Default Reverso automatic outboard flushing system

First off I know I can climb the transom and attach the hose or use a two way valve to flush both at the same time.

Please comment on any experience, good, bad or otherwise with this product.

Never heard of that setup before although I have and really like Reverso's built-in twin inboard oil change gear pump system.

This looks like an overdue slick idea for outboard folks. They offer systems for 1 or up to 5 outboards and for multiple engines it will flush the 1st then automatically switch to the 2nd and so on, and flush time can be programmed.

Presumably it could be plumbed into an onboard FW tank if large enough and flush time was limited , or of course direct to dock or house water with a quick-connect.

Draws max 3A at 12v.

It's probably a time saver and very convenient, especially if your boat is not on a trailer.
My boat is on a trailer so I bought this hose manifold for my triples and I can flush all 3 at once.

No experience yet but having one installed on my everglades 435 that will be plumbed to the fresh water tank. Looking forward to flushing with just a push of a button.

I looked at this also as flushing is a pain on my lift. The only thing I don't like about it is that it flushes only one engine at a time. I like to start the flushing on both engines right before I turn them off so I know the thermostat is still open. I would need two of these to make it optimal, or split the hose on the outlet of the reverso pump but that may not provide the pressure needed?

I made up a simple Y-connecter with short lengths of hose with quick-connects (on the Y-hose and also on the flushing hoses of my Yamaha F250's). So every time I come back I just attach the hoses and flush both motors for 15 mins+ while I sort out everything else... Couldn't be easier.

My neighbor just had the system installed on his boat with quad power. He loves it. Several guys in my area with twins and triples have gone to it as well. It makes flushing a no brainer.

I've had one for a couple of years. Great time saver as I can flush while hosing off boat. Also turns off by itself so I can set it and go inside and cool off. Come back out later to take pressure off hose. I like it.

They make some very cool systems. My uncle has their diesel fuel polisher on his big boat.

The thermostat bypass lets you flush engines while hot or cold, lifted or vertical. They make flushing my engines as easy as connecting garden hose, turning on the water flow and pushing the actuator button. Outboards are expensive, flushing with fresh water helps prevent corrosion. Anything that makes it easy is good in my opinion.

I wet slip. I use a 3/4" hose to make sure I have enough flow to a 3/4" "Y" I made from PVC to two hoses that I have quick disconnects on. I threaded the other end of the quick disconnects on the the Yamaha flush hoses. I hook up both hoses to the engines while they are all the way down. I flush for 10 minutes then lift them straight up and flush for another 10 minutes. They both pee out the pee hole from dockside water. After the 20 minute flush I disconnect and wash down the boat. I have 185 hours on the engines and I have checked my anodes twice. at the first 100 hour and I recently did a short 100 hour at 70 hours because of fuel in the oil. They are showing wear so I know they are working. I checked the thermostats and poppets, they were clean. It seems my system is working.

^ use what makes you happy. I like just connecting a hose and pushing the button. I saw bunch of boats (Regulator, Whaler, Jupiter, Azimut, etc) at last week's Stuart Boat Show that come from the factory with the Reverso system.

The last of this thread's posts was in January. Any further experiences? I am considering for twin Yam 300s. Anyone encounter any warranty or service issues?

How does it work with Yamaha's? Currently I have to unscrew the tubes on he SB side of motors, attach hoses to flush, then reattach the tubes. I always lose a gasket (falls into water and sinks) when re-attaching the tubes - PIA! There has to be an easier/better way.

I’ve had it for a while now. Had a leak develop in the unit and Hodge Marine took care of it under warranty. It’s too easy to use, flushes my triples drama free
