Otter Lodge T600 assembly problem


Recommended Posts

I finished putting together my new Otter Lodge and the floor bar that should be sitting on the ice is about 3 to 4 inches from the ground. The bottom of the skirt is where the bar should be. All the poles and everything is put together the way they should be. I am going to let the house sit and let the canvas stretch for a couple days hopefully that will help. Any other suggestions would be great thanks!!!!!!

My Lodge was the same way. This is not normal. I found that the instructions are wrong in the paperwork that is sent with the cover. Go back to the materials list and you will see the difference in the terms used for the frames, versus the written instructions. One or two of the arms are installed incorrectly. It has been a year since I assembled mine, and I cannot remember which one I had to change. Hope this helps.

Yes, last year there was a mistake in the assy instructions. However, I'm pretty sure that has since been fixed.

I would check that out first to make sure it is assembled correctly.

Here is a link to what I discovered last year


I will add though, that even after assembling correctly I too encountered issues with the skirt not seating well and a super tight canvas. On level ground it barely touched. I emailed Otter and never received a response (still haven't over a year later). I was told by others that it would stretch but it never did. I was not the only one to have this issue.

With enough snow to bank, it really wasn't an issue, but years like this I'm sure its a real PITA.
