Looking at an 05' LSV with Front Gravity I Ballast - so no rear sacks.

How much would a boat dealer charge to plumb the two rear sacks in?

Or

How much would it cost me for the parts, etc to do it myself?

Difficulty?

ps. Just sold my 02' Outback LS =( Looking for an LSV now.

Dealer - too much!
DIY - less than 1/2 as much as dealer
Difficulty - search the forums and you'll have everything you need to get it done. If you're at all mechanical you can plumb in a couple lines on your existing pump. To add a second pump isn't that much more of a job.

I did this last summer, I did the factory sprinkler system and accumulated parts from other member upgrades. but very doing project took about 6 to 7 hrs once i pulled the floor.

Probably a 500 job if you DIY.

Bought lots of used stuff (manifold b400lb bags etc.)as well as drain pumps and the wirining harness from the dealer and switch plate.

Flo rite has alot of the parts direct , but wakemakers can certainly outfit the whole upgrade for you. You 05 lsv and my 07 OBV are pretty miuch the same boat.
