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

    • I think they are a valiant and hard working people who suffered under Communist  soviet rule for many years.  I like their sausage also.
    • He will probably sue most of us as well........
    • So what do you think about the poles?
    • "You can't let the people in this country that are the poor people, the people without the money and resources go without healthcare," Trump told the MSNBC program. "I just can't even imagine. You're sick and you can't even go to a doctor. I say one thing, can you not let 25 percent of the people of the country because they have no money go without something?"
        This sure sounds like some form of government sponsored healthcare to me..
    • Your preferred solution would be "nothing", right?   So, sounds like your solution is in the running...   That would be to repeal the whole kit and caboodle and let the people, the employers, the insurance companies, the drug companies and the medical providers duke it out.   I have no information as to what Trump's intentions are beyond repealing ACA.  I'm sure you could find out with a few minutes googling  
    • Nah, you posted a one work reply.  And folks were reefing on d2e over it.  Just noting it was PB that made the original mistake.  
    • .....and I'm not even mad at my bro.
    • The walleye have been MIA on the Iowa River around Coralville this fall. It is not the high water, I don't think--high water spots that have worked great in the past have not produced any walleye for me this year. Not much luck for white bass and wiper, either.   What I have gotten in to the last couple weeks is a nice smallmouth and spotted bass bite, of all things. This is in one of my spots that seldom produced black bass in the past with water levels where they are now. No huge fish, but lots of smallies and spots up to 15" or so. Also a lot of the 6" black crappies that seem to be everywhere on Lake Macbride and the Iowa River this fall.
    • I was thinking they were after the Smallys and that it must have been a tourney with all the boat traffic.
