    06 RXP rubber hoses

    There are two hoses in the front compartment next to the battery in the RXP. They both connect to the hull. One has a blue colored fitting, the other has a red. I've noticed that my hose connecting to the red is not connecting to anything on the other end. Anyone know where its supposed to connect to?

    the Red is the acid overflow/vent for the battery. Look near the top/side on the battery, there is an overflow fitting.

    One connects to the fuel tank and acts as a breather, the other connects to the battery as a vent for the battery. I do not remember the color combinations but check for both and hook up the one that is loose.

    I have the same issue with my GTX. I do not have a port on the battery to attach the hose. I spent an hour tracing the hose to the bow check valve. I assume that there may have been a battery cover that attached to the battery holdown bracket that may have been discarded by my service shop. I have had them do all the service till the warrenty was up. Should I go back and ask them for the cover, or did they replace the battery with a different one? I heve not paid for any new batteries in any of my servce work, so I assume they are original. Any thoughts?

    There is just a brrey hold down bracket with threaded studs on each side of the hold down. As far as I know there was not a "battery cover" on any of the 4-techs.

    If you have the original battery, there should be a nipple on the batery that the hose fits on. Replacement batteries might not have this. I would not worry too much about venting the battery though, there is plenty of air exchange.........
