Skis on Traps!

7 posts in this topic

I just picked up a pair of great condition Rossignol 160 downhill skis without bindings. I am going to mount them on my Fish Trap Pro...any suggestions?

I want to keep it simple stupid...KISS!

We put skies on our traps to save the bottoms.Cut them to length ,2 screws countersunk and you should be all set.

Thanks Tank...I was thinking about putting four 4 inch blocks to raise it up a bit!

I was thinking it wouldn't push as much snow if I did this. Plus raise the seat a bit. Then I run into the trouble of the skirt not sealing the edges...I have a few months to weigh out my options confused

Nice idea on the lift kit. That would have to help when pulling in snow. 4 inches might be too much as that might lift the skirt too much. But a 2 inch lift might work well. I'd try it but our two traps stack with just enough room in our Jeeps and fit just right under Billys toneu cover.

Try the lift kit then you could always reduce the height if needed...

I put my skis on top of those worthless runners clam has. Brought it up about half inch but anything is better than those runners . . .I just screwed through the holes that were there.

I have been contemplating rigging up my trap with some type conduit pipe that could easily be raised/lowered for the purpose of easier dragging through deep snow I haven't tried anything yet but was thinking something along the lines of using spring buttons that are currently used or the traps or some type of locking spring hinge

I saw some Guy's at the Silver TA that used your idea Tim. They pulled it all over the place...they also had a machine, so I guess it didn't really much matter.

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.
    • seeing I will not have a bonus tag the does are safe at Ripley but a buck will need to be wall hanger before I shoot 
    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
