  1. Too much of the conspiratorial, foaming at the mouth, tear filled rants. I really enjoyed his shows for a long time.
  2. Won't go up and down consistently even with the pressure cranked. The Berkon/Valley design helps increase leverage. Secondarily, there is no way to crank the tongue up to detach from the truck when the house is down. You have to lift the house all the way up, then crank it up off the truck, and then drop it down. First world problem, yes, but still annoying and easily fixed with a minor re-design.
  3. I'm sure it'll get worked out, but their tongue design is going to have to change to increase leverage in order for it to properly work. Similar to the Berkon/Valley frames. It sounds like some of the other issues they've had with previous models (all sizes) have been changed, so that is a good thing. Yetti does build a very nice house!
  4. Glenn Beck is a quack, and should probably be housed in a padded room. I used to really enjoy him before he went off the deep end a couple years back. Tomi will be fine. She has a big following, which I think will probably follow her wherever she lands. I'd prefer she ditch the b*tchy woman routine, but it seems to be working well for her.
  5. The fiberglass is interesting. It certainly won't dent, and should save some major weight. They had(have?) a major issue with their hydraulic trailers. A friend has one of their flagship 2017 models and the hydraulics have a lot of issues, for which it has been back in 3 times with no resolution. I'd sit out a hydraulic Yetti for at least one more year, and maybe more if they don't change the tongue design partway through their 2018 model year.
  6. I have heard about guys adding a new membrane over the old, but I wouldn't go that route. It shouldn't be too hard to pull off with a heat gun. Fleet Farm sells it off the roll by the foot. Really good pricing.
  7. Are you sure it's an Ice Castle? I thought they always used the galvanized steel roof, but maybe the older ones used rubber at some point.
  8. Correct. I misread the question in my post.
  9. Overlap everything. I run the siding past the wall and onto the frame a couple inches, and then put the diamond plate over that.
  10. That is the best I've seen in a couple years now.
  11. 1" tape with a 1" overlap.
  12. Ice

    Sorry, I was a bit delayed on my response on this. We were on Winnie this weekend with 28" of great ice everywhere. We drove across the entire lake (what seemed like) 25 times. Diesel trucks and big tandem wheel houses everywhere.
  13. Also never had a problem with my 15 Duramax. Every fill of DEF was done at the Holiday on 169/41 in the Shakopee/Chaska area. I'd say it took anywhere from 2-3 minutes pumping very slowly. Best thing I did was get rid of the entire DEF system. EFI Live (Kory Willis tunes) + 4" Flo Pro + MBRP Quiet Tone Muffler and about 4 hours took care of DEF fills at 3am in the middle of a road trip, regens, poor mileage, etc.
  14. I'm a Realtor, so I get to "make my own schedule". December/January tends to be a slow time, so ice fishing is the perfect hobby. February/March is sketchy, but I can pull it off with the combination of good people back in the office, and a wifi hot spot and laptop in the fish house. We ended up holding off for a day with this wind, and I think LOTW walleye trip is going to turn in to Winnie perch trip instead. My guess is that with the bi-polar weather we've had over the last few days, I won't need very many minnows...
  15. Come on guys! Just gotta go where the ice is! Heading up to LOTW tomorrow for 5 days. Still 30" up there.
