  • 2007 X2 Replace Ballast Timers with relays

    I added 2 rear ballast bags and 1 front ballast bag from Wavemakers this spring. I ordered the Jasco timers and they have been an issue all summer. I am looking to replace the timers with relays instead as all the bags use the boat overflows. I have seen some older posts on doing this but i was hoping someone who has done this could share the parts ordered and the wiring diagram to wire it to the existing switches.

    I was also looking at adding a master switch to turn the ballast pumps all off so they do not run and kill the battery.

    Any help is appreciated

    I can reprogram all of your timers so that they actually work correctly. There is a long thread about it in my signature, but long-story-short is that I can flash a new firmware to the timers that eliminates all of the logic that makes them stop unexpectedly and allows you to set them for any amount of run-time that you need. I've fixed hundreds of timers and everyone has been happy with the results.

      Erik did this programming for me this spring and they have worked flawlessly all summer long. Some of the best money I have spent on our boat period. Thanks Erik!

        tr6coug did mine over 10 years ago and system has been flawless. best money spent. I also bought the new timers and could never get them to set right. I told tr6coug he could have them.

        good luck.

          Send it to tr6coug. Mine are flawless with 5 years on them. tr6coug does great work!
