  1. Who makes a good quality, accurate tire pressure gauge? My old dial gauge has seen better days and looking for a replacement.
  2. How to monitor Temp remotely?

    The Freeze Alarm I have will call for low temp, loss of power and low battery. I think there is also an add on for mositure, in case sump goes out. It's programmed to call 3 phone numbers.
  3. On board chargers

    I have a Dual Pro that has been working for 13 years.
  4. Gotta strike while the iron is hot right?

    I have the Honda 2000 and a Yamaha 3000. Both are very nice, quiet, reliable. The 3000 gets pretty heavy but does have wheels.
  5. Shotguns are not registered so the 870 is not tied to your father. It does not matter that you are borrowing the gun. Here is the Canadian Border Services HSOforum describing importing a firearm: You will need to complete this form and make 2 copies, but DO NOT sign them until you are in front of an agent at the border:
  6. I had a 1998 and sold it with 270,000 miles and it was still running strong.
  7. Costa Lenses

    I have glass lenses in mine but I don't think it is the 580 level. I prefer glass over plastic. Am aware of a place that has occasional deep discounts on Costa glasses (under $100), PM me for details, can't post a link here.
  8. Could you PM your contact information, would be interested in seeing both items.
  9. I bought a 99 Tahoe with 350 engine three years ago, had 117,000 miles. Has 147,000 now. Have not run across any of the listed issues. Did have pinholes in the A/C line to the rear, cut line and capped it. Eventually replaced compressor as well. Other
  10. plastic/vinyl storage shed?

    I have a 6' x 10', not sure of brand, think it came from Menards originally. Bought used about 5 years ago from someone on this site. So far it has held up fine, I brush heavy snow off the roof.
  11. Buying ATV from private party

    DMV required a bill of sale before they would transfer registration when I bought mine.
  12. 09 Bearcat auger holder

    I have 2010 Bearcat and am installing a front receiver hitch and then plan on mounting the Digger carrier to that.
  13. Snowshoes

    Sierra Trading Post dot come usually has some at a deep discount. I have some Redfeather brand shoes with a tail. Work pretty good. The binding systems have changed since I bought mine so you would have to check their site to choose some. I am 250# or so and the shoes are 30" with a tail. They have a "live" hinge so kick snow up on your pant legs - wear gaiters. I do sink into the snow but don't "post hole" like I would without the shoes. Much less tiring to wear shoes. The 30" length and having a tail makes the shoes very manuverable in cattails, etc. I've found round heel or longer shoes may float better but are also tougher to use in tight conditions
  14. Firestone Destination A/T

    I have them on a 99 Tahoe with about 17K on them so far. They do not show much wear. Have handled well in mud, snow, rain but I have not driven on a snow covered lake with them.
  15. STUCCO-Can it be painted?

    I sprayed mine with Latex paint 21 years ago, two coats. Have not had a problem yet.
