Marcum Service

Recommended Posts

What's the scoop on the Marcum service centers these days? I stopped by one up in Brainerd 5 or 6 years ago. Is that still there? I have an LX5 that likely needs a transducer, but I'd like to have them take a look at it to confirm before I drop $100 on a new one.

There isn't one in Brainerd anymore as that was the old owner of Marcum (Nature Vision) and they aren't around anymore. Versa Electronics is the owner now and they are off of Quebec Ave down in St.....Paul?????

I keep hearing this about non call backs. I'm going to do a test and see how long it takes. I will start a new thread, I do have a Marcum. Most products these days have some reminder in the owners manual to contact the mfg not the retailer for customer service. Frankly with my Marcum I'd call Reeds before the mfg, little more of a relationship they have than a sole person.

Understand. Had several questions and just went back to Marine General and they helped but still looking for one more answer. Have a LX 7 one month old. Maybe it is just me, still trying to dial it in, but my target marks are huge even when using a small jig and waxie. Was on LOW this weekend using a Demon and the head, and my jig took up almost two feet on the scale. Also a small split shot would show up large. Tried all the adjustments still no luck. Sen - 0 Target 0-10 no help.

I have had reason to contact them three times in the last two months, one phone call and two emails. The phone was answered the fourth ring and the emails within a day. Don't know what I did right. All problems resolved.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
