    Covered or not?

    Ski is winterized at shop,everything done. After the seat is left partialy off do I leave any other compartments open and do I cover it or leave cover off to let air circulate? Stored in semi-heated garage in Ottawa,Ontario Canada which means some very cold temps. New owner like a new parent,lots of questions.

    I leave my hood open, seat off and battery tender hooked up with cables still attached.

    I used two pieces of pvc pipe 1" dia and about 4 " long. I put them over the seat and storage stud. Holds the seat and front storage open real nice. Very cheap way to keep air cirulating. I would cover it also. I keep my ski in the garage. The ski still gets dirt and dust just sitting there for a week.

    In Ottawa you need to pull the battery out and put it inside, charge it in the spring and maybe check it half way between. Cover it to keep the dust off unless you want to look at it or show it off. I keep all the comartments open so no condensation builds up. Your cover will breath.

    Thanks

    I have a 2006 rxp s/c. I bought it in early July,used 40 hours on it. I put almost 20 hours on it in the summer. Lots of questions but I am slowly learning as I go along. This site is amazing,worldwide help with any problem or question I might have.
    I have to travel past Kingston to the cottage,are there any good shops to take my ski to if I have to?
