Seats for Portable

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody has tried the econo version by Otter for seats. How do they compair to the cushion version. They look smaller and easier to trasport but are they comfortable?

Do a search on Butt Bridge in the Ice Fishing Forum.

T-Bone came up with a great set of plans that are pretty easy to make with basic wood working tools. It is curved to fit your butt, and takes a lot of strain off your back.

rod bender-

I use the econo version of Otter's seat, actually its Polar Sports seat but they are the same thing. Thorne Bros. had a good deal on them last winter and it fits my Otter den sled perfectly. Anyway, I can sit on it all day no problem. Yeah, the butt gets a little sore but I can't think of a seat you could sit on all day without it getting sore. I debated back and forth for the longest time between the smaller seat and the cushioned seat. I sat on one, then I'd sit on the other, then back to the other one, and so on until I bought the econo version. To me, it just seamed more comfortable and I'm completely happy with it.

I am wondering about ther bench seat for the otter. I am preparing to buy a magnum lodge and from what I have heard, the bracket type seats are fairly cumbersome to lug around, taking up much space. I have also heard the bench seat holds the cover up slightly, not allowing snow to pile up on drooped cover. I have not seen a benck seat on an otter yet, they are quite spendy and I also wonder if it will actually get in the way of loading and unloading gear. Anyone have the lowdown?

    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.
