Preparing For Summer

Getting Your Wheelhouse Ready For Summer Use


Whether you are parking your wheelhouse for an extended period of time now that ice fishing season is over, or you plan to use your wheelhouse for hunting, camping, or traveling during the warmer months, there are a few wheel house maintenance things you as an owner should do to prepare your house for the upcoming change in seasons.

Below is a list of key points to prepare your wheelhouse and links to the other Owner Guide posts, that will walk you through some of these steps in greater detail.

Steps to prepare your wheelhouse for warmer months: 

  • Grease and lubricate the house’s winch system and gears
  • Grease your house’s bearings
  • Check to ensure there are no window drains plugged
  • Check the house’s silicone and seals for any cracks or gaps
  • Flush your Yetti’s water lines
    • If you Winterized Your Yetti Water Lines this a good time to flush out your water lines.  Flush out all of your water lines in your house to ensures you have water running through the pipes to the sinks, shower, toilet, and outdoor shower too if you have one.
  • Review how to operate the hot water heater, water pump, and air conditioner and ensure they are all working
  • Check tire condition and pressures
