      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Portable cover problem

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding a repair I need to make on the cover of the portable I just bought. I bought a new "Frabill XLTwin" with a bench seat aprox three weeks ago. I was told it was last year's model. I wanted this model for about four years. It has worked great for the few times I had used it. Yesterday, I was fishing at a "FishingMN gathering", and the person I was with allowed the door to touch the heater. It burned a hole in the fabric and through the zipper on the door. He felt pretty bad about it, and I was trying to hide the sickening feeling that was developing in my stomach. I think there should be a "Velcro" patch on the bottom of the door as well as on the top.(just a suggestion) I was wondering if anyone knows if solutions to this problem are available. Is it possible to obtain a replacement cover, or a replacement front piece which could be stitched onto the old cover? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Chris

Take the cover off and have a new zipper sewn in. If they can find a match to the original zipper they'll just replace the zipper on the door. While your at it have them put that Velcro patch on the door and cover. Call around and you should be able to find a shop that will do this for you.

Thanks for the suggestion. I live in Coon Rapids. Does anyone know of a shop that might be able to make this repair? I know very little about zippers,seams, or thread. Home Ec. wasn't my best subject.

I had the same thing happen to my Polor Sport pull over. I took it to Canvas Plus in Rogers and they did a great job. Since you are in coon rapids and they are just off 94, should be a quick 20 minute trip over there.

I would contact Frabill customer service at www.frabill.com explain the circumstances and see what Kellie has to say. They have been very good in helping me with any problems that I have had.
Frabill is the best!!
Good Luck

Hey Wounded Minnow, Canvas Craft in Anoka should be able to repair it for you. They are right off Hwy 10 by Diamonds Sports Bar if you know where that is.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
