Try the truck plug-in with another trailer to be sure what you are trying to fix. Like Ken, I would be checking the truck plug-in for corrosion or bad wiring.

So no more exhaust brake. I would miss that.

He could add one to the exhaust system later if he ever needs one.

When you get ready to do sprinklers, look at the Hunter PGP-ADJ heads. Yes Orbit carries a knock off at Home Depot or Lowes, but not the same quality. Place really looks nice Charles.

Just spend the time you need to do a complete clean out and some pump lube every time you put it away and it should last a good long time.

Shucks, touch it up with some JD green paint and all will be well. In a couple years doing that the thing will match the other JD tractors.

Adding that option almost makes up the cost difference between gas and diesel. And boy howdy the repair cost will go up after adding the extra power to the gas engine.

Dave, I had 3 or 4 trips back to the dealer with DEF issue problems. Poor quality warning mostly. The dealer stayed on the problems and solved the issue with sensor replacement. NOX sensors as I remember, but am betting Ken knows which ones are the problem. My  concern was having the thing go into limp mode because the computer thought the def was bad. Never did go into limp and I enjoyed the truck towing or not. On my 2016 the main computer had to be replaced with only a couple thousand miles on it. That could have happened with either gas or diesel. No issues at all since then.

I do not constantly tow more than 10,000 lbs  and have to disagree with you guys. I had the 6.0 GM gas in 3 pickups and had to replace exhaust manifolds and other system parts because the heat from towing destroyed them. I got very tired of listening to the engine trying to destroy its self going uphill. Plenty of power but if you had to slow down for any reason it was very hard to get the rpm back up. Gas mileage sucked towing anything, heavy or not. Other than the problems with the DEF system on my 2011, the diesel has been very reliable and maintenance does not seam any more expensive or time consuming. I keep the engine as it came from the factory, and have the maintenance done as recommended. I think the bigger issue is cost to get into the diesel to start with. Take out a longer loan or pay more each month. If you can afford a diesel and tow at all, it is a better choice. Just have to be a bit careful where the front tires go as the diesel is heavier and you can  get stuck more easily.

Charles, what did you go with for a pool water heater? We used solar water heaters on the roof to help with the community pool heater. Poor installation or winterizing  resulted in freeze damage so we now only use the propane heater. The solar didn't work all that well up North with the trees and so many cloudy days, but they did help.

Yikes, I don't think Charles would allow any illegal close to his place. My comment was tongue in cheek, yours is well taken however. Although, I will say those guys do work in some areas where it is very hard to find a legal person to preform the tasks.

    Quote from: Bear9350 on October 03, 2017, 06:30:57 AM[/size][size=0px]A simple trap that we set-up at the cabin and other places that we don't check daily.  Fill a 5 gallon bucket or similar half full of water.  push a stick or rod through an empty soda can.  Put a couple strips of peanut butter down the can.  Place the can over the bucket so that the can is in the middle of the bucket.  The idea is that the mouse will crawl out to the can on the rod.  When it crawls up on the can to get the bait, the can rotates and the mouse drops into the bucket and drowns in the water.  The can should still have bait on it and continue to work.  Depending on where you place the bucket you may need to build a ramp up to the bucket.[/size]

    You already have the bumpers, upgrading winches adds little weight if any.

    Roof rack, a hundred or so until you load it up Don style,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Sure glade I have the LBZ, but I understand wanting the pump and ally upgrade.
    I have a skinny little 9K winch on the front
    A 16.5 will add from 100 to maybe 120 more there
    Push bar uprights with two cross bars and wings, maybe 80

    Roof rack is #75 (I have built over a half dozen...) and additional reinforcing, maybe #20 more

    Two 2" X .120 wall hoops is an easy 80-100

    Placing some steel under the front back to the crossmenber, then under the trans, Xfer case and fuel tank is #200

    A 10 K winch in the rear bumper is #75

    Then a case of water is what, #20???

    An easy #2,000-#3000 pounds That is when you consider now the entire chassis will be one solid cube of wet mud!


    Well, not a lot of extra weight because of some fancy bed topper anyway.

    If you do use the trees to help move the thing put something between the chain or cable and the tree to protect the bark from tearing.

    Like Ken, if the cable pullers don't work, set up rollers under it and roll it into place. I moved a shed with 4 inch pipe rolling on 6x8 timbers, hardest part was trying to stop it before it ran into the apple tree which actually stopped it.

    Funny deal Shawn... we pretty much agree.

    Laws won't fix mass shootings (correct) Some well thought out rules, may prevent some...if enforced... (debatable) As I see it, the laws are coming, regardless. That's what a society that's morally decayed does. They make stupid laws to replace common sense and moral values. Study history....this is quite clear, and factually what has always happened.

    So...the laws will come, which side do we want to be on? Do we want to be Morally valued/responsible to see/call out... there is a issue, and in some areas we as gun owners can bring forth more common sense, responsibility and do what we can to make sure we have set a standard? Or we will be dictated to how we shall live by that very decay we have discussed? It's not just about laws new or old.. it's about the big picture.

    Lets face it... if society was "healthy" that Sheriff, much the school administration, and some FED's, and who knows who else would be unemployed, and likely in a few cases, detained and held responsible. As most are, this was preventable on many levels of obvious reality. Your right, society failed... I just don't buy into the logic that we as gun owners don't hold some of that responsibility.

    We can do better and not infringe our rights.  We can as a HUGE part of this country's citizens say we will not tolerate this decay...we will do WHAT it takes to put a stop to this. The "what" regarding laws/rules whatever should be OUR rules of said engagement....not some politician or professor or media personality. Our Ideas offered, vetted against OUR constitution, assuring no one gives up rights. But towards a goal of doing our part... to PROTECT our rights.

    Once that has been established....maybe society will see the REAL issue. Some of that decay falls at the feet of gun owners who can't seem to distinguish between the right to bare arms.... and the convenience of bearing arms.

    If I bitch slapped every person I saw with a AR15 at the range who has ZERO clue how to handle that weapon (likely any other weapon also) and confiscated said weapon, I'd own a few hundred AR's. We have all seen it, we all know that's true, and maybe we should establish exactly what should be done about it?   

    These "shooters" by default, despite our wishes, are gun owners. Are we policing our ranks to the best of our abilities on ALL levels?

    Obviously we are not...

    I would not be to quick to try to take my AR away from me. No I don't have the most up to date training but after the fight I just might come out the winner in this fight.

    Yes , I agree time to put in the overflow piping. I would go with one larger pipe rather than two smaller but it isn't my pond. Size the overflow and leave some room for bigger runoff. Better to be too much at first than fighting a failure later. Other idea would be a  rock lined overflow swale area. That must be some real clay soil as muddy as the water is.
