Looking for 2016 Owner to Test Product

We have a new kit to add AutoVent functionality that is optional on 2017 models to the 2016 boats, but I would like to get a set in the hands of someone with a 2016 that his currently using their boat to ensure the installation and functionality work as expected. Please contact me if you are interested in adding this functionality to your factory Plug-and-Play system.

Thanks,

Jason

Sure, I could be test mule.   PM or does this suffice?  How hard is the install - that may be the real question as I already have several projects I want to wrap up before the season really gets started here (including a plumbed in bow bag that I grabbed during your black friday sales :))

Any interest in a 2017 that does not have the autovent option?

Not sure how many test subjects you need, but I would be game as well.

Me too, depending on how many you need.  FYI I'm using your custom bags.

Thanks guys, do me a favor and either email us ([email protected]) or send me a PM with your address and I will get some kits out to you guys. Install is quick, loosen the hose clamp on the factory vent thru-hull, remove the stock hose, install our adapter, reconnect the factory hose to the open fitting on our adapter, and tighten the hose clamp. It takes us about 5 minutes, especially with the new hose that is used for the vent on '16+ boats.

I must have missed a memo since I didn't make it to the boat show this year. Anybody know where there is a picture or description of "Auto Vent" out there? My google/search skills aren't working very well right now.

This sounds suspiciously like something I rigged up and shared here on TMC last year:

I have it in my 2017 lsv, I believe Auto vent is just a vent line for overflow.  I have not even had a chance to install my bags yet, lockers have not even been opened.   I can take a quick peek tomorrow if you would like.

Yep, it's just a shared vent connection for the bags so that they have a vent/overflow. We've all shared feedback with Malibu that this should have been a part of the Plug-and-Play system for a long time, they just finally made it an option.
