Unhook castle from hitch ?

Recommended Posts

Once your house is set up and you left it hooked to ball hitch. Can you unhook without cranking house all the way back up?

It can be done although it is not designed to be done! I have a 2007 ice castle and last year we had to run in to shore but did not want to crank the entire house up as wife and son were staying back. We just unbolted the tube frame going to trailer hitch and pulled it off. When we got back we just put the bolt back in! I can tell you it wasn't the worse thing in the world to do but not as easy as just unhooking the truck while the house is still up:)

It depends on how high your truck is and if you can get it off without it being bound up. Mine is close but an easy chisel pry pops it off. Why leave it hooked up anyway?

Pull the pin on the receiver hitch and pull forward then put the hitch back in after you have pulled away.

good thinking

I do it all the time. if you have a hydrolic you just crank few times then hit the down button then crank and then hit the botton and it comes right off my truck. and you can do the same thing with a crank did it all the time with my 06 ice castle

Why NOT leave it hooked up?? When I'm done with my evening of fishing it takes me about 5 minutes to crank up and go, no hitching needed. If you're by yourself its a pain to get backed up and hitched up.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
