Sure thing :)
Firstly, before you drive, you should check the two propane tanks to make sure at least one of them is full. I've seen one die on the ice which isn't just embarrassing but dangerous since the hot water that drips from the machine will burn a hole in the ice.
Once you make sure you have fuel you need to check the blade. There is a six or eight foot long steel blade that sits in the conditioner (in picrel it is the conditioner is the rectangular implement that is below the seat. You lower it when you go on the ice) which cuts the ice enough for water to get into all the gouges. You want to make sure it isn't too high or too low. Once you get on the ice you adjust it based on the ice. You can also feel underneath on each side to see how it sits. If one side is higher or lower than the other you have to grab a socket wrench and tighten one side until it sits flat.
Now that that's out of the way you fill up the two water tanks. There's a large hot water tank and a smaller cold water tank. The hot water is dumped onto the ice after the blade passes and spread out by the towel on the conditioner on the ice to make it smooth. The cold water is "Wash water" which is sprayed into deep cracks and sucked up by the machine and into the snow bin. The wash water is for when the ice has taken a beating and you have to get the snow and crap out of deep cuts.
Once you get onto the ice, you lower the conditioner down to the ice and turn on the elevator. In the conditioner there is a horizontal and vertical auger that takes the snow you cut and shoot it into the snow bin. You adjust the blade with the crank. If it's heavily damaged like after tryouts or an adult game, you set it down more to get rid of the gouges. If there's less wear you pull it up a bit to save the ice. Once the elevator is on you start your flood and turn on your hot water and wash water.
