Hi My name is Troy I have been married for 33 years to my childhood sweethart. We have 4 kids all grown, 3 grandkids and 1 on the way. we are very proud of them, they have all turned out great. We all love camping and the things that go with it. This is a very good time of our familys life right now as my oldest daughter has been fighting cancer for over a year and we just found out she is in total remission. I go by the name of flatbed from my dad giving me a 56 ford pick-up that is a flatbed when i was a kid. I still drive it to work although not as much as i used to. I have raced a class 8 truck in baja and finished 3rd over all in the 1000 about 10 years ago. I no longer race but i would if i had the chance to do it again. When we are camping with other people i like to mingle and help if they are having problems with there rides. We live in Jamul Ca, both me and my wife grew up here. we love it and it is in the country. :rolleyes:

Glad your here flatbed. Great news about your daughter, that's something to celebrate. When s*** happens to us, you take it on-board, but when it's your kids, that really hurts. I didn't know you had raced in the baja, man that would be awesome to do that but I bet your back would give you grief after 1000 miles of pounding. By the way, my name is made up from 1 part, one of my favourite songs "Highway Star" by Deep Purple and 1 part, the fact that I greet most people by the typical Kiwi way by raising both eyebrows and saying "Bro". My mates started calling me "bro __ star".

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?

      After 5 years my 2016,  650LandMaster is needing normal wear and tear service. But I can’t find a dealer service center to perform any of the work because I didn’t purchase the UTV from them. “I’m not going to help you” I’m told, “find someone else”. And apparently there’s not a damn thing I can do about it.

      DO NOT BUY ANY THING FROM HISUN Period! I had the axis 700 for 2 months when a rat or squirrel ate both wiring harnesses. (Main & ECM)Wanna know why? Because the manufacture of these things in their infinite wisdom use either, a soybean oil or a peanut oil to run the wires through the the wire loom. Hmmm i wonder why they would be inclined to eat the wires. So now I have $10K machine that I've only had for 2 months when all this happened and they will not warranty it at all. It is going to cost me $800 to $1000 to get this fixed. Here is a link to a video showing where we took our Hisun notice how many are there:
      So counting mine, there are 16 of Hisun Axis on the lot that i took in for authorized dealer, with the exact same problem, plus other troubles that the mechanic explained to me. This particular place told me they are not going to work on them anymore. I will be posting this in as many places as possible to reach the masses. I hope its worth Hisun!
