  1. 2018 Yetti Re-design

    This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
  2. Atv Tracks

    You want the wider tracks. I've had tracks for years and the wider the better.
  3. Drop down tandem toy hauler

    I've only seen one toy hauler fish house that was big enough for a ranger/general and that was years ago down at the ice fishing show. Full hydraulic and that thing must have weighed 6000lbs empty.
  4. Wfco Converter output?

    I haven't checked my draw yet, it will be on the list. Now that I know I need a fuse in that location it will be actually charging the battery. My house has not left the shop, still finishing it up.
  5. Wfco Converter output?

    Yeah if you would, I thought I had read it should be a 40 amp? I think that is the size of the reverse polarity fuse. It never dawned on me until I read earlier that a fuse should be in that location, of course had I disconnected the lead and checked the output I would have discovered it as well, but still wouldn't have known why. The book/manual makes no mention of adding a fuse in that location.
  6. Wfco Converter output?

    Just was doing a little bit of google research and I might have figured out the problem, I don't have a fuse in the spot above the reverse polarity fuse. From what I read a fuse should be there to send power out the red wire to the battery. The manual is a little vague on that or I just plain missed it. Now if someone could verify that for me it would be awesome? My house is up north at the farm so I can't just walk out and check. Thanks!
  7. Wfco Converter output?

    I think it is the 8735 converter. Battery is a new group 27 Cabelas AGM (only 1 battery). I can't rewire my lights and stereo to the converter. I have an 8 gage power and ground from the battery running up the to wheel well storage where I have an additional 12v fuse panel for lights and radio. The sub amp is also wired directly to the battery. I have not checked the output from the converter, its brand new also but that doesn't guarantee it works. The furnace is a 30K suburban and it is wired to the converter. Reason I know there is a problem is on Saturday I was messing around with the radio, setting the amp etc. and noticed that the led lights would flicker when the bass would hit, and yes I was running the radio hard. Checked the battery voltage and it was down to 11.5 volts with the converter plugged in. Hooked up my Battery Tender charger set to 8 amps and the battery recovered and was fine after that.
  8. Wfco Converter output?

    I've been looking for the amp hour charging rate for the typical WFCO converter, I can't seem to find any information on it. I don't think mine is keeping up with the battery draw. The only thing I have connected to the WFCO supplied dc output is the furnace. My stereo/amp and other fuse panel is connected directly to the battery. I'm thinking I need to add another charging source to the battery.
  9. Hydraulic Frames

    I have the same furnace. It's actually quieter than I thought it would be. The Atwood 18k in my old house was noisier. I mounted mine under the front couch. The plan is to box it in & sound deaden the plywood like Lip Ripper did. I wanted it in the middle of the house to blow heat to the back and also at the door. My last house had the furnace in the front & 16' is too far to push heat.
  10. Rod Holders for Perm houses

    Nice storage spot! Good idea
  11. Hydraulic Frames

    I'm not sure on how much foam it took. It has over 2" on the bottom. What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job. So the price to do a cold house is more. The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction. The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
  12. Screws for aluminum

    Yes no reason for stainless in this application.
  13. Hydraulic Frames

    Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it. Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it. I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220. The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing.
  14. Screws for aluminum

    Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal. #0148433 #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long. I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each. Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack. I installed with an impact driver. Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation. For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
