  1. SO......whats in the rub?
  2. Couple of questions.... Did everything seem to happen at once? They could be related, but could be completely separate. I would focus on the starting and radio issue first.... When you say it "turns over slow like it isn't getting gas"... These are two separate items. I would focus on the speed that things turn over first. I suspect that you have a weak or bad cell in the battery. Have it load tested. Hooking up a cigarette lighter gauge will give you voltage, but isn't going to tell you if you have a bad cell. It could also be a bad grounding strap so check that out as well before changing the switch.... As far as the radio goes... are you sure that all of the connections are hook up correctly? I am thinking that it is probably related to the battery issue (highly likely) or possibly a bad connection on your "constant" power (less likely). Long story short... get your battery load tested and go from there - Just my two cents.
  3. MN and SD combination/sportsman licenses. My parents bought me a lifetime license for my college graduation gift before I changed residency over to SD..... Unfortunately at the time I was a broke college student and couldn't afford to buy the lifetime deer license for $600. Since then have have shelled out over $1500 on my out of state slug licenses.
  4. I have the BigHorn from Rural King. Second choice would have been the PitBoss.
  5. How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
  6. yup....
  7. Wood or metal studs?
  8. I use a kids' mattress rail... The kind that you would use when moving a toddler from a crib to a twin bed. It stores flat and fits under the mattress when I fold the top bunk up. $20 at walmart...

  10. Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
  11. Your best bet is to call Sportsman Cove up in Webster when the weekend gets a bit closer. They are always pretty honest with their assessments, especially when it comes to safety. 605-345-2468
  12. I went through clarkfield outdoors because I didn't have anyone to make the cover... He can make any size you want and they are very comfortable.
  13. ... Probably not worth chancing with the wheel house. We have had a few lakes in east central SD that have had close calls and break throughs. Landings are not going to be good with 40s and 50s through the week.
  14. Termination Strip
