Weuse a couple of times each year around Thanksgiving and Christmasthe 33sk Kingston and the weather can get very cold. If I need to get into the storage doors or get into where the propane is, I have found the door frozen to the seal. What can be put on the seal to prevent the freezing?

Best to make sure it is dry and then put a light coat of WD-40 on it.

Chris, I will give that a try but for some reason moisture will form on the ledge and freeze. I do not know if it would be possible to add drain places or drain holes?

When it's fairly warm out, (if we get one of those again). Make sure the seals are clean and dry. Then put a good application of silicone on them.

The top of the door or the bottom? Water collecting in either place is not common.

We winter camp here in Iowa and have done every month of the year. Before it gets freezing I use silicon on the rubbers and the door where they seal and have not had any trouble hope this helps.

Some use, and swear by 303---I use just plain silicone spray which can be purchased just about any place---Walmart--auto parts store---Hardware store.

Old Farmer, thanks.



Chrisnan23,moisture can form around the storage doors most any place as the doors have some clearance around the outside.
