Hello -

I have a fish house made by King Crow and I am looking to purchase a generator. However, the fish house has 2 plugins on the outside. One is for 12V and the other is for 110V. Both outlets are females(ends). So when you want to hook it up to a generator how does everyone do that? The generators have a female end also and the extension cord obviously only has one male end. I should maybe contact King Crow because if they make that 12V outlet standard you think they must have a cord? So? Do they make generators that have male ends or what does everyone do? Thanks for your help.

For connection of generator to house---- the cheapest option is to just cut off the female end of the extension cord and replace with a male end. But, this is what I did with the same issue so I did not ruin the whole 50' extension cord. I made my own male to male cord by going to the local harware store (very similar to Runnings) and bought 3' of 12 guage power cord, they sell it by the foot off a roll. Then bought 2 male cord ends, put the ends on the cord and it was ready for use between the house and extension cord. Total cost--$5 to $10 give or take.

Sounds like Lunker has the best bet for you. The only other thing you could do is replace the outlet on the outside of your house to a male outlet. I wonder why King Crow hasn't figured that out yet...A Honda EU2000 would be your best bet for a generator. If you only use your generator for charging your batteries and watching TV, you could get away with a Honda EU1000. But if you use any small appliances, (coffee maker, microwave, griddle) it will probably kick out...just break down, spend the $950 and buy yourself the Honda EU2000...I did a ton of research when I bought mine and nothing compares to it.

Hope this helps!

When you use your Honda Generator (by far the easiest to listen to if I am your neighbor on the ice) please, please, please, put a piece of carpet in the box or tailgate of your truck and put the generator there instead of on the ice.

I have had this affect the fishing on Red Lake so I find it hard to believe it will not affect "normal" fishing on the "southern" lakes as well. Especially when fishing in 15-20 ft. (or less) of water.

I'm just sayin.......

I already do that roughneck...Sometimes I will rough it in my house and not run the generator at all...That sucks! Boy we (I) have it rough these days don't we (I)...We (I) complain about not being able to watch Satellite TV while out on the middle of a frozen lake!

Chad...aka...roughin it.

Chad are you sure that one of those two plugins is for 110v. I to have a king crow and it had plugins but they where only for 12v. I had to wire in 110v. Maybe they do put it in factory now but I looked at there we site and nothing is said about 110v in there houses just 12v. But I would assume you know what youv'e got just making sure.

Hi Walleye,

I am sure because the guy I bought it from wired it himself for 110V. Thanks for your concern. I appreciate it.

I see that is what I did to. I didnt think they came from factory wired I'm not sure why maybe some type of liability issue. As for the gen. go for the honda 2000!!

Would LOVE the Honda 2000 but I don't know if I can afford it. You can buy a generator at Northern Tool for $250 - So I could buy almost 4 of those generators for the price of a Honda....

yeah but how much more gas are you going to go though the honda runs all night on a gallon. So of those cheap ones are loud and only get 3-6 hours per gallon.

call Beisswenger's in New Brighton. They advertise on a different minnesota fishing site and they have had some very fair deals.

Find a ad from anywhere and bring it to Gander Mountain. They'll match it and if you take the credit card out you get the ten percent discount plus with a little more purchases on the card you'll get a twenty five dollar voucher for in store purchases. I know this because we did this about a year ago. Get the Honda 2000 it is really quiet and is very fuel efficent. I got my ad in the Outdoor News!

      Must be good, got the binoculars out and there are holes drilled out in the middle of Partridge River where they were ice fishing. Neighbor said they accessed the lake from his road. Didn't get a fishing report from them.

      Well I have been stuck inside with covid and just keeping to myself. I hope to get out in the woods or fields soon. Stay healthy everyone.

      near McKinley park and got starlink to test as an alternative to frontier - not mounted properly (rooftop mount was back ordered) so obstructions are an issue. When it works it flies (had some speed tests >160mbps, but does drop for 20 seconds at a time. As chucker stated, it’s perfect for multiple streaming TV that can download/buffer ahead and for all normal internet uses but not great for video calls.

      good for you!!

      Cools down Sunday afternoon and the wind dies down at the same time so Head-OLakes Bay should freeze over Sunday night, 11/30.  A couple of cool days after that so next weekend may be possible for fishing (on foot).  I may wait until the following Monday 12/6 to go up.

      Yea noticed that to. Since heading north to Itasca county since 1965, we notice the same with the weather and snow. Seems  brainerd is a line, then north of deer river.

      I've had enough drama/frustration over buying a used Skandic. lol Called all over Minnesota yesterday looking for a new one. One of the dealers I called last week, had 8-9 of them, today none. I happened to find one new Skandic SWT, and bought it. Delivery sometime in December. If anybody else is on the fence about a Skandic, you better buy it, there aren't anymore. LOL

      The transition seems to be around Brainerd the past few years that I’ve noticed.  Anything south seems to take a while to lock up good then goes bad earlier. Probably has been that way a long time but I’ve only been in the area about 5 winters now and normally didn’t come this direction to ice fish before then.

      I would bet that the ice in front of your place is at least 6 inches thick. I think that this will be a good ice year in our bay, but will have to wait it out to see what the future holds for the rest of the lake!   I expect that you'll drill a hole or two to get some fishing in this weekend....
