Summer storage of wheeled Ice house?

3 posts in this topic

I finally pulled my house out of the drive way and into the back yard. A couple of questions...

Is it better to leave the house on the wheels? Drop it down to the ground? Or put it on blocks?

Any other tips on summer storage?

Thanks in advance.

Put it on blocks. If you have covers for the holes, put them on.

Peek inside it from time to time to make sure the mice don't invade. Stick in an air freshener or next winter you will ask yourself,"What's that smell!??!??!"

Definitely put it up on blocks. Additionally spray the whole tires (sidewalls and tread) with a silicone spray or silicone based rubber/vinyl/leather treatment. This will help prevent rubber dry rot and UV deterioration of the rubber, and help them last years longer.

When the weather is nice, check your wheel bearings. If you have some type of full pack system with a grease fitting on the spindle and have kept it greased regularly, perhaps the only inspection is shake the wheel to make sure the bearing setting is reasonable. If it is loose at all you are due for a complete bearing inspection this summer at your convenience to make sure it is ready to go in the fall.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
