Those lines run under the passenger console and driver console then come up thru the stock holes and plug into the bow sac... I then drilled another hole next to the ski locker vent and installed a second vent for the bow sac.... I didnt want to add any switches or more pumps.

    the only negative is you cant fill one or the other, they are either both filled or both empty... But its sounds like you only get about 200lbs in the ski locker so to me that should always be filled anyway.. So for me i will always be riding with them both full unless there are enough people onboard..

    thanks!
    i assume this is one of the newer LSVs with the single line reversable pumps? ie the fill and drain lines are one in the same?

    this is the one I have, i am looking for the original place though. It was an aquarium shop and it was a little cheaper than these:

    im wondering if some inline manual valves after the first "Y" would be handy? i guess would have to be near the bag for access.
    that way you could direct flow if you only wanted to fill one bag.

    I was thinking about a valve system but it would kind of be a pain to to the bow sac ones because the are so far under the dash's.. it maybe be easy to do the ski locker one though..



    here is a pretty small valve with barbs

    here are some t fittings from flow rite with the quick connects. Not sure if you need T or Y.

    I am adding a fourth valve with a new manifold to go direct to the bow sac.with a fourth switch.
