    2012 RXT-X grounded and overheated - what should I check?

    So my wife (really it wasn't me!) had my 18 hour RXT-X out and decided to stop in the bay. I guess she didn't notice it was low tide and full moon last night. Anyway she stopped in six inches of water with typical Barnegat Mud underneath. Needless to say she tried to drive out, got the overheat warning, shutdown and walked into deeper water. When she got to deeper she tried to start it (wouldnt start) and got some sort of message like "too hot". I know she pulled lots of mud through the system. Eventually after waiting she did get started and she says only got low speed, almost like limp mode. I wonder if she mistaked the "touring mode" for something more insidious? She trailered it, brought home and now I am wondering if my machine has a degenerative disease i.e. wear ring destroyed or even worse engine internal damage. Are these machines somewhat able to take a few minutes of mud through the pump? Any suggestions what I should check?

    Been there, done that.......in mud. Check the impeller/wear-ring. I had to replace both. Flush the intercooler/waterbox. You might have to remove both to do this fully.
