Drilling in house

Recommended Posts

I just bought a new house on wheels,when I drop the house it moves about 6 inches,So is there some way I can catch the ice from my 12 volt auger so it will not pile up on my carpet.

We usually mark the holes with our auger (just a couple turns will do) then move the house of, drill, clean and move it back. that's the best we've figured out. We use gas augers so this method also help with the auger exhaust. You obviously don't have that with your 12v.

If it fits in your holes, cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon pail. You should be able to set it in the hole and run her wide open!

I have a 6x12 house on wheels what I do is leave the house hooked to the truck dont take it off the ball. Drill all your holes out then drop the house down no snow on the floor. Bob

Ok didnt understand why it moved, only six inches can you move the house back six inches after you drill, by hand or is it too big. One other thing I have done take cardboard with make a cone in the hole then drill most all the snow will stay down the hole not on your floor. I hate a wet floor nice and dry is best. Good Luck Bob

the problem is,the house sits on the ice when holes are drilled,they must make some kind of plastic thing that can catch the ice and get rid of it outside,my house is 7 by 20 thanks again Bob

Then why don't you lay some plastic on the floor, then you can carry it out when you are done. On my house I let it down most of the way then mark the holes. Then move the house and drill. they come out pretty close.

    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?
