How about bluetooth speakers?

The stereo I’m putting in is just Bluetooth and radio. Decided to put in under the dinette, easy to wire as the batteries will be back there. Looking back now I probably would have left that out and got a nice portable speaker. Oh well it’ll be nice to have in the end. FC16061A-0D86-4A02-BB1A-56ED7ABCAF96.thumb.jpeg.270d3ffde482c5f65f760bc2ca5be155.jpeg5F0D4D2C-93CA-4356-A13C-D73909447BBD.thumb.jpeg.d5a71aa12920423e12dd450563a16bb5.jpeg

I really liked how the counters over the wheels turned out. Still have another coat and then a clear coat. Doing the V counter also like this, window and door casings will be the same stain as well. Also got the satellite dish mounted today, the dish tailgator.

Starting to count the steps to when it’s done which is an awesome feeling!

Did you mount your tailgator on permanently?  I've been going back and forth on whether to permanently mount mine, or just put it out when I get set up and take it down when I leave.  I think it would work great permanently set up for ice fishing, but I'm nervous about when we go camping in the summer.  There will be more trees around to block the signal if I can't move it.

I did buy the mounting brackets for putting it on the roof and those are mounted on permanently. It’s just 3 nuts to take off to remove it from the brackets so it’ll be easy to take off. Still not positive if I’ll leave it on when I leave the house on the lake or remove it every time, mainly worried about someone stealing it. Although a friend of mine leaves his on permanently and hasn’t had a problem yet so I suppose we’ll see.

I didn't realize you could remove it from the bracket.  Right now I've got the tailgator sitting on one of my bunks until I set it up each time out, which is kind of a pain.  I'll have to order one of those brackets.  Thanks for the heads up!

We do the exact same with ours... too bunk, throw it on the roof when you get there.

Also made the box for the furnace and got the exterior part done, just isn’t hooked up yet.

Just curious, Why would you box the heater in like that? Just to hide it?

Yes to hide it and it’s also surrounded by fire resistant materials now. I got the suburban NT-20SEQ.

Leech, I hear you! I actually got the dinette cushions on hsolist for what I thought was a reasonable price, I’m really excited about them too!

my dad used to install floor covering in his younger days so he was a huge help with this part. 

Have the next few days off of work so should be able to get a decent amount done this week!

Bum,

nice looking house 

how did you fasten down the rubber floor? Adhesive, staples? Is it ripple free?

thanks

Cooperman,

 

i did use adhesive but don’t think I got it warm enough to properly set up. It help in some areas but some not at all. I’ll probably just put in a few staples in areas where it’s not held down and on the seams to be sure.

Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.

Berke, yes it is paneling and available at the save big money store. They have a bunch of different options.

 

Getting close to be doing, a bunch of trim work left mainly. Here’s a couple pics.

Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.

I'm not sure how good your buddies and family are at darts once they have a few pops?  But you may want to move the dart board to save your flat screen!  Just say'en!. ;)

Leech, one step ahead of you. Made sure to get a TV mount that swivels away, it can move about a foot and a half to the sides and actually can turn it all the way so the screen isn’t facing the back. I know without a doubt that TV would be broken by the end of the year if I didn’t get that mount! 

Got a good portion of what’s left done today, just a few minor things left and it’s ready for the maiden voyage!

The one I got was the only one that Wally mart had that fit the tv that size and swivel, but it was pretty spendy, I think $75 or 80. It was very simple to hang the tv though.

    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
