Without not knowing what you have there for a furnace I can't offer much. First thing to do is shut the power off for a short time and then turn it back on. If your lucky that reboot is all you need.

Inside the furnace cover there might be a printed trouble shooter that'll go through all the steps it in a complete cycle. Once you figurer out where in that cycle the furnace stops and shuts down or begins the cycle over you'll know which step it failed to do.

I only say this cuz we had a few frantic minutes when we tried to start the gas fridge on a trip this fall. Make sure there is gas and make sure the valve at the tank is not shut off, they shut them off when they fill them and sometimes forget to turn them on.

I have a Suburban furnace in my camper that has gone out a couple times over the years of using it. I believe each time is was a some sort of issue with the gas supply. First time something had to be cleaned out internal to the furnace, venturis or something like that. Second time it was the pressure regulator on the tank that wasn't allowing enough gas to go through.

I spent a few hours each time trying to fix them, but each time ended up calling a service tech from an area RV dealership to stop out. Couple hours of their time, $150 and we were in business again.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.

      Like someone else said, some of the places with the old school $2-$5 beer and $6-$10 burger pricing have also been owned for a long time and were paid off long ago. According to the county website, the landing has 300+ feet of lakeshore (which isn't cheap), a tax bill that's 3 times what the VC pays, 10 times the dock space to maintain and given that it's was purchased relatively recently, they likely a mortgage to pay. The Crescent is also a relatively recent purchase. But the Crescent has a less expensive location, lower taxes and is more centrally located in terms of road access (important during the 4-5 months of the year when boating and snowmobiling taper off).   Overhead is going to play a role in the pricing of any business. You have your total sales minus your overhead and that's your profit. You can't sell the same thing at the same price with significantly more overhead because you're not going to make any money. Yes, you can offset low margins with a higher number of sales, but with a very short snowmobile season and a relatively short boating season that can be pretty difficult.   I'll be the first to agree that the pricing is on the high side, but the food is also a step up from some of the other options with lake accessibility. My guess is that after evaluating the various price points, the owners decided that the current business model is where they stand the best chance at turning a profit and keeping the doors open. If $2 beers and $5 burgers were a slam dunk way to make money, I'm sure that they'd be doing it because it would be a lot easier.   Whether it be lakeside bars/restaurants or marinas, there are less and less of them every year because the cost of lakeshore and the taxes (which usually increase after a recent sale) make it almost impossible to compete with places that were paid off a generation ago. When these restaurants and marinas close, townhomes and cabins usually replace them so I'm happy to pay the prices if it means another option when it comes to eating or grabbing some drinks on the lake.

      I see I should have done a more thorough search. The smitty sled looks to be the ideal solution to my issues. Thanks guys. Now I have a project.
