The manual is a bit unclear as to what can appear in the water separating filter. Am I to assume that any fluid collected in the canister is contaminated water/fuel?  I recently experienced engine failures. Engine would restart, then fail. Took it to the local yacht yard and they claim that the water separating filter was not installed correctly and was sucking in air. Not sure how that happened as I had not checked the filter since spring, 2017 and the failure was late summer, 2018. I used the tool to reinstall. Admittedly, the engine (2004 250 hp Verado 1250V23DD, ser. No.0T980042 six cylinder), only gets about 30 hours a year..

The sensor at the bottom of the canister is what sets the alarm. When the liquid around the sensor reaches a certain level of conductivity it sets the alarm.  The filters doing get messed up with ethanol fuel and it's possible that maybe it warped enough to allow air in. If ur gonna have her sitting that long id close my tank valves and run it out of fuel.
