Front Ballast

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had trouble with the front ballast draining on its own?

I can fill the tank and after 1 or 2 pulls it is empty again. The water is not going into the bilge area so it must by siphoning out the drain port.

Anyone have a clue?

Sounds like some warranty work for your dealer!

She is there as we speak. Just wondering if it was a common problem?

Might just be draining back out the fill line. Others have suggested the line needs a loop in it above the water line, or an inline check valve.

Most likely draining out the fill line, there should be a high loop in the line to keep it from draining out, the loop should be higher than the water line.

Is the front tank a hard tank, or a sack?

It is the new 350 gallon hard tank. The dealer indicated that they have seen this problem more than just a few times. I'll be interested to see how they fix it.
