Coating on Inside of Otter Portable

Recommended Posts

Due to wear and tear on my Otter Portable i have quite a few spots on my canvas where the light shines through the shell. The shell is not ripped but it is like the black coating has wore off. Is there a product that a guy can use to touch up these spots?

Yeah that was what i was thinking as well. I just wasn't sure if anyone has had a proven solution. I was sitting it the house in the sun and realized how bad it is getting. Not sure what is causing the lining to come off.

As Leech said most all of them do it. Some worse than others. I would guess it is from the frost buildup in the house and then folding the material when taking portable down. The frozen material has to give somewhere.

Is there a certain way I should be taking the house down to minimize the damage? I have found that the house does sweat pretty bad when there is no wind and the ice does accumulate on the shell. I usually try to be pretty careful to tuck everything in a delicately as I can.

I redid my clam Yukon this summer... Same thing, pinholes, fabric starting to show light. Clam recommended locktite color guard, available in aerosol can or roll on. Home Depot carries it. It took six aerosol cans to do the walls and front door, as I have reflectix on the ceiling and down the back. What a difference.... Much warmer as its now windproof again. Just don't hotbox yourself like I did in the summer heat!

I have been thinking of spraying the inside of my wild lodge with plastidip, i cant believe how rough it looks from the inside its only a year old. You have probably heard of plastidip, its a rubberized spray paint. On hard surfaces it is removable but not so sure on fabric. I painted the wheels on my truck with it and have been in-pressed so far. I also used it on the front of my bibs to water proof them, witch seems to be working good. i get it at men ards its about $6 or $7 a can if i remember correctly.

I could not find it on their HSOforum. If you google it it will come up. I found the distributor for locktite in my area and bought directly from them.

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
