Jabsco Hotshot Wash down kit

I purchased this item in 2009 with the intention of installing it ASAP. As with most things on boat the best plans.....

In 2013 I was ready. We were in Shelter Bay Marina, Panama and I had all the easy electricity and easy access I needed. I pulled the kit out to install it.

It is unusable as supplied. The pump is ok, the connections are ok, the hose just started falling apart. If you really must buy one and you received a GREAT price then IMHO go for it. But do replace the hose. It just isn't up to marine gear standards. Not sure what standards it is up to but If you install it, and plan on using it at a later date and plan on using it in foreign countries don't count on the hose. Jabsco Wash down Kit Grade D
