  1. I have a lake place in Nevis, and keep the thermostat at 50 when I leave. I have a monitor system that calls me when the temperature fall below my low limit, and if the power goes out. It an older unit that works over the phone line. It’s saved my a$$ twice now. I plan on updating to a WiFi thermostat since I now has WiFi there.
  2. Dumping Cable for Streaming

    I believe with Sling Blue, you can stream to 3 devices.

  5. Snowmobile dead battery

    When ever I buy something that has a battery, I also buy one of these. I must have 10 of them by now. On some of my stuff I don’t even take the battery out like my pontoon and boat, I put them in the garage and hook up the maintainer for the winter. I put them on my lawn tractors, my atv’s utv’s, motorcycles, everything. I was buying batteries all the time, not anymore. I even have to put one on my Toyota Highlander that I keep at the cabin because it supposedly has 26 computers, and if I don’t drive it for 2 weeks the battery will be dead. I’ve even had the maintainers bring suspect batteries back to life. Buy them on sale, there worth it.
  6. Small deer

    I have been deer hunting in the Nevis (Hubbard co.) area for about 5 years and can’t get over how small the physical size of the deer are in this area. Sometimes is hard to tell the Does from the fawns. When I see these deer I think to myself, it hardly worth shooting it for the little meat you get. I use to hunt 20 miles east, in the Walker area, and the deer were much larger. Can anyone explain what might be going on in this area. I know there is not a lot of corn in the area, like further south, is it genetics? Kind of frustrating.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  10. Fish House rv Build

    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

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Screws for aluminum

    Aczr2k, So zinc plated screws can be used with aluminum?
  15. 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?
