Maintenance Intervals 2001 Sunsetter VLX

Recommended Posts

Hey there. New owner here. Bought the boat last summer from a friend and he had all the fluids and impeller changed right before I bought it. I searched and found lots of how to threads but not anything stating how many hours between intervals. I know oil is 50hrs. What about trans, vdrive, fuel filter and impeller?

Thanks in advance for helping a NEWB out!

I do Engine Oil/Filter every year.

Impeller every other year but keep a spare on hand just in case I see my temps creep up. 

Fuel Filter every year since its cheap and easy to replace but probably get away with every other year. 


I used to change the Vdrive/Transmission oil every year but stopped doing that since I would take out oil that looked brand new. I do it every 3 seasons now.
