    For your truck:
    1. Change out any fluids and do other routine maintenance that's anywhere nearly due. By "nearly due", use the manual's harsh service interval.

    I have had this on my to-do list for years! It's hard when the boat is normally so far from home.

    Also check the electrical connections. On the model on my boat, they are not shielded against water, so corrosion or am intermittent short circuit could be an issue.

    A new one is 5-10% of the cost of a boat, but doubles the value of having the boat for towed watersports. When there's foot-high chop, wakeboarding is more exercise than fun, but you can still foil!

    Usually for about an hour, 2-6 times per year. Typically, I'd just take it on one cottage trip and one or two trips home for cleaning. My XLV has spent most of its life at the marina.

    Oops! Well, now that you have to replace a winch, you might as well get the right one, the Fulton F2 two-speed winch. You will never need to power on again. I upgraded to this model and it works...

    I simply use the winch to get it on. Powering on wrecks the gravel ramp. It takes a couple of experiments to find the correct amount to back in, but after that it works like a charm.
