    Default Wake plate problems

    Took the boat out for the first time the other day and the wake plate wouldn't move up or down. It's acting like they might be seized up. Can someone point me in the right direction to check the fluid? It's a 04 LSV thanks!!!

    A friend of mine had a similar issue on his Tige and it was a fluid issue. He refilled and it's been working great for a couple of years. Not sure how to check it though.

    My "blinker switch" on the steering column was mounted with the wiring very tight. By moving the wheel up and down, the wiring was pulled from the switch and caused my plate not to move. Simple fix. If you hear the pump, then you may have other issues.

    Pump and tank are located in the engine compartment mounted to the port (left) bulkhead support. The tank is opaque so you can see the level. If you hear the pump run but the plate doesn't move, check the fluid level. Uses ATF fluid and the fill port is very small. After adding fluid, run the plate up and down several times to bleed the air out. Also check the actuators for leaks.

    Is there any way my actuators are just electric? Cause I've looked everywhere for a place to check fluid and can't find any. Does anyone have any ideas?ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364426027.822434.jpg

    If yours is an '04 it is Hydraulic not electric according to owner manual. I had an '02 and it was Hydraulic. I want to recall the fluid tank was in starboard rear locker at the very back. About the size of a 1/2 gallon milk carton.

    Definitely hydraulic. The fluid reservoir on my 08 LSV is mounted right next to the ski plyon in the engine compartment. Worst case, follow the hoses connected to those two actuators back to the reservoir. Good luck!

    04 LSV eventually became 08 Outback V, which I owned. Confirming that it is hydraulic and that reservoir is located in engine compartment. I believe mine was mounted on the aluminum engine box bracing, up near the ski pylon, but on the port side.

    If nothing else, call a dealer or email jallen@skierschoice.com
