  1. I second rundrave. Don’t forget to tell him to put outlets in the ceiling for the garage door opener(s), hotdog heater, stereo system if up on a shelf, I’d also put in a ceiling fan box or two in right away even if he doesn’t think he’s going to use them. If the building is going to have steel I believe code is conduit or this type of wire needs to be used.
  2. One could buy a igloo for $30 and the other $160 could buy a lot of ice. People don’t need those expensive coolers but if you’re going to buy one get the Yeti. I’m guessing the same guy that has a gloomis rod is the guy with a Yeti. If I could afford a Yeti style cooler but have to worry about where I’m going to get money to fill it.......you’re doing it wrong.
  3. If one has the disposable cash to buy a Yeti knock-off why not just get the Yeti. The other brands just don’t have the “it” factor.
  4. Sounds like they are doing you a favor and giving you time to change your mind.
  5. Well ice castle uses Berkon frames along with Valley. Both pretty good frames.
  6. Like always....I’m living so rent free in your head you have to bring your tears to other sections of the site. Fish on.........
  7. PF “whines” all the time. I’m sure you could collect his tears. I’m guessing they’re a bit sour.
  8. I have this problem from time to time but not often. Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig. Other times it works flawlessly.
  9. I drove a 2017 powerstroke last week. What a beast, quiet, just plain nice.
  10. CCG here is an old tsb. Not for your year but it's the same smoke and mirrors. #PIP4574M: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update Subject: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update Models: 2007 Buick Rainier 2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Trail Blazer 2007-2008 GMC Envoy, Sierra, Yukon 2008 Pontiac G8 2007-2008 Saab 97x with a 5.3L or 6.0L Aluminum Block V8 Engine and AFM (Active Fuel Management) RPOs LC9, LH6, L76, or LFA ---------------------------------------
  11. CCG I'm sorry you're having trouble and no one wants to see another guy having troubles with his vehicles. I'd get rid of the lemon personally. That's what I did with mine. I hope everyone thinking about buying a Chevy or GMC with the AFM reads this or the many, many, many pages on Google about this same issue. The dealers will tell you, "we haven't heard about this issue since 07-09". What a bunch of talk. Now instead of getting rid of this terrible technology they put it in the 6.2. Unless you plan on trading before the warranty goes out buy something different.
  12. This is what I use too. I'm pretty careless with this rod. It lays in the bottom of the otter, sometimes in a bucket bouncing across the lake behind the wheeler. Running and gunning with me is no place for nice rods.
  13. Yes it is the 3.1. And I will check that out tomorrow. Thank you
  14. Not sure if this fix is the same as the gas pedal post but here goes. Sometimes when starting the car it will die without the gas pedal being held in just a bit. If you take your foot off the pedal when it's acting up it will die. However after about 5 to 10 seconds of holding the pedal down just a bit it runs fine and idols great. Sometimes it's in the morning after sitting all night and sometimes it's after driving and sitting for 5 minutes. Sometimes it goes days without acting up. I did discontent the battery for an hour and it ran great for 4 or 5 days after that. Any thoughts? I
  15. Same for me. It's also a plus that the meat isn't like a pincushion full of pellets when using BB like it is with higher loads.
  16. 6.2 has AFM just like the 5.3 so I'm just guessing it's the same poor design.
  17. 60 or so. I'm on roads that 55 is the speed limit most of the time. I don't need air bags nor do I have an equalizer hitch. However a strong cross wind does make it feel soft at times.
  18. My f150 has 275 65 r18 from the factory. Is the spare different
  19. Wait for the Ford dealer to have the buy 3 get 1 free sale. They usually have it a coup,e times a year and then yes get Michelins
  20. Sorry I mean like bowed out or in depending if your looking at the top or bottom of the tire
  21. Sorry a little late to the party but this looks wonderful. Does that frame actually have axels that run all the way across? Do you ever worry about what ever it has bending? Thanks for the information.
  22. This is something I want to do. What do 2 guys do with 20 hogs? Do you have to purchase 20 licenses? What is the cost of something like this?
  23. I'm looking for new at the moment. I've looked at some used on the list that are a year old but people still want new price so why not get the full warranty and know how it's been treated from the day it's taken off the lot.
  24. I'm going to be purchasing a new Ice castle 21 ft Rv edition with hydraulic frame. I'm just looking to see what others have paid as $25,000 seems pretty high. I can buy 1 heck of a camper for that price, but I can't take it ice fishing. We are in no hurry I could even wait until the ice show if it's that much of a better deal. How much "wiggle" room is there? Can I buy direct from the factory? I have seen some carry over models from 2016 but they seem to have one thing or another missing. One might have the insulation package but not have a bercon hydraulic frame. One may have those th
