    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    I clearly suck at linking conversations. The winch controller is good. It's just a little switch on the outside. A little $5 one at the parts store works just fine. As long as it's waterproof. May have to make a bigger hole for a new switch

    I have the same winch . Go ahead and get a replacement switch for the You'll definitely want to get a waterproof switch for the wireless control. Definitely get a waterproof switch for the wireless control. Mine had failed within a year. Waterproof winch with a non-waterproof switch go figure.

    No problem just trying to help the group help the outdoors and help promote my company. Don't worry my wife patted me on the back.

    I ask boss man he was cool with it. He's an avid Hunter and outdoorsman. But the dumpsters in Decatur and he's got another one in Cullman. that's why I was wondering transporting trash 200 mi seems a little silly.

    I work for valley heating and cooling in Decatur. We're running six install crews so we accumulate a lot of trash. We always have a roll-off dumpster at the shop. Depending on the volume I'll run this by boss man

    I have a couple questions about this trash run. What are we going to do with the trash? What kind of volume of trash are we looking at? I may or may not have a roll off dumpster at my work. No need to pay a disposal fee. Just curious

    That was supposed to be linked to the conversation about the high lift Jack. Fudged that up.

    I have mine mounted in the same location. Just the bar though. All the rest is packed away in the back. Cut down on weight. Prevents it from rusting up to. If they rust up they don't function properly. It'll go up but not down. Use some Wing nuts just for ease.

    I don't know why I doubled that. I've been on here for years just never talked. Lurking in the background stealing people's ideas

    Yeah that'd be cool. I found it with Google maps. Still a lot of it I haven't explored. There's a section for camping. And a dry Beach on the Tennessee River for swimming. The biggest thing is it's all free.

    I paid my dues today so I don't feel bad leaching in on y'all's section. Any of y'all ever ran that Hitchcock Lane? Just over the state line above Lauderdale. Reminded us a lot of iron Gap. A lot of water crossings. There's a place called the end of the world. Didn't go the whole way running solo.

    Awesome. Me and my family are up for it. Be a good way to meet some of y'all. I'll make my kiddos pick up some trash. Good character building exercise.

    Need some technical help i.e. I'm stuck

    I have been looking at trailer parts for my car hauler. That e-trailer.com. but I was driving down 565 a few weeks back. Looked over and saw redneck trailer supplies. Didn't stop in but with a name like that might be interesting.

    The booster was a hard one to diagnose. It wasn't quiet as any of the articles described. May have been just a pin hole in the internal diaphragm.
