Thread: no wake button

  1. #1

    no wake button

    Dont really understand why the "No Wake Mode" option is necessary. When you turn the SHO on it goes forward slowly anyway and is there anyway to tell if the "No Wake Mode" is actually on after you press the button?.

    No wake mode allows you to travel faster through the no wake zones by increasing your speed but not your wake. You can tell its on because your digital speedo will show 5mph flashing.

    No-wake mode actually has much more power than idle. I towed 2 people and supplies for several miles using No-wake Mode. This kept the inflatable from ripping apart, yet it got us where we needed to go and I could calculate the time well as there is no fluctuation. I like the option very much. I use idle when I am approaching the trailer however.

    cold

    Why would you say it looks cold? I don't see any ice on the water, so it must be warm.

    Press and hold it down for a few seconds while idling. It's all in the manual.
