    There is a threaded hole just to the right of the pump assembly. I'm guessing its the only hole that a reg hose will fit into back there.

    in the rear to the left of the rear nozzle somewhat far back is a fitting. You need a certain hose adaptor to go in it. I orginally had the one seadoo gave me when i bought it but lost it some how. I went to a home supply store and got an screw on quick connect connector and short hose peice (6-8" long) and used that instead works better than the original.

    Make sure that you start the ski before you turn on the water supply or say hello to possible damage to the exhaust valves.

    Funny I was just reading about this at work and trying to figure out if that was the right place to put the off water flushing port. After studying the diagram, my conclusion is that I am sending the water on reverse and part of the exhaust manifold is not getting enough cooling water. If you have the bible, you would see my point. for now here's some pictures the on trailer flushing port. hope it helps.

    RX951, just the person I was looking for. I am glad you chimed in. I saw in one of your post, that you were able to post and copy the manual page on an RXT. can you post the page for the "water direction from the pump to the exhaust manifold to the waterbox?" The reason is I think I can install a flush port by cutting before the Groco stainer, where I think should be in the first place, just like normal riding in the water. If you use the flush port like in my picture which is normal per Sea Doo....your actually going in reverse in feeding cooling water? did I make sense?
