    Here are the highlights of changes I'll make:

    1. Add custom L-shaped enzo sacs (replace stock piggyback rear bag).
    2. Add additional fill pump to each rear side (so two pumps filling each bag).
    3. Add xLink pump (reversible) to shorten the time to change sides. Of the 5 in the family, I'm the only regular-side rider...
    4. Add dedicated drain pumps to the enzo sacs (current setup is that the bag drains down into the hard tank).
    5. Re-route drain and vent lines to the opposite side of the boat to prevent passive draining.
    6. Add check valves to rear fill lines to prevent passive draining.
    7. Front setup is going to be left alone, except that I'll T the drains and vents so that I can use the newly vacant thru-hull for the drains from step 4, and not have to drill any more holes in the boat.

    haha, I did it on my LSV and didn't have any issues, but if I can get away with not doing it, I'll take that route and thanks again for the continued help with the wiring and all of my other questions regarding these mods

    I got nervous when I looked out the window because the boat looked taller than our expedition, which fits in the garage with 3" to spare so I got Peggy to help me take the tower down (which is spring assisted so I just needed a spotter). But I took a 4 ft level and laid it across the windshield and the then high point of the tower and they both measured 6' 10". Whew! I upgraded the axles so they weren't sure how much this would add to the overall height.
