    Rxtx 300 2018+ Reliability!

    Hello everyone, I was reading a lot in different PWC Forums, Utube, etc. and couldnít help but feel kinda worried about my new Rxtx 300 3019. 0 0 Hrs on it yet. Iím looking forward to taking it out for that first spin come summer 2020. Thereís shaft alignment issues, Hull cracking issues, makes me feel like Iíll be looking out for these things as a possible problem. And thereís no way of knowing if they are going to be a problem down the road. I know there always lemons in any batch of skies but a lot of ppl experiencing these issues. When you spend 20k on a machine they should be more reliable. Just my opinion.

    Engine and driveshaft (carbon ring) alignment can be checked by a competent tech (independant shop or dealer service dept).

    This can be done on a new machine, if you want to confirm it is correct before being put in the water.

    I was just changing the oil on my 19 RXT X 300 and @ 40 hrs I have a slight black line, in the hull, from the carbon ring. I don't think it's bad. I might get the alignment checked next season, just to be sure.

    I was thinking of getting it checked for alignment just to be safer than sorry. Thanks for the feedback. Not sure if my dealer has a good tech guy that will be good and honest if I were to ask for an alignment check. Any right questions a can ask before just to see if he knows what he’s talking about first? Most often these guys always doubt and think we don’t know what we are talking about.

    I'm no tech, but my understanding is if the carbon ring fails, it's indicative of other problems (usually alignment).

    So, if that's all they did, it could just be a band aid...
