  1. Sounds like light rail it is then. I thought the ride to the stadium seemed like everyday people last time, but I know some sketchy looking people got on and off on the ride back.
  2. Any opinions on best way to get two 17 year old boys a ride to game? They will be staying at a hotel near mall of America. I was going to give them a ride back and forth but it turns out that I cant go and my wife isn't comfortable driving downtown. We rode the lightrail last year but looking for a better option.
  3. If you have an electrical tester see how many ohms there is at the plug in, going to the hub. If it reads 0 then its a broken wire or magnet is bad. I had that problem on my magnum, had to replace the magnet but now it is burnt out again.
  4. I had a 04 Silverado that was a pain for trailer lights. Never really go it fixed, but I believe that there was a bad ground to the harness or just a bad connection. I could grab all the wires on the truck side of the harness and wiggle them around and the lights would work right for a while, only eventually the problem would return.
  5. Anyone else on this motor. It is just annoying the heck out of me when it sits over night it honestly cranks for about 5 seconds before it takes off. I took it back to the place I bought it and since no service engine lights are on they think nothing is wrong. It just doesn't seem right to me that a truck this new should be so hard to start.
  6. I have a new to me 2013 f150 with the 3.5 ecoboost, the question I have is it seems to be fairly hard to start in the cold. It cranks over fast but on the initial startup of the day it takes a couple of seconds of cranking. Is this normal to this engine or does anyone know what might cause this. It has 70,000 miles.
  7. Thanks for the heads up, fun to see some semi local fishing.
  8. It does sound like the voltage regulator failed, which shouldn't be hard to replace. The hard part is going to be fixing the wires and tracking the yellow wires all the way back to the stator just to make sure that they only melted at the splice
  9. Looking for some advice. I have a early 2000 75 merc, and while fishing yesterday the motor began running rough and then stalled. Some smoke was coming from the engine, under the hood. There is 2 yellow wires that run from the stator to the voltage regular, and right at the splice they were apparently extremely hot because they melted and screwed up a bunch of other wires that were bunched together with them. I hope I have all the terminology right. So what went wrong? How do I diagnose the issue.
  10. Karlstad area. I got ahold of some grease and loaded the baits up, now see what happens. How often do you check your baits?
  11. Alright thanks boar, this is in a no quota area and while there are bears in the area I don't know how close I need to be to bring them in. I will experiment a little and thanks for the tip.
  12. Do you guys use any kind of scent attractant? I had very little activity on my sites last year, and was thinking that this year I need to work on a better way to pull them in from a distance. I used a combo of liquid smoke and anise last year. Although it smelled great right away, I don't know how long the scent stays strong.
  13. Thanks for the tip. Good info there
  14. I have a heavily used lawn that has a lot of thin spots and weeds. Would anyone be willing to give a rundown of steps and timing to get a yard shaped up. I think I have read on here that aeration is important in the fall and followed by overseeding. Just looking for some expertise as far as order, timing and importance of steps.
  15. Well apparently if the registered owner just lost the registration card, then all that is needed is a bill of sale from them. This particular one has been passed around a few times without being registered so I think I am out.
