I have the same boat and also had the alarm going off. On my boat it turned out to be water under the aft bed. The water was from the A/C unit. The drain pan was not draining properly and water was spilling over the pan in into the forward bilge. When ever we tried to get up on plain the alarm would go off. The only way to get the water out was with a hand pump. The is no switch to turn on the forward pump it's automatic and when it turns on the alarm goes off.
The the problem with the drain pan was that the drain hose get an air lock so I ended up putting a "T" fitting in the middle of the run to act as a vent and have not had any water in the forward bilge since.
Also the water might be coming from the water tank. I noticed on my boat that when i'm filling the water tank and the water starts to over flow back out the fill hole, When I turn off the hose I notice the water level in the fill hole start to go down eventhough nothing is turned on. I never really checked this this out, I just stopped filling up all the way.
You don't want any water sitting in the forward bilge or it will start to smell.
Just roll the mattress in half toward the straboard side of the boat. Lift the panel under the mattress a little and slide it under the rolled mattress and you will see your water tank in the middle of the boat. In the middle of the water tank there are access ports to get the water our of the bilge. Use a rag after pumping the water out to dry things up.
Sorry I have no info on the switches, mine work just fine. Try contacting Doral direct. If there is no dealer near by they will sell it to you directly. Before they got a new dealer near me, I worked directly with the factory and made several purchases.
