I think the main thing you have to do is change the orifice. I would be very carful to make sure the furnace works right before putting it in a fish house, you don't want to take the long knapp.

im a hvac installer you need to remove the gas valve, change the orfices, and a small spring, now it depends if you have the lp orfices and spring if not you will probally need to find model and model number and take the valve into a heating company they should be able to help you get the right size orfices

Well I don’t know what you have exactly but normally it only takes a nozzle (orifice) change and maybe a regulator change. I would check with your local propane dealer not just a refill station but an actual place that sells all propane accessories as well…

Well I know that is a empire but I haven't found a # yet. Called a local HVAC and they acted as if it is brain surgery I know that it isn't that hard I have had friends that have done it in the past. Wonder if menards or the h. depot would be able to help?

Not sure how knowledgeable your are about heaters and such but i had the same problem. I just removed the orfice and drilled out the hole that the orfice was in and tapped threads in there so i could install a holly carburator jet. I had to adjust the size of the jet so the heater would run properly and it works fine now. I would suggest not doing this if your not comfortable with doing it yourself. I would also suggest running it before installing in your house if you do decide to do it.

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
