    In talking to TXMC last week there is another recall on the fuel system. He said he has over 250 boats outstanding including mine. Some of them they have already touched 3 times as part of this recall. As I understand it:

    1st recall instruction - install new fuel pressure regulator
    2nd recall instruction - add damper (assuming fuel pressure regular had been updated)
    3rd recall instruction - remove damper because some of them were bursting
    4th (and current) instruction - add back improved damper

    Assuming I heard correctly, to be fully compliant your fuel pressure regulator should have been replaced and you should have the non-bursting damper installed. My dealer is waiting on the damper.

    FYI the dealer is having trouble getting the new damper, and he said they are being delivered a few at a time. I would encourage everyone to get ahead of this one as I almost did not have my boat for Memorial day last year.

    Anyone have an "after" repair picture they could share. Had mine done but it doesn't look any different from when I dropped it off. It wasn't mentioned on the invoice when I picked it up, so just want to be sure.
    If it is like the previous Dometic recalls on pumps, there will be a new sticker placed on the pump with a date.

    My dealer said something very similar to that

    I’m concerned about this. We had our recall done a couple of months ago. Now twice I’ve smelled a VERY strong gas odor in the cabin. However when I opened the floor compartments to see if I could smell it below deck I could not.

    Possibly related... I use the fuel computer to calculate usage and when I went to fill up it took over 43 gal but computer said full should be 41. Is that within the margin of error... or is it possible I leaked 2+ gallons of gas?

    Any advice on where to look for or smell for a potential problem with this damper on an x24?

    Nothing builds confidence like a recall turning into a trilogy.

    TXMC just swung by the house and redid mine.


    FYI be prepared for another recall in a few months allegedly

    Thank you for all the information. Seems like a simple fix.

    I have yet to hear from my dealer, so maybe it was done already. I will check tomorrow when I get to the boat.

    Release fuel rail pressure at Schrader valve, disconnect fuel line from bottom of damper, disconnect damper from fuel rail, undo 1 bolt and remove damper then reconnect the fuel line directly to the rail. Done

    Yes, this is getting a bit comical. Really funny if it didn't all sound so dangerous.

    Dealer had my boat over the winter to fix a few warranty items and they did the recall before I got it back a few weeks ago. Then I got a call from the dealer this past Friday that they needed to come out and do another recall to the recall they already did. They came out that day and did it. I didn't ask what exactly either recall involved.

    My dealer did not say anything about that, and I have not seen the recall letter. But he said their tech has done like 60 of these service calls in the last 4 days, so they aren't letting grass grow between their toes. The tech has it down to about a 5 minute procedure now. Frankly, I don't like the idea that a device might fail resulting in a high pressure fuel leak on the engine. I'd be inclined to get the work done asap...
