    Coolant drain hose?

    just got a new pwc and was going over it when I noticed this hose. Is that a drain hose and should just run to floor of ski?
    thank you

    and pay attention. do NOT remove the cap when the engine has been run

    if you see antifreeze in your hull, it means trouble, bit trouble

    I wouldn't classify it as a drain hose...it's the coolant overflow hose. If coolant comes out, you have problems.

    There is coolant in the hose now but the ski hasn't been in the water yet so I assume that's just from the build?

    As long as the coolant level is correct, you're probably good.

    Wouldn't hurt to start it up / connect a water hose to the flush port / and let it run for 60 seconds.

    See if it spits out any coolant.

    Then disconnect water hose / shut off the ski.

    Thatís because when you fill up the coolant bottle the cap needs to be removed (obviously).

    So a few drops will make it to this hose.....
