    First time Winterization Tips

    So this will be the first year and first time winterizing my 06 Seadoo RXP. It's basically stock with an X-Charger and 42s. Is there any extra precautions I should take since I am storing out doors but not in the elements? Will be in a portable car tent and tarped as well as the cover on it. Up here in Alberta, Canada it can get brutally cold -30*C or -20*F for you Americans. I have watched 3ft Deeps video and that's basically all I was going to do.

    Get a 5 gallon bucket and a bilge pump and make yourself an antifreeze pump run antifreeze through it just to make sure that there's no water left fog the cylinders run fuel treatment and enzyme treatment to protect the fuel system and fog the spark plugs and remove the battery don't forget also check the pump

    Is it necessary to change the engine oil if it only has 10hrs on it since the last change? Seems like a waste to me.

    Acids from running in the oil... always a good idea to change when it's going to sit
