If it is new I would contact Marcum directly and hear what they recommend.  They will probably have you Register your equipment online first (10 minutes) then file a claim.  I had a transducer quit working and I did work to know it was the ducer only and I wrote in my claim what it was doing.  The next morning I had an email saying they were reviewing my claim, instantly I started getting emails and they were issuing replacement parts and were sending tracking information within an hour of reading my claim.  I received the ducer the next day.  They are actually amazing to work with but take the time before hand and register your products and file a "Claim" and if it doesn't turn into a claim they will trouble shoot with you to make sure.  It may require sending the unit to them but they target 48 hour turn around.

If it's outside the warranty period they have a set repair rate that includes parts and labor.   I sent my lx5 in last spring and for less than the cost of a new transducer,  I got a new transducer,  motor and a few other parts replaced.

I bought a camera from them years ago and had a small issue and stopped at their place in Bloomington (if memory serves me correctly) and an hour later I walked out with all new refurbished parts for my camera!  If you are close by to the headquarters you may want to swing by and see if they can repair ASAP.  great customer service!!

      Found a tackle box up on Lake Osakis this morning. It wasn't in any of the community spots or I wouldn't of found it with amount of guys up there. LOL!  Wow you would think the Caughren point area was the only place to catch and sight fish.They should of been there a week and a half ago when we found them fresh 😲   Glad I have better spots where social or should I say solo distancing was happening 😉 If anyone lost one out there off the beaten path I found it feel free to PM me with the contents and Ill get it back to you somehow. If nobody claims it I'll donate it to a kid (and No not you Smurfey 😂) to get him a good start into ice fishing some good stuff in there!

      Here is something we may not of touched yet .   What with the access being shut down on the Rainy river how do we know the opener won't be either shutdown or pushed back? Any rumors or first hand knowledge out there?    Another question what with the current shelter in place regs how will this effect all Minnesota's resorts and campgrounds?  Food for thought my friends.

      Just a heads up to all out walking especially people with dogs. The ticks are out. I've been out shed hunting a lot and scouting for turkeys in the woods lately with my beloved dogs. Pulled off some deer ticks last few outings off both my labs. Time to introduce some preventive tick procedures now if venturing out. For my labs I use Frontline but some other options are Bravecto, Seresto, and at the least a flea tick color. For myself I use a product I swear by I always spray down with Permethrin before venturing out in the woods swamps or fields. I have had great results with this product. Hasn't let me down once!  Lyme disease is nothing to take light of as many people and dogs get infected every year.

      Well as we are facing some crazy times and going into some uncertain times ahead. Stress and anxiety will be at a all time hi. Tension amongst family and friends might be tested to a all time peak. Just wanted everyone to try as best as possible to stay positive optimistic through the whole scenario We will all get through this, maybe in the end it will open all are eyes up to certain ways we live act treat each other . Lets all keep our heads up Positivity is key to better health and a better life. Lets try to help out wherever we can to help our community's and friends neighbors and loved ones. Lets Try not to show the fear we all feel and  face in these unsettled times.  The younger ones especially are kids are looking up to us.  Lets all act like positive role models and do our parts to try and get things back on track for everyones sake.   Many will be seeing some free time ahead with job layoffs business closings etc.  Lets turn those bad situations into good positive ones. Volunteer help a elderly person  neighbor donate to food shelves, etc. 
       
      Lastly we are all family here even though some of us have our differences at times 😉 LOL   FM has always been a safe place our second home where we all feel comfortable a safe place sort to speak. We all come log in  and will especially in these  hard times ahead. Lets get some good topics flowing to ease all our minds. I want to add if anyone ever needs anything I mean anything shoot me a PM Ill do whatever I can to help any way possible. If you need to talk release some stress get some things off your chest or just feel some normalcy in your life  in these strange times holler. PM me and Ill get my number out there to you. We are all in this together no matter our views and opinion. STAY SAFE STAND STRONG MY FRIENDS AND BE HAPPY 😀😀😀

      For those of you that would rather save your money for gas, instead of hoarding hand sanitizer ...
      2 cups of 95% or greater isopropyl alcohol (99% pictured), 1 cup aloe vera gel

       
      Good luck everyone 😉 stay positive and productive. 
      Don't forget to breathe,  there's still lots of ice out there Gustophsen 😆

      Scientifically speaking, yes it will slow down the infection rate as we progress into summer.  Another significant factor is the higher humidity indoors (low humidity makes our membranes more susceptible to infection).   However, if New Orleans is a window of the weather impact, then we need to be careful about being too optimistic.  Mardi Gras at the end of Feb led to a huge outbreak there and temps were mild.  Perhaps the way COVID-19 propagates will mean that weather is not the final answer.   Besides this example, I think some of the discrepancies you see in reporting on things like this is that some do not want to acknowledge that weather actually will help because psychologically that could lead to lower social distancing compliance.  On the other hand, those trying to prop up confidence in the economy may be overstating the weather impact.  This dynamic seems to be in effect for most issues surrounding COVID-19;  it creates a challenge for the average person to know what to believe.   When I say hunting and fishing is no impact, that assumes you are not driving a couple hours and interacting with people there at gas stations and grocery stores, and then coming home and doing the same.  Militant approaches to shelter in place is a precaution against people either not understanding how to social distance or they don't care.  As long as we are practice it effectively, we won't need to go there.   Two weeks ago I went to a specialty supply store.  There was a note to call a phone number, they will take your order and charge your card, then put your order on the loading dock.  That is effective (though giving your credit card number over the phone may lead to other problems but I know the people there).   We are able to go to grocery stores because we have to.  The cashiers should all be wearing gloves and masks.  Otherwise they are prime vectors for transmission.

      Ouch, last time I did that @Joe took a sled to bridge the gap and told me " That's why I went to college".   I went home changed and came back.   Oh yeah, he hears "and that's why you went to college" quite often these days. 😁

      Down here in north metro season over. Open water 100 yards off shore on Coon Lake Anoka, expect it fully open by mid next week with today's rain and warmer temps. Time to get the boat out of winter storage. 20200327_130822.mp4

      Better material in the Ascend than the Pelican. I looked at them also. Nice product. Forgot to mention that on the Ascend the carry handle on front is same that was on my future beach. Had to replace it after 2 years. Cloth goes bad.
