Customer Question

I have a new 250 pros XS. I haven't even been through the first tank of gas. While returning on the lake everything was going well and then the engine felt like it died. I had to return at six miles and hour and couldn't get the rpm above 1100. Took two hours to get back to my marina. Again, brand new Nitro Z21 and brand new engine.

Was there any alarms that went off when the engine did this?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
A long beep.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 month ago.

ok, typically that is for engine overheat. Or overly high voltage. Did you happen to hit anything in the water, like a sand bar or a weed line?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It does it even a week later in idle and no, nothing was hit.

Do you know how the engine one is wired? Is it connected to the T/M batteries at all?
