2017 XT23 Ballast Timers

I have a new XT23. Can anyone help me with the fill/empty times, so I can adjust the times in settings.

You can change all of the timers on the screen in the settings.

Yes sir, I understand that. I am asking if anyone would share their fill/empty times. Thank you for your quick response. That's why I like forums......

I think my middle Ballast is 5 and Half minutes and my rear is around 7. But that is on an X23.

Aric make a great point. Set it at 10 minutes, and set a watch then you will know for sure.

IIRC these are very similar to the XT23, maybe slightly less than that for the rear. I think it's like 5:30 and 6:30. There is no harm in running over.

Times aren't always the same though. Engine off, engine on, idle, at speed, etc.

If the empty time was too long could it not damage the impeller from spinning with no water?

Mine were under from the factory, but due to the break in requirements it's tough to set the timers until you get 10-20hrs on the boat. The pumps fill at different speeds with the engine off, on, forward idle vs neutral or at a couple MPH's. I'd set them at 10min, vary your RPM's and all per the manual and then once the engine gets broken in, set the timers based on how you will fill. for right now, your bags MIGHT not be fully full. We will fill in Forward Idle. I have 9hrs on mine and plan to finalize the timers closer to 20hrs to make sure she is broken in properly.

HTH's.

If like our boat once the timers are done, and the ballast is not full, you can press the separate overide fill ballast switches and it adds another 30 sec fill then turns off again. You can do this until there is water flowing from the overflow vents then add that time to your settings.
