    Ice Castle Spare tire carrier

    Give miltona blacksmith a call. He can fab anything you can dream up (also charges reasonable prices). I know he builds tire carriers for some of the wheelhouse MFG's

    When to buy wheelhouse

    You'd have to visually inspect the pads. Some guys like to crank on trailer brakes so they can wear down fast if people do that. That said you should be able to get 15-25,000 miles out of a set if used properly. for bearing sizes just take them into northern tool they should have what you need.

    Clam Pop-up Screen Tents

    My friend has had one for 3 years. Its one of the only clam products I would recommend. They are pretty awesome. They hold up in complete downpours and some pretty decent wind storms. Get the one with zip down sides if you can afford it.

    Take a look at the Glaciers too. There's been some dealers slashing prices lately.

    Unattended Lines?

    shouldn't matter anyway as I read it if its a tip-up just have to be within 200'

    Unattended Lines?

    He said the law reads line of sight so...

    Unattended Lines?

    LOL I just got checked yesterday and asked him this same question. I asked if i had pagers on each line could I keep them down. He said as the law is written a Rod or rattle wheel is considered a line down and you must be able to visually see the line at all times. Different from a tipup where you must be within the vicinity but you don't need a constant visual on them. So I'm thinking I may just set up my tip-ups inside my shack with beepers when I'm not in there
  13. open the front cover and remove the panel in the center that extends under the headlight. The fuse/relay box is under there. There's three relays you want to replace, Its the fuel pump, EFI and chassis relays.
  14. I have a Polaris 570 with power steering. Two problems with this atv you will have but its a simple fix. One the relay's are not sealed and have issue sub zero degrees. Pop in these relays and your issue will be solved. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077V2TBM9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The second issue is the battery capacity (the location is also dump) buy a larger capacity battery (Polaris sells a kit for this). As for power steering its nice but not needed and if your trying to stay on the cheap you can always add it later. For the 450vs 570 The 450 is a really capable machine and has the same long block as the 570. There's guys out there that can reflash the computer to make them put out what the 570's do for $430. http://shop.rvsperformance.com/Sportsman-450-ECU-Tuning-2016-ECU-PSPTS-450.htm Lastly if get a Polaris or any CVT atv get in the habit of checking the moisture drain on a regular basis. Snow powder tends to get in there with no where to go. My tracks don't help the matter

    Is there a home test for a regulator?

    Most you should be able to adjust the regulator flow. I would test it in the same condition your operating them in.

    Is there a home test for a regulator?

    IMO you would have two things that can affect regulator output. Cleanliness of the regulator (orifice) and temperature (causing the diaphragm {age} to be stiff and not allowing flow along with the propane not vaporizing to a gas as easily{tank size can also come into play here})

    Engel bait coolers

    I use to fill the tray about half full with water and a few minnows being it was a little quicker when you had a hot bite. But yeah the tray is a waist and I normally don't bring it with.

    Electric Trailer Jacks

    This is far fetched but I wonder if your battery can't supply the current needed to operate both of them at the same time. If you have another battery to swap in there I'd try it.

    Electric Trailer Jacks

    I would say your wire size is too small and or too long of wire run causing too much resistance. Go to an 8 or 6 gauge wire and you should be fine.

    Electric Trailer Jacks

    I'll add to the above that you want to fuse as close to the power source as possible. This prevents your wiring from catching fire.

    Atv for towing shack

    I've seen a few of the newer Polaris 570's for sale around 4-4500 range. I own one myself. The only issues I've had is the stock battery is junk and a cold non start issue that's been fixed with GM relays.

    most all of St. Pauls storm drains are marked that they drain to a lake or river. At least all of them in my neighborhood are.
