2017 21 VLX Bow Plug N Play

Recommended Posts

mxskier7

So although most people have been able to surf with the stock ballast tanks without the rope, it is time to add the 550's.   I assume when I order the pair from Wakemakers that it comes ready to be installed?   I have the Plug N Play on my boat so will it literally just plug right in?

 

Also, if I add a bow bag, does the bow also have a Plug n Play system to tap into or do I need to manually fill and drain the bag?    And does the bag just sit right on the top of the seating area?

Thanks in advance!

It doesn’t have plug n play in the bow, unless you’ve found something out I don’t know.

Yep, your plug n play bags from wakemakers will plug right in, nothing else required.  

No plug n play bag for the bow, although you will want to make sure you run a bow bag.  You will just have to do it the old fashion way and throw a pump over the side.

You could install a dedicated pump to fill a bow bag. I did this in a couple of my boats. If you’re gonna regularly run a bow sack this is the ideal set up. Throwing a pump over board gets old fast. 

This was on my 2016 23 LSV so this setup won’t necessarily work on the 21 VLX; you’d have to find a different place to route the water hose to. Perhaps the walkthrough.

If its just my wife and I on board and I don't go crazy with the wedge 250# of leadwake bags in the bow do wonders. If you have people on the boat make 'em sit in the bow.
