Reflectix in portables

4 posts in this topic

I have a Clam 6800 an am wndering how you guys put up your reflectix insulation. I can put it up on the 2 poles in the middle but every time you teardown do you foldit up or how do you guys attach it. Just spend the time and is it worth the extra heat?

I have an otter so I just leave it up between the canvas and poles. With yours I would think that you would either have to take it down or use duct tape to keep it in place. Do you have velcro straps on the canvas to attach to your poles? If you did I would cut small slits where the velcro straps are and feed them through the reflectix to keep it in place. I used the 48" wide roll one strip down the middle of the roof of my house and I was in business.

Some guys use the foil tape to connect the sheets together.

And yes it is worth the time to put it in your house, most of the heat goes out through the roof of the house, no ice up or dripping since I did it to mine.

If you do put it in your shack take some pic's and post them so we can see how it worked.

I,ve used it before in my portable. I used 3M velcro srtips and hot melt glued them to the shack and the reflectic material. It worked great to help keep the heat in. Only disadvantage was if your out there all day it ices up between the two pretty bad. You can get it at any Menards Home Depot it looks like aluminum foil bubble wrap

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
