    Drain plugs...

    The two plugs that let access water out when you open them up, my right side isn't draining any water out like the right side. I was washing the hull out and tilted it back to drain the water out and it's only coming out the left side.

    I noticed the hoses are connected to it. Is it plugged or something?

    The one way valve/ball gets stuck, you can replace the whole fitting, ball, screw cap and all.
    I think I have some new ones in the package if I can find them if you need some.

    Just remove it by taking the two screws out. Clean and reinstall. 5 min job. There's no hoses connected to them.

    Never mind, i wiggled the little hose connected to it inside the hull and it started flowing, musta been pinched or something.

    if you have the plugs that dont have srews on the outside, just a square hole on the inside - dont screw with them much.

    I had similar issues with mine and fiddled with it too much. thing loosened up and had to take it to dealer for fix. it was the one behind the iBR, naturally, I wasn't gonna mess with it, after hearing horror stories aboout the bolts for the motor stripping. 200$ later, the thing is in right again and all the bolts for the iBR still tighten up.

    ...just a heads-up...

    Same thing happened to me, but instead of removing IBR motor. I inserted a long thin screwdriver in the rear and put back the hose on the other end of screwdriver. That way I was able to push the hose back on the fitting. Try this trick before messing with IBR if hose gets unplugged.
