      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Fish House Insurance

Recommended Posts

As a new owner of a custom wheelhouse. I am hearing stories of houses being vandalized or stolen madsick

What are the insurance options? How much does it cost? Any good companies to go through?.. or good stories of something bad turning out to be okay because the house was insured?

I am interested in insurance. Just wondering what the options are based on your experiences confused

Thanks

I have am fam and it cost about $24 a month to have fully covered for theft fire etc. Including up to $1500 for stuff inside. 0 deductable. You can get cheaper with a higher deductable and less insurance on stuff inside. They said they would cover going thru the ice too.

When you say the "do not cover anything inside" do you mean gear you leave inside or things that are part of the inside of the house like heaters, stoves, lights, bunks, built-in stereo's etc.? Or both?

The company from which I just retired and sold my agency endorsed them (wheel houses) right to the auto policy. Contents; items that can be removed and taken with you would be covered as an endorsement for contents if you wished. A skid house with our company was considered personal property under your homeowners policy and would include loss of contents just the same as your home. We had a couple of these losses paid out over the years. The cost on the wheel house coverage was dependant on the value of the unit. Bill

$50 a year !

That is awesome! I purchased my house for 5 grand... if I could insure it for 7 .. that would be unbelievable for $50 a year!

Any hints towards who you have it insured with?

I believe that if it does not have a serial number(built it yourself) then it would be covered as personal property under your homeowners. If you have a house that DOES have a serial number on it(most manufacturers of houses) then you have to insure it as an RV.

My neighbor registered his home made house. When he got the plate and tabs for it, they also sent a serial number with it that he is to attach to the frame of the house. Wouldn't this work for RV insurance as well? It's not a manufactured house, but it has a serial number.

My new house is the same. It has a title. and is registered as an RV.. sticker with a serial # on the tongue...

I would think that means I HAVE to insure it like an RV ?

8 years ago I built my house and insured it for $4300, this winter when it burned down, thats what I got $4300. Now when I priced everything out it would cost me $10,500 to rebuild it the way it was. The steel and siding cost took an unreal jump. Thats my fault for not pushing the coverage up. Also don't place your fish house under your homeowers insurance, because if you have claims, it will go up. we had 2 storm damage claims this summer and now the fish house and we got a letter about how much it could go up with the next claim. Like I had any control over any of it.

hawkeye43 i guess that is a good pt on the claim issue. If it is that cheap I guess I might insure it outside of homeowners. I just said that as that is what my agent told me was an option(the serial number thing). $41 I will do that instead. I think he was just trying to save me money.

I am confused as to why it would be insured as an RV as it should be a camper/trailer coverage and endorse the policy for contents/personal property..... I would think it would need to have an engine to be considered a RV....and if it has wheels you are most likely not covered under your homeowners policy...

Are you not worried about it being stolen, vandalised, a tree falling on it, or anything else that could happen to it....just cause it is not being used on the ice or being used at all doesn't mean that nothing can happen to it......if you can find it for under $200 a year that is just under $17 a month I think you should look into insuring it now.......

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
