Cold weekend

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Six of us are heading to stay in a sleeper out of Zippel. Given the forcasted wind chill into the 40s below, any tips for my truck and making sure it will start in the morning?

To anyone else who will be out there this weekend - Stay Warm!!!!

A pan of charcoal under the oil pan in the morning.

Well you light it on fire, and it warms your oil.

Use common sense so you don't burn your truck up.

Another tip for when it's brutally cold out is to bring your battery in, and keep it warm.

Or you can always start it through the night every few hours.

When it's going to be this cold, I don't know if it matters, but I always park with the front of the truck away from the wind. Good Luck, the people at Zipple are great, and I bet that they will check on you.

Hey fisherman50 I'll be up in Zipple on Sunday and Monday night also out of a sleeper. My dad and 2 boys will be with me. My dad has one of those portable chargers that work real slick to jump start a vehicle if the battery dies. I would imagine that the resort could help you out too. I think they check on you in the am and pm so maybe you could get a jump from one of the bombadears if need be? Good luck! Maybe one of us will end up pulling the other off of the ice? smile.gif
