Today out on the water both of my speedos wouldn't work. I've been through every scenario I can think of and checked every fuse. Is there another fuse that I'm missing? Or could there be a problem with a harness or connection? It's 02 X7 with a paddle wheel. I greatly appreciate any advice or insight!! I'm hoping to be back out tomorrow....

Paddle wheel broken? That happened to my bosses boat...

Actually it wasn't the paddle wheel, but the little plastic ears that protect the paddle wheel. Evidently I must have hit a trailer just right to bend one ear into the paddle wheel. I gently bent the piece back and everything worked normal. One the bright side, I learned that the water from a garden hose nozzle shoots out at 16 MPH!! We didn't miss a beat on the water yesterday!

I plan on heading over to my dealer this week to see if I can get a new unit to hopefully prevent this from happening again. I was suprised that the bracket with the "ears" was plastic and not brass...especially being that close to a bunk.
