    Got One Running - Have a few basic questions

    Ok, I got the 98 slxh running but seems to be really high rpms at idle hooked up to the hose. I realize it's not under load but 3900 - 4500 seems a little high. Should I water test it prior to making any adjustments? Also, the trim does not work. No power to the wires in the box. Tried taking the swithch off to clean it up, but it is totally sealed and could not get it removed. Any suggestions on trouble shooting that? How long is it safe to run on the hose? Where is the best place to get a starter for the other one. It is a 1050 also. 99 year model

    Thanks for the link. I found some info on the trim, but can not find any details on the switch. Either I am blind or overlooking something simple. How does the switch itself come out. Looks to sealed on both sides and I can't find a way to access the contacts.

    I would test the input and output of the switch if you have not already. All easily accessable from the ebox. Could not tell if you had from your post. Attached is a diagram of a simmilar ski. Wiring is the same for the trim.

    I believe the switch to be sealed. I find it less likley that trim failed in both diretions. My exp. is that you may loose up or down, but not both simotaniously as a result of corrosion in the switch.

    Tested the blue white and I think green white at the e box yesterday but was not pressing bilge at same time. No power there also, it doesn't work while the engine is running.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Try pressing the bilge button. If there is power in but not out while pressing the button then just replace the switch.
