You ALL must be FREEZING. It is 34 degrees here but the sun is out bright in AZ near the Mexico border. Suppose to be 14 degrees the next two nights. The ice is still on the fountain and in the chicken's water. It have NEVER been this cold. Bummer, darn global warming.

BOILING!!!

It’s so hot and humid here, a man could melt away. It’s the hottest summer in living memory and beyond. It might be grass is greener syndrome, but I’m hanging out for winter big time. The temp at night is staying about 20 Celsius (70 Fahrenheit), but the cruncher is, it is still 100% humidity. Our top temp is not that high, maybe only 30 (86 for you), it’s the humidity that’s the killer. When I make my way to the States next, it wont be in Summer, I hate the heat.

Cheers Mike.

I could use a little of that NZ heat. When we left yesterday morning it was 11 degrees. I see today it is starting to warm up.

4x4x454, look out it is on its way!

We dont get our weather from down south it will come from Canada or Oregon. Some times we get moisture from the golf tho. Anyway its that time of the year that it will be 30-40 one day and -20 the next.

I just wish the snow would stop we have 36" in the front yard and the next 2 months will be the snowiest could end up with another 36" before its all done.

I like the snow just not this much cant ride the T2 but have lots of fun in the truck. It surprised the heck out of me I missed the road as I could not see it the snow was the same level in the ditch. I thought I was stuck for sure I locked it in and pushed snow up over the bumper for a 100 yards it was about 4' deep.

I just thought I'd add an update for Feb. 25. We are usually in the high 40s by now average; but today it is 13 F this afternoon, and supposed to go down to -3 tonight. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I don't believe in global warming but I may believe in climate change. This is just too wierd!

Hay you are sending it our way. We are suppose to be 47/22 degrees Sunday. We are almost in Mexico, it ain't suppose to happen here, LOL. What are you doing up there to send your cold stuff down to us. Keep it, it is yours. Siriusly, I think most of the palm trees will not survive this weather. Sure going to change the landscape.

I'll tell ya Rock; my wife and I are about ready to move to Sedona or sumpin like it.......we've about had it with all the snow and ice. After 17 years; we are finally cooled off to the core. I almost had our Trooper sold in November; and I was lookin at new Polaris Pro RMK snowmobiles....but after starting up my welder; and doing some mods to the Trooper; I came to my senses and decided I was gonna sooner or later move south for full on retirement and off roading (my first love) Someday that will surely happen! (Hopefully)

Mopartist, That is what happen to us. I was a big time skier, only use I had for winter. When I retired we we moved first closer to the slopes but qot tired of the snow and headed south. Best move we ever made. Great time to buy in AZ. Home prices are back to 2002 levels, half of what they were. What can I say, we took the Trooper for a ride yesterday.

      I need help and idea's on the best options for a water tank/spray rig for a Mule Pro 6 passenger, used in the 3 passenger mode.  This will be for support of prescribed burns, once called controlled burns, to clear under brush and slash after logging operations and wildfire prevention.   Occasionally used to apply fertilizer, insecticide or herbicide on pasture.   Also to provide supplemental water for crops, gardens/landscaping.  Ideally it would be about 50 gal, with both a  boom and hand held sprayer,  and with a high volume pump.  It would be nice to be able to suction pump to load the  tank from surface water.
      There are a lot of dealers, brands and units to choose from but I hope to hear from those that have some real world experience with this.

      This looks to be a pretty common topic and I've had issues with mine overheating since I got it back around the end of 2019. Started running hot again, thermostat was not opening and they sent me a new one. Installed that, burped the system for air all to no avail. Next in line is the water pump to replace, they sent me a water pump and when I got the old one off it was not turning freely to say the least so I'm thinking that could have been my problem. My issue now is getting the slot in the water pump shaft to line up with the tab inside the engine of the machine. Any tricks to doing this? Thanks in advance

      Has anyone tried using an external electric water pump on these machines?  I watched a video on youtube of one installed on a 1000 cc  side by side that had chronic overheating issues in hot weather.. He claimed that after installing a Prius  electric automotive  pump from junk yard, inline in the inlet hose and bypassing fan temp switch,  that the engine never overheated again. .. I am considering trying it on mine...................... Anybody  else done this? .................. He did not say if he removed the mechanical pump or not.. would it pump thru that pump?

      I would like to install a water to air cab heater in my 2500 but cannot see how to tap into the cooling system so the heater will have flow from the engine water pump except when the thermostat is open. Does anybody know if the factory heater has some kind of thermostat adapter that lets hot water circulate through the engine and the cab heater core before the thermostat opens?  Unless I can solve this water flow problem it seem pointless to install a cab heater if it will just have intermittent water flow when the thermostat is open.
      I did buy a $66 Mr. Heater MH4GC Golf Cart Propane Heater on Amazon but it is really hard to find a place to install it that will be convenient when two or especially three people are in the seat. Decided it was too much a fire hazard because it would be too close to the riders and if there was a gasoline leak it would likely ignite the fumes.  Also it didn't really put out much heat. So I returned it.
      The only other idea I had was doing something with an exhaust heat air to air system like the Volkswagon Bugs were in the 60's but this has many challenges too.
      If I could just figure out a suitable water flow path I would be good to go. I do know where there is a Mule 2500 with a factory heater but I won't be back that way to see it 650 miles away until next summer. If anybody has one and could post some photos of the heater water connections to the engine, that would be wonderful.
      Many thanks, Mike
