@tr6coug (and others)


Here's my situation - 2007 x45. I had bakes marine in Seattle put in 2 extra sacs a year ago and they upgraded the controllers to the newer jabsco 18500 0520. I think they did this b/c these can be programmed for longer than the factory? Not sure exactly why in hindsight. I still have the factory original controllers as well.

I now have a situation where my starboard pump will fill but not empty. It's not the pump / impeller - I can plug it into the middle controller and it will empty fine. I also changed the wiring to another switch and that didn't help. I called Jabsco and they are pretty sure it's the controller.

So my situation, I think, is I can replace the newer controller (Jabsco will replace for free) or just have tr6coug reprogram the factor original controller.

Does this sound right? Any other tips for this situation?

Thanks!

If I reprogram the original one you can set it for any amount of time you need. Sounds like the new timer may be bad and if Jabsco will replace it then I would have them do that.

I would very much like to reprogram my ballast timers. MY 2009 X15 has the wires crimped on. The portable programmer would be perfect. Is it available?
