Additional soft bags won't fill

New owner of a 2015 X10. He hard tanks fill, but the soft ones don't. In another thread I saw something about a "connection bridge" but I don't know what that is or where to find it???

Check your ballast fill timers...... and I am guessing the rear ballast timers should be 8 mins plus. If they are say 4 mins you will only fill the tanks and not the bags.

Connection bridge is likely someone's term for a hose that connects from the top (vent) of the hard tank to the bottom of the ballast bag where the water enters the bag after the tank is full. If this hose is not connected, and after the tank is full, the additional water will just flow into the bilge area and not into the bags. Are the bilge pumps running when filling the ballast?

Totally agree with all of this, my guess is timers as well. Whenever a software update is performed or dealer resets the screen, timers need to be set for PnP. Here is this trusty chart that floats around TT. Whoever made this has helped me with so many things so many times!
