Frabill Trekker Question

Recommended Posts

Alright Frabille guys, I have a question for you. I just purchased a used Frabill Trekker and can't seem to figure out where the 4 extra poles go. I take it they are used to pull the canvas tight, but can't find the right location for them. Trekker guys let me know.

Not sure on Frabill, but on the houses I've used they run along the roof from pole to pole for support and two go from the bottom to the top poles in the front to hold it tight.

That is correct N2TF, you can put them where you want them to cut down wind flap.

Correct...and just so you know and it is a common question on the Trekker Series..if all poles must be in place for a proper fit on the rear support pole.

Try it without the front poles and then with them in place, and you will see.

I recommend when installing the tarp you have the poles in place before you set the weather/storm seal permanently to the tub with the screws and gasket provided. That will insure a proper fit latter on in the cold. (Keep in mind a tighter fit will be the result in winter than in summer, as the tarp contracts in the cold.)

In general just enough overlap tucked under the lip of the tub to fill the gasket is all that is needed, too much will cause the front support frame to lift or the rear upright tension pole to be too tight in the cold when the tarp is contracted from the cold.

Makes sense, thanks guys. I opted for some ice fishing gear instead of buying a boat this summer. It's the wrong time of year to have the ice fishing itch....

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
