    Winterizing '09 RXP-X What Antifreeze to use?

    Hey guys i'm gonna winterize my '09 RXP-x and i'm just wondering if i should be using plumbers antifreeze or a low toxic Antifreeze? I wasen't sure if it mattered with the external intercooler.

    I use Pink RV antifreeze. Make sure to use extra otherwise it will get diluted to much with the water in side the ski and not be as effective. Usually it only takes like 2 gallons to pump through it but Ill do 3 or 4 to make sure its not diluted at all.

    I also heard there is different degree ratings of it. I just goto Menards and buy a bunch of them. We use it in all 4 of our skis.

    That way any run off wont kill any animals and in the spring I just run the ski in the river and Im good to go. Wont pollute anything.

    Use NON toxic antifreeze. I use -100 which means that if it mixes with any water, its still protecting the ski. If you use -50, and it mixes with ANY water, it becomes almost useless with a protection of almost nothing below freezing. The -100 is actually meant to be mixed with water. I drain and blow out my system, and then fill the IC, and dump through the exhaust. Takes me about 1/2 to 3/4 of a gallon to do.

    I actually run my ski and use a small utility pump from menards to pump it through the ski while its running. Just like off the hose. I use a 5 gallon pail with the pump in it. Pour the antifreeze in the bucket and start it up.

    I use the regular green antifreeze 100% pure compatible with aluminium engines, get it pumped trough the flush port using a bilge pump while engine running. Just make sure that you recuperate all antifreeze comming out of the ski with a bucket and recycle it as it should.
