2008 X-2 Ballast Issues
We have a 2008 X-2, stock ballast plus the Fly High kit plumbed in through the overflow valves. We haven't been to our house in over a month, so the boat has been sitting on the lift for that time period. We got in the boat today and it wouldn't turn over, after jumping it with a portable battery charger we got it going. The boat filled the factory tanks and the bags, and we got underway for a quick session. When we went to empty the ballast on our way back to the lift, the ballast switches are flashing immediately after turning them on and the bags are not emptying into the hard tanks, which aren't emptying back into the lake.
I can't hear the impellers turning at all, so I was going to take apart the pumps tomorrow morning and take a look at them all. However, I find it weird that all three pumps canned out at the exact same time. Another idea is that since the boat was dead, maybe our batteries are going, and need to replaced or a good charge and that the system can't create the suction power to pump the water back out. Last option is that something is stuck in the inflow/outflow line, however I'm assuming each tank gets its own in/out line so it would be highly unlikely all three of them clogged at the same time.
I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me a shout as to what it might be.
