  1. Did a couple more pork loins today for a friend who’s father passed away. It is about the 15th of the summer and prob the best….. but I have no clue why. I usually cut the rib end off and smoke separately as pulled pork. If you haven’t done this, you need to try it. Cook till 165 then wrap with some liquid of choice till 200. Better than pork butt imho. Ran out of room on the tin, so decided to cut off four chops for the family. Cut them off while slicing and warm them back thru on the grill at high heat…. Just enough to get the good grill marks!
  2. I agree w/ Wanderer. Having a miltona or similar frame built could be the best option as long as you can get the rest of the house to stay together during the transfer. The frame is definitely the base compent from which everything is built from. It will take some temporary internal framing and bracing, but is doable. Truthfully, it sounds like a fun project to me! As far as skid houses go.... I guess that would be an option - but only if you have a place to store it on shore during the summer. Trying to get it loaded onto a trailer would be a bear. I am still trying to grasp how
  3. G&S I believe. http://www.gstrailers.com/
  4. Yes.... need some pics of the frame rust
  5. Good to hear from ya LRG! I used 3 coats of polycrilic on mine and hit it with steel wool and a tack cloth in between to knock out any bubbles. It has stood up very well. As an added safety though, I did run a 3" of diamond plate around the bottom as a baseboard
  6. Looks like you can order it in @ lowes. I have had higher quality going through Lowes than Mnards . https://www.lowes.com/pd/EverTrue-3-5625-in-x-8-ft-V-Groove-Gold-Pine-Wall-Panel/3056263
  7. Folks that have metal studs have used 3m VHB on aluminum sheets. I have seen folks attach metal onto wood studs and use the tape on top of that..... not sure that I would trust that, seems like a lot of room for failure
  8. What I have seen others do is run 3/4" marine plywood directly on the frame, top that with foam and then use 1/4" subfloor on top of that. You are going to want to make sure that you get the most rigid base on top of the frame.
  9. @Getanet Did you ever end up changing the wiring then?
  10. Saw your last post (sorry... don't spend a whole lot of time in here during the off season). Where did you end up getting a frame from?
  11. I believe that you are looking for HPDE. https://www.menards.com/main/building-materials/panel-products/plastic-utility-panels/1-8-x-4-x-8-hdpe-panel/blkhdpe48x96x118/p-1561703293092.htm So, just so I have this correct... you are going to insulate between the cross members and run HPDE under the frame and 3/4 plywood on top??
  12. I have built a few houses in my day.... You are going to love not having to carry that battery back and forth!!
  13. Here is what you will need.... https://www.amazon.com/WFCO-WF8712PB-WF-8712PB-Converter-Charger-12/dp/B004LF4R40/ref=asc_df_B004LF4R40/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312142020868&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17499474878855094264&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9020351&hvtargid=pla-569191245025&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Leviton-5278-CWP-Straight-Flanged-Receptacle/dp/B003ATXIBG/ref=sr_1_19?dchild=1&keywords=Shoreline+plug&qid=1619695446&sr=8-19 https://www.menards
  14. I assume that the battery currently sits under a bench or something now? If so, then this is a piece of cake. Buy a WFCO 35 amp converter. Then all you need to do is connect you existing 12VDC lights and furnace to the fused circuit, connect you battery, and mount a shoreline plug on the outside of the shack and connect it to the converter. From there you can hook up an additional 120VAC plug that will be operational while you are running your generator. When hooked up to a shoreline power source, the converter provides separate DC power while also charging your battery (built in 3-stage char
