Deflating rim around cockpit

Post by nicksorrentino » Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:54 am

I have the ADVANCEDFRAME KAYAK AE1012-R and the little tube on one side around the cockpit seems to be deflating. I am a little nervous to take it out of the sleeve to look what the issue is because I am afraid I may not be able to get it back into the sleeve.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get that in and out?

Also if this piece needs replacing can I just order that one part?

If it loses air quickly then you probably have a hole in the tube. If it is over time then the cap might not be sitting tightly enough. You may need just the orange cap then.
