Do I need the air tube?
Do I need to keep the air tube that is attached under the seat that just ends down inside the engine compartment on my RXT?
would it be better to keep it off and have more air circulating in the engine compartment? Or do I need to keep it installed?

It's supposed to make the air flow all the way to the back of the ski before it exits the rear, but it really only does that when going quite fast. All of the rest of the time you've got an engine compartment full of hot air that has nowhere to go because the only exit from inside the hull is at floor level (because of the tubes in the front and back). I know that once I removed it all, I can now feel hot air coming from the back of my seat (while in a no-wake zone of course) which I could not before. That tells me that things are venting better, but that's just my opinion (someone else will chime in if they don't agree I'm sure).

I don't think it helps move air at all. The tubes (front and back) are snorkles in case you flip the ski. It traps the air and helps keep the ski afloat. Remove them, not needed.
