I've recently purchased a 2012 expedition ACE, and am having a great time with it. It was used (obviously) but really does seem to be going strong. There are a couple of quirks I was wondering if I could ask about. As a caveat: I am very new to snow machines, and so I am sorry if some of these are stupid.
1. Speedometer/tach- this is no longer working. I took the top off and unplugged and replugged the BRP device, and it worked for about 15 minutes before stopping. This seems to suggest that there is a connection problem. Do you know if I can replace the connector piece? Is this hard to do? Is there often corrosion on the points and can you just clean them off?
2. Handwarmers- yesterday I was out in -25 C (I live up north) and my bars were barely warm. Is there a way to change this setting? Frustratingly they seemed to work better when it warmed up to -5
3. Gun/chainsaw mounts- if anyone has experience with this particular sled and mounting things please feel free to weigh in. I live in a small town and need to order everything so can't just try to make things fit.
Also, if people have general advice regarding common mistakes I would love to hear them!
Thanks so much,
