    Whats your temps get down to? Are they garaged?

    rv antifreeze through motor (if it gets below 30) if stored in garage and covered, just make sure you blow the water out real good before storing it and you wont need antifreeze
    fogging oil in motor
    battery on tender
    fresh plugs
    stabile in tank (i drain mine)
    wash/wax
    cover if outside

    Welcome to GH!

    got mine winterized today, dealer did all that stuff and he also sprayed something all over the engine/ pump. It seems to be something like fluid film

    Once you add Stabil to your gas, run it for a few minutes so the Stabil gets into your carbs.

    Sorry I meant to say antifreeze in the engine so the block doesn't crack.

    A good way to do it is get a bucket and install a valve and 5 foot of garden hose to it, then set higher than your engine (on top of a 6 foot ladder) hook up to the flush adapter with the valve closed. Start ski then turn on valve.... wait till you see the rv antifreeze coming out the back... lower the front of the ski as far as you can to see it come out of the front pissers.... turn valve off before turning engine off
