  1. Thanks. I guess I am looking for input from someone who has a boat of a similar vintage and power plant to see if I should even have one to begin with, then I can see about next steps.
  2. All, 2004 210SSi with a Volvo Penta 5.0GL (carb'd). When I turn my key on, and the engine is not running, there is no audible alarm/buzzer. I have never had an overheating or low oil pressure condition, so I don't know if I'd get an alarm for that. Should there be an alarm on my boat? I am the third owner so I am not sure if it is something a previous owner disabled. Jim
  3. I tow my 2004 210ssi with my Toyota 4Runner, which has a 5000 pound rating, which I am right up against. It works well enough, but I only tow a couple times a year for short distances, as I keep my boat on a lift. It doesn't feel unsafe, but I sure know the trailer is back there when underway. I bet with the longer wheelbase a Tacoma would feel better, but not as good as a larger, heavier truck. Enjoy!
  4. Correct, it is a RAM mount, but my mounting is a little different than Tom. Mine is mounting in the vinyl covered panel ahead of the throttle, versus being mounted in the dash.
  5. Here is my installation. 2004 210SSi, Lowrance Hook2 7. I have the Navionics maps upgrade and use is solely as a chartplotter... Have not used the fishing features to date. I can still see the oil pressure and temperature gauges, they are only slightly obstructed. The factory depth gauge is unusable with this mounting, but I don't need it as the Lowrance unit has it. Jim
  6. I have the size large in white... as noted above, been very happy with it. I had the same problem as you and this resolved it perfectly. I don't even notice it anymore, the white one blends in well. Jim
  7. I've used this the past two seasons.. works great in my 2004 210 SSi with the standard seating (pair of back-to-back chairs): https://www.bolsterbuddy.com/
  8. Thanks. I needed a new pump anyways to resolve the first issue, so it was still worth the update. Sounds like a trim cylinder checkout/rebuild is in order. Jim
  9. All, So for an update, the replacement of the pump was straightforward as I had hoped. the cables on the new pump were the exact lengths and connectors as the original. The biggest challenge was reaching behind the engine to feed the cables. Next time around I'll try to procure the original style cable ties with built in screws, so the installation will be as clean as original. After a test drive, the new pump has solved problem #1 above, but I am still seeing the drive drift down when underway (problem #2). So, the internal valve leakage in my old pump was not the root cause fo
  10. Thanks for the feedback.. Yes, I have the internal pump assembly mounted on the floor of the bilge, not the one on the transom. Sounds like a straightforward job... I'll tackle it on the 5th! Happy 4th of July everyone, Jim
  11. Hello all, I have a 2004 210 SSi, VP 5.0GL with a SX-M outdrive. I have been having a few trim issues: (1) Periodically the pump with stop working, and require a tap on the unit to get it working again. (2) When underway and trimmed up, the drive will slowly drop towards the transom. I do not see any evidence of external fluid leaks, and from what I have researched there may be leak in an internal valve on the pump. I decided to go ahead and replace the trim pump, and I procured a new Volva Penta P/N 3587079 pump assembly (same P/N as original) and a couple bottles of Volvo Penta T
  12. I have the standard seating setup on my 210SSi (pic attached), with the pair of back to back seats. Overall I like the setup, however I can't seem to find a comfortable way to drive the boat when standing with a knee on the seat for support. The seats have a good amount of bolstering, which is fine when you are sitting, but not so great with a knee on them. I believe the sport seat option has a flip up section in the bottom to help with this. Any suggestions for an aftermarket option to help with this... a little additional padding for height/cushion? I know some people use their t
  13. I live/work in Syracuse, but I have a camp and my boat in Cape Vincent on Lake Ontario.
  14. PM Sent... While I eventually will likely upgrade the speakers, for now I'd like to get by with the originals.
  15. I sent you a PM... Do you have any functioning stock speakers left after your upgrade to the newer JBLs? I am looking for one of these original speakers for my 2004 210 SSi. Let me know! Jim
