    some will say to get sta-bil into lines but there's no guarantee running to oper. temp will fill the lines.
    Wouldn’t it also be necessary to trailer it for a period to adequately mix the fuel and stabilizer before running? This was part of my procedure when storing any power sports equipment in the past.

    good question and dunno. when we winterize I would add sta-bil, fill the tank and then trailer home so I guess I was doing the same thing but when I winterized my summer cars and motorcycle in wisconsin I just added the sta-bil in the garage and called it a day. never had an issue doing this.

    crazy thing is, my '16 silverado(excuse me as I get nerdy for a sec that I track this), on 11/22/2019 it had 39434 miles. on 10/16/2020 it had 41768 miles. total of 2330 miles in the last 12 months-most all towing the boat(500 miles in oct 20 for a trip). I don't add anything to it and it'll fire right up every time and run like a champ. we only lay up for 3 months-ish here and guessing the boat would be ok but we still add sta-bil to it. creatures of habit and the cost of a new boat I guess.....

    My method.
    10 minutes start to finish not counting an oil change but I did that a month ago.
    Hook it up, run it till the exhaust is pink. Disconnect and call it a day.

    Sonic, I'm in TN too. What's the part list you are using for the container system the antifreeze is in? Where are you plumbing in the hose? What about your ballast?

    Big box stores (HD or Lowes or Amazon) will have this. I made one from:

    5 Gallon Bucket
    Brass Garden Hose Bibb (not the circle turn on/off valve)
    Non-Kink 4-5' RV/Camping Hose with regular garden hose fittings on each end.

    Or you can buy the kit that has all three parts.

    Yeah as MJH said you can build it or just buy the camco kit for 40 bucks here: https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Winteri...6152037&sr=8-2

    I'm not sure if your Mojo has the sea strainer or not but my supra has one of these:

    you just hook the hose in there and close the thru hull valve. If yo have one it will be right above the V-drive.

    I just ran all my pumps until the lines were mostly air. I think it will be fine, we shall see. I may get a wild hair and dump some antifreeze in the overflows and run the pumps in reverse for a few seconds but haven't bothered yet.

    $43 from Amazon delivered to your door is good price.

    The Indmar Sea Strainer Flush Kit is a must add-on if you do not have one. They are appx $100 at most online stores. Probably save 20% if you purchase on sale or black friday.

    I'm going to add these two items to the xmas list. I already winterized myself and pulled the ballast bags. I purged with pink stuff and its covered with 2 fans running on low under a carport. Should have any moisture issues or freezing problems.

    Thanks
