    Winterizing

    A fellow member ask the question what was the best way to winterizing his GPR. My reply was...
    " Living here in SC I still use antifreeze. Antifreeze is cheep insurance! My old Sea Doo I'd pull the temp sensor and pour in. Now with my VX I had a brain storm. I buy 2 gals of AF, dump into a 5gal bucket,mixing 1-1 ratio and then connect to a

    via hose made up from tigon tubing and hose ends purchased from Lowes just like when flushing. I'll follow the flushing steps as described in the ops manual. I'll pickle the engine until the bucket is empty. Sounds like a lot of work but well worth it"
    Thought I'd share with you 4 strokers

    I used a bilge pump to do the same thing the first year I had the ski. I even blocked the line going back to the strainer, but it never made it to the pissers. Prob not worth the trouble, just lift the nose up and blow it out a few times. That has worked for me for a few yrs

    You need to block the line behind the flush port where it goes back to the inlet strainer on the pump if you are ever going to make it work. Your pump may have the balls to pump more than the bilge I had did, but you may end up wasting money on the pump. I am not 100% sure, but this is what I observed when I tried it

    The pump I use has plenty of pressure.
