Otter Outdoors service

10 posts in this topic

Yesterday, after butchering deer and cleaning up, I was just kind of messing around in the garage. I looked at my new Otter Cabin II sitting there and thought to myself, I would like a couple of additional parts for this.

I called Otter Outdoors yesterday afternoon, Veterans day, in the afternoon and ordered a few things. I fully expected to not see these parts until at least Saturday at the earliest. I just got home from work and there they are. Holy Wow, one day, not even a full day, and I made the order on a holiday.

In my opinion, Otter makes the best, most durable portable out there, and I've used a lot of different portables. Now their customer service gets a big thumbs up too. If you're in the market for a good portable shelter, check them out here.

Ditto from me. For that and many other reasons I will always Fish with a Otter. wink

I've been completly satisfied with my Otter as well! It was the only fish house I have put together that the directions made sense and that alone was enough to make me like them!

I've been satisfied as well. I bought the cheaper wilderness series last year from Otter's team wild. After I opened the package I noticed the window was cracked. Called up and they sent me a brand new one out no questions asked. Got it a few days later and sent the damaged one back free of postage.

I've had the same experience when ordering directly through them. Both times, the order was at my door less than 24 hours after placing it.

gbc, I also have the Team Wild house, is your big logo on the roof on the right way? Mine is upside down if you are standing at the door looking at it, now if you were in an airplane flying from behind to the front it would be perfect....

Not a big deal, just wonder?

riverrat, my house is the wilderness walleye series, not sure if you have the same or if you have the newer wild? My house is all dark green with a smaller logo on the top front that says Wilderness Walleye, which is written so you can read it looking at the front door. Sounds like yours was put on backwards? Doesn't hurt anything though right, just makes yours unique :-)

I ordered the close out Den last year off their site, and unfortunately the travel cover was on back order. They were incredibly helpful, and were great to work with.

Now I am a Clam guy, always have been but I use the big Otters when I have my "Pike Train" cruising across the lake for large groups and Otter has always been great, even when they know I am not the nicest with their product.

For me to call up and tell them "Ya crashed three of your houses together and need some frame tubes" They not only refrain from laughing but have the parts to me asap.

If they only made an ultra light one man.

    • I'm down about 35 pounds (315 to 280) in 2 months. I've been doing the Keto ultra low carb diet with a goal of less than 20 grams a day and it has been working well so far. My goal is 225 so I still have a ways to go. 
    • So, losing pressure when off at night and at low speed fishing. Small leaks like Rebel said sounds about right. If it is running fine when at higher rpm's then the fuel pump, fuel flow and carb are keeping up the pressure needed then. The pressure is slowing leaking out some where which has to be a small leak at the diaphragm, fuel line connectors, or fuel pump seals. Good luck.
    • Parity, lots of parity in this league, that is a good thing but it sure makes it tough to win. Cullen has two cups already including last year so I'd be fine with the Sens or Nashville taking the whole thing. 
    • Pinhole or small tear in diaphragm.
    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
