    I get the fogging oil at my local Ace Hardware. Sta-bil can be found at most auto parts store, or even Walmart.
    I don't shrink wrap, I put them in the garage.

    Winterize,,,,,,


    Nope not here in South Texas.

    Best bet is fog it,, Stabil the fuel,, Full tank if left outside, and use the RV antifreeze in the water jackets,,

    I think shrink wrap would tend to seal in moisture and promote corrosion

    Best to keep it in a heated enviroment all winter.

    OR just send it down to me I can run it for you during your winter months

    Is antifreeze nessesary with this ski? It hasnt been in the water in a while and there should be no water in the engine at all. Started it the other day for about 10 seconds with no signs of water in the engine

    Ok. So I did the foging oil and fuel stabilizer and that stuff is done. What about greasing stuff? It says in the polaris winterizing tips thing i found here that things need to be greased.

    Is it nessecary? Also What should I use to spray the engine down with? Anything like wd40 ok? Or what works best?

    Alot of folks would recommend Fluid Film for corrosion protection.

    I wouldn't wrap your unit, as it needs air circulation right?
