House Manufacturer shortcuts


Ronsay

Question

I purchased my 16' house at the end of last years fishing season. I have used the house 4 times since it was new and have found problems each time.

After the first trip I had the furnace replaced with an 18.000 btu, at the same time they redid the insulation as it was not installed properly, and also house wrapped it. They did all this for $150.

After trip number 2 I had to put venting in the furnace, and stove cabinet as the furnace was not getting enough air from outside for the blower to operate properly.

Trip number 3 my Daughter stated that there was moisture in the storage areas under the dinette seats, I installed 2 vents in each storage area.

Trip number 4 saw the edge of my dinette table colapse when 2 of my Grandsons jumped into bed for the night, upon further inspection the only part of the table that was being used to support the wieght was about a 5/8" piece of wood molding on each end that was held in by only a few staples. I contersunk screws with wood glue underneath for the moldings, and extended the base for the table to lay on by over an inch on each side.

This is the first house I have owned so I was inexperienced at what to look for in the construction end. I did get a good buy so I have repaired all the minor items myself.

I would recommend that anyone looking at houses to check for proper venting in closed off areas, and that the dinette converts to a bed properly, with sufficient overhang on each end of the table where it lays on the base.

Some other things that I added were side boards on the top bunk, and a rope ladder with tightners on it for adjusting, and snaps to unhook it. Works great for the Grandkids.

Cant wait till my next trip.

Hi Rick,

I checked out the site and I must say the pictures of the Road King Premier put my house to shame.

I purchased mine at a end of the season close out price in the cities and got it for about half of what the Road King sells for.

It's very comfortable to fish out of, I just need to iron out the bugs in it. Theres great circulation now, after I put the extra venting in, I think the vents were less than $3.00 ea, so it's not costing me alot of money to remedy the problems.

The dinette reminds me of the old pickup camper style tables that made into a bed with the 4 cushions laid on top of the table, I think I have that problem solved.

The manufacturer I purchased from produced over 600 houses last season and at one point fell way behind the orders, they were confined in the facilities they had and could not expand. I believe they made shortcuts and mistakes in trying to push out the houses they were behind in, they did stand behind the insulation and the furnace replacement and house wrapped it for $150.00. This year they moved to a bigger facility.

Tomorrow I am taking it on another trip and am hoping that the bugs are ironed out.

If I ever sell mine I will definately take a look at the Road King.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend
