I basically zip tied it to the front and back poles while cutting openings for the velcro straps.

I'll let ya know whether it works or not.

M1 , thats a nice set up, How effective is the heat retention with the way it looks in the pictures, with the single strip of insulation?

i have the same shack, and was looking to add the same insulation this season, did you make seteprate pieces for the sides?

I went out today and the stuff worked great.

Better heat retention (you could feel it and it was warm) and no condensation after 4 hours on the ice.

I really like the shack also...warm, comfy, and easy to pull.

Now...if I could just get the auger to start like it should!

Thanks for sharing. I picked up some today and will be installing it ASAP. With this cold weather and my thin canvas anything will help.

Did you run it down to the sled in the back?

I ran it from the front pole that lays on the ice to the back pole. I couldn't run it to the sled because there was nothing to tie off on down there.

I paid $13.99 for a roll of 24" x 25' on sale at M**ards.

did you notice condensation on the roof that is exposed and not covered by relfectix? My otter den roof is 51" wide and the reflectix is 48" wide. I was wondering if that extra inch+ on each side is gonna give me fits......

No condensation anywhere on the exposed portions of the roof...I have about an inch or so on either side of the roof.

I don't think you will have a problem.

Anyone have some of the 48" stuff left from their install. I would buy it from you, but I dont want to buy a roll of the stuff considering how little I would need for my Otter Den.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
