View Full Version : Bertha Ballast: 3 Bag System

The right side rear bag in my Mobius LSV gravity will not drain completely; it keeps 3-5 gallons in the bag. Any suggestions?

Also, the caps on the bags are very loose and won't turn on tightly. Is this normal (for over flow maybe)?

My owner’s manual talks to the hippo system, any chance I can get some documentation on the Bertha 3 Bag System?

I always have a gallon or so that won't drain from the front bag in my mobius. From looking at it I can only figure that the way it's designed it will never be able to drain all of the water. After a weekend of boating, I always make it a point to remove the bag and let it hang until it's totally dry.

I think that is a common problem. Only advise I got was to drain and bilge when on a steep incline (such as the boat ramp). Otherwise the last bit of water won't get back to the pumps to get sucked out.

I hate that i always get water in the front ski locker outside of the bag... :(
