It appears to me you have to be a dealer to order. Is that correct or did I miss something.

the original one had an orange light that would be one when the lights were working and off when nothing worked,you could use a voltage tester to see,not sure what they are supposed to be putting out,yes it looks like you have to be a dealer to order,look for the nearest dealer,thats where i got mine

Parts Unlimited is a dealer supplier. You're correct, you must be a dealer.

Garym we'll have a look at it. Could be the vr but I'm thinking a connection or broken wire before that or just after. We have a couple bone yards around the area that will have a vr if thats what you need.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
