RXPX cold temp help
Quick question. Does anyone see any issues flushing the ski with the pink RV antifreeze? I stood on the back of the ski connected a long hose to the flush port and funneled a couple of gallons through untill I saw it come out of the peep hole and exhaust outlet?
The engine is closed loop so I was just worried about the intercooler. I read online saing you have to disconnect certain hoses but I figured if it come out the peep hole the anitfreeze has made its way through the system.
I want to keep riding for another month and figured this would be a better solution then taking the hoses off everytime i ride.
Thanks for the help

You could have also used compressed air to force the water out of the intercooler... Ron

just use an electric pump, like sunp pump or a pool pump, to force water up the flush port.
you want soemthing with a pretty good flow/force to really pressurize the open loop of the cooling system.
just gravity fed is ok but if you really want to be safe use an electric pump.
i do this for all my skis, for the winterization.
unhooking hoses and adding antifreeze or compressed air is, like you said, a PITA.
