Perfectpass works for tubin not skiing?

Mine's working at 18mph but won't take over at 34? Any ideas?
2005 prostar 197 with the mcx. Was working fine...

Maybe the cable needs to be wound in on the servo. It might be be tight enough to hold the throttle open at 18 but not have enough travel left to get it done at higher speeds. Servo could be going bad too. This should show you some of the self tests you can run it through http://www.perfectpass.com/sites/all...tCraft2005.pdf

For skiing do you have your PP set based on speed or RPM?

It's drive by wire so the servo isn't the issue. It runs to 40mph just fine by hand.

I believe the system is GPS based, so speed not rpm.

It's just weird that it works on wakeboard mode and not on slalom. Sounds like I need a new boat.

The PP on my 05 still has the paddlewheel although I've considered upgrading to Stargazer with GPS. With my version at least I use speed mode for surfing and boarding, and RPM mode for skiing. Somewhere in my User Manual it recommends that. If you have Stargazer it might be different.

Slalom ski mode is based on rpms even though it's a GPS system. Rpm's are the only way to get a smooth consistent pull at those speeds. That said, you need to make sure your baselines are correct. PP has generic baseline rpms set but you have to tweak them for your boat and prop. If you don't have the manual, go to their website and download a copy...I assume you have Stargazer. The manual will tell you how to adjust the baseline rpms.

Thanks guys. I read about baselines but I don't even get the wrong speed, I get no beep. Maybe I'll try calibration and if not give perfect pass a call. J

Have you tried a lower speed? Does perfrect pass display your rpms? You may not have hooked up the tachometer correctly and therefore perfect pass thinks you're always doing 0 rpms.

When I had to send my normal 13x11.5 in for repair, I had to run my old 13x13 prop. Knowing I had to recalibrate the baselines, I took the boat out to see how far off it was. Well perfect pass didn't kick in until roughly 39mph because that's the new speed where the rpm's were at.

I'll try that again. I did just change the prop but it shouldn't be too far out. Maybe this weekend.

Dang I had this problem with my X2 but that was three years ago and don't remember where setting was that I had to change. There's a setting you need to increase in one of the menus. Call PP and they'll tell you where it is.
