      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Adding an LP Gas Range

Recommended Posts

I bought a used wheelhouse and am looking to add an LP gas range in the V-front portion of the house. Right now the V is empty so I'm assuming with my extremely limited carpentry skills I can frame something out of 2X2's and slide the range in place. Can I use wood as the cabinet or do I have to use some kind of non-combustible material?

Also, the gas line comes in the V front at the floor through a rubber hose. Do I put a T in the hose to split off gas for the stove?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Here are some pics of the range I put in my last house. I framed it up with 2x2's. There were instalation instructions with mine as to the clearences for combustable materials. I don't remember what they were exactly, but the sides were pretty much zero clearence. The back might have been a little more, but that shouldn't be a big deal for you anyway.

As far as the LP line... I used a "T" fitting inside the house to go to both the range and the FA furnace. I used a standard single regulator on the tank outside, and a single line went into the house.

Thanks Ace. Was there plywood along the sides of the oven or did it just sit inside the framing - thus - nothing touching the sides of it?

Also, my 100 pound tank that feeds my Empire 15,000 BTU direct vent heater does not have a regulator on it. Do I need to add one so both the heater and oven get the right amount of gas pressure?

There was no plywood around my range. No need for it in my situation. I don't think it would be a problem though.

About the regualtor... I have never ran an LP appliance without one. I thought you had to, but I'm no expert.

Sapper - thanks for the info and the help. It's greatly appreciated.

How did you make your cabinet doors? Did you cut them out of the facing of your cabinet and glue a wood frame around them?

The doors I made seperate. I made the outside frame, and inlayed the T&G so its flush with the frame in the back.

You wouldn't have any pictures of how you have things wired underneath would you? Not just your stove but all your electrical. Did you install a fuse box and hook everything into there and then hook your battery up to that block?

Sorry I don't have wiring pictures of this house. I sold this one last fall. I am working on a new one right now though, and I have a post on here called "Finally starting my '09 Fishhouse project". I am to the wiring stage now, just trying to find time to do it. I'll try to describe how I do it though for now.

I run all of my lights and stereo off of one set of wires (a power and a ground), and I power the furnace off another set. I do not use fuse boxes. I put an in-line fuse link (I use the ones that take car fuses) in each one of the hot wires. Basically its like 2 sets of jumper cables... 1 set for the lights/stereo... 1 set for the furnace. I use aligator clips as connectors for quick and easy battery changes. They make a good connection too. This may not be the best way to do it, but it works good for me. As far as your range goes, it should not need any power to it unless it has an electronic ignitor or something like that which needs power to work. The one in the picture I posted is an LP range and you light the oven and the burners manually, therefore it needs no electricity to work. Just LP!

I'll post pics on my other post when I start wiring so keep an eye out if you're curious.

You need a 2-stage regulator for any LP appliance or furnace. You only need one for the whole shack.

Thanks for the great advice and help. I certainly appreciate helping a newbie here.

I checked last night. There is a regulator attached at the tank with 1 hose coming into the house. I'm thinking I can splice the hose inside the house and add a brass T to split off to the oven.

Any advice to share to make my stove installation go smoothly?

Again... thanks for everything.

IMO have a Licensed plumber do the splice of the pipe and the hookup. LP can make your house go BOOM if you don't know what you are doing . Cost a few $$$ but what is your life worth ?????

    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
