View Full Version : Shower issues

11-27-2008, 04:19 PM
I have just taken delivery of my new X-14. The boat is great so far but I do have one issue and that is with the shower. I can't find any blockages but it pretty hard to get wet with thing. Any comments?

It's kind of hard to say, but mine has a "Y" valve with hot & cold spiggots on it under the engine cover. They might be turned off/down.

Does the pump pressurize? Have you checked the nozzle?

Sounds like a warranty issue to me.

I found on my x-14 that the hoses on the back of the temperature contol bend from their own weight and cause a blockage. I used plactic zip ties to hold the three hoses together so they do no bend. You get at them by lifting the plastic box out with the control.

how does your ballast system function?

If you put it in neutral and run the engine at higher rpms does that change the flow?

I replaced my shower control valve on my 2008 40th and it gave me the pressure I needed. I was not very fond of the new control valve that looked like a kitchen sink fixture. I kept hitting it putting stuff in the trunk and it would change my temp. Anyway ordered the old style from heatercraft, installed it, and no problems. I also shortened any hose that was coiled
up. Hope this helps.

I have the sink fixture type control as well and I did also notice kinks in the pipes. As suggested a couple of zip ties holding everthing staight did help.
Ballast works well.
