fans in the ice house?

12 posts in this topic

I've heard of people putting small fans in their portable to circulate the air, any advice on where to get one and powering it?

nmitchell17, I run 3-4.5" computer fans in my house,1 on each window and 1 in the double doors. They keep the windows frost free and the doors from frosting up. In the process, I've found that they also help keep the floor warmer. I generally fish wearing my moccasins. I have each fan on a seperate switch, so if I see a need, I turn them on, as needed, and they do they're job. I have found that sometimes, I need to run 1 side continously vs the other side, not at all. I believe it depends on the wind. I got my fans from Northern, if it helps. I just run mine off the 12v house system. Phred52

You can get small (3" to 5") fans that are 12 volt at Northern Tool. Got a 5" in there a couple of years ago and run it with a vex battery along with my lighting. Works great and very cheap.

I also got my small pc case fans at Northern. I run two of them in my otter lodge, I mounted them to aluminum brackets and hang them from my center ceiling support. I power them off an extra 12 volt battery, I use a 4.5 amp hour battery and it runs my lights and fans all day.

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
