    RXP taking on water

    I have a 2006 RXP and it is taking on water, I don't understand I guess how the stock pick ups work that is to drain the water out. I looked on Riva and it looks like the hose to the pick up is hooked to the drain plugs and this is where the confusion has come, how do you put the drain plugs in and the water is to drain am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for the help

    those siphon tubes hook to the drain plug but pull water out using the vacuum of the water coming out of the pump and suck the water out. the just happen to hook back up to the drain plug probably because its one of the rear most, lowest parts of the ski, where water will naturally end up if you got some in the hull

    and more then likely thats not where your water is coming IN the hull from! its possible if your siphon tubes are broken that water can come in the hull when the boat is stopped though.... ask me how i know hahaha

    The siphon tube is hooked up to the pump, Ass YOU move forward it sucks up the water in the hull. This is the stock configuration of my 2004 RXP. I am sure it's no different than a 2006 RXP? The RXP drain plugs is a stand alone Dummy proof for most members like bigdaddy RXP and then some. There is a white "Ball inside the drain plug. The purpose of this "white Ball" is to plug the hole if some operators like bigddady forgets to close the drain plug before launch of the ski. The system works like this... the greater preasure inbetween the ski and body of water pushes the ball in both direction. For example: Let say you forgot to put your drain plug closed in the RXP. Once you launch it in the water, the presure of the water will push on the ball plugging it up. Now try this, open up your drain plug and put the ski in a trailer and flood the ski with water. the ball will move in the opposite direction because the preassure is inside your ski That concludes our class for "Drain Plugs 101". Thank You and have a nice day
