Replacing QD's proved most difficult since the old ones would not come out. In most cases they broke and then it was a matter of cutting the hose a 1/4" or so to get at the broken piece.
Large round electric connector under the stingray (I believe it would be the communication unit) turns counterclockwise to disconnect. Dielectric grease on all electric connectors should help avoid any moisture accumulation. An extra round connector is capped and sitting there so I am not sure of it's purpose.
There is an extra wire not connected to anything, on the right side by the QD's which would appear to be for an additional outlet.
Thanks to Nick and Jim for attending, sharing stories and helping to make it a successful day. Sorry to report that Jim was rear ended on the way home but luckily he is OK!
Come to know that the OC on the RT was able to be programed to read miles or kms but I have understood that the LT's OC is not. Can anyone provide additional insight here?
Would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
