    Hello All,
    I am experiencing a problem on my '01 Nitro 288. When my front livewell has water in it and I am underway, I get water in my glove box! The livewell is in front of the glove box on the boats' passenger side. If anyone else has encountered this issue or knows of a fix, please let me know.
    Thank You,

    I would check to see if you are overflowing when you plane up, bad seal or something of that nature.

    Nitro 288,
    Can you please tell me if you have the problem of having the bow of the boat go under the front roller when loading your boat on the trailer? I've read on blogs that I may be putting the trailer in the water too deep. Have you encountered this with your 288? I am leaving for the lake tomorrow and I will try not putting in too deep, but I'm not too hopeful!
    Thank you,
    Matthew

    i have not had that problem, and as long as the trailer is not to deep the boat should ride up on the bunks and go right on top of the roller.

    I go a little over half on the fenders which also leaves 8 inches on the top of my bunks sticking out of the water and yes I have a duel axel trailer and I have the 2004 with a Merc 200 EFI

    Matt,

    Is the water entering the lower compartment (glove box cooler) or the upper compartment (where the stereo deck is located)? If it is the lower this is made to fill with water/ice and self-drain. Does this issue only happen when your bow is lifting from acceleration or while on plane as well? What position is your bow livewell toggle switch in?

    You will want to pull out the passenger's foot tray secured by roughly 8-10 Phillips screws. Trace your glove box drain hose to the livewell drain line. It sounds to me like the bow livewell drain line may be plugged downstream of this connection and backfilling up into your glove box.

    Hope this helps,

    -J
