    Considering upgrading from my 2000V. Suggestions?

    I went from the 20 to the 22tournament and never regretted it. Some times I have to back down some creeks I used to be able to turn around in with my 20 but it’s a small price to pay for the room, ride and huge fore and aft decks. It doesn’t really draft anymore than the 20. I know you can put a seat in the front at least. If I make another change it will be to the 23HPS. You can give me a call if you want to chat about either. 386-441-8411 Chuck

    A Towing Question...

    I would for sure. The VF doesn’t have a tilt lock on it to start and that’s a big lever sitting on the jack plate. I have the old school bar type that goes from the rear trailer roller to the lower unit. There are others out there but this one has worked for me for years.

    Edson power knob on standard Pathfinder wheel?

    You can pop the cap off the knob and back the center bolt off a little and it will turn fine. Too much and it will rattle.

    Cleaning Scuppers

    On my 2014 they have a screw in the center that holds down the cover. Interesting that my 2008 PF20 had the screw in the middle too. Sorry, maybe someone else can help here.

    Cleaning Scuppers

    Like most of you the scuppers on our 2014, 22 tournament, clog regularly. I had the boat out of the water for its annual maintenance. I used a pressure washer (both ways) on the scuppers and they were draining fine on the trailer. Once launched and recovered the port scupper would not drain.I was so frustrated I took the drian covers off and got a plumbers plunger and gave it a half a dozen good pumps. Water just poured out of the stern drain on the 6th pump. Did the other one too and it drains a lot better than before. Sometimes the old ways work better and we just over think this stuff. Just an FYI for all of you out there to give this a shot. Tight lines!

    Trailer Bunk Carpet Replacement

    Thanks guys for the feedback and expert opinions as always. The trailer only gets used a couple of times a year so I am going to check out the diamond back material and carpet. Good tip on the monel staples as well.

    Trailer Bunk Carpet Replacement

    Working on the Pathfinder's trailer and I have a couple of worn carpets on the outer bunks. Do I need to use some type of adhesive between the carpet and bunk? I was figuring on using stainless staples. Is that right?

    Fueling 18 hpx maverick

    I am not sure this is relevant but I could never get the tank full on my "s" model while it was on the lift. The tank just would not vent. After it's annual service I stopped at a station with the boat and pumped 15 gallons into the tank no issue. I checked the boat's level on the trailer and it was spot on level.. On the lift 1/2 bubble off level.

    Lowrance Customer Service is non existent

    HDS Carbon 12 and yes that the upgrade 19.1
  15. I just did the software upgrade they published. It wiped out my instrument panel layout and what inputs I want to track. Called customer service twice and ended up in their “offshore customer service center”. The first rep had to return to the laboratory to check with an engineer. I finally gave up after an hour on the phone. The second call went to the same place and that rep couldn’t identify the screen I was calling about. Asked for a supervisor and got hung up on. Finally sent an email for help, no answer in 2 days. I have searched the internet on how to update the new instrumentation templates with no success. Does anyone have any contact name or number that can get me to some one who knows something? I very well might be going back to Garmin.
