I bought my 2011 in April 2012 (was a left over from 2011). It has the big PCM (6.1 or 6,2, 410hp). I have only managed to get a whopping 35 hours on the boat. Mainly due to problems. I missed a month last year, due to the heat exchanger not being properly winterized, causing break in the coils and thus the following overheating issues. The dealer and PCM got into a pissing match over who would pay for the parts and labor. I ended up getting the short end of the stick, and it wasn't until I got really pissed after 3 weeks that stuff finally got moving. Everything ran great on the boat for the rest of the season. (mind you I am in Vermont where summer lasts only 3-4 months on the lake). Successfully finally broke the boat in.
Now this year, I having overheating problems and have spent $700 already and have lost 2 weeks on the lake already this year. Dealer hasn't been able to figure this out. Ended up changing the impeller, which was not terrible, but was not perfect either. They checked everything, many hours and then water tested it for an hour and could not get it to overheat. I take it out a few times and then last night on a slow cruise, it starts to overheat. I am at a no wake speed, (1500 RPMs) for 5 minutes. My slip space requires a 10min no wake ride to get out of breakwater, so did this lots last summer. I hit the throttle as an experiment and get up to 30mph at 3500RPM and the temp comes down. I head back home and as soon as I slow down, the temp starts creeping back up.
Anyone else seen this problem?
I see some stuff about pump wiring voltage issues, but thread is unclear.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
