    2012s used a separate CAN slave module to control plug'n'play ballast and surf tabs. I'm guessing that your screen just sends a CAN signal out when trying to control surf tabs.

    When I first got my boat we were running over 4k lbs of ballast plus ppl, and the pp struggled a lot with the stock 13.7x17 prop. Switching to a 15x13 made all the difference in the world. You probably don't need that aggressive, but a pitch in the 14s would probably help a lot.
    Good call on the prop pitch. I'll crawl under there and see what it has on it now. Also, even though my boat doesn't have Gen 1, there are tab setting in the cruise control so I should be able to control all the GSA stuff off the main screen.

    No attitude plate on this one, but we are looking at adding GSA which should give us the capabilities of auto launch I believe.

    I honestly don’t know what pitch prop is on the boat. It came with it when I bought it. I does take forever to get on plane, especially with people in the boat.

    Mine came with a low pitched prop (14.75 diameter x 13 pitch) which would pull stumps if needed (great for full ballast) but had a hard time cruising with. I switched it out to the original factory spec (15.5 pitch) and it does take a bit more effort with full ballast, but cruises great. Probably ideally would split the difference if I wanted to throw another $500 down, but I’m good [emoji846].

    I have the paddlewheel and haven't had any issues since I first bought the boat. I think your settings still need fine tuned.

    You don't have a really high pitched prop, do you?

    Lots of cruising and finding the planing point of the boat will help you find your ideal rpm. Mine efficiently cruises at 26mph @3600rpm with the whole crew and cargo.
    I need 4000rpm for 30mph and I don’t usually go faster than that unless taking evasive maneuvers [emoji57]
