  1. I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot. The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market. It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame. I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process. A video of it operating steps would be nice too. It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.
  2. Any thoughts on the new CORE-ICE 6.5′ x 12′ Adventure Trailer. Looks like a great design! Is this the first year for them? I don't find much on the web about them.
  3. I believe you can not put "fresh water" from the lake in your minnow bucket before you head home. That would be transporting lake water. Treat your city water, keep them cool and they will last for a long time.
  4. Has anyone mounted a flip over portable style shelter on to a trailer? If so could you post a picture? I was having a few beverages in the garage last night while getting my hard water gear together when I noticed my Clam thermal X would mount perfectly off the back of my trailer. Any thoughts? Tom
  5. The performance is not bad. I was just thinking a little more torque could come in usefull when fighting the current.
  6. Any tips for picking a propeller for a Yamaha 15hp on a 12ft alum boat that runs in the river. At this time it has a 9.25 x 10.5 alum prop. It is getting a little beat up and I'm looking to replace it. I'm not sure if it would be to my advantage to change the prop pitch or not. any ideas? Thanks, Tom
  7. UV is the way to go. It's charge is stronger and lasts longer!!
  8. Well, I went with the Richter. Great anchor!! I was very impressed with how well it held in current and wind. I will give it the thumbs up to anyone looking for a new anchor. Thanks for all the info.!
  9. Thanks for the info. I need to get to mills and pick one up I think.
  10. Thanks guy's. That anchor looks great! Is there any problem getting it unhooked from the bottom of a river?
  11. What is everyone using for a anchor in the river. I have a small 12' boat that I use a bell style anchor. In curent this does not hold very well at all. I have seen some river anchors that look like when they dig into the bottom you would have a hard time getting them up. Thanks
  12. Where is the primer bulb/pump located?
  13. I have amsoil in it. I might need to just clean the carb, as it had not ran for a long time before I got it. The pilot jet might be dirty. Thanks for the input.
  14. Does anyone adjust the carb on their rancher 350 to help it run/start better in the cold weather? I was thinking of going up one pilot jet size and adjusting the air mix screw. Any advice would be great. Thanks, Tom
  15. I have the Moose v-bars. Part# M91-60009. On a 03 rancher 350es.
