Got Weeds?

Recommended Posts

This was my reward for being the fist one to the access after the lake was chewed up by pleasure boaters and a ton of fisherman yestery.

Not sure how you fellas clean weeds off your trailer when the boat is on but I've found that a hockey stick with one of the bikes hooks on the end of it works great.

Thats crazy, I can see another trailer in the backgound that looks the same way. What if you were loading a boat with a bunk trailer with weeds like that, impossible to remove them all.

Oops - I thought I added the lake to the first post -- White Bear. The access is set up like a funnel to catch all that stuff, especially with a south wind. It was piled in thick enough there that I could barely back the boat off the trailer without gunning it pretty good. Didn't hardly make a cast without pulling floating weeds off my line.

That was my problem a couple weeks ago, different lake but my trailer looked exactly the same. Picked off all the weeds before loading up the boat. Pulled it out of the water and picked off every last bit I could get at the launch and sprayed off a little more at home with the hose. There were still some weeds caught between the boat and the bunks, but they were pretty much weed jerky a week later when I went to launch the boat again.

    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?  
    • They are probably wired differently. I’ve seen this happen.    Actually I had a brand new 2015 Silverado 2500 diesel issued to me as a company vehicle and had issues galore with the factory wiring and the gooseneck trailer I was pulling. It was the biggest nightmare I’ve ever had and it was all with the factory Chevy wiring and integrated brake controller.
