    What are these on my RXP?

    What the heck are these and why are they on my ski? One on my ride plate and one on my Pump. Are they like a muffler bearing or what? LOL!!

    Anodes to prevent corrosion.

    You might want to put a VOM between the anode and the ski ground to measure the resistance to see if the anode is worn out... Ron

    Sacrifical anode. The idea is that instead of the electrolosis in salt water eating the needed metal parts of the machine it instead attacks the anode and eats the anode instead.

    Infinity or no continuety shows that the zincs are bad. A few ohms shows that the zinc is still good... Ron
