Perfect Pass Slower Than Set Point

Recommended Posts

tnlegendracer

First outing with 2004 LSV today. Prior owner showed me how to operate PP. I remembered (I thought) and it worked great on RPM mode. Then, I switched it to slalom mode and chose 32 MPH set point. However, the boat would only accel to 24-25 mph. I could raise the setpoint to 36 and get speed to read 28, but that's as fast as it'd go. Is this normal or what am I doing wrong?

You need to go thru the menus to adjust the proper RPMs to the set speed. It allows you to adjust for load and such too. I set mine using a handheld GPS that read out MPH and kept adjust the required RPMs for the boat to travel at 28, 30, 32, etc. Probably because I didn't trust accuracy of speedos (see recent speedo thread). If you trust your speedos then just use them to calibrate your PP speed set points.

Thanks for the help. I set it and got it going for 28. Will I need to do the same for each speed?

In addition to getting your baselines set you'll also want to calibrate the speed for PP itself. It's buried a little deeper in the menus, but it's there. Just download the manual from perfectpass.com, read it, learn it, love it.
