Hi All - I recently (accidentally) removed the light housing from my Bull while trying to temporarily remove the light cover. I already had everything off when I realized that the lens just pops off for cleaning. Anyway, in the process of trying to get it back in I accidentally broke the wires attached to the light ballast. Honestly I have NEVER even used the light so not sure why I was even tinkering with it.

Rather than try to reattach the wires I just pulled them back through the back side and capped them off with tape and wire nuts and tossed the whole light into my shed drawer. Sooo - question is - Now I have a cool rocker switch that I can attach to something - any ideas or suggestions as to what I could do either with the rocker switch to control something else, or remove the rocker switch altogether and put something else in the same place?

All ideas welcome!! And GO!

Haha I knew I would open myself up but bring it on!
I was being serious....there was a person here who said they were having problems with the pellets not leveling and running out of pellets even though there were alot in the hopper. Since then I check my hopper often and use my hand to keep them level.

Now that @dsandersus fella...hes a little on the wierd side...;)

Yes I also check every time I fire it up. I also keep it full most of the time or at least no lower than half.

Yeah, that dsandersus dude is not right in the head... Must be all the blue smoke he's been inhaling over the past month or so... ;)

I was also the one that was having issues with pellets defying the gravity laws. The vibrating box is a solid idea.

I have to do this as well, otherwise I stand the chance of having an empty auger with pellets clinging for their life on the sides of the hopper.

I thought that was you but just wasnt sure....memory is leaving faster than the wives at this point. o_O

Ya know if you really think about it...if the circuit could handle it you could wire in with the fan so that when the fan came on the motor would vibrate pellets settle and those wall huggers wouldn't have a chance!

How about hook it to some external "party lights"/ rope lights ?... Could help set the mood for those late night sexy smoking situations*
