I have a new Challenger 180 and on page 72 of my owners manual there is a reference to flushing the exhaust cooling system.
I tried to connect my water hose for about an hour and decided I must be doing something wrong. I went to the local boaters world and they made me a quick adapter. I got home and still could not reach the connector.
I called my dealer and he said that this new model (2005) does not require this flushing and that the connector hole is only if you want to add an adapter?
I have had regular jet skis and know that is is really important to flush these out, has anyone else heard this? If you are flushing, how are you getting to the connector.
Thanks for any feedback and advice.
Have your dealer provide you with a easy access flush kit ($19.95) part number 295500068. I have a 180 and it is impossible to reach the adapter in the rear. As a general rule I flush after each use. With the flush kit, you open the middle rear seat and your garden hose connects easily to the engine compartment without struggling at the rear of the boat. You can view the flush kit on page four of accessories at www.seadoo.com. Hope this helps! Copy and paste the link below to view the kit.
