    I'm also not sure about a red light turning green during the fill. Maybe that's a feature on the 7" display only on other models? I don't recall seeing any ballast sensor light on my smaller screen. I have autowake as well if it matters.

    I think only the wakemaker bags are self venting.

    In regards to the sensors, my display will tell me I'm 100% filled but the bags are not fully filled. I'm using the default timer setting so what I do is cycle the pumps until I see water come out the side thru-hull. I need to play around with the timers a little more to test my sensors are in fact shutting off the pumps when they sense water and not that I'm simply running short of fill times for the bags. I have G6 ballast and can't recall default settings but want to say it's in the 6 second range or so.

    This is what my vent plugs look like on my 2019 Max. Are you saying these should be different? The one not shaped like a hex is a manual vent plug like I have on my 750 lb fatsac.


    You been able to get behind that best yet.

    Only once so far and with a friend driving while I was yelling for him to adjust speed, smart plate, and surf tab deployment. Didnít get ropeless yet but once I started to feel some push we went into shallower water and it killed the wave. Any time since then has been with wife and she hasnít learned to drive the boat safely enough to tow me and we need to get her a boating license. I did manage to make a nice looking wave with a single 750 lb bag last time out but didnít surf it due to wife freaking out driving while I was trying to get some footage of the wave. Weather been crap for 3 weekends in a row but looks good this weekend so hoping to get a crew together for a day of surfing behind it.

    the plug at the very bottom of you picture looks like the self venting plug that came stock, it had a little paper element inside.

    My wife is almost through the online boat course. She is also framing out about having to drive while I surf. But idc she needs to learn.

    Yep thatís it. It has like 6 little holes in the top and a white diaphragm inside. My rear bags have a couple each in various ports.

    Ah thank you for explaining. It seems strange I will have trapped air in the bag but the self vent doesn't vent beforehand. I guess the paper element or whatever has to see a specific amount of pressure before it releases. I never paid close attention to that hex plug and just figured it was a extra cap for some reason or another. Learn something new in here everyday with our new boat! . Ive just been doing the manual burping procedure on the other vent plug my salesman showed me during the maiden voyage but I suppose he wasn't aware the new boats have the self vent.

    My wife has horrible depth perception, and i finally got her somewhat comfortable. I am also starting to have my 12 y/o daughter pull me ( with moms help) She is doing good, but over corrects the helm and still can't set the boat up when a rider falls. Give your wife plenty of seat time. Make her dock the boat, and dont freak out when she makes a mistake.
