    Do you use any soldering flux on the stranded wire or the terminal cup?

    Is the oil pump cable connected correctly? Pump are=m should angled towards the left side of the hull.

    For testing purposes I have ridden my Virage TXi, and other Polaris models, with the seat completely removed and left at the dock.

    I stand up for the entire test ride. Engine is rather noisy with...

    One inch of water inside the hull should not affect the electrical system nor the engine air intake. Sure, it is better to not have water in there.

    Unless when actually riding the accumulated...

    The sonar sensor for my Garmin chartplotter is mounted under the narrow aluminum plate, inline with the centerline of the ride plate.

    Weight increase on the tow ball is proportional to where the added weight is relative to the tow ball and the axle.

    100 pounds at 20% of the distance forward of the axle means only 20 more pounds...

    How much water depth are you getting inside the hull with the drain plugs installed? How many inches deep? Up to the driveshaft coupler?

    The electrical system is mostly water sealed. Spark plugs...

    Battery health and good cable connections to the engine are critical in all Polaris watercraft (and other brands too).

    Terminology clarification: after the engine dies and you try to restart the engine:

    I will suggest you may want to change to a different trailer that fits the hulls better. The winch itself is way too high and too close to the hull bow.

    If you really want to keep the current...

    I am still suspecting something is not quite right with the electrical system grounding.

    Have you checked inside the electrical box?

    Steering cable leak

    Leaks can come from ‘weird’ places, not just the obvious things (Driveshaft through-hull Seals, transom fittings)

    Be careful doing that with the Genesis. Again, the double layer hull is unusual. Most Polaris models do not have an inner liner. On models without an inner liner, putting water inside is a...

    My guess is you have the LR-31-x module. That was used in the later versions of red carb engine (that were not Virage/Genesis with single button for start and stop).

    All the LR-31 modules are...

    The LR voltage regulator module is not necessary to start and run the engine. It can be removed (and in the case of Virage/Genesis LR-505) bypassed.
