So yesterday went out for a surf sesh with 2 buddies. Filled up all ballast + 1550lbs of floor bags. Then I noticed my bow bag wasn't filling. Turned off my stereo and I couldn't hear my center pump. Other pumps worked but I reset the breaker in the engine compartment anyways, turned off the batteries for a minute then tried again. I heard the pump kick on and I reset the ballast levels and went surfing. Well it never filled up. So my immediate thought was impeller but then noticed I couldn't hear the pump again. I didn't have time to take apart the rear panel or anything but wanted to see what everyone else thought? I'm going to order 3 new impellers anyways but wanted to see what everyone thought. Thanks!

Sometimes pumps will not run if the voltage drop is too much. Other than that I would say check the impeller. You can also make some temporary power leads to run to the pump to see if there a separate wiring issue.
