[quote=DBrown2;767423]Well to follow up yes from stock tank the overflow line feeds to bottom of bag the top of bag out to overflow fitting out on the hull.

After reading this post I went and installed the 2 400lb fly high sacs one in each of my rear compartment about a month ago. I have been wanting to come on here and say how easy this was. I have a 06 X15 and it took me about an hour total to do it. Thanks for all the information!

I quoted DBrown above because the way he did it (hard tank overflow to bottom of sac then top of sac to the outside of boat) works the best. I even talked to my local dealer prior to putting them in and that's the way they install them for customers. Just my

thanks for the info cutler. seems that way would be easier to drain yet harder to fill. oh well mine are the opposite and work great.

I think this goes back the the, are your hard tanks under the floor or next to the side wall?

I would bet his tanks are under the floor filling them and then the sac that is on top of them works well. You install on the other hand has tanks and bags side by side, right? To completely different installs if you ask me and both of them working well.

Hey ShamrockIV,

Awesome post. I didn't think it would work, but I followed your lead and sure enough, it works beautifully.
One minor issue, (maybe), during the draining of the tanks the hard tank starts "collapsing" what I would consider a significant amount. Has anyone else had this issue?

Is there something I need to change with my setup?
(Hard tank vent hose to fill side on soft tank - top of soft tank hose to original vent pipe...)
Just worried I'm gonna completely collapse the hard tanks.

Thanks, Derek
