RT 21 EC Listing

Postby MikeK on Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:09 pm

I've owned my 2013 RT 21 EC for several months and it list to port. Could it be because of the A/C battery's weight or the fresh water tank? Could there be something more serious?

I believe the fresh water tank and the A/C batteries are on port side..... so yes, that is the likely cause for your port listing.

Suggest you move any heavy stores to starboard in the transom locker.

Does it list to port when you're at the helm on starboard side ?

My 21 EC also listed to port due to the A/C batteries. My fix to the problem, I moved the starting battery to where the A/C batteries were and I installed two golf cart batteries where the house and starting batteries were located. There is very slight list but I can tolerate it probably due to the water tank.
