2300 rx surf. Are the trim tabs adjustable?

Postby Adman » Thu Apr 26, 2018 6:47 am

Hi everyone. I just purchased a new 2300 RX surf and hoping somebody could help clear up an issue I’m having with my trim tabs. I’ve noticed that when my ballasts are equal on both starboard and Portside and mostly filled in the center my wave shape and length are slightly different on either side. I’ve used regal view to adjust left and right and also changed position of my passengers. Regardless what I’ve done the starboard side wave has a bit more length, shape and height versus the port side. Is it possibly a trim tab adjustment that needs to be done manually under the boat? I’ve noticed there’s no option for adjusting them on regal view. I absolutely love this new boat however I wish I could create a better ride on my preferred side.

I bet they could add adjustability with a software update but I doubt that happens. I'm still waiting for a clock.

What about weight distribution? To me it could make sense that the starboard side is different because you are sitting starboard. Do you have your gear evenly distrbuted?

Are you sure the bags are filled the same? I ask because I have one that did not empty all the way out. It always has more than the other even tho the gauge says they are the same.

I'm interested to see what you come up with and what your preferred dialed in settings are. I am still hunting for mine.

On a V-drive I would blame prop torque but the 2300 has counter-rotating props right? Could it still be producing that much uneven prop torque?

I have a 2300 RX surf and have any of you figured out your settings for a great wake with great push. If I have myself, and my 3 kids in the boat surfing my wife, I fill all my bags 100% full and have the trim at 12-13% going about 10.3 mph surfing portside. I seem to get a really good wake with good push as well as if my wife is driving and I'm surfing we get the same results. Our kiddos are small so their weight is not much of an influence on the wake. As soon as we get more gear and a few more adults in the boat it seems that my wake goes to crap and I loose most push that I have on the wake, and I have tried to empty bags and re-position passengers. Does any one have any ideas on settings? I have been searching all over for information online and have found none. I have noticed that if we switch the tab to surf Starboard side our wake is much cleaner and has good push on both scenarios, however I don't prefer to surf Goofy. Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks Curtis

I have a regal 2500 surf so it’s a bit different boat - but I run full ballast on all 3 tanks, 10.5 mph and 0% trim and the wave is very good. The more people in the back, all the better. When I run with any motor trim things get worse - you may want to try that if you haven’t already. Again - my boat is longer so I’m sure that makes a difference plus 2000 lbs of water ballast is a bit more than yours I think.

There is a paddle calibration procedure in the dealer screen I think.

Good luck.
