transmission winterize

outside the wake

I have an 04 5.7L indmar monsoon and have drained manifolds,block on both sides,raw water pump hoses disconected, I see two hoses running from the front of the motor (off the raw water pump) that are going to the back and look like they connect to the transmission. I have a direct drive transmission and was told there is nothing to drain on a direct drive. What are these hoses for? This is my first Bu and first inboard and dont want to miss anything.

Without seeing what you are looking at, those hoses are likely the ones that bring tranny fluid forward the the tranny cooler. They carry tranny fluid not water, and therefore do not want to be disconnected or drained.

I think you are correct.

I think you are correct.

Would the hoses be taking the fluid to the raw water pump in front and does it pass through something to cool it (transmission fluid)?

Through the tranny cooler, look at page 6 of this winterization doc and keep it for you records.
