    picked up a 08 rtx with 50 hours with extended warranty few questions

    so the ski is great shape, but def not the shape i would of kept it. the guy i bought it from was not very knowledgeable though, brought it in for maintenance and fluid changes every year but thats all he was able to tell me. i know nothing bout these SC skis so bare with me. the ski has a 3 year extended warranty still, and i am pretty sure running on the stock super charger washers. i know that the older ones came with ceramic ones that failed at anytime especially after 50 hours.

    what issues did the 08's have that i should look into or bring into for service?

    you should definitely look into the tunnel cracking. I know many people has had that problem and it caused their ski to sink!

    RXT tunnel should be good. It is the RXTX's that had tunnel problems.

    one more question. how does the extended warranty work exactly? like when is it ok to bring it in so you dont get charged etc etc, what does it cover? also can i bring it to any licensed seadoo dealer? i did a search but all i got is people asking where to buy one, or if worth it. etc etc

    What warranty do you have ?? If its is the BEST warranty then any dealer. Just call your dealer and give the HIN they will give you the details.
