I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.
A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.
A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.
If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.
If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.
Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.
As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.
Have a great season.
From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.
Howdy, hoping someone can assist identifying the accessory power plug on the hood of a 2013 RMK 800. I’m needing to hardwire a heated brake lever I got that was originally intended for a 850. Also shouting out the colors of the wires would be awesome.
Black/red. DC. Fused 2 amp in the bag by the primary. Labeled ACC in wiring diagram. It's been confused as AC because of the name. It's DC. You can bump amps, but quality amps on the poo are hard to come by before the smoke rolls. I've said it before - these Pro Rides have a wiring harness designed and built in an 8th grade shop class - I'm being respectful to the high school shop students. They did the Axys. No one has ever admitted to the IQ, drunk or sober.
The ACC Power Test and RCA Accessory Power plugs both come from the same source (you can see this in your wiring photo, both connecting to the AC Pwr Splice along with handwarmers and headlights). On the pro ride this is actually AC power, not DC, and it's not fused. On the Axys this went to DC power.
The DC Test Pwr plug is 2 amp fused DC power.
The skinz heated brake lever will run off any of those 3 plugs, AC or DC power (hence the same skinz lever works for pro ride and axys 600/800 sleds). It'll run a little hotter from DC.
