First trip with my new 2010 23 LSV

Recommended Posts

scottserena

It is our first trip out with the new boat. And what a great time we are having. I am posting this from our lake house in Lake Havasu, AZ.

Coming from a 10 year old Malibu the difference is night and day. The new boat handles the chop like a champ! Wake is unbelievable!

Although I feel like a need a PHD in understanding all the electronics (ballast, mux, malivu, stereo).

A few little issues. Right ballast tank always shows full, even when it is not. Stereo is not working 100%, rear stereo remote does not work, and the controls on the dash for the stereo do not work as well. The only way to control the stereo is thru the malivu.

Love the new tower, and the new racks are really nice! We had a custom made bimini top made from Skylon, it is 8 1/2' long! Covers most the main cabin. When it is 117 degrees in Havasu you better be in the water or under the bimini or you will melt.

All in all, I am super impressed with the boat. post-10230-1253409298_thumb.jpg

Nice congrats and glad you love the boat. On the black box check to make sure your remotes are plugged in. There is two ports (din plug ins) on the black box for remotes. If they are plugged in unplug them and plug them back in. They will be the far left plugs ontop of the box.

No it doesn't.

But it can get caught on the tower racks when I turn to pick up a rider

Ballast was 100% filled on the passenger side. Having trouble with the driver side ballast tank, doesn't seem to fill as the gauge says it is 100% even when empty

It was also very choppy

yes, on mine unfortunately it does, especially when you wakesurf - the angle of the rope is different then!

Looks like we have a few things in common.

I am in calif, own a home in havasu and bought my boat from the dealer in Temecula. (i'm in temcula).

I also have a 23LSV with some orange ! From your pics it looks like you bought yours from the same place.

oh, and now I am having stereo problems !!

are you a brother I didn't know about??

YEah we went to different high schools together.

Yes I bought mine from Chris over at Paradise.

I also pull mine with a Denali.

We have a place at the Islander in Havasu, so if you ever in town and need to use our boat ramp (instead of the public ramps) let me know.

Stereo problems seem like a common theme with the JBL black box
