I'm pretty sure they no longer make the Focus 5. I've got a couple of buddies that have them and they like them. I think they were dangerous for some reason so be careful. The ones my buddies have, have been through the wringer and still continue to work, very durable.

I own a focus 5 as well. It has been the best heater I have ever owned. It works perfect for my single man fish trap. The only downer is trying to find replacement parts if something goes out. I read some articles about them giving off too much CO2, hoever in a small portable you don't really have to worry about venting issues. I'm glad you got it working again.

There was a lawsuit, 2 people died in a tent w/o proper ventilation. I got one, love it, problem for me was the front half of the "bulb" came off of the business end of the burner assembly, it will still give off heat, but not very efficient, coleman does not sell the burner assembly even though they list it on their HSOforum. I've tried using different wire to create the "mesh" bulb, but so far have failed to get it to last. I would guess some place has a high temp screening material that would be similar to what coleman used to make them, but I have no idea who would sell it, especially in a small quantity.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
