Marcum customer service

Question

Mudcutter

Have one of the first LX-3. Purchased in 2002. Had what seemed a bad ducer go -- not as much "ping ping" from the ducer. Maybe 12-15 trips with it. Thought for sure it was the ducer, and went to many places looking for replacement ducer and no luck,,, good thing,, took it to Thorne Bros in Fridley and hooked up the unit to good ducer, same problem.

Bad head unit. Sent it in to Marcum in Anoka and in 2 weeks a fixed unit good as new with no bill that was sent to me.

That's some customer service, and will lean towards them in the future.

Same exact thing happened to me and my roomate. We both bought LX-3's four years ago. His unit went out after sitting dormant over the summer last year. Mine went out this year. It must be pretty common because I called Marcum and the guy knew what it was right away. I also figured it out when I put a different transducer on and neither mine or my roomates worked with my unit but they both worked with my roomates unit. I dropped mine off in Anoka at the repair center and they sent it to my house in four days. Very good customer service.

Lucky they got it done....my ears hurt from the Vex. humming.

I know what you mean about the noise grin.gif LOVE my LX5 . Most time all you have to do is open up the Vex and lube the brushes and the noise will subside.

I picked up another LX-3 on Dec. 8. The signal was weak so I put the transducer from my other one on it and it worked fine. Called Marcum on Dec. 10 and they sent out a new transducer. Tested it on Dec. 11 but it was still weak. I called Marcum back and said the new transducer didn't help and I needed it for an LOW trip on the 14th. He said bring it in. I went up there on Dec. 12 and he swapped the power head. It saved the trip for my son and I since most of our fish were caught jigging. Fantastic customer service.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
