2017 23LSV surfgate stopped deploying

Recommended Posts


Hi folks - while on the lake today, we went to go switch the surfgate from left to right because the surfer wanted to change sides. He fell, we circled around to go pick him up, switched the surfgate sides again, and then they stopped deploying completely. Both surfgates work in service mode... any quick fix ideas? We need to use the boat this weekend and can't have it in the shop for a long time looking for a fix. Unhook the battery and rehook? unplug wires and replug in? Any thoughts?
