    I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.

    The 2 relays that I have for reverse are outside of and right next to small fuse box. Fuse box has 3 block fuses/relays and 5 or 6 mini fuses inside of it

    I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves

    Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods.

    Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner

    Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.

    Is that a sign of an early spring?

    Its a good thing you were paying attention as things could have been a lot worse for the snowmobiler.

    Trails just got groomed over here in Wright county. Fist time in 4-5 years. Would be nice to get a little more snow on top of them and hope the weather cooperates for a while.

    Guy owns it that has business there. Leaves it there pretty much year round. I guess they just plow around it. Surprised no one has ran off with it but its been in the same spot for a couple years. He said it always starts right up in the spring.

    Replacing snowmobile trailer deck?

    Need to replace snowmobile trailer deck as it was getting a little soft last year. What would you replace it with. It has some type of plywood on it now not sure how thick as its still in storage. That has held up pretty well for a lot of years but due for a change especially now that I have a heavier sled.Its a Triton trailer.

    Replacing snowmobile trailer deck?

    Cant recall for sure but maybe I was able to flex mine enough to get ends in with 5/8 not sure if u can with 3/4. Either way there isn't hardly any weight of the sled that far up and if u can get a 1/2 inch on each side u should be fine.

    Replacing snowmobile trailer deck?

    I think I slid mine in from the front. Some pics would help

    Replacing snowmobile trailer deck?

    Also glad I went with 5/8 as it was very little more cost wise and a lot more sturdy than 1/2 inch.

    Replacing snowmobile trailer deck?

    Cant recall right now and to cold to go look. But basically just used the old deck for a pattern. I did use 5/8 vs 1/2 inch plywood so I had to reduce about an inch on the sides of the sheets to fit into the channel on the sides. Same with 2x8 piece up front but other than that mine layed flat as you can see in the pics.Yours maybe different but should be able to pattern it off old deck.

    The groomers want the sleds to pack things down and get things froze up first. Hopefully they can get out soon. With a little notice I might be able to run up and take a ride during the week and avoid the weekend traffic. Im sure there will be plenty of people heading up there next weekend

    Just got back from up north on the range. Wasnt sledding but there were people that were. Will be good as the snow needs to get packed down to freeze swamps etc. so the groomers can get out. Some cold weather the next few nights should help with that. About a foot of snow up in the virginia area. Hopefully LoonASee will chime in with a report from the north shore soon as they got a lot of snow there. My sled is loaded up in the trailer just itching to hit some trails soon.

    Should be getting 2 of my sleds out of storage in the next week or so and have to bring my other one back from up north to repair. Hoping for a snowy winter. Also cut a trail threw the woods at my place up north for easy access to the snowmobile trail.
