    Winterize

    I got a '08 RXP. I know the book says to winterize the intercooler to use compressed air at 100PSI to blow the water out.

    Guys with a '08 do you do this or do you use antifreeze and a pump?

    I didn't use compressed air to blow it out last fall. I just rigged up a hose, a funnel and pink RV antifreeze and ran it thru the system for about 2-3 minutes.

    I made up a reducer from garden hose to 1/2" (They have them at hardware stores)

    On that reducer I put a 18" clear hose on it.

    Screw the reducer in the flush port and took a hudson sprayer and filled it with about 1 gallon of RV antifreeze.

    Pump up the sprayer, turn on the ski, and keep pumping the sprayer until red comes out the exhaust.......


    Pretty simple to use, and up in Minnesota where skis get down to -25 degrees, every spring it fires up just fine.

    I also stuff steel wool into the exhaust right at the exit so mice will stay away........

    I think they do that so the dealer can do it with air and charge you $10/gal for the antifreeze. Profit is profit... Ron
