Fish House Air Conditioner SALE!!!

8 posts in this topic

Just a heads up to everyone.  Amazon is having a crazy good deal right now on Whynter portable air conditioners.  I know a couple others have done this as well but I put one of these ACs in my shack and ran the hoses through a fish hole so I can use my shack as a camper during the summer.  I'm kicking myself now for buying mine AC last month but I still got a good deal on mine.  If you get one, please make sure it is a DUAL hose model.  The single hose models won't work very well inside an ice shack.  I got the ARC-14s 14k BTU dual hose.  Normally $510+, I got mine on sale for $463, but amazon has them on sale for $335 with free shipping if you're a prime member.  Deal ends 11:59pm tonight (7/26) so hurry up!

I have been looking at these all summer waiting for a dual hose deal.... Luckily ( and unluckily) my brother in law has one that he will sell me for $100. Not a dual hose, but my house is only a 6.5x14 that is 100% spay foamed  so I should be good

Well, you talked me into it!

You have a beautiful house, state of the art in-floor heating, top notch work -  just a small suggestion, look at the reviews on the amazon site for this portable before buying. 13% rated 1 and only 45% as 5. Read the 1's to get a feel for why some dislike unit.

Thank you for the heads up!  I actually made an attempt to cancel with Amazon after quickly looking at the 1 stars, but it was too late.  I dug into all the reviews a little bit more, and there seems to be some consistency with people trying to use it for too large of space.  I'm hopeful it'll end up working.  It's rated for 500sq ft, and I'll only be cooling 160sq ft.  Plus YettiStyle guaranteed it'll work well ;)

Also saw a number of the one star reviews mentioning cooling a porch, which is not likely insulated as well as a sprayfoamed fish house.  Seems weird a lot of people said its cheap plastic but the thing weighs 80 lbs.  Cant be all plastic at that weight!

I have a theory that people are getting dumber by the day, and these type of things don't disprove my theory.

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
