Flip over door zipper freezing

Recommended Posts

When it's cold, low teens and colder, the condensation on the inside front of my Clam Kenai freezes. I keep my Little Buddy heater behind me in the sled, so the freezing is worst on the inside of the door and the zipper becomes inoperable. Any thoughts on a fix for this? Some sort of lube on the zipper?

I put zipper wax on mine and seems to do the trick. My wife brought my carhart to st cloud upholstery for a zipper repair and gave her a crayon type tube. Thought what the heck, I probably can't hurt anything... I have an old non thermal X2 and it used to freeze also.

Another trick is to spray the zipper with Pam cooking oil. Works great! And what above poster suggested, leaving the zippers in the "UP" position. Hope this helps...

Later,

Ha, I am in the same boat. Think the last one on my Nanook thermal broke last weekend. What do you think you will use to replace them. Not sure why they thought plastic was a good idea. Thanks
