    I'm certainly hoping to make an upgrade to the 2013

Is that right? Thanks
    Correct me if I am wrong, but shouldn't the check valve only be on the vent line and not the drain line. If not, there is a slight chance that the drain pump would just keep circulating the water, because of the loop below the thru-hull fitting.

    check valve should be between the vent port on the bag and the wye or T ( i use a T) fitting. There should be nothing but hose between the wye and the thru-hull on the side of the boat.

    I understand your point, but wouldn't that set up lead me back to the original problem of air entering the bag thru the drain line when I'm towing the boat on the trailer?

    King, as long as you have a vent properly installed, it doesn't matter if you get air in the bag. When it's filling with water, the air will get pushed out the vent line.

    I now have the problem that the water level in the bag gets above the vent line before all of the air can be pushed out. I read somewhere that I'm not the only one with this issue. To fix it I removed the vent line and plugged up that hole again. I then installed the check valve on the drain line just before it exits the boat. Problem solved,no more air in my bag.
