  1. Wheelhouse flooring help

    rl_sd, if you mean "save big money" , yes papadarv, Snowbound, do you think the Herculiner, or the Deck over will adhere to green treated or would I have to put down an underlayment? Agronomist, I thought of that also. I put that in one of my basement rooms.
  2. Wheelhouse flooring help

    Does anyone know how the wheelhouse manufacturers put down the rubber coin flooring so it won't ripple? I'm on my third attempt to get my g- flooring ( rubber coin ) to lay flat with no ripples. I've tried laying it out in the sun, installing it on a warm day, stapling the edges, the flooring is not touching anything except of course the catch covers, which are screwed on top of the flooring. I get the same results every time. Should I try adhesive? I've been avoiding that because as others have mentioned, it may be a dam to remove, and I have read that it may not adhere to green treated material. Could I be having this problem because I have a Yetti, and the aluminum expands and contracts more? The house color is black and it does get very hot inside during the summer. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated before I give up and find another type of flooring.

    Papa Bear, Great job! That is one awesome house. Can you tell me how thick your pocket door is, and did you recess your tongue & groove into the stiles and rail of the door. If possible could you post a photo of the back and side of the door? Again, great craftsmanship on everything! Thanks

  6. Finished Yetti 8x16'

    Nice looking shack YettiStyle! I would like it if you would post photos of your table setup. Thank for posting this, many great ideas.
  7. Crappie Stew

    Now hold on there Thunder. l can't confirm this, because I've not yet tried it, but there was an article in the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer about people back in the day, that would laugh if you fillet the skin off a northern. They said that is where all the flavor is.
  8. Screws for aluminum

    Aczr2k, So zinc plated screws can be used with aluminum?
  9. Screws for aluminum

    Thanks all, Aluminum rivets would work for the furring, if I can find long enough ones. I need to find larger screws to install my D rings for the ATV tie downs. I want them to go through the floor and into the aluminum cross members. The screws Yetti uses look like construction screws, but I've never seen a self tapping construction screw?
  10. Screws for aluminum

    What type of screws would be best to attach firing strips or anything to aluminum, that won't cause corrosion? Does anyone know what type of screws Yetti uses? Thanks
  11. Wheelhouse battery circuit breaker/ # of batteries

    Also, on the battery question, I do have a Honda 2000 and an AC circuit already wired through the converter. I was just wondering what most houses run on, one or two batteries. Thanks again.
  12. Wheelhouse battery circuit breaker/ # of batteries

    WFCO ultra 3 model WF-8735P the manual I have says nothing about protecting the D.C. Input, the 10 awg red wire that needs to be connected to the battery positive. Do I Need to protect this wire with a 30 amp circuit breaker at the battery? Thanks MLR, and Yetti for your help.
  13. Is one deep cycle battery enough if you have a power converter/charger? Also, I know it depends on the AWG of the battery cables, but I was thinking of installing a 40 or 50 amp circuit breaker at the battery positive cable. What do the factory built house usually come with? My converter/charger is a 30 amp, but that is the rating of the output. Thanks All
