    04 RXP - Leak into Hull thru VTS

    Well I finally found the culprit to water entering my hull. It was a nice and quiet day at the lake due the absence of other watercraft. A few but they were far enough where it was relatively quiet. Thanks to the quietness I was able to hear water entering my 04 RXP. I was then able to pinpoint and visually see for myself that water was coming in from where the VTS exits the hull. I am figuring that I must have done something wrong when I reinstalled it after doing the water box mod (Before the mod I did not have any "water in the hull" issues). I am going to remove the VTS again and try to reinstall it. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I need to double check or steps I need to take to fix this issue?

    Have you taken that plastic nut off outside the rear of the VTS exit thru the hull? Wondering if it was stripped or just not tightened all the way.

    Yeah I tightened it with the sea doo tool. Not too tight but just till I could no longer turn the tool by hand. I think I did this because I read somewhere not to over tighten it. On SD.net someone had suggested to use silicone but I have yet to receive a response as to where to put silicone. I also don't think the manual called for silicone.

    Forgot to mention that the water only enters the hull when it is stationary

    It may be entering when it is underway too, but is getting syphoned out by the bilge drain system.

    Good point! I didn't think about that.

    just looking at the parts diagram here:

    by chance did you get that o-ring installed? #16

    Yes, I put the O-ring on but I really couldn't tell from the diagram where it was supposed to sit. I think I slid it to as far back as it would go. I'll check it when I take it off. By any chance do you or anyone else know where that o-ring should sit?
