Perfect sense when I look at the wiring diagram. Thank you so much for the insight.

You got it.
Here is a simplified wiring diagram of a common bilge pump set up.
bilgePump547x301.gif

The output of both switches (Auto/Off/Run switch and Float switch) are connected to the pump's positive wire/terminal.
So if either one is activated, the other will see power too. Hence the reason the "RUN" light works.

Your intuition exceeded my ability to describe. Yes. Auto/Run/off. So the Run terminal gets power in two instances. When momentarily pressed to run, and when the float switch kicks it on?

Hold on a sec.
Do you have two switches, a master On/Off and a manual switch?
If so, hook the positive lead to the load side of the Manual switch.
Ground, once again goes to any convenient ground buss.

I mean the Auto/Off/Run toggle switch.
You want to put the Positive lead off the counter to the RUN terminal. The ground just goes to a convenient ground buss.
If all else fails, follow the Run LED leads, and attach the Counter leads to the same place. It should be apparent which one is the ground lead (black or yellow).

This is assuming that the new counter is in the same general location as the Auto/Off/Run switch.

We were thinking the same. But I bought the counter only. When you saw running to the switch, do you mean the float switch, or an inline relay since there is an on/off, a manual switch, and then float switch activation. I can run to float switch, it is a threading hassle to do a neat job. But I get the reliability.

Jimmy:

I replaced the SL 1000 with the Tigress and it covered the hole. But, if you wanted to make a cover plate that would be easy as well. Here is my photo essay showing the install and the cut outs.

Hi All,
I have my bright new shiny Lofrans Tigres on my living room floor just admiring it :P I'm wondering if those of you who have already replaced a SL can share advice on what do do with the hole left by the SL? Did you have to have fiberglass work done to close the hold and find new Teak Boards for the bowsprit? or did the Tigres cover the old hole completely left by the removal of the SL?
Thanks for any word of advice before I call my local shipyard.
