    Fuel tank capacity

    If you look where the fuel fill line attaches the tank you might be able to see the certifcation plate for the tank from the manufacturer it will have the capacity listed . Mine is located on the backside of the tank facing the engine I can see it from the engine compartment

    Instrument panel gauge lights

    If you boat has a dimmer it will be a small rotary switch with a black knob about 1/2" in diameter maybe 5/8" long . Sometimes they are on lower edge of the dashboard mounted in a vertical position pointed toward the floor. Maybe the black knob is missing only the shaft of the switch is there making it easy to overlook

    Fuel leakage on the brand new 19 H2O

    Leaking gas is a ticking time bomb. The dealer needs to repair this issue at no cost to you . Do not use the boat again til this is repaired

    Bent Propeller Shaft - Alpha 1

    The dial indicator is reading .002 rotate the shaft with the indicator in place zero the indicator at the low spot then rotate the shaft again the high number will be the amount the shaft bent .if there is a smooth area on the end of the shaft where nut threads are that would be a better place to check the the shaft for trueness

    Aluminum Trailers

    I have a aluminum 2013 Venture trailer . Its been trouble free in the three years I have used it. I believe they are located in Baltimore MD. Trailer tires are designed to to be ran at max pressure . On a long distance tow I always stop around the first fifty miles of ths the trip and lay my hand on all the hubs and tires to check for over heating and check them every time I stop after that . If you have any of the four tires that blew out you need to check the date of manufacture to make sure they didn't sell you old tires

    2010 Engine in brand new 2012 boat

    I would look at my bill of sale. If lists 190 HP then you got what you agreed to. If its says 200 HP I think your dealer needs to make it right for you

    Dead 2013 246

    I had a similar problem with may boat last year . Look under the dash look for a black rectangle shaped relay about inch square maybe two to three inches long grasp the relay in one hand and then grasp the the plug the relay plugs into with your other hand and fully seat the relay into the plug . This happened to me the second time I put my new 216 in the river. The owner of my dealership came to the boat ramp and helped me get it going
