• 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.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    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.

2017 RMK the reverse quits working after riding awhile. I install new button and wire. Did not make any difference. Sled idle fines and I really don't think it is a tps issue. Nothing happens when I push the button, like there is no connection.
Any ideas? It works perfect in the morning and the first few hours of riding.

Well. Your not alone. I was suspecting that it was due to moisture penetrating a relay as it has only happened to me twice and both on deep deep days. Do you have similar conditions when it happens to you?

Snow has been deep and covering the sled, when it happens. I pulled the relays and put dialectical grease on them with out success.

Dont forget that if the brake is applied reverse is INOP. that means you need to check everything to do with the brake light.... switch, wiring, connectors.

Really.. my parking brake light is always on, never knew that would affect it. I will have to dig into why it will not go off. I played with the lever with no luck. It free rolls like it is not on. Any suggestions that I can check to see why the light will not go off? I did not check to see if the light was on when the reverse did work.

I think the brake light witch is normally open, so you should just be able to unplug the connector going to the switch on the bars and see if that fixes it. If it does, you need a new brake light switch.

The reverse does work with the brake light on when the sled is dry.
Riding tomorrow hopefully can figure out this gremlin.

My brake light wire had chaffed and was shorting to the aluminum support structure. Reverse would not work intermittently when the wires were shorted.

You'll know if this is the case, your brake light on the PID should be ON.

If it’s a deep day, you can get snow in and around the throttle causing the sled to idle too high and not reverse. Also check your throttle cable adjustment by the lever. Sled could be idling too high all the time.
