batteries and transom.

    image uploading on here seems to be a pain without an image hosting site

    This is what I did. Just got a thin piece of aluminum from the hardware store and made and L out of it. Gave me a 'false bottom' so I was able to mount it in the section that only has the bilge and livewell pump. This was on a 2011 18 SC.
