Does anyone have a solution to your fish house doors freezing? Itís solid ice around the frame and the door knob will freeze up also.

keep a small torch in the house to thaw frozen door latch from the inside.

Lock de-ice and or a small torch, and wipe your door seals down with silicone spray. Keeping a window cracked may help a bit as well.

I use lock de-ice with graphite and a torch also on my RV style door handles that have zero insulation around handle. Melted myself and seen doors melted before. Definitely have to watch it really close. I have a picture of my spray but how can I add it ?

Yes, a fan will work. We use a tornado one (around 7" diameter) that is bigger and point it at the door from the heater port and it works wonders you just have to warm up the door framing.

BTW--look for leaks if you have them and make sure to take care of them--use foam tape or putty rope to help with them and don't lock the door until you leave.
