    President's Day weekend 2019

    Wednesday and Thursday look crappy. Friday will have a little W to hopefully dry or smooth things out, and it looks like the weekend may be fairly nice.

    Mis-fire / dead cylinder

    I've seen many new caps be bad, usually cheap Auto Zone stuff. You'll need to figure out why that spark is weak. Swap wires with another cylinder just to rule that out. Are we talking VW here? I'm not very familiar with that ignition, but yes it usually works or doesn't.

    Mis-fire / dead cylinder

    Look into that weak spark issue first. Compare the spark to a known good cylinder. Possibly a bad distributor cap or wire.

    2020 DMax Takes by Mr. Banks:

    I just read about the new HD yesterday when I was doing some GM web based training. 35,500 lb towing capacity is insane. It'll be mated to a 10 speed Allison. I'm not looking forward to working on this thing though.

    Finally better cell service at D!

    Here's an update on the cell tower construction. NOTHING has happened. All they did was put up that gate in the boundary fence and grade an access road to the top of the mountain as seen in those selfies. I took a little hike up there on our last dune trip just to see for myself. There isn't anything built up there yet. Not even a concrete slab. There's obviously some big holdup or delay in this. Just thought I'd share the latest. There is still no new tower. I have my doubts if it will be completed by April/May like they say.

    Portable generators

    update! Thanks to a heads up from @raspadoo, Chad and I picked up a couple of these around Christmas time on a 4 day only sale for under $300 with a 3 year warranty and tax. Score! I ran it last trip and it worked great. It is just as quiet as the Honda.

    President's Day weekend 2019

    The weather is a major factor in my plans to go. I am ready for some warm weather and dry sand!
  14. Looks like we may be heading out for President's Day weekend for the first time in 9 years. 2010 was the last time we did that holiday weekend. We usually skip the big weekends, but that is probably the only weekend that'll work for us this month. Who else is planning on going out? https://www.dumontduneriders.com/news/presidents-day-weekend-2019-r159/
