    Recent Storm Damage up North!

    Ridge Runners had a great turnout for their work party! Here is a paste from a Newsletter from the Pittsburg Ridge Runners. "Incredible turnout for the work party!! We had over 60 volunteers from near and far arrive at the club house on Saturday morning November 11th to tackle all the downed trees on the snowmobile trails. It was a very cold morning in the Burg, with temperatures only in the teens but everyone got the job done. It was great to see so many club members rally together. Super job everyone!!"

    Trailer lights driving me crazy

    You definitely have a ground issue. The symptom above shows that. The right side lights may be solidly grounded to your frame, but there probably is a problem between that portion of the frame and up near the tongue where you have the plug grounded to the front of the frame. Its a hassle, but when I rewire a trailer I never ground to the frame, especially with clamshells, but actually run a ground wire all the way back to the rear lights, and always make sure I place a ground strap on the shell to the frame. On a side-note, a lot of light issues on the clamshell itself is due to the fact that many manufacturers don't run a separate ground wire or strap between the clamshell and the frame below. One way to isolate the issue would be to run a temporary ground wire from the front of your frame where the plug now grounds to right near the rear of the frame where your left tail light is grounded. Is this a wishbone frame?. Lots of times corrosion will form between the sections of that type of frame interfering with a good ground path from the tongue area to the rear of the trailer.

    NH Photo Print Auction

    OK, instead of the signs we have decided to auction off a matted print of my Mt Washington Hotel photo. The photo size is 8" X 12". With the matting it would need a 12" X 16" frame. What Nigel does with the signs after the auction is over is up to him

    Very sorry to hear about this, he really did seem like a great guy. I am particularly sorry to hear that he may have been alone when he passed, I hope that he did not suffer for any length of time. When I do eventually go, I hope that some family is close by...

    Congrats on the new house. Never enough time to get everything done...ever. Snow is coming but you still have time to get things done on the sled. I am never doing to get all my customers projects done let alone my one....still have plants to put to bed. Still stacking firewood at camp!

    Ha, I often feel under the same gun myself. Been scrambling all day to get plows out of storage for my truck and tractor(not that I expect to get much snow here) and get my sons zr120 ready. Snow is hit or miss down here and I’d hate to have him miss some seat time on the little sled good luck with new house

    Trailer lights driving me crazy

    Not originally. I have a total of 5 of those round lights on the back of my trailer. 1 on each end and 3 in the center. The middle one in the center is the one that was burned out, but I took the one from the right corner (problem side) and replaced the one that was out to make sure it was the light and not just a bad connection so maybe you're right. Either way....I'm just happy to see it working. I want to sit out there for a few hours some night and just watch it blink.......

    Trailer lights driving me crazy

    A simple burned out single filament bulb shouldn't bother other circuits. In two filament bulbs, if the ground connection is lost between the metal bulb case and the external ground circuit, electric current can flow between the brake/directional circuit and the taillight/running light circuit. (the brake and tailight filaments share a common ground point inside the bulb.) That can't happen in a single filament bulb. Typical electrical resistance readings (ohms) for a snowmobile trailer should be about 2 ohms between the ground wire (white) and the brown, yellow, and green wires. With the bulbs installed you'll see about 2 ohms between the brown, yellow, and green wires. As the running lights are (usually) single filament bulbs, if the two rear brake light/tail light bulbs are removed the chances of this electrical backfeeding should be remote. You can remove these two bulbs one-at-a -time to troubleshoot grounding problems. If you get deep into a grounding problem remember that there are three sources for a trailer ground: The white wire in the trailer connector, the trailer ball, and the safety chains. The last two are not reliable ground connections.

    Trailer lights driving me crazy

    X2 on what Skip said, I also run a separate ground from each light to the front (one common grounding point). That dimmly flashing light shows the trailer searching for a ground.

    NHPR story on OHRV's

    NHPR's The Exchange show ran a story this week on OHRVs, with the title "Off-Road: The Growth Of ATVs, Snowmobiles In New Hampshire." In the 1 hour story about 5 minutes, starting at about minute 49, was spent on snowmobiles, and most of that 5 minutes was concerned with access to the Weirs bridge in Laconia. The bulk of the time was spent on Coos county and ATV's, and the money being brought to Coos county by those ATV's. F&G Captain Walsh reported that ATV registrations were increasing. The number of snowmobile registrations wasn't discussed. The term "ATV economy" was used several times to describe the economic impact in the north country. I guess the sledding crowd survives on MRE's and sleeps in the woods while visiting Coos county.

    Questions about Doing Trail Work

    Not to worry about the ATV, at least for me, I don't have one anyway. Also, I do know enough to bring an orange vest to be in the woods this time of year. Several of those questions were really to drive some discussion, the questions about club membership are real ones for me. I do think it points out some of the reasons that there may not be as many people showing up to help, they simply don't have enough information. I think it would be really great if clubs did a better job of making things clearer for the first timers, they may be more inclined to jump in if they have a better idea of what they are getting into.

    Questions about Doing Trail Work

    Those are all really great questions and I'll be sure to bring this up at the Trailblazers meeting tonight because we all need help but help needs to be able to find us. Clubs website should have a calendar listing Trail work times and where to meet. Tools or what to bring should also be listed on clubs website. This time of year something bright orange is always recomended You do need to be an NHSA member to do trailwork or if you belong to a club that does not use NHSA's ins policy you can only do trail work for that club. I hope this helps answer some questions and I'll also be bringing this up at Rockingham's County meeting.
