Broken Marcum VX-1

9 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I bought a Marcum from a guy in Minnesota during the off season, and had it out for the first time last night. He said it was less than a year old, and it looked to be in great condition. I went to set it up, and the connection to the battery broke. This guy must have jimmy rigged it a little bit, so I wouldn’t notice the connection was clearly busted. Anyway, is there anything I can do for this? Thanks for your help!

If it's the connector on the wire, it's an easy fix. Get some wiring plyers and crimp a new one on. You can find the connectors at any hardware store.

It isn't the battery it is one of the connectors that attach to the battery.

like said above, you should be able to strip the wire and crimp a new one on.

Should be an easy fix

You don't even need crimping pliers.....most any pliers would work. Not that big of a deal.

I'd love to have the LX-5 but my VX-1 worked pretty good for me last year. I added a used LX-3 this year but haven't gotten it out yet.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
