    Bilge Pump in a STOCK RXP-X 260

    Has anyone managed to mount bilge pumps in a bone stock RXP-X 260? If so, are your bilge pumps fully automatic? I can't seem to find anywhere flat enough to mount a fully automatic bigle pump without modding the ski. Seems most people are removing the resonator and/or waterbox, which really isn't an option for me...

    What brand/model pump is that you're using?

    Bigdaddy has an awesome setup in his skis!
    With a bracket you can mount them anywhere. Fully automatic with a manual switch is the only way to go...

    Yeah but he ripped out his resonator to make room on the starboard side. And I have no idea what he did to make that metal bracket for the port-side pump. It probably required tools that I don't have access to.

    Yeah, I was just suggesting if a bracket ofsome sort could be made it may help with mounting options.

    Sounds like they have a kit for the ski which may make it easier. Here are couple threads I found. One of them has some pics of others and where they mounted them.

    Look at the Whale brand fully automatic pumps. Had one in my 2010 rxtx and it was a nice piece. They also have a remote unit which could work. They have electronic float switches.

    rule 500 digital is the way to go. You honestly only need one. If you have two of those on you have a serious problem and are probably going under anyway. Also two will take the battery down to nothing twice as fast! Let me add that is MY opinion.
