    Default Ballast Not Emptying

    I have an '04 LSV with the three bag Bertha Ballast system. When we finish boarding all three bags do not completely empty, they'll have 5-10 gallons of water remaining. The pumps are running but the water is not leaving. I can sometime tip the bags up and they'll drain but usually on the rear bags I have to take them out to empty them.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I also have an 04 lsv and am having the same problem only with the 2 back bags. The front bag works fine. I think the hoses "fill and drain" we reversed on one of the bags. I now marked the fill hose so I know it is always at the top. I'll check it out this weekend and know if this solved the problem.
