Wakemaker bags in rear lockers

Recommended Posts


Hi Folks -

I just received the 750 kit for the PnP rear lockers form my brand new 2013 23 LSV. I have a couple of questions:

How does the dash display deal with the added volume? Does it:

1) simply not know and only indicate the level in the fixed tanks

2) allow you to change the configuration somewhere in setup so it is accurate?

3 do something else...

On the install, Wakemakers sent a lot of hardware, and either I don't fully understand the installation, or there are some extra fittings. I am assuming the 90-degree fittings are for the top of the bag, but I'd love clarification from someone who has done this.

thanks tons,

Im gonna give you my experience with the bags..

I also purchased the 750's and I have a 2013 247 (MFG'd late in the year so I have the newer PnP system)

It is really simple.

- Take the plugs out of the existing 3 hoses in each locker

- lay the bag out

- hook up the connectors

- open the main valve switch on the fill hose (its pretty obvious its a big black lever)

- put the fancy grey cap marked Air Release in the top hole in each bag..(use this to bleed the bags if u have too much air)

Now realize that you are gonna have to get your a** in the locker to get the bags and connectors to fit perfect...its quite a workout...my feet were up in the air and the guys at my marina were laughing so hard.

As far as how we "use the bags" I tell the boat to fill all....we open the lockers and just eyeball them ...I don't trust the system to stop...(I popped off a hose once) and once they are full I turn off that side or both or whatever...

I am sure there is a better way...but we just do it "manual"

Disclaimer...i own almost zero tools...and I am probably the least handy person I know....if I can install these bags..anyone can.

also, call Wakemakers..they are so nice and will walk you through it...they did for me

To answer your question the dash display does not know and only indicates the level in the original hard tanks.
