hi,

hi,

fwiw, rainx helps a lot. wipers get the water off and windows don't seem to get quite as caked up.

hi,

we used to use trinidad years ago. at that time, it wasn't a multi-season paint (i.e. once exposed to air, it no longer worked). check to see if it is now a multi-season paint. if not you'll need to re-paint.

hi,

we are a recent purchaser of a USED pdq and chris went over and above to help us with "teething" problems.

if chris isn't SWAMPED he will try to help you.

if he IS swamped, then maybe you need to be concerned.

hi, you need to check for voltage on the small wire which goes to solenoid from the key. if while turning the key you get no voltage there, then you need to back up the starter circuit. if you do it's in connection to solenoid or solenoid/ starter, etc. we had a 9.9 on our iroquois, but don't rememb...
