can anyone tell me if I can just connect the pump wires to a 12volt battery to test it to see if the cartridge is gone of something in the wiring in the boat .

You probably can. I just changed my recirc pump in my livewell and before I hard wired it I just touched the 2 wires from the boat to the cartridge wires and hit the switch to make sure it was working.

I changed the livewell and recirc pump within a short time period as well. The livewell pump was weak but the recirc pump I believe froze because it was cracked and water was leaking into my boat when I used the livewell and it went over the recirc pump. I think the recirc pump does not drain so if there is water in it then I believe it will freeze since I have to store my boat outside. I have to figure out how to drain the recirc or winterize it with maybe RV antifreeze.
