Thermal X zipper freezing?

6 posts in this topic

Tried out the nex Thermal X for the first time last weekend and was happy. The only problem is that the zipper would freeze making it difficult and sometimes impossible to open/close. This never happened on my old otter. I am thinking this is because of the condensation on the inside of the shack and that it was really cold on Lake of the Woods. It does stay warmer than my old otter, which I think is the cause for the increased condensation?? Is there anything I can use/do to prevent this from happening?

Thanks, Matt

You can try applying parafin wax to the zipper. I have the same problem when it gets real cold.

Try rubbing a bar of Ivory soap on the teeth.

You'll find paraffin wax next to the canning jars and lids.

Or use a candle. Those long skinny candles that burn down to stubs are perfect.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
