What type of maintainance is normally required after an outing and does the maintainance differ for fresh water running versus running in a pool.Greg W

Here you go, I think this info may be of some help, very detailed in most areas of rc/submarine operations. IMO ... ling-files
Ready to run submarine, General Instructions, and open attachments ( RTR mission instructions )

I believe you will find the info you are looking for specifically if you Scroll down to " Post Mission " Hope this helps,

Greetings Captain,
This Is What I Do After Running My Boats.
(This Is My Decision And Opinion Only)
1. Remove Boat From Water - Radio Is Still On!
2. Open Hull Casing And Check For Debris From Water.
3. Open Switch Seal And Turn Off Power, Then The Radio.
4. Switch Transmitter To Off.
5. Reseal Power/Receiver Hatch.
6. Rinse Hull Interior ( Flush With Clean Clear Water / 2 Tbs Lysol )
(Don't Think There Are Not "Live Beasties In There - Remember Biology Class )
7. Rinse Exterior Hull And Allow To Air Dry - Dependent On Weather
( If It's Raining..... Forget It!)
8. Vent Pressure Vessel Inside Ballast Tank..... Safety Issue!
(Manually OperateThe Linkage)
9. Remove Switch Seal Hatch.
10. Remount Upper Superstructure And Pack It Up!.
Boat Is Ready For Charging And Repairs If Necessary. :D

Hi Greg,
Just as an add-on.
The basic maintenance will be the same for pool or pond. The only difference being the pond you normally have more klingons to remove from the hull, and pools usually require a fresh water rinse and a good metal treating agent like Stuph or Corrosion-X because the chemicals in the water will adversely affect the metal more than the pond water will.

Thanks for the advice. Hopefully I'll be ready to put it to use after our next run in a couple of weeks. Greg
