There's been a large string of failures lately, including mine. Amazon is running low on supply.

So I replaced the battery switch and it basically started to fall apart as I took the mounting screws off. It was together inside by thread. New switches on and electronics seem good but fuel gauge is still pegged to full. if I turn the ignition on and watch the fuel gauge peg full and then unplug the fuel sender it goes to empty. Plug the fuel sender back in it pegs back to full. Replace the fuel sender? My sender is #150984. Dealer says it should be #150982 ��
Thanks in advance

Honestly your dealer should take care of these since the boat is a few days old. Call them and explain everything you found wrong and need it fixed. You weren't aware of these items while on the boat test so you couldn't have taken it off the price.

It is an hour and a half tow to the MC warranty dealer. The dealer I bought from is no longer authorized for warranty work since they recently became a Nautique dealer. I would honestly just rather narrow it down myself and buy the sender. I have a buddy I was sending their way set on a new G25. Needless to see I explained the situation and the fact that they basically said boat sold as is so tough crap and he is using a dealer in TN instead now.

When I buy or help someone buy a new or used boat I tell them to expect it to take 2 seasons to iron out all the issues. It shouldn't be this way but it typically is. Sometimes the issues are small, sometimes not so much. As such in the back of my mind when I'm negotiating the price I try to leave a least a grand in the budget for these items. As much as this is truly a PITA IMO you're still on the smaller side of the scale.

FWIW I'm running through the same adjustment period on the "new to me" boat I picked up at the beginning of July. I pride myself as a person that can pick good boats and was able to negotiate the repair of everything I found wrong with the boat into the price but I missed several smaller items along the way myself. With as many of these that I've done over the years I've learned to expect these setbacks and just move on.

From my perspective you're still on the "not worth the drive" side of the equation. It looks like you've got the gas gauge issue locked down. Order the part and put it past you.

Thanks to dealer in Charlotte I was able to locate a fuel sender and have it shipped. Charlotte Ski Boats. Lukas was a big help.
