  1. Hitch mounted plow

    That’s the only kind I can find under 2k. Just throw a hitch on the front and your good to go
  2. Hitch mounted plow

    The one I want has a wireless electric winch and I have two heated garages to leave it in. Hitching up looks pretty easy as it has rolling casters on it and I can drop it on a floor jack for moving and raising it. Main concern is I want to bring it to the cabin a few times a year which is 3 hours away and I don’t want to have to trailer it.
  3. Hitch mounted plow

    Looking at throwing a front hitch on my truck and picking up a plow, mostly for my house and a couple others within a few miles of me. Would also like to bring it to the Cabin a few times a year but they all say max travel speed is 45 mph. Is this just due to over heating or are there other issues it could cause? Curious if I could just throw it on the rear hitch for highway driving. That would solve the overheating issue. I have a trailer if needed but would rather not have to drag that around if I don’t have to.
  4. Plugging in pickup

    If you want it for lights look into a photocel timer. Mine turn on at sundown for 2,4, or 8 hours.
  5. Plugging in pickup

    Win some and lose some. I wanted my million dollar idea 'Uber shovels' to take off until I found out someone is doing something similar in other states.
  6. Plugging in pickup

    Pick yourself up a remote outlet for 10 bucks. Leave the remote inside with you and just flip it on an hour before you go out maybe?
  7. Whole house humidifier

    Not just heat, if you have central air it will run off that also though not as well. Usually no real need to have a humidifier run in the summer though around here.
  8. my over 60 year old dad does too.
  9. What did you do to your Camper/RV this week?

    Stan! Links in a first post lately haven't been a promising sign, but I'll comment like you are a real person. I think they have their place however I stay hooked up pretty much all the time and use mine in colder water. Looks like your electric heaters for sale their don't operate well with water temps under 67 which I see throughout a good chunk of the year. Thoughts, concerns or second post?
  10. Dumping Cable for Streaming

    One coax for antenna, but your cable internet is still fed through coax so one would have to be setup on that. You should have all of your lines split in the basement or garage somewhere you could just split the one off for your cable internet and run the rest through antenna. Completely independent but your modem would be in a room that doesn't have TV. But agree to all of your other points. To get comparable service it wouldn't save me much either, so I'll just keep playing the song and dance with the cable company to 'renegotiate' every year.
  11. Discounted Leopard Hunt November 2017 Namibia

    So is that a yes or a no on the squirrel hunt?
  12. Discounted Leopard Hunt November 2017 Namibia

    It really depends on the size of the mount, but can you really put a price on the hunt of a lifetime?
  13. Snowmobile dead battery

    cold or frozen? I did a little research and it looks like stationary batteries do last longer cold, didnt know that. But from what I have found a battery with any kind of connection to the terminals leaches much faster in cold to frozen weather. So maybe just disconnect and your good.
  14. Snowmobile dead battery

    Interesting... The number of cars I've seen not start or hard to start in the winter seem like it points to the cold sapping battery juice. I've seen many batteries go to junk sitting in the winter but have never had an issue with one out on my bench in the summer.
  15. Dumping Cable for Streaming

    I have my own modem and the dvr is free(or baked into the package price) only have the one box for the main TV, dont need them in the bedrooms at all.
