I currently own a 2000 vlx w/ the single mls in the ski locker. It has a fill pump and a drain pump (for those of you not familiar with the setup.

I own three other pumps for filling the other bags in the ski locker and up in the bow. I think I can automate the system somewhat, without much time or cash outflow. In a nutshell, I was going to tee of the fill pump and fill all three bags. For draining, I would leave the MLS center sac as is and add a pump in the bilge (using gravity to prime) and tee into the bilge line. I was going to use several ball valves to control the flow of water. Please look at the diagrams below and let me have some feedback. I included two meathods to fill because I do not know if gravity will allow me to use meathod 1. I hope the diagram is self explanitory.

Many who have posted here have ended up going with a self priming pump since gravity does not ensure water to the pumps. I would certainly go with the 2nd option here. Seem to me your fill and drain times would be faster.
