How long can you run an RXT on a garden hose?
I am/was under the assumption that you were not supposed to exceed 1 minute or something like that, but in the SeaDoo coolant refill procedure it refers to running for 2 minutes.
So how long can you safely run a SuperCharged Ski on a hose?

The oil change procedure outlined here says to run for more than 2 minutes. I thought it says 5 minutes..

The carbon seal will heat up if ran too long on the trailer

I personally wouldn't run it more than necessary,(For me thats no more than a min or so)The carbon seal and hat heats up very quickly when not cooled by water..You have to remember the carbon seal is brittle,heat it up and you could be experiancing a failure,and thats something you do not want to have on the water unless you want your ski to turn into a submarine...Also there are 2 rubber O-ring seals in the hat,heat the hat up to much and you could melt or deface the seals causing them to leak.....IF you really need to run it on the hose for a prolonged period i would have a second hose available to use to keep the seal cool...the water that gets in the hull can always be removed,but a sunk ski is a pain in the ass to retrieve and repair....

take the c clip off the drive shaft under the hat to remove pressure on the carbon ring.... and you can run it for a little while..

If it's open loop run it all day if you can keep the carbon seal cool. I will just leave some water in hull and when done use bilge to pump it out.

so in less than 1 minute, should be fair enough to flush all the salt from the waterbox?
