MLS ballast question 05 VLX

Recommended Posts

I picked up a 05 VLX this weekend.  It does have the 4th tank in the bow, but only 3 rocker switches at the helm.  Does the bow fill only after the center tank fills as in a piggy back system?  I thought they were independently controlled, but I guess not.  The boat is winterized, so I can't investigate further until spring.

 

Thanks.

OK I confirmed that All is plumbed up and the center and bow tanks fill and drain off same switch.

Depending on what else you have in the boat, you may have some free switch space for wiring in other pumps.  I didnt ahve that luxury as I had a heater, heated seats and docking lights.

The only free ACC switch I see is for the Perfect pass....why is this on a switch since you enable it on the PP?

Not sure.  Maybe take a pic and post it.

When I had my 05 I remember every time I parked at the cove and listened to music, PP would turn itself on and off and beep like crazy to the point that i would just crawl under dash and unplug it.  I don't think it liked any voltage drop.  The previous owner may have put it on a switch, better solution would've been to put stereo on switch.
