    What do you take with you?

    (2006 Challenger 180 CS)

    Hi Guys,

    Been lurking around here for a few weeks now and have learned a ton! My supercharger is currently on it's way back from Jerry with new SS washers and a green wheel. Intake is ready to go in once it gets back and I will be adding a new prop soon. GREAT SITE and GREAT MEMBERS!!!!!

    I am taking off to Lake Powell, AZ for our anual houseboating trip this week and was wondering what you guys take with you on big trips... I mean more mechanical things in case your boat takes a dump. I have all of my tools packed up already... but should I be taking an extra set of plugs? Oil (if so how much)? What else (besides a ton of beer!)???

    I will be there for about 10 days and will be pretty far out on the lake... no way to get to a shop... so what do I need?

    xtra fuses & JB Weld. Make sure all your nuts & clamps are tight before you leave. A little lock-tite wouldn't hurt. They have a way of vibrating loose & dropping out.

    #1 tool to take with you on any seadoo is something to pinch off the hose going to the exhaust pipe so you can be towed without drowning your motor.
    I also highly recommend a spark plug wrench and the addition of a second battery whether you are running an AMP or not, cause these things dont have a pull cord.

    Cool... thanks for the tips.

    Great idea for towing... when we motor the house boat out we tow the boats for a couple of hours. So this tool... I looked for something at Pep Boys and they didn't have anything... could I just use a vise-grip with a couple blocks of wood or rubber wedged in between so I don't damage the hose? And which hose am I pinching?
