  1. It's on 26 south in storage. I sent you a message. Thanks
  2. Prowler camper 2017 Prowler Lynx 30 only used 3 times. Have clear title. In Vestal NY. Open to reasonable offers. Needs to go.
  3. Do this https://www.fiberglassics.com/research/109-restoring-gel-coat.html I use the Starbrite UTEF again once at the beginning of the year and once in the middle of summer. . Had bad oxidation and it never has come back since I did it 3 years ago. Start with 2000 wet sand.
  4. Thanks. Fast shipping, and sharp,perfect size. price is excellent.
  5. Like Sea IV said. Now I think about it,wired just like that , no splicing, With receptacle. Marine mechanic where I bought it hooked everything up. Wires are about the size of a pencil.
  6. I run mine with a stand alone battery for the trolling motor. Spliced with the fuse.
  7. Good news,your boat is all clean, so no one knows exactly where the water line is. Wait until the end of the year. When it gets dirty then you'll know. Don't follow the lines of the boat or stripes. Pull it home,mark the water line. jack the trailer up. Support the boat. Drop the trailer down. Now you can work on most of the boat. Sand gel coat until it's dull. Clean with denatured alcohol. Sand spots you missed. Then clean again,sand some more. When it's all dull, now put a coat of barrier paint on. Sand off all high spots. Then put another coat of barrier on. Sand a little more. Then put two to three coats of bottom paint on. No one can do this for a 1000 dollars,and even if they charge you 2500.00, who says they didn't miss sanding or ran out of barrier coat. Hope this helps. I've completely removed bottom paint, with walnut shells and aircraft paint remover. It's not a fun job, The boat I did this on had receipts for sanding,barrier and paint. I found gel coat that hadn't been sanded, 2 coats of barrier coat on 3/4 of the boat.
  8. Try jacking the trailer and spinning the wheel. You shouldn't even be able to spin the wheel freely one revolution , even without applying the brakes. If they spin around freely, you need to adjust them. Then keep forcing the wheel arouind and have someone hand actuate the brakes. They should lock right up. This will tell you whether or not the lines were bled properly
  9. Had same problem last year on 135 merc. Merc mechanics wanted to tear apart all six carbs to start with. Told me it was the ethanol for sure. Googled it before they started work on it, and and there were quite a few responces that it was the stator. Brought the boat home and called Alan at Snake Creek Marine. Told him what it was doing, and he said sounds like the stator. They diagnosed the problem and replaced the stator all for one hour labor charge. It's run fine every since. Don't know if this is your problem, but they do know how to diagnose first.
  10. I've bought napa marine parts before, never knew ,but they're all sierra. So all you have to do is cross reference whatever part you need with sierra, call and they'll get them in usually next morning by 8 am. I look the number up myself, so they don't have to fumble around , trying to figure out what kind of marine part you need. The bad. While I was there I looked at a marine battery, Read the "date code" stamped in the side. It looked like sometime in 2012. Not good because batteries start sulfation after 3 months. In other words don't buy it. The guy at the store said the battery just came in the day before, it had to be new. Then he looked at it, found the paper sticker on it, and told me that really its worse. MAY 2011. Check the date codes stamped on the battery, don't go by the sticker. The sticker could mean they charged it on that date. We live in the northeast so there's not a lot of marine batteries going out the door. Advance auto same thing, sticker said 3/13. Date code stamped on the side was may 2012. A $122.00 battery that's already a year old. Oh boy.
  11. JD Go to batterytender.com, click on the link for technical info, it shows how to do this ( attach positve to one battery and negative to other ) Advance auto sells the jumpers made up to fit the top of a deep cycle. I use wing nuts. The amp hours actually need to be close not exact. I'd look into getting another battery at some point, you don't want to use up more than 60% especially on the trolling battery. It will take longer and longer to recharge. FYI, Johnson Control sells and let's companies put there own brand name on batteries to companies like Advance Auto, Auto Zone, Interstate, Walmart and many more. So watch, the same group size might have different CCA, amp hours, and rc. The highest amp hrs ,or rc are the best. Some sites also give you the weight. More weight means thicker lead plates that would also correspond to rc. In other words you can buy a good battery at Walmart for much less than say an Interstate would be , but they are actually the same battery.

    Good news, saw the huge pile of dirt there a couple of weeks ago. Talked with Howard Goebel yesterday. The lake is only 10 inches below summer pool, and as of yesterday the gates were completely closed.
