  1. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Stuck between a rock and a hard place!!!

    Hmmmm!!!! I thought I posted this 2 months ago? The issue has been resolved
  2. Problem with my Marcum Flasher...

    Is your ducer all the way down to the bottom of the hole? Sounds like a dumb question, but now that the ice is so darn thick if you have it halfway down you might be getting a signal that is bouncing off the sides of the hole. (Not to go off or highjack your post),but I got my first Marcum this year and the first time the battery got low it started having major interference issues and I couldnt figure out for the life of me what was going on. Is this something normal with the VX-1's? I used to own a FL-8 and am starting to wonder why I ever got rid of it. At least with them the colors just started to fade and they still functioned fine.
  3. ice auger idle?

    Hey chuck I believe I know exactly what your problem is because mine was doing the same thing as you described, mine was that the throttle cable cut it's way through the plastic handle. Not sure what style of throttle lever yours has though. If that is the problem (causes idle to drop) mine has the plastic lever that is mounted to handle with one screw through the handle to attach it, if you further questions or just dont quite understand what I am talking about email me and you will give you my phone # to better explain how I remedied it.
  4. Wireless Router Issues Please help if you can!!!!!!!!!!

    Some of it does, the older pc I was referring to actually hasnt been used for some time now, but we were thinking of just using to run the router through. Since we still use our newer desktop on a regular basis we thought that it would make more sense to run the router through it instead of using the old desktop. What are these codes you speak of???? Is it just a way to secure our network so others cant use ours or invade our privacy? So if we remove our wireless card from our newer desktop, would that help get it loaded onto it instead? Yes we do have Vista and what are the chances thats the problem? Thanks upnorth for all your help thus far and the rest of you guys too....
  5. Wireless Router Issues Please help if you can!!!!!!!!!!

    Last night we tried it on our old compter and it worked, so we got to thinking since our newer desktop came with the wireless card in it already should we just take the card out of this computer and then try it? Does this make sense to you guys at all? I figured if our old PC doesnt have a card in it and it accepted the program then if this was the case when we removed the card from our newer PC it would probably work in the same fashion.
  6. We purchased a dell last year and we also got a Netgear router with it and have never had to install it, because we never had a laptop until last night. First off I suck at this computer junk, I can find my way around OK, but when it comes to troubleshooting I am lost. I put the disk in and it gives me the option to do the setup and then I click it and nothing happens, so then I went to my computer to try that and no luck either. I called their so-called tech support tonight and waited for over a half hour to be cut off all of a sudden. I know their are some computer savy people on here and was hoping you could give me some other options or do I need to go out and buy a new router? Thanks
  7. I was looking at these yesterday and am thinking of buying one, but not sure what size to go with? I was thinking of running one or two 60 watt light bulbs and a TV/DVD Combo, and once in a while a coffe maker and toaster, but not all at the same time. So given this usage......How big of one do I need?
  8. Funny??? I asked this same question (except it was for the drivers side) and got 1 reply on the subject over the last couple weeks. Is this also the case with my 96 too then?
  9. How big of one do I need to be able to power a TV and dvd player or say a microwave? Have no clue where to start on this subject.
  10. Frying Oil?

    Peanut hands down, it won't breakdown as fast as the others, last time I orderd mine through a friend that has a restaurant and it was labeled heavy duty and this stuff is the schmidt!!! One thing to remember is not to ever get the oil too hot or it will burn and breakdown and your fish or turkey will taste like [PoorWordUsage].
  11. 98 Ford Contour overheating problem

    Alright so today it idled in the driveway for a good 15 minutes and the temp just got to the top of the white mark on indicator and then about 5 miles from home it ran up to the R in normal and continued to hold there for the next 30 miles till I got to school. With it being intermittent, water pump doesnt sound likely to me, so I am wondering is there a way for me to check those sensors without bringing it to a shop? Kinda doubting it. I should also mention that normally the fan used to run at wierd times, such as just after I started it and drove a block or two, sure thought this was strange. Could it have something to do with the head gasket or water pump at all given the way it is acting???
  12. 98 Ford Contour overheating problem

    Well guys tonite it redlined again and come to think of it I never hear the fan run at all, what could be the cause of this?
  13. Glow Jigs for Crappies

    This might be true at times, but the lake I am on this year it attracts them, but then they go away again, so I wouldnt take this to the extreme by saying it makes it EASY!
  14. I will be running 3 camper lights and also my stereo. I am looking for something to keep them up to par while I am gone which is usually a day or two. I have no clue what to look for or how to tell and the reason I put NEED in my post is because of my fund shortage. Thanks
