Some other tips:
1. While bringing the boat out of storage, take out the impellers, coat them and housing with petroleum jelly and re install. This will help lubricate them until they prime with water. This will also help with any damage that occur with a dry run.
2. Check all fittings for leaks or incomplete connections. I had an issue with the center bag filling up with air and having a hard time priming. Turns out the hose had a small crack and was sucking in air and filling up the bag with air bubbles. Took it to dealer and they "tried" to fix it by taking a piece of copper pipe and joint the 2 pieces of pipe together where the crack was. This made it worse because there were no barb fittings on the pipe and the seal allowed even more air to be sucked in. I replaced it with a 1" PVC barb fitting and its 100% sealed now.
3. Check your motor if your getting blink codes. If you check my other thread you can see that water entered the motor and really corroded everything. I was able to get it running by using my dremel to remove as much as I could but it still runs rough. Will be trying a Johnson pump to replace it. Not sure if it was a dealer issue or bad OEM design.
