  1. I used to be a fan of SeaDek, now I’ll tell people to consider buying their competitor products. My swim platform SeaDek keeps peeling up because it visibly expands in extremely hot weather. It’s dimensionally unstable, and the expanding and contracting eventually causes the glue bond to break. I’ve reglued every pad multiple times over the last few seasons, and even replaced the middle pad when I thought the glue bond was gone because water got beneath it and froze over the winter. Nope, just an unstable material. SeaDek is trying to weasel out of their warranty by claiming there must be “light amplification” causing the pads to overheat. lol. That’s like if there is a concentrated reflection, like that curved skyscraper in London. No reflections on my swim platform. This is a company that doesn’t stand behind their product and doesn’t understand about customer service.
  2. Yeah, I’m wondering if the wiggle result was a false positive. Trim signal should be variable resistance, no? Between signal wire and ground (bond)? The sender is simply a potentiometer? I couldn’t get a consistent reading checking for variable resistance when operating the trim switch on any of the slave gauge wires.
  3. Thanks. I checked continuity between them on each pin and all is intact. I’m thinking it must be the slave gauge at this point? $400 gamble.
  4. My fuel/trim/fresh water smart gauge randomly would conk out and I would get under the dash and tug on its harness and it would cone back to life. Over two years it happened 3 or four times. Now it’s conked out as usual, needles all pointing to zero, but no tugging or unplugging of connections gets it to come back alive. Bonding is the only thing common I think across all three signals and I get perfect continuity between buss bar and yellow incoming wire to gauge. Voltage signal on one wire is 3.6v and 8v on another, and third is open it seems. Trimming up and down doesn’t change incoming voltage on any wires on that gauge’s harness. The info is daisy chained from the tach gauge, which has digital read out screen. Fuel and trim data is correct and live on that gauge. No wiggling of the harness between the two gauges brings dead one back alive. Dead gauge makes a soft clicking sound internally. Any insights?
  5. And only run your blowers AFTER fueling. I see lots of people on social media assume "run your blowers while fueling" means exactly that: while pumping fuel the blowers should be on. The blowers should be off while fueling or you risk pulling fuel vapors from the filler neck and tank vent into the bilge. Blowers on AFTER.
  6. I've read some horror stories about using the zep method on RVs, FYI: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f44/zep-floor-shine-may-have-ruined-the-exterior-of-my-grand-design-434923.html
  7. Wax is 1980s technology. I'd recommend using a modern polymer/ceramic based sealant next time. They last much longer.
  8. Wish my wife sewed! Is this the stuff? Can't find anything online under stitchfix for vinyl (doesn't help that a massive online clothing store is called the same thing). https://www.amazon.com/Flexi-Stitch-Liquid-Invisible-Stitch-Leather/dp/B000VS8DZU
  9. Where did you get it, and how has it been holding up?
  10. Lake George, NY. Sometimes the best sunsets are invisible.
  11. So that’s Jonah, our rescue, sweetest pup. Photo is at Sandy Bay, one of the few shallow and sandy bottom coves on Lake George. The lake is natural, not man made, and is very rocky generally. Sandy Bay is no anchoring, it has a mooring ball field. I think the mooring ball approach is to limit boat density, the cove has neighborhoods on both sides, and without a way to limit the number of boats I am sure it would be crazy on the weekends. Log Bay is another semi-sandy shallow cove and it gets packed there on weekends, but it borders state park land.
  12. Post processing can do a lot to liven up an image. I prefer to do it manually than just use prepackaged filters:
  13. Is it in neutral? Safety lanyard in place?
  14. IPhone 11 Pro Max. The rest of the phone is trash, but the camera functions are pretty awesome. Plus some post processing.
