Moon Lake Refuge

Propane hatch??

Recommended Posts

So I see posts on the for sale pages on FB of some pretty rough looking shacks.  One guy yesterday was selling an 8 foot house(frame was 8 foot) with the wheels extending out past the house.  I thought houses needed to be under 8'6 and I wonder if any buyers will be told that.  Beside the point.  The propane tanks were mounted on the outside of the wall right next to the furnace.  In the wall he has a hinged door for access to an enclosed propane storage area that he also uses as a freezer...  Would you ever consider this?  Seems like it could open up a world of issues with propane leaking into the house.

Federal Regulations (CFR), 23 CFR Part 658 states maximum width (excluding mirrors) at 102.36" or 8.53 ft. except in Hawaii where width is 108" but I don't think anyone needs a wheel house in Hawaii. If the body is 8' the wheels need to be under the body. 6'6" is about max you can go with the wheels extending past the frame. Described propane is scary, and I would not even consider parking my rig within 100 yards of him.

Up till 6-8 years ago nobody cared. Most old 8 footers converted to wheel houses had wheels sticking out, including me, but we went to the lake and dropped them. Law Enforcement could have cared less, now we run them all over so they care now.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
