    Need help with my RXP-X seat?

    If you look at my other thread you will see that my RXP-X was under water. Now my seat weighs about 60+ lbs and still feels full a water. I have had it sitting out in the sun for about 4 days in 90+ deg weather and it is not drying out. No water is really even dripping from it either. I can squish the seat and feel the water, its being held like a big sponge. Any tips on how I can get it dried out? Thanks

    hmmm... leaving it standing up on the front corners, eventually it should drain most of the water out.

    That's what I though also but it isn't even dripping any water out.

    I had something similar happen to the back seat in my truck. Let it sit in the sun all week ,and results were minimal.
    Ended up unzipping the factory zippers that you aren't really supposed to mess with, and put 3 hair dryers in different areas, and let them all run. That worked pretty quickly.

    If still no luck after several days, the 2nd best option is to remove the upholstery, put only the foam in the washer under "spin" cycle. Make sure you put an even load to prevent the washer being out of balance. 15-20 minutes should do it.

    With all the technology put into these modern skis, I'm amazed they can't figure out the foam issue. Its crazy how heavy these seats are with normal use and no matter how long you let them drip. Why BRP hasn't made an air filled liner is beyond me. It would serve several advantages.

    I agree that it works for a wet rides but not sure if it would help in his case since the ski pretty much sunk and the seat was underwater for a quite long time.
