According to Fish House Supply, they're ideal for ice houses 14 to 20 feet. I'd say yeah, it would work.

Hawk I bought your neighbor Mels big pig of a house. They bought a different one and me and a couple guys had the great idea of redoing this one. Well its coming alone but didnt expect this much work. It was pretty much in need of a total renovation. It will be nice when its done. I haven't heard of anybody having this heater and was wondering if it would work. You can buy them for under $200 so thought what the hey.

I saw his new house and didn't even think about sell the old. The ventless heaters will put alot of humidity in the air, which causes alot of problems in a house even if a window is left open. I know alot of people use them. I think not having a fresh air draw caused alot of the problems in that house anyway, That and not putting a wood on the metal tubing.

We went and put wood on the metal tubing and then put up a vapor barrier. We are now puting some pretty heavy paneling in now. We also removed every screw in the sheet metal and replaced with the rubber washer selve tapping screws a size bigger. Then we caulked every seam on the house. I am pretty confident it wont leak but i also dont want to a heater that is gonna make vapor moisture. This may not be the ticket then. Prolly go with a direct vent wall mount.

Also, if you're sleeping in it, vented is so much safer. You don't want to wake up dead.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.

    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
