    First post.. New 2021 FXHO footwell drains question

    Just purchased a new 2021 fxho, and its on a trailer here at a marina where I also keep my Sundancer. Been raining all day and I noticed one footwell is empty, the other has 4" of water in it. How do the drains actually work? Should they just gravity feed out of the footwell and through the hull? Is it scavenged out by vacuum with the engine running? This waverunner was just assembled out of the crate 2 days ago. Can't be a clogged drain. I haven't had a chance in the rain to pull the seat and investigate the hoses. Thanks for any info!!!! -Mike

    Gravity drain.

    I think there is a check valve inline with the drain tube for each side. It does not take much to clog the rubber drain insert in the footwell. The holes are fairly small, a single leaf can prevent the flow.

    I suppose it is also possible an interior drain hose is kinked or squashed flat inside the hull. Or routed incorrectly. The entire system should slope slightly downhill from the footwell drain to the hull exit fitting in the back, adjacent to the jet pump.
