Wheelerd, I don't think it's a pi$$ing contest, just a good conversation over how we each think it works... I'll even buy you a box of your favorite (Canadian!) brew to show you what I'm talking...

Wheelerd, you can see that the non-valve side is on the water pump... It's a push, not a pull.

I went through h*ll with my local dealer when I poked a hole in my heater core. I knew it had a...

On the MCX, the valve is actually on the RETURN side of the circuit that goes to the heater core. Turning off the valve doesn't prevent water from going through the heater core, it only stops it...

I think you might be chasing a red herring with all the discussion of the airbag talk... I used to have an '02 Yukon, and it had this annoying little 'feature' called Turn Signal Alert. If you were...

Pram - is that the 1st time you've done it that way? If you've done it in previous years, I wouldn't worry about it. I think to clear it out, you might need to let it run more than just on the...

Yes, ever since I cracked the heater core (3 years ago), I've been blowing it out, then running pink through. I run it on the hose to warm it up, drain everything and blow out the hoses, then run it...

Good point about the shopvac for the heater hoses... I was worried about putting too much pressure in with the compressor, so I just didn't hold the hose down tight on the nozzle. That way, it...

Handy custom tools

Thought I'd share some of the tools I used to finish winterizing... I went to Home Depot and spent $25, but it sure made everything go smoothly this year.

I have an '06 X-30 w/MCX... It has the...

The only problem with over-valuing the trailer is that IF you insure the boat, you are de-valuing the boat. When I bought my X-30, we only used 1 bill of sale, but we had both transactions on there...

You don't need to worry about it because it's not a sealed system. The force and volume of the water past the thermostat will ensure any trapped air is forced out. You can see this for yourself by...

I agree 100% with Jim... I bought my boat without even firing it up, in the middle of November. The book looked *very* clean, service records were complete, previous owner gave me a good vibe, etc....

For the heater core, you could quite easily bypass the core with a 5/8" - 5/8" hose splice. Probably about $3 at HomeDepot. I split my heater core this past winter, and to avoid ruining a day on...
