New to TT

Been hanging out here and reading for while and decided to join. The infinite knowledge on this site is awesome! I bought an 03 X10 with 68 hrs back in June. I never imagined the amount of fun my family would have on this boat. My kids are in college and had outgrown us if you know what I mean. After our first trip I couldn't get near the boat with my truck without one of them wanting to know what time we were leaving. Both of my sons learned how to kneeboard & wakeboard this summer. I know this isn't the best boat for surfing, but we want to get into it next year. My daughter isn't interested in any type of boarding, but wants to learn to surf.

The boat came with dual batteries & a manual switch. I replaced the manual switch with a Blue seas ACR and moved the stero system from the house battery to the secondary batt. I also isolated all of the grounds. I replaced the amp with a JL 600/6, added 2 JL 7.7's to the tower, added a second amp, & replaced the 10" sub with a 12. The cabin speakers are shot, so I'm planning on replacing them with JL's over the winter. I had other things I wanted to do to the boat first, but the wife made the sound system a priority. She agreed to let me buy the boat so I couldn't argue with her.

I'm having issues with the gauges which I've learned these boats with medallion gauges are notorious for. My gauges do not initiate when the key is first turned on. They will come on after the boat has been running a few minutes. The temp, oil pressure, and speedo work fine after they come alive. RPM used to work but it has quit now. Voltage gauge has only read correct a couple of times & gas gauge stays on full. I plan on following the troubleshooting tips from other forum members and hopefully get it corrected. The boat didn't come with perfect pass and I want to add that over the winter as well.

Sorry for the long winded first post. Excited to be a part of the Mastercraft & TT family!

Welcome to Team Talk. Sounds like you have a great boat and some wiring difficulties. I am the wrong guy to help with the wiring, but someone will be by soon enough.

I will be more than happy to point out that you need to post some pics of your boat. We love pictures here.

Welcome to TT.
Nice looking boat. You have many more memory-making hours with your family ahead of you.
