New Wheel House - A Few Questions


Recommended Posts

I picked up a new wheel house yesterday. 6.5 x 12 built by the fish house store. I have a few questions:

1)The axle has grease fittings on the pivot points. Should I be using a certain type of grease?

2)When loading the house is it best to evenly distribute the weight or put it more towards the front or back? Trying to get it to tow better. Seems to take the bumps harsh.

3)It has a Vented Empire heater. Do they need a regulator on the hose at the tank? In the manual it says there is one built into the heater. When I lit it today it seemed there was too much pressure and wouldnt stay lit.

Thank you!

Any grease will work but they do make a lighter grease that's easier to pump in the winter. Any auto parts store should have it. I have a 6.5 by 16.... Pulls best when I have more tounge weight. It's balanced almost perfect before I start adding my stuff in it. I am pretty sure there should be a regulator up by the tanks. My vented empire does. Hope this helps

Thank guys. Is there a special regulator I should get? Could I use a mr heater one they have at fleet farm? In the Empire manual they state a minimum of 11.0" w.c. for the gas input. The mr heater regulator is rated at 11.0" w.c.

Do you guys have something to cover the vent with while transporting on the roads? Do they make something for that? I cant find anything.
