  1. look for the big group of people out from Bellaire beach
  2. Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
  3. Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
  4. Sorry you have had such a bad experience with your nils. I've only had great experiences with mine.
  5. Seems a little expensive if its a single axle but maybe not. I've seen guys selling stacks of brakes on craig list before... Go drum. Disc are just going to rust every time out and much more expensive.
  6. I picked up a new 8" K-drill last year and tried out what all the hype was about. It is light and it cuts ok, but I went back to my nils, it cuts faster with less force and only weighs a couple pounds more.
  7. Just curious if you ever weighed your shack to see how close it was to the listed weight?
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Take a look at the Glaciers too. There's been some dealers slashing prices lately.
  12. Nice work! looks like a great setup
  13. Your bed is pretty awesome! thanks for sharing. Got a link for that winch?
  14. shouldn't matter anyway as I read it if its a tip-up just have to be within 200'
  15. Have bluetooth alarms on it
  16. So run a tip-up in your shack
  17. He said the law reads line of sight so...
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Most you should be able to adjust the regulator flow. I would test it in the same condition your operating them in.
  22. 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})
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
