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.
