  1. The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs. Here are pics for the doors.
  2. They make a rail that when it slides closed it drops about 1/4". I have these and they are nice for driving down the road but my 3 and 5 year olds can't open them up! For the doors, I used an rv type style clip. To open you have to push in and then they pop open.
  3. Thinking about building a new Fish House. Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing? Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
  4. Did you ever weigh the house?
  5. What has everyone used for a fish house stove and are you happy with it. My last fish house, I actually put in an apartment style stove because I had it up in the V of the house and had room. This time I want to put it over the wheel well on a hydraulic frame. My main concern is it is big enough to make pizza's inside, but can you do anything else with the actual stove part or are they all too small?
  6. I tried adding a point to the 1st gen ION. It does screw up the leading edge of the blade and doesn't cut at all.
  7. Do you level house out before you put walls on? I built a house about 3 years ago but I had wood studs. we cut all to the same length and put on house. when we would raise and lower house the frame would bend and walls would move. so we took all the walls off, leveled frame completely on blocks, and built the entire house like this. after walls, roof, siding and spray foam were on it never moved again. just curious if you have noticed this? we only noticed when we lowered house to ground the bottom of frame didn't touch ground everywhere.
  8. Sorry, I just realized you asked this question. Here are a few pics from the top.
  9. What frame are you going with?
  10. What about AGM batteries?
  11. They are mounted from the underside with a few small screws, then we foamed around them. Works out pretty well.
  12. I bought a tandem axle from Berkon and built a custom wheel house 3 years. The frame has held up very well I think. I went with all led lights. Spray foam top to bottom. I also mounted and spray foamed my hole liner/sleeves in right away. I would build the sidewalls nice and tall. I think mine is 7' 8" high in the center. This is nice for sleeping on top bunk. I went with 2- 15k btu empire direct vent furnaces. One towards the front of the house and one towards the back. These are nice a quite and heat the house evenly.
  13. I don't have a diesel, but I had my crew cab ram 1500 and 28' tandem wheel house out on 14"up at Red a few years back. Total weight was about 15000 lbs. I would prefer a minimum of 16" from now on though. Just remember you can still go down on 20"+. Ice is NEVER safe, and common sense goes a long way!
  14. No offense, but this is a terrible statement."One should never tow a trailer equal too or greater than the vehicle doing the towing." I guess if you live by this, all semis should be banned from the road... It just takes common sense to pull trailers. Watch your speeds and stopping distance.
