    can anyone help with two jet skis that don't start

    i have 2 jet skis one is a rxt and a rxt-x both 2008 sea doo they have been in storage for 4 years outside in florida. i made a mistake by tilting the trailer forward instead of backwards and i just recently checked them and there was a lot of water inside but it didn't reach the fuse box it was about a quarter of an inch below the fusebox. I changed the batteries on the rxt it doesn't start at all when you push the start button.On the rxt-x i get the two beeps and when i start it cranks up slowly and then it stops never fully starting. can anyone help me with any suggestions or any ideas on what to do or change I would greatly appreciate it.

    I'm guessing they weren't properly fogged with storage oil prior to sitting for 4 years?

    First, check the oil. Then depending in what you see as nothing, milky, or fine, will determine the next step. Can try taking out the plugs to see if that helps. Check the fuses in the one that does nothing or jump the solenoid if that helps.

    High moisture for 4 years on unfogged engines - electrical components are going to be your enemy here!

    Cool

    If you want to sell them I have cash and I'm in Florida.
    I just had a 06 rxt 215 pair that had set for 3 years.
    They had more issues than any other skis I've had.
    I will tell you that I had 5k in repairs to get them into shape .
    That's 5k my price which equals 7500 stealership prices.

    Too many issues due to complete lack of use and no maintaining..

    Pm me if you want to sell and start over...

    Try pulling the spark plugs and seeing if you can turn the one that tries over easier without compression. You can also spray a shot of PB Blast if it needs a little help. The one with no start, try jumping the selenoid in like manner. Would say to pull the pump to see if that helps after you've tried what I said earlier.
