Default Lund livewell valve porting

Just got a 99 Pro-V and i am not sure of the valves that run the livewells. Three positions on each, ( fill, drain, recirculate ). If i am wanting to launch my boat and have zero water come in to the wells, which selection should i use? Also, can i keep it in the fill position and not have the water sucked out on a high speed run? Is there a good source that details these valves? Thanks for any advice!

If you check out Lunds website they have a catalog archive section that shows you how their livewells work.

I dont have a Lund but I would say for both of your questions it would be left on the recirculate. Water wont come in and water wont leave as the valves are closed off to the livewell.

If you have the drain plug in the only way water gets out is thru the overflow port.

I just bought a new boat with 6 hours on it and since I am catch and release, I sealed off the livewell for use as more storage. I went to Menards and got a plug for the side "overflow drain out" while running the pump.

The bottom of the livewell has a double O-ringed drain plug that fits nice and snug. Then the water in has the adjuster that also can be closed off and I pulled the positive power line to the switch. No more livewell and all sealed up for use as storage, with the option to use it in 3 minutes if needed.
