Screwless aluminum siding?

Recommended Posts

3-M VHB tape, it's a double sided tape that has been used in the trucking world for a while. It comes 1"x36 yards long, about $41 a roll. I will be using it on my new house.

So I assume its placed on the outside of all the wood studs and then between sheets of aluminum at the seams? Any local suppliers carry it?

Just googled it. Did you mean VHB tape?

Ken,

Did you start building your house yet? It sounds like it is going to be great...

Not sure when you are going to be making it up to Gogebic, just keep me posted. I am going to be buying a new Canvas Craft insulated with the tub and seat and was wondering maybe if you could pick it up for me when you make a trip. I was sent a estimate on shipping and it would be almost $100.

Yes It VHB tape. If you go on their web site there are a number of places. Make sure you look for places that sell part cases. I paid $41 a roll.

We will coming in Janary to LG. I can and will bring it then if thats not to late. We talked not going to lake of the woods this year and coming out there. You have my email and phone #, let me know. About 3 weeks field work, will turn to high gear until Thanksgiving. The fish house has been in slow mod as of late, a 6" grinder got away from me and cut 2 tendons and nicked 2 more. I am starting to get all movement back, but no strength yet, slow going. Let me know.

Not sold on anything with tape or glue in MN with the rough roads on the lake.

I'm guessing it might hold up for awhile... but when it doesn't then what?

Rip the whole shack apart? I'm a firm believer in good screws!

I am in the planning stages of building an 8'x18' tandem. I would like to hear more for sources of smooth trailer siding. Willing to pay to do it right just would like to know where you guys got good quality! How about tape, and just a few screws for insurance?

Glue or tape is the only way to go. The stuff they can do with chemicals these days is rediculous! The aluminum will tear before the glue or tape will fail, and it will never break down... not before the rest of your house does anyway.

    • Drove 16 hours, 1000 miles from Wisconsin to our destination Fort Peck Lake Montana. Our goal was to catch lake trout ice fishing. It wasn't more than 10 minutes into dropping lines in the water that we already had two hookups and one lake trout on the ice. Throughout the day we had steady action pulling lake trout through the ice. Eddie from Lakeridge Motel was super helpful in setting us up on general areas where to go, baits, and techniques. Stay tuned for Episodes Two and Three, the lake trout continued to get bigger each day!   This day we set up on a nice 40-50 foot hump surrounded by deeper 70-80 foot water. Most of them were caught on either big spoons or big jigs with tubes, largo shad, or hair jigs. If you get the chance to ever make it out there, it is definitely a neat lake to check out for some amazing opportunity to catch giant lakers, walleye, and pike. Unfortunately we never made it around to targeting walleye or pike too much, but a few weeks ago a guy pulled up a 34" 16# walleye further up river. What a neat fishery.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i74ShAZoSZg
    • Here is what I would do. Hook up the trailer and turn on the 4 way flashers or hold the brake pedal down. Now you have a known good on the right side to compare to. Go to the fuse box under the hood and locate the "TRL L TRN" and "TRL R TRN" fuses (both 10 amp fuses). With either a test light or a multi meter check the fuses for power. should see 12 volts on both or the test light should illuminate brightly. If the right side does and the left side does not, unplug the trailer and recheck. If the left side fuse now shows power the problem is in between the fuse block and the turn hazard switch or the turn hazard switch itself.   If there is good power at both of the fuses than the problem is in between the fuse block and the trailer plug. Power is going away as soon as you plug in the trailer which tells us there is probably a corroded wire in that circuit. If you where to measure the voltage at the trailer you will probably find there is still a small amount still present on the circuit. Corrosion = resistance = voltage drop under load.   You will be looking for the yellow wire that runs from the fuse block to the trailer plug. There are typically connectors in the harness near the rear of the vehicle. Find that wire in the connector and back probe it with trailer connected. If there is 12 volts the problem is towards the trailer. If there is not 12 volts the problem is towards the fuse block.
    • Bad grounds  make trailer lights do odd things. Tail llights work until you step on the brake then nothing works until you let off the brake. Tail lights off and all the lights flash when using the turn signal. It is likely not a ground issue.
    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
