    That's right !! That's why my center hard + IBS are full when only 60% is displayed !! In fact, my tank never drain... But I don't understand where you want to put an other valve...

    The following link is a fix for the center hard tank and IBS draining problem.

    The spring loaded check valve acts as a vacuum breaker.

    Ever find the answer to your question? I'm curious as well.

    So I've got the shopping cart ready and waiting. Can you guys tell me if there is anything else I need for the IBS install in a '13 LSV? I think I've got everything covered. Thanks for all the help!

    I plan on using this plastic spring check valve as long as the threads match when I install an IBS in my new LSV.

    It is available on EBAY and Amazon also.

    on my IBS install, I took the vent line from the infloor tank and cut it about 6" after coming up thru the floor infront of the driver, add a Tee fitting, one side of the T goes to the IBS lower port, the upper port goes to the vent thruhull on the side of the boat, this has a wakemakers inline check valve. On the other side of the T I ran a line up higher than the vent thruhull and added a spring check valve from Ace hardware or from Home depot-had it a few years and just don't remember where it came from. When the ibs is full it will flow out the vent thruhull. when empting the ibs will dang near drain 99%, then when the vacuum pressure hits a certain point the spring check valve will open and let the infloor tank drain about 90-95%, then when im on the ramp pulling the boat out I have my wife hit the empty to finish the job on all 3 bags as there is allways some water left. anyway this is how mine is and it seams to work pretty good-all automated, no valves to mess with. hope this helps, if any questions feel free to ask

    hitboost, not sure where your planning to use the Bosworth valve, other than that your shopping list looks good
