    Towing the RXP with another boat??

    I know there probably aren't many people that do this but is it possible and if so where can I get the parts? I've heard that it is possible due to the closed loop cooling system. I've also heard that there is a way to tow but haven't been able to find any info on it. Any suggestions??

    What type of water are you going to try and tow it in? There are a couple good products for towing watercraft, just depends on what type of boat and what conditions your going to tow the ski in.

    the RXP is towable, you just have to use a hose pincher to pinch off the water line that feeds the intercooler and exhaust. its the black hose with the green stripe.

    I want to tow it off of a 22' Center console with a 225 merc on it. As for water conditions they can range from glass to 2-3' foot chop I suppose any thing more than that and I probably wont be out with the boat.

    Oh I was told that I didn't need any lines cut off, but then again that was by a salesmen that no longer works at the dealer lol. Where can I get a line pincher or what can I use?

    Ha then again maybe I should just tow the boat with the ski lol

    Towing the RXP with another boat??

    One more thing

    Based on the antics of the Jetski tv show you’ll want a high capacity 12v bulge pump in place while in tow that you can control from the towboat

    And a safe way to cut the towline in case of the worst

    And an elb you can trigger attached to the towline so you have a chance to find the ski in that case
