  1. Lowrance depth issue

    i would bet money, the only fix is buying a new transducer. Those problems sound exactly like a bad transducer. Classic older lowrance issue.
  2. Lowrance networking

    Does anyone know if it's possible to network and HDS 7 that has the structure scan module with the older unit of igps 334? And if so what do I need to buy? Thanks!
  3. Lund boat pedestal

    I have a 2007 Lund Pro V, with the driver and passenger seat that are permanently mounted to the floor, and I believe they are air ride pedestals. It seems the drivers side "air ride" is gone, and the seat won't move up or down anymore. Can these things be fixed by someone? or do I have to buy a new one?? Any thoughts?
  4. I have a buddy over in Iraq right now, who asked me to get his sled out of storage and get it all fired up and ready for him to ride when he gets late January. So I picked it up today and it doesn't start. It seems to fire right up if I pour a tiny bit of gas right into the spark plug holes (and then put the plugs back in, obviously) but then it just dies down after 2 seconds. To me it seems that it's not getting any fuel? it's been sitting for 2 winters, I think, so maybe that's partly to blame. But I pulled and pulled, choke, no choke, throttle down etc, and it just won't fire on it's own... anybody have a clue? I might just have to bring it in somewhere. I think it's a '98 Arctic Cat 500cc. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts.
  5. Helmets

    Okay, I am sick of my helmet fogging up... what's the best style helmet out there... would and open face with goggles be better than my closed face, and still stay warm? Any thoughts/advice would be great. LT
  6. Pro-Fuel Reserve on Lund

    Thanks for the responses.... makes perfect sense now!
  7. Pro-Fuel Reserve on Lund

    I've had a Lund Pro-V for a couple of years now, but never relly bothered to figure out how the "pro-fuel reserve" works... Like how do I fill it up, or when can I use it? when to flip the "switch"... Was about 10 miles away from the landing the other day, and didn't have much gas left (made it back anyway), but got me thinking about the reserve... what's the deal? can anyone explain it? Thanks!
  8. Lets talk about the bait fish.

    I can definitely attest to MANY cisco (tullibee) in Gull... almost every winter, while walleye fishing they'll come screaming in half way from the bottom, right above the walleyes. Raise your bait and WHAM! There are some big ones too! Fun fight! Every once in awhile we'll catch one in the fall... when water temps are in the mid-40's. The last two years we've caught quite a few. Last January (around new years) we caught 2 walleye, then all the sudden the tullibee came in and within a matter of minutes we caught about a dozen (tullibee). They we're all 13-20 inches (seriously). If I had a smoker I would have kept a couple, but I don't
  9. Selling boat outright or trading in?

    I would say sell it... I sold my 14ft lund in a week on hsolist when I upgraded boats... In fact I sold my dads boat in the same period... now is the time Good Luck
  10. 99 Polaris XC 500 clutch problem???

    Isn't a clutch, clutched? No, seriously, not sure what you mean by that? I am the second owner, bought it with 400 miles, now has 1100 miles. Only reason I bring it up is because, like I said, my brother's 600 is smoooooth off the line. Do you know if there is an adjustment that can make it smoother? Maybe I actually don't have a problem? Anyone else have thoughts?
  11. Wonder if I have a problem with the clutch or not. When I engage the throttle (revving the engine up) the sled doesn't just gradually move forward... it sort of "kicks in" (jumps, if you will) at 3500 to 4000 rpms. I don't think this is normal... my brothers XC 600 doesn't do this... Is there a tension adjustment for the belt or something? ANY help/advice would be much appreciated!
  12. Lowrance 334 problems

    If the soft reboot doesn't work... Do a hard reboot if you don't mind loosing your waypoints. Hard Reboot: Turn unit OFF. Press and hold the ZOOM IN. Press and hold the ZOOM OUT. Press and hold the POWER KEY. Hold all three keys in until the USA Map appears. This will put the unit in a cold start mode; it may take a few minutes before the unit will lock on. If that doesn't work, be sure you have the latest firmware update. If that doesn't work call Lowrance.
  13. Trailer Vibration?

    Thanks for all the thoughts/ideas... If it stays that way after a couple of trips, I probably get it looked at. Thanks
  14. Trailer Vibration?

    Okay, not sure what forum to post this in, but I'll start here. I hooked my snowmobile trailer up for the first time after pulling it out of storage and when pulling it down the road I get get this weird vibration once I hit 35-50 MPH (like a pulsing vibration)... I thought it might be my truck at first, so I unhooked it and drove around, and the truck is perfect (Chev. Tahoe)... so i hook the trailer back up and it does the vibration thing again. I drove 90 miles, but if I go over like 65MPH it doesn't really do it (it's really subtle). The wheel bearings weren't hot either. About the trailer: it's a triton aluminum tilt bed... when I look in the side mirrors of the truck and look at the trailer I see NO vibration while driving, but still feel it. Any one experience this before or have any ideas? I just lubed up the wheel bearings, but haven't try it since doing that yet.
  15. Why can't I get up?

    I feel your PAIN, I'm the same way. I like my job, but still getting up early for fishing is so invigorating!
