Storage checklist

Prior to parking your Ice Castle for summer storage or prepping for summer camping it is a good idea to go over your house.

Check out your cables, if they show any sign of rust or fraying, head off an emergency situation and replace them. These are available on our website accessories.

Grease all pivot points that are equipped with certs. Spray lubricant on any other points that move.

Car wash or pressure wash to clean off salt and grime, give a good coat of wax to the complete exterior. We like Ice Synthetic wax by Turtle Wax. It is easy to use and leaves a lasting coat. This is available in our accessories.

Wash down interior walls around each hole to remove any unseen "fish slime" or odor.

Clean out food storage areas and fridge if equipped with one.

Clean or shampoo carpets.

Wash down complete area around cooktop and counters.

Much of this seems obvious but I find a short checklist helps avoid forgetting.

Feel free to add any suggestions that you have found helpful.
