non inflating honwave - confused!!
Just picked up a new honwave 35 and honda 20hp tiller. Nice little setup.
Issue. It would be really nice to use the boat actually on the water - but I am SURE it needs inflating!
Foot pump supplied has 2 outputs, low and high pressure. Instructions say pump up to half pressure with the low pressure.... then you guessed it.... change the hose over to high pressure and complete.
Brilliant. I can do that I thought.
However.... the low pressure port is always open, so changing the hose to high pressure and pumping just results in a lot of air exiting the low pressure hole. No blank plug, no change over valve, nothing at all. Oh dear. That's not going to work.
Phoned Viking Marine in goole who I bought it from a few days ago, useless. They are a new honda dealer and insulted my intelligence by reading the same pointless paragraph from the manual that I had (surprisingly) already read. They confessed to not knowing how to inflate it, didnt have a clue and they would ring honda after the weekend. I didnt even get any instructions from them, had to get them off the net. When I asked where the instructions were they said "Arent they in the box?" Well I never! I would have never thought of looking in the box! No, they are not in the bleeping box!!!!!
To say I feel ripped off is an understatement. Absolutely no support at all from the dealer, clearly honda dont give them any training or product familiarisation at all. God forbid I get an engine problem....
Does anyone know how to blow this boat up other than with dynamite????
Any help appreciated. thank you.
