EVINRUDE E-TEC G2
10 QUICK TIPS
1. I-TRIM ACTIVATION
Your outboard is equipped with i-Trim, a trim assist feature. By default, this feature is disabled from the factory. Use the Evinrude ICON-Touch or ICON CS digital display to enable i-Trim.
*IF YOUR BOAT IS NOT EQUIPPED WITH AN ICON DIGITAL DISPLAY, YOUR DEALER MUST USE EVINRUDE DIAGNOSTIC SOFTWARE TO ENABLE THIS FEATURE.
IMPORTANT: Use of the trim/tilt switch to manually adjust the outboard trim angle will temporarily deactivate i-Trim. To restore i-Trim functionality return the engine to idle rpm and engine to a full down position.
2. DYNAMIC POWER STEERING (DPS) ASSIST LEVELS
Your outboard may be equipped with Dynamic Power Steering (DPS). DPS offers three power steering assist levels: Minimum, medium and maximum. The factory default assist level is “Minimum”.
Use the Evinrude ICON-Touch or ICON CS digital display to change the power steering assist to the desired level.
*IF YOUR BOAT IS NOT EQUIPPED WITH AN ICON DIGITAL DISPLAY, YOUR DEALER MUST USE EVINRUDE DIAGNOSTIC SOFTWARE TO CHANGE THE POWER STEERING ASSIST LEVEL.
Flush the outboard with fresh water following use in brackish or polluted water to minimize the accumulation of scale and silt deposits in cooling system passages.
The outboard must be placed in the (down) position in a well ventilated area, be sure the cooling system is drained completely. Never place the gear case higher than the power head. Any water remaining in the exhaust passages can run into the cylinders and cause serious damage.
4. BATTERY INSTALLED WINGNUTS
DO NOT use wing nuts on battery connections even if they came with the battery. Wing nuts can loosen and cause errant warning signals or electrical system damage.
5. EMERGENCY START PROCEDURE
In the event network communication between the remote control and the engine EMMis disabled, back-up remote control function is provided using the NMEA 2000 network.
6. WATER PRESSURE
An optional water pressure gauge is recommended to monitor cooling system pressures. Noticing changes of 3-5 lbs in water pressure can help prevent engine overheating. The water pressure sensor must be installed correctly to ensure the most accurate pressure readings.
NOTE: USE OF EVINRUDE DIAGNOSTIC’S SOFTWARE IS REQUIRED TO ACTIVATE THIS FEATURE. SEE YOUR AUTHORIZED EVINRUDE DEALER FOR THIS SERVICE.
7. SHORT-TERM STORAGE
Short-Term Storage refers to “Between uses”. If you must tilt the outboard to remove it from the water, lower it and allow the cooling system to drain completely as soon as you clear the launch area. Between uses, store your outboard in a vertical position to prevent water ingestion via the engines exhaust system. If you cannot store your outboard in a vertical position, be sure the cooling system is drained completely.
8. LONG-TERM STORAGE (WINTERIZATION)
Winterization prepares your outboard for long-term off-season storage. During winterization, the engine is “fogged” with extra oil to coat internal engine components. Winterization requires a simple yet, specific process of steps.
NOTE: THE EVINRUDE ICON TOUCH DIGITAL DISPLAY PROVIDES A ONE-TOUCH WINTERIZATION. SEE THE ICON TOUCH USER’S GUIDE.
9. PROPELLER SELECTION
To select the correct propeller for your boating application, your boat and outboard MUST be water tested. See your Dealer for assistance.
IMPORTANT: The correct propeller for your boat, under normal load conditions, will allow the engine to run near the midpoint of the RPM operating range at full throttle.
10. FUEL ADDITIVES
Evinrude 2+4 Fuel Conditioner will help prevent gum and varnish deposits from forming in fuel system components and will remove moisture from the fuel system. It can be used continuously and should be used during any period when the outboard is not being operated on a regular basis. Its use will reduce spark plug fouling, fuel system icing, and fuel system component deterioration.
