Malibu Winterizing

We haven't had a hard freeze yet in Central Texas, but it's coming. We've had a ton of customers who have been very proactive and gotten their Malibu's in BEFORE the weathermen around here go crazy with the coming apocalypse of freezing temps.

We have also been helping customers over the phone with a do-it-yourself quick winterization. Doing one of these on a Malibu Wakesetter, V Ride or Sunscape is pretty easy. The most important thing is to get the water out of the engine block, exhaust manifolds and the internal circulating water pump. If not, this water may freeze if the temps drop into the low 20's for a prolonged period of time. When the water freezes, it expands and can crack the engine block or the manifolds. Big $$$.

If your season is over, bring your Malibu in and we will do the above, along with change your oil and stabilize the fuel. If your going to try to go all season, drain your block and manifolds!
