Cargo Ramp Door

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone out there with a ramp door on there fishhouse, or on a regular trailer know what is going on at the bottom of my ramp door. It looks like rust, but I took a magnet to it, and it appears to be all aluminum. It must be some kind of corrosion? It has come on pretty fast, I noticed it starting last fall. It’s a 2014 Yetti, but I don’t think they make the ramp door, I think they purchase it.

I had corrosion similar to what you have by the hinge on an aluminum boat once. It was caused by electrolysis from a frayed ground wire. The corrosion was near a couple rivets and one stainless screw.       The other spot near the "Fish House" doesn't seem to be near a fastener so I'm baffled by that one.

There doesn’t appear to be any wires in the door. I’m going to try and find an illustration of  how this thing is put together. Hopefully that may give me a clue to what is going on.

thanks guys for the reply’s.

There doesn't have to be wires in the door. A short-(grounded) wire any where in the trailer or frame can cause that. Not sure how easy it is to get into the ramp door to see if its getting water in spots?  It may be leaking down from the top seal when it rains?

Well if that’s the case, I better look the whole house over. It could be happening elsewhere and I may have not noticed it.

Mike, I think I will send the photos to Yetti and see what they say.

Electrolysis Is the same concept in a aluminum boat and why all grounds are to a buzz bar and not grounded to the hull.

In your case it could be moister in the door making current path.  But, I could be all wet!  😁

Since paint doesn't like to adhere to Aluminum, perhaps it is merely a case of poor prep and priming of the aluminum surface.    A small particle of something ferrous that was stuck to  the aluminum would do it too.

Thanks for the offer Mike, I’ll see how the communications go. I’ve had go results in the past contacting Yetti.

    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
    • Del is correct 3ea 12v batteries in series are required to get 36v. 2 in series to get 24v and each battery 12v. You can connect a + and - wire to each individual battery, while wired in series, and run 3 separate 12v isolated devices. A + and - to either of 2 in series gives you 24v.   You NEED a "3 bank marine charger" which has 3+ and 3- charging wires which charges the 3 batteries independent of each battery. When one battery reaches full charge, that bank shuts off other 2 banks continue to charge until respective batteries are fully charged. Batteries will not overcharge.    You can run both 36v and 24v motors on a 3 in series batteries but DON'T run both at the same time. Current draw on the 2 24v batteries will greatly reduce battery life and under serve current on the 36v motor.   Best solution is separate battery banks and chargers for each motor and a separate 12v for starting motor and running 12v electronics.    Suggestion, carry a set of jumper cables long enough to reach from the battery bank to your primary motor battery. If your starter battery dies 5 miles off shore, just jumper to any one of the trolling motor batteries to start your engine.
    • Well that game went about as expected. Was worse for me, because my directv went out, so I had to listen to the game. Couple plays I wish they would have done differently...go for the touchdown at the end of the first half, instead of field goal. And when it was 4th down midway through the 4th quarter, they should have kicked the field goal instead of going for it. Was fun having a top ten ranking while it lasted. That loss guaranteed gameday won’t be here for Wisconsin game.
    • You definitely want a salt shield as it will keep SOME slush gravel  etc off of the sleds but plenty still comes over so you want to have a quality cover on your sled to
    • I have wondered what happens to those mallards that the kids feed bread to all summer on Vermilion when duck season starts...  Summer... walk out on the dock and here they come....  Fall ????
    • All the corn I have starts with an A.  And I have plenty of them.  A couple houses hung too.  Spose I should put the Free Food and Lodging sign And get some more takers. 🌰🦆👨‍🍳
    • You know if you feed them corn all summer, they are extra tasty and easy to shoot in the fall...😀
