new fish house questions

7 posts in this topic

Im building a new house 7 x 16 with v nose is there any other place to get fish hole lights besides fish house supply theres seem pricy.

How well would the 12v dc rope light work? Can you get them cut to length?

How well do the solar chargers work did you mount them to the roof or to the outside wall?

Im putting a rubber roof on. Is the menards rubber the same thickness as a commercial rubber or wont it matter.

Were can a guy get the aluminum strip to fasten down the rubber.

Can flat screen tvs freeze without any problems.

thanks in advace. nutless

adam,

would think there'd be several options with the led lights, just do a search.

where would you be putting the rope light? doubt if you can cut to length. you'd have to rig that up pretty special i think if you're just using that for your hole lights.

i'd like to hear about the rubber as well. the fm ultimate fish house has a menards rubber roof, but i don't know what other options are out there. the aluminum strip...not sure either, but ask deadminnowcatcher on the fm ultimate fish house topic.

plasma screen will freeze, some lcd's do not but i wouldn't risk it. lcd stands for liquid crystal display.

nutless...umm, does that mean what i think it means or does it just mean that you are married?

The rubber roof from Menards is very durable. I have had it on a 20' v-nose house with no issues. Menards also sells the aluminum strips that hold it around the edges.

If you check hsolist, you'll find LED string lights. I put 2 48 LED strands and 1 96 strand in my 6.5X17 drop down and found that they put out enough light to do everything. I actually like them better than the 4 RV lights I installed. It's less straining on the eyes, and I've found that they make a nearly shadowless environment. They're installed where the ceiling and wall meet.

I used the Menards rubber roof and adhesive. Good stuff with plenty of thickness I feel. If you run back to the carpet section, you'll find aluminum transition strips for less than the official rubber roof trim.

Hope that helps!

If you are just looking for hole lights, go to the junkyard and pick up some sidemarker lights.

Easy to mount, they have rubber around them to make them durable and the lights and bulbs are cheap. Plus, those lights are bright. Just be sure to put them where you can't see the light when you are fishing- gets a little annoying if you have to look at that light.

Ive learned a lot lately a commercial roofer told me the menards roofing rubber is .045 thick commercial is .060 he said for what I need it for menards is plenty good besides that its EASIER to use you need to glue it down thou.

Has anybody here mounted the furnace In a bench in the back do your feet sweat in the back or I was gonna put it in the v and aim at the door any opinions. thanks for any advice

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
