We have a 2007 LSV & were surfing today, had both rear bags full as well as the center ski locker bag. Went to drain all bags, rear bags emptied quickly as usual, center bag wouldn't empty. Motor for center bag still works for filling, just not draining. Had to drain using bilge pump. Checked fuses and they looked good? Any thoughts.

If you still have the factory gravity III ballast then the fill pump is separate from the drain pump. The drain pump for that bag is located near the fitting at the bottom rear of the center ballast bag. Check to see if that pump is running. There aren't any sprinkler valves or anything like that on the drain side of the factory ballast system so if it's not emptying then it's likely to be a failed or pump or wiring/switch/fuse.

I appreciate the reply. Going to take it to the dealer tomorrow and have them look at it. The dealer upgraded the ballast system for the previous owners. Usually empties quick, just not today.
