  1. Older Mossberg a friend has. Will not work the action at all when fired. Even with 3" mag. Single shots OK, but action does not even move. Any ideas?

    Otter lodge in 6'4" ram box

    My Otter Lodge fit fine in my 2011 Dodge. Took up all the space, but it fit. Have not tried my 2014 yet. Supposedly has same box.

    Salem ice cabin

    Picked up a 8x16 this year. First wheelhouse for me. It is a bit if a pig to tow. I think a equalizer hitch would make a big difference. Yes, the hydraulic jacks could be a bit faster, and it is faster is you jack them up with the generator attached. Or plugged into your truck. But it sure does beat manually cranking it! Wish it had a couple more windows though. And the window in the door has frosted glass?? Mine had one of the optional bunks. Ended up removing it as it blocked half a window and took up space. Cots work just as well. Rubber floor is nice, easy to clean up, no stink in carpet later.

    Anyone know what lake this is?

    From the traffic, it could be Rush.

    Mr. Heater problems...again?

    Of the 5 Buddies I have at home (1 Big, 4 regular) only 2 work. Anyone ever replace the ceramic element in a buddy heater? I have a brand new one that worked great for about 5 minutes. Then it was knocked off its perch and hit the ice, broke the element. I can order a replacement element online, but I cant really see how its replaced.

    Smoking Prime Rib for Xmas

    speaking of counter top roasters. I have one of those "showtime" rotisserie ovens and I'd like to do a prime rib in it for new years. Any one have any experience in doing this? I got this from a friend and have never used this oven before.

  9. Still have it and its in my way! If It gets a bit warmer this weekend I will try to get some pics of it setup in the Otter.
