We have two options here...
Pay or don't pay.
Which results in...
Have or have not electricity.
Has anyone seen this trailer by Jeff Binkley out of Winston-Salem, NC and have any reviews of it. $3000 but you have to pay an extra $375 for brakes. Looks good, he says it tows good but have not seen any reviews of it.
Good looking trailer.
Single use trailer.
Diamond plate mounted above frame with no edges.
Any moisture on tires, plating, could result in sliding off the deck tracks rather quick while loading or unloading.
Hope it was a great day!
Took a little ride to Harbor Freight and on the way back at Pawley's Island it was 104 degrees running down the Hi-way
Let me guess...
It was such a nice day, you left the Slingshot parked at Harbor Freight?
First off, thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. It’s really good to be this age and still running. Miss Nancy and I celebrated by taking a little Slingshot ride.
Plans were to head to Tellico Plains for lunch then over the Skyway to Deals Gap and down the Dragon before heading to a little place on the river for an early dinner. Should have been about 150 miles of twisters. 😄
Long story longer, we got to Tellico Plains and had lunch at the Ironworks Grill on the river. We then headed up the Skyway towards Deals Gap. Good ride, almost no traffic, sweet. Got into Deals Gap at about 3 PM and headed down the Dragon.
At about MM6 we came to a screamimg hault. Some “broad” driving an 18 wheeler up the Dragon managed to run over a guard rail and block all traffic in both directions. We were only five miles from the bottom of the Dragon. It will take several hours to get a tow truck up to haul the semi down the mountain. Turned around and back to Deals Gap. Figure out that fastest way home is back the way we came.
Off we go, back along the Skyway to TELLICO Plaines. Ten miles from TELLICO, come to screaming halt again. Big ass tree across the road. Trees and Forrest on both sides, no shoulder to drive on and some cowboy drives his 4x4 puck up one the left side over the tree top and tells me that he thinks I could go around if I follow his tracks. I think not.
Time hit the detour button on the Zumo. It says back up and take Muller Church Road. We do. Five miles of bad pavement followed by another five miles of bad gravel and a farm dog intent on playing catch the Slingshot, we finally arrived on TN360 about five miles from Vonore.
By now it is almost 8 o’clock and way past time to eat. We found a little lakeside grill in Vonore and ventured inside, hot hungry and thirsty. It is “ Steak Night!!!”
We capped off the day with a couple of cold brew skies and a ribeye! Best beer and steak we have had in ages! The rest of the ride home was just at sundown with a beautiful sunset.
Moral of the story. Best laird plans are sometimes worthless. Let go and see what develops.
Start of the journey.
We’re off to see the Wizard!

And you thought it was going to be just another boring birthday...
Happy Adventure Day!
We will be there. Booked at the Comfort Inn for Thursday through Saturday. Planning to drive over in the Sling. Looking forward to the mountain riding. Our view of the road will be different not leading any rides.
I have heard it said that if you are not the lead dog, the view is always the same...
Looking forward to seeing everyone
You speak some truth.
Not being tethered to the lead...
You have options.
I wish no ill will toward the popularity of this event, but I hope all the spots don't fill up before I can commit 100% since I am still Slingless.
That's a picture I didn't need!
Hope you find your Slingshot.
Well, lot of places that system could fail.
The messy redneck method to be done outside would be to crack lines.
Assuming the cutter head rotates freely...
I would crack the hydraulic return of cutter head motor to check hydraulic flow.
If good, problem is down line from there.
Not much help, but it's a start.
Solenoids click when energized. Maybe use a jumper to energize the solenoid with the engine off.
So, what is the going price of an idea?
Oh yeah, what ever price they set...
Well, EjFord can help the newbies with that "mod itis" wallet problem...
Just pump that mod money into the fuel tank.
You'll find that you go farther, have fun doing it, and your wallet will remain plumper.
