Time to Charge your Batteries!!!

13 posts in this topic

Take a minute this week to pull your ice gear's batteries out and give them an up-charge. Can't hurt! While your at it, give your auger a quick start to keep her fresh and diagnose any potential problems while it's still warm out. The days are getting shorter already!

give your auger a quick start to keep her fresh

I'm going to show your post message to my wife, she came out to the garage just the other day, wondering what I was doing...Here I was, mid 80's outside, running the ice auger. I got the famous.... shake of the head. My response...A couple extra rev's!!!!!

Batteries good to go. Auger is barried with the ice gear so won't be firing it up. But I fogged the engine and ran the engine dry with stablizer in the gas so should be good to go come winter.

Don't forget to disconnect the battery on your flasher/camera. The battery indicaters will run them down over time. Friend toasted his battery last year when the kept it hooked up on his LX-5 over the summer.

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
