    Default 2013 Mobius LSV Winterizing the ballast system

    I just had my winterization done at the dealer (I was too chicken to try it myself the first year with a brand new boat) and they did winterize the ballast system, though I think all that means is they ran some antifreeze thru the pumps/lines.

    my thinking is to park on a steep hill with the bow headed uphill, hit the empty for the front center tank and run it till its empty, pull the rear bags out, hit empty to clear the lines and that should be all that is needed. quess you could also pour some bio-antifreeze down the vent for the front tank to help purge any water out while its emptying.

    I pull the bags out unhook all the lines and blow them out with one of of those high velocity air pumps.

    At the local dealer winterizing the ballast consists of draining the bags, removing them, then hitting drain again.

    There shouldn't be enough water left to hurt anything.

    If you have the means blowing air through the lines then you can do that as well.
