    RXT Is weekend ride

    I put a couple hours on the "Is" over the weekend. The thing works very well in the chop! It's a very dry ride too. No splash over the nose. I made a couple WFO runs.........Speedo was showing close to 70 and my Garmin showed 68.1 mph. Very impressed with this thing!!!

    I finally got my RXT iS out in the water this weekend. I rode it in some pretty heavy chop, and it was a very smooth ride.

    The iS brakes, I was going full tilt boogie and slammed on the brakes with two riders, and this thing threw both of us completely off the ski! I guess I was at an angle when I hit the brakes, it went sideways and almost flipped over.

    It does have a couple of bugs in it, the speedometer and tach gages do not work. and I have a light on that says maintenance required, which makes the ski difficult to start.

    Is this the first time you put the ski in the water? If it is the maintenance light is probably on because the battery wasn't fully charged. You also might see a fault code 2232 which is voltage code. Don't worry about that, sea doo says when you adjust the suspension that might trigger the fault code. I have the gtx is and experienced some of the same issues except my speedometer worked. charge your battery.

    How does your depth gauge work? I had the dealer install a debth gauge on my RXT Is and it only works 1/2 the time.

    Cmascali,
    Whats the latest news with your GTX Is? Did they find what caused the steering problem? Was it the hull as you suspected?

    Got it back Fri tested it in mostly calm water. Dealer adjusted the steering says it was a little off. I still think something is not right.
