Thumbs up Keep OSO Members on Speed Dial!

As I neared the end of my month long spring clean up of the Fountain I finally had to address my trim pump problem prior to running the boat. The pumps kept going dead, so in a haste last year I just jumped power. Well I wanted it right so I chased the wires around and around, For a least an hour and a half, couldn't find fuses, couldn't find breakers, nothing to reset. So I'm sitting in the boat in my driveway wondering what I am going to do, then it hits me, "I'll ring up Candyman, he knows everything Fountain". So I have him right on speed dial, he picks up and says, "Chad how ya doin'", I tell him my dilema, he gladly gives me some advice, but apparently his newer rigging was different from my antique rigging. So he says, "Chad let me make a call, I will call ya right back". About three minutes later he calls me with the answer derived from another fellow OSO'er. The itty bitty junctions under the seat have microscopic reset buttons not noticeable to the untrained eye, "POP, POP, POP, Problem Solved". After dealing with this for about my last three runsof last year, all it took is one phone call to the OSO knowledge bank. Thanks Guys, Midnight

I agree, there's nothing much these 9000+ minds can't figure out.

Mr. MIdnight,
Glad I could help. Rich Obren is the one who saved the day. He says he'll call it even if you make it out for Thunder Run. How'd she run for you?
