Starting with the basics - be sure the valve is open if you have one between the pump and hull.

There may be some debris in the other one thats keeping it from spinning and causing a fuse to trip.

The pump is not working either the fill or drain just on this ballast. Fuse? How to you access drain pump on this ballast? Is there a manual anywhere i can buy showing me the true set up of my boat?

Same thing happened to me with just one of my tanks, hit the switch and the breaker would trip immediately, not sure on an 05 but the pumps on my 06 are located on either side of the V-drive, i took the pump giving me troubles apart an noticed it had a hair line crack in it where the water could seep in which would short and trip the breaker. Called the dealer and they sent me out a re-placement on the bus on warranty Thumbup.gif , the stock pump on mine was brand Piranha. Hope this helps.
