    2011 RXT-X takes on water when anchored in water

    Posting this for a friend whose 2011 RXTX seems to take on water ( slowly) when ski is sitting in water and not running. Not 100% sure it is ONLY happening when sitting vs. riding, but seems to be the case. Anyone have this issue ? Need some feedback! Have not done a thorough inspection yet..

    The most common culprit is the fittings on the left and right sides of the pump that hold the iBr and steering nozzle in place. Especially if someone had tightened them down too tight and stripped the brass inserts out. Other sources are the sponson bolts, exhaust clamp, and bailer fittings.

    Another reason to have an automatic bilge pump!

    thanks for replies.

    The bellow and carbon seal could be the cause even when not running?
