Ice Castle Help


bigbluepirahna

Question

bigbluepirahna

Looking for help with Ice Castle Fish House.  Bought a 2015 special this year, and wondering if its working as it should.  12v system is running off my boat interstate deep cycle.  Even with the generator running, I'm only getting a weekend out of the battery.  I hooked up a battery status indicator, and it says battery is "charging" as long as furnace isnt running.  The battery must have gotten too low the other day because the furnace quit heating.  Fan would run for 30 seconds, but it wouldnt light and then would shut off.  After I unhooked the battery, then it all started working again because must have been running off the generator.  

 

So...my question is...do you guys get a faster charge rate than what I'm seeing or is all this just the way it's supposed to be...or do I have issues?.  Thanks.

I am not sure your charger is working. Or it is set to a trickle charge that cant keep up with your draw.

One of the most important things everybody should have is a voltage meter with all the battery's a person has. Its only takes a minute to see if the chargers working or the battery went bad it does happen.

      What does everyone use to protect the carpeting when you haul an ATV in your ice house? I thinking when you leave the lake the house will still be warm and all the snow and ice and mud build up will melt and then refreeze and have a mess.

      Anyone been out for a drive? Did about a 100 mile loop today and things are looking better few lakes that were rolling last week we’re caped this morning. Hope to find someplace to fish next weekend. Got myself in to much of a rut going to work and sitting around every weekend.

      The middle of Niles bay finally froze over last night.  4” of ice just off of shore which has been frozen for awhile.

      WebCams looks like ice over (today?)... there was a FB posting someone in an airplane on 11.28.20 posting pictures of the open water.  on the Lake Vermilion FB group.  We need that guy to do daily posts... flights... ;)

      Always a good reminder that the chart below assumes that the ice is the same thickness everywhere. As we all know, it is thinner and thicker in spots.   Thanks for the spudbar update jim curlee  
    • smurfy
      yea i dont really understand the rational for changing it from dec 1 to nov 15 either.........whats the rush. i dont remeber any year since they changed the date that there was safe enough ice..........could be wrong though. i remember more years when it was dec 1 with plenty of iffy ice and that was going to itasca county lakes!!!!!!
    • jim curlee
      I guess I should read the regs once in awhile. I had no clue they changed the spearing opener, it was December 1st for as long as I can remember. Doesn't matter this year, still isn't enough ice to get out. It was around 16 last night so we probably made ice, but I'm going to need a few more days of single digits before I get out. Were booked for tomorrow, not sure yet if it's going to happen or not. Jim

      I went a day last week for the first time this season and folded up two roosters in about an hour and a half.

      Hunting pheasants, ruffed grouse, squirrels or rabbits offers opportunities to enjoy the Minnesota outdoors as temperatures fall and snow blankets the landscape. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Was up this weekend, checked ice off North sides of Moccasin point and Breezy point. Both had 3-3.5" near shore but quickly dropped to 2-2.5" before you got 100' feet out. Not enough for me so retreated back to shore
