During the winter, I did a little work to my ballast system. I have a 2002 X30 with the stock Jabsco Ballast Puppy pumps. Here is what I did.

1) changed all the outlet hoses from 3/4" ID to 1" ID
2) had a custom ballast sac made from Fly High for the front ski looker
3) changed to the new (yellow) impellers in all 3 pumps

Now, I just can not seem to get the front sac's pump to prime or fill the sac. I hear the pump come on.

I was wondering if inverting the Port and Middle pumps (since they are installed upside down) would have any effect on the pumps ability to prime. The Port pump take a while to prime while the Starboard pump primes right way. The Starboard pump is installed opposite direction of the other 2 pumps. My guess is MasterCraft did this because of space issues.

Any suggestions would be great. Did I screw things up by going to the 1" ID hose? I talked to several dealers that told me MC went to 1" ID outlet hose in 2005 to match the 1" ID inlet hose.

Not totally sure, I had a problem with my starboard pump filling today. I just switched to the yellow impellers. I finally got it to prime while filling all three tanks at the same time. Not sure if it will help, but give it a try. Play around with it a bit, fill, empty, fill, fill, etc.......Good should be fine once you get it to prime once. Coming out of winterizationd the lines should be pretty much bone dry......
