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.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
