2008 X30 question...ballast gauges

weird question, maybe. I noticed on the 2007 X30, the ballast gauges are located by the throttle and there are actually gauges above the switches.

I just bought a 2008 X30 (haven't actually gotten it in the water or even tested it out) and noticed that the ballast switches are in the same spot but NO gauges. Are the "gauges" for the ballast on the digital display now or elsewhere? sorry for the dumb question...

DavidF if you plan on putting extra bags in, or if they are installed already you will want/need to reset the Jabsco pump timers to increase the time; I was told by Jabsco and Wakemakers that in 2008 all pumps were able to be increased to a max 20 minute run time. I've atttached a few links for you to see what to do (if you want to).

https://www.wakemakers.com/mastercra...er-module.html - this video is a short clip on what to do - you won't need new AI modules, again as per WM and Jabsco's information.

And when you have pulled out your last hair doing the unplug pump, cycle switch, stand on your head, turn clockwise 6 times game and still can't get them to work look up the thread in ballast section for timers that actually work.
