There may be times when you choose to leave your Switch in the water for a short period of time. In such cases, there are a few things to keep in mind. Leaving your pontoon in the water will require more frequent deep cleanings to remove algae buildup and other marine debris. Keeping your Switch stationary in the water for extended periods of time will cause small marine contaminants to work their way into critical components, potentially causing premature wear or significant damage to the pump and cooling systems.
Maintaining your Switch will likely require more effort if you choose to leave it in the water. The marine environment can be harsh on mechanical components, and they'll need to be carefully inspected at more frequent intervals and potentially replaced sooner rather than later.
Whether you're using your Switch in fresh or saltwater, it's always recommended to take it out of the water and keep it on a trailer or lift. This makes it easier for you to ensure everything is clean, in good condition, and ready for your next ride.
