  1. Hi Everyone, I have a truck camper and will want to tow my 2015 FS33 but need to extend the hitch 24" to get past the end of the camper. After looking into this a lot I am not coming up with amazing options. From looking at dry weight + 20% to get wet weight + fuel + gear + trailer I am looking at about 7,300 lbs with a tongue weight of around 500 lbs. The first idea is to install a super Hitch Magnum (new 2017 F350 and only one they have that fits this truck) and a SuperTruss that extends 24" that will give me a tow weight of 7,500. The second option would be to do a Hitch extension that is 24" but need to install a Weight distribution sway control system with a pole-tongue adapter and it will give me a tow weight of 8,000. Now with a weight distribution system they say it is compatible with surge breaks but can see it giving more resistance since you know have two bars pushing back on the trailer. Just looking for some ideas. and if anyone has done anything like this or something else.
  2. I have two sets of the Exile XM9's and love them. Samson Sports has designed an adapter plate that mounts directly to the downfire mounts.
  3. The only things I have heard about and have happened to me is the exhaust tip can fall off and the flashing of the LED lights when the boat has been off. The exhaust tip is simple to add on again with some washers so it does not fall off and well the LED's flashing just takes turning off the battery's with the disconnect switch when out of the water. This is also a problem with the RI's. Hope this helps.
  4. Boat Hook

    Ok now that is funny. Having boat hook is a good idea. Keeping hands off the dock is a good way to make sure a finger-hand is not squished between the dock and boat or boat and boat. I also have a walking fender that is out when we are docking so someone can easily put this between the dock and boat.
  5. That sucks and your not going to like the answer. Flake looks amazing but if it has to be fixed it sucks. I am a person that can see all and I like things to be perfect. Now with that being said it takes time. To do it right they will have to take the whole panel down and build it back up. This is because the flake is not mixed the same as it was the day it was in production from the factory. Since boats are built from the outside working in you will have just a little bump on this panel since they are now working from the inside out. Now for time really comes down to who does the repair. Like Stoked said getting the Centurion is quick but working on it can take time. With how big you are saying I would say a month from when you drop her off to pick up. Might be quicker depending on how many other projects they are working on.
  6. Oil pump

    After using a hand pump for years then making my own just purchase this one. It is all included and easy. Well worth the money. Pay upfront to save you time and a workout later.
  7. Same thing happened to me earlier this year. A ghost in the system reset my fill and empty times to run about 30 second short of a full bag. Have to enjoy the computer ghost from time to time. Now if they could ever get the LED lights to stop flashing when the boat is turned off that would be great.
  8. How to fix a leaky boat

    ROFL. Added bonus you now have a CAT's fin.
  9. Loose wires under the dash

    He just wanted to say "Hi my friend, can I sit on your lap well you drive"
  10. I do like Whisky. I would start with the button itself. It could be how you are pressing it. If you have a wife let her push it since they are great at pushing things until they break :). For troubleshooting you could pull the wire going to the starter and put a voltage meter on it to see if you get the same voltage every time. If you confirm strong voltage the next place to check would be a relay or computer control for the starting system. I do not know what one it is since I have not looked at how this is wired up. Hope this helps.
  11. Skipped out of work on Friday for a great time and to roll 200. This should have happened two months ago but Doctors just do not know what fun is. Could not have asked for a better day on the water. Also got another person up for the first time and hooked on surfing. Smiles from ear to ear.
  12. Guess you need to teach the crew to get out and push. I have had the same issue at higher elevation and also when I got some weeds on the CAT's fin. Last time it happened to me I did a really hard reverse and it cleared up.
  13. Sorry for the delay. I think the newest FW for the FS33-44 is 2710531. I will be at my boat and can check what I am running. Do you have Drainmaster or valterra valves?
  14. On the Ram system you can leave them open when you trailer and next time you boot up the system it will close all the gates. It is part of the system startup like running the CAT's fin to the left then finding center and moving the wakeplate up.
  15. What FW version are you running? If it is the original I would say get that updated to the last version they made for the 2015's.
