Canvas treatment for portables?

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone treat the canvas of their portable with anything. I'm just trying to make it last as long as possible. I've been weary of treating it with silicone or waterproofing because I want it to take the humidity out of the thing when I'm in it. Any input would be appreciated.

Theres 2 things I can think of,.....1) thaw your shack and let it dry every once in awhile and in the off season remove the shell and store it in a good try place away from rodents and other material eaters. Just for the record, This is why otter shells stand out from others, they have a very durable shell.

If you store it out of the sun and in a dry place it should last. Lysol controls mildew and wouldn't be a bad idea to use. Maybe in a pine scent? smile.gif Any time a house gets frost build up it should be opened up to dry out.

Dont spray it when you have a heater going, maybe let it air dry for a while too..

This is the first season I treated my ice armor fabric after 3 years I used spray silicone two coats.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
