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.

    • I hear you Paceman work just seem to all pile up. Finally seeing and end in sight. Good luck with the barassica, the new turned dirt in the pictures above by the Muddy blind will be brassica. Just did that last weekend.    
    • Mine were freeze dried.I would think the live ones would die and rot pretty fast wouldn't they?
    • Did anybody take the trip to Sparta last week?  Believe this was my 9th year attendidng, what a great, fun shoot.   There's another in Aurora, MN early September I'm thinking about going to.  Anyone who enjoys 3D archery, or just likes rubbing elbows with hundreds of other archers should definetly put this on their list of things to do.  
    • That looks GREAT! You did right on the wheel wells, diamond plate is horrible to keep up. Mine is getting either POR 15 or bedliner this fall.Keep going, ice comes pretty fast when your trying to finish a build. Plus it's a lot nicer working conditions than Late November. Very good pictures, these build are fun to watch. 
    • WOW!  More wow to come.  😎
    • Great looking plots and Set-ups! My early season clover plots are doing very well! This weekend I will work on the fall brassica plots, have 3 small ones, about 1/2 acre each to put in. Can't get to them with a tractor so will be doing the tilling with a walk behind garden tiller. Going to be a ton of work but this rain will be great to soften up the ground. I will also be sliding a few portables around and I need to finish to more enclosed permanent stands. I usually do all this stand work in April/May but this past spring I just did not get to it...
    • Nice! I will put a few out this weekend.....
    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
