Hey everyone, FIRST POST so take it easy on me....I Recently purchased an 07 enzo sv230 and it has issues with the ballast system working intermittently. I was told its a common issue and there is some sort of valving system off the two pumps to give you the option of filling the four ballast tanks individually. Also the blower is working intermittently, although the switch and blower have been replaced. The mechanic who sold me the boat under consignment said the previous owner would not give him enough time to dig deep enough to find the underlying issuse ALTHOUGH he said it looked like the wiring had been messed with by the previous owner. I did notice that when i turn on the second ballast fill switch up from the bottom that all of my gauges turn off then back on, this clearly is not right and i need someone to diagnose exactly where the source of the problem is.

Believe your boat has 4 tanks, two fill pumps, four drain pumps and 4 sprinkler valves at the back to control which tank is being filled.  My guess is that you might have bad sprinkler valves or a pump that is stuck. Can you hear them run?

We have an 08 Enzo and replaced the tanks with 4 bags and removed the sprinkler valves. (ended up reusing one so I could share on fill pump for both under seat bags).

You may want to consider replacing the hard tanks with enzo bags and eliminating the sprinkler valves.  You can use the existing fill pumps to both fill and drain. -Although we retained the drain pumps for our system. We used the existing wiring and switches.

You are welcome to come look at our boat and perhaps some of the wiring is the same. We are in Hood River, OR and own a van up-fit supplies company.  My contact info is at DIYvan.com

Here's a thread our our boat projects: http://www.centurioncrew.com/index.php?/forums/topic/11066-2008-enzo-sv230-projects/

All the best,

Hein

i appreciate the response and i will probably be taking the sprinkler valves out eventually although i believe i have more of a wiring issue at this point because my ballast switches are affecting my power to my other gauges including but not limited to the perfect pass, speedo, rpms... ONE switch in general will briefly turn power off to other component which leads me to believe its something to do with the wiring harness. I could be wrong,  i will continue to research and pick away at this but any guidance is greatly appreciated :)  Hein i like the work you have done to your boat it looks like you really have that wake dialed in! im going from a 2000 21ft centurion elite v. Big step up for me!

There are two relays under the dash that control the pumps and valves. There are some diodes attached to the terminals.  I'd start looking there.  If there are shorts or stuck pumps then that could create a temporary voltage drop that could effect the gauges.

Thanks a lot Hein I will start from there when I get the time (working 12 hour night shift currently). Do you ever do any boating on the Columbia? I'm about 7 miles from Crescent bar. i'll report back after checking those locations. I was considering rewiring all of the wiring to the pump using something similar to this.... https://www.wakemakers.com/wakemakers-plug-and-wake-16-complete-wiring-harness.html
