    • Before heading out on the trail last night I decided to do a quick diagnosis / repair on the Heep. The right front turn signal bulb kept "burning out" (according to the Jeep computer / dash). When the Jeep was first started the turn signal would work for up to three "blinks" of the right turn signal and then would start doing a quick flash and indicate the RF bulb was out. Likely not an issue with the bulb. I pulled the socket out and noticed that the contacts on the bulb were black - indication of arc / poor connection. I noticed that the bulb would "click" into the socket, but it was loose and would wobble indicating the contacts were loose. I took a flat head screw driver and bent the contacts in towards themselves - shoved the bulb back in and it was perfect all evening!
    • @SQRLPWR did you hardwire your mirror? Appears there is a kit for it.
    • thanks @SQRLPWR! I was impressed with this thing in person last night. Going to do a bit of research and might pick up a couple for the fleet. I've been meaning to get a dashcam for the truck.
    • Had a lot of fun last night - thanks for the invite @littlered! @SQRLPWR should I remove coffee nights from the calendar?
    • Thursday is trail exploration night! Yesterday we explored the Guys/Stagecoach area. The idea of these Thursday events is to spend 2 or 3 hours exploring new or existing trails. It's meant to be very unorganized and impromptu. It's not a club run, but everyone is invited. We also actively encourage you to put forward requests or ideas for trails that could have the potential for a club run. I'm also thinking of maybe 1 in 4 to host a coffee night, depending on how things go.
