05 xstar ballast sending unit

My starboard side ballast gauge will only come upto half. I was wondering where the access is for the sending unit on the starboard ballast tank so i can check if it is stuck. Thanks!

There should be an access cover under the seat cushion on the starboard side (just behind drivers seat)

There is a calibration screw on the sending unit, it's very sensitive. Best to calibrate it with the boat in the water. Start with the tank empty, calibrate it, then fill the tank all the way and calibrate again.

FWIW, I don't even use my rear hard tanks anymore. (2) 400# sacs in the rear lockers, front KGB plus a 750# sac in the walkway. Wake is great, but I'm going to increase those rear lockers to 720's in the future!
