Bargain Cave Is Going Away.

Recommended Posts

Was just out to the Cabela's in Rogers and they are clearing out and closing their bargain cave.  I think I have only bought two things in there in all the years they have been open so it's not a real biggy to me.  Thought I would pass it along.

If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.

 

The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.

I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.

Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?

Bargain cave was always good for boots/clothes/random articles of clothing etc. Fishing and hunting items were never really good. Seemed to me it was all Cabela's brand stuff. Maybe because they deal with their returns, if you had to return a Shimano or St Croix, you would be dealing with their customer service i suppose. Over the years Ive only grabbed a few items from them, my favorite probably being a sleeping bag. 🤣 Good quality and was cheap. Never had luck with any boots my size, or any decent jackets. I had heard from a friend you could actually bargain their mark down price for even another 10-15% off. Where is all the returned stuff going to go???

Just visited the Cabela's out in Rapid city over the weekend. I am not sure what it was specifically but I didn't like the layout of the store and it just felt like they were missing lots of stuff. I wasn't impressed with the changes that Bass Pro did to that store.

 

It is a little smaller compared to others but I just felt it was lacking. I will try to visit the Mitchell, SD here in the next week or so and see if I feel the same way. Hopefully its just the case  with the Rapid store as I have always found what I needed at the Mitchell store.

Having recently visited both the Rapid City store and Mitchell store here in SD I cant quite put my thumb on it but I completely dislike the layouts of both stores and anything outdoor related has taken a backseat to women's apparel and other casual clothing.

Got a Cabela's 2018 Christmas catalog yesterday in the mail it is 180 pages. The first 70 pages is household and casual wear. Other than some smoking equipment and a few pages of camo and fishing stuff its basically got nothing related to hunting and fishing. I gave up trying to find anything related to ice fishing.

Welcome to Dick's 2.0 where they sell a little bit of everything and specialize in nothing!

Dick's suks, if anything find a SCHEELS store.  Cabala's knows that around Christmas after most of the Hunting season is done. It's time to start selling to Woman until Ice fishing kicks in! 😉  On a side note I went over to the new Sportsman's Warehouse and it's ok but the layout is not as good as their old one and they may not have as much of something's.

We have a Scheels here but they know they got a monopoly and prices reflect it. I wont set foot in Dick's or give them my business online. We used to have Sportsmans Warehouse but they closed here a number of years ago. 

 

We are getting a Fleet Farm in the near future I welcome them to town and hope they give Scheels some competition. I buy most of my fishing equipment from the local shop instead of the big box stores but I hope they don't suffer with fleet farm coming in.

    • 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.   
    • Not the best time of year to be laying in the cold and slop under a truck tracking down wires but I have done that as well. Sounds like you then need to track down the yellow wire on the truck and see where it may be corroded and shorted somewhere.  
    • Thanks for the response leech. I purchased an adapter similar to that one with the test lights. Both trailers I tried are almost new and both have LEDS. All work great with Moms SUV and Dads truck. I’m thinking it has to be somthing corroded or a broken wire on the truck end. But figuring that out is out of my reach.
    • Sounds like it may be a bad harness on the trailer it's self.  Get one of these and test the truck again. If all works it's time to fix or replace the trailer harness. I've done both on the 5 different snowmobile trailers I have had over the years. It could just be a bad corroded or shorted rear light fixture on that one side or a shorted wire on that side.   ATB 16687 Truck Trailer Vehicle Plug Tester 7 Round Blade 4 Pin Wire Light Brake RV Tow  
    • I know this forum gets very little people now days but maybe someone could help me out. So I purchased my self a new ( to me) 2000 Silverado 1500 back in August. Be mindful this is my first truck/vehicle. So I tow often ( boat, snowmobiles, atvs, kayak). But the guy I bought it from had said all trailer lighting works great. So I didn’t think much of it. Well a few weeks after I bought it I hooked up a trailer to try the lights.... well. All running lights work perfect, but, no drivers side signal or brake light, passenger side brake light and signal work great. I have tried 3 different trailers and have tried them on 2 other vehicles everything works great. So first thought is Check fuses right? So it was in at a Chevy dealer getting some work done so I had them cheak it out. Fuses all look good and they told me all trailer lights work perfect. So I thought well maybe my 7 pin to 4 flat adapter was bad. I bought a new one of those and tried again. I got one with the test lights on it and sure enough all lights worked great UNTIL I hooked up a trailer. When I did this it kicked out the drivers side brake light and signal on the trailer. At this point I’m feed up with this issue and I’m to worried about getting nailed so I only tow a little ways from home. Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be? I was thinking maybe a bad ground on truck? But how would you know? And also this truck has spent it entire life in Florida until last May so this is the first winter in MN. But it shouldn’t matter since I tried the lights back in the end of August. Thanks a lot!
    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.
