    Maintenance on stored ski

    Alright I am finally getting ready to go get my 06 RXP. I moved to Florida almost 3 years ago and left all my toys in Missouri. I have finally decided to make the long drive.
    Just getting some ideas on what one would do as far as preventive maintenance to make sure everything is OK. It has been setting in my parents garage for 3+ years, and has
    probably only been started 3 or 4 times. I know what I am planning on doing but welcome any ideas. thanks in advance.

    Obviously I haven't been on here in a long time, but remember this place was awesome hope it hasn't changed

    Was it fogged and prepped when it was laid up?

    New battery, oil and fluids change, fresh gas ( syphion the old gas out) new plugs maybe do a jet pump oil change as a precaution

    Possible new tires for the trailer and check the bearings on the hubs.

    Yep got the new tires and wheels, checked bearings, bought a spare set GIC. Back in Florida now no issues whatsoever. Now time to get a list going of what I want/need. Already planned on doing bttery, fluids, and plugs. Didnt really think about the pump oil. Thanks for the reminder. And no it was not fogged when it was backed in the garage.
    Couldn't remember the hrs on it so I plugged the key in expecting nothing but battery had enough to bring up the gauges but not turn it. all of 86 hours on it. I knew it was low, but thought I was at least over 100 been a long time.
    Need to start looking at IC, exhaust, intake, etc. etc. etc. Keep the advice info coming.
    Thanks
