Send me a signed blank check and your portable and I will do it. smile

(just kidding)

It really doesn't take much time at all to do your own mods.

There use to be a product you could by called the "Ice House Organizer" - they had a HSOforum but It does not seem to be up anymore. You can try calling their number (763)428-5073. If they went out of business, maybe they still have some left over stock you could purchase.

It was a complete insert/mod that you dropped into your portable shack sled for keeping things organized.

Never heard of anyone willing to do such a thing.

Time can be a hard commodity to find at times- but for something like modifying a portable fish house, you can find the time to do it. --- Or, maybe you just don't want to do it??

It can be done in a day or weekend at best.

As Nike is infamous for saying... "Just do it"

trouble with having some one else do it, is you may not like the end result, then you are either stuck with it or forced to redo yourself.

Yea, I agree, I would do it yourself. Took me a weekend of work on mine. Great thing to do between summer and winter fishing or vise versa.

Alright thanks for the input. I'll try to find some spare time and do it myself.

There's a company called Northern Toboggan and Sled that does some cool stuff with portables and customizing them. Might get some pointers.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
