Good day! Best-use instructions for your Sunchill are spelled out below. I have also made a 7-minute unboxing video if you prefer to watch that on YouTube.
Unpacking and Inflating
- The simplest part! Just open the bag, pull out the Sunchill and attach your pump.
- To assemble the pump, screw on the handles and the base and screw the hose onto the INFLATE side of the pump.
- Connect the pump nozzle to the Sunchill and make sure the pin in the valve of the Sunchill is out, meaning not pushed in. Recommended PSI is 6.
- There is a D-ring next to the valve that you can use to tie off the Sunchill to your dock or boat and enjoy. This D-ring is NOT designed for towing.
- To deflate, open the valve and push the pin in, the pin will stay in and the air will rush out. The initial burst of air will release a lot of air, the rest can be rolled out when you fold up the Sunchill. While not required, you can also use your pump to deflate the Sunchill. Screw the pump hose into the side of the pump that says DEFLATE. You can then pump all the air out of the Sunchill for the smallest package possible.
- To roll back up, pick any side of the ring and roll it like a burrito, then go to one end and roll it like a tube of toothpaste. If that doesn't make perfect sense, here is a quick video link demonstrating the best way to roll it up. Put the Sunchill strap back on it and you'll end up with the same compact nugget that you started with. It will take a few times to perfect, but it is easy and quick once you get the hang of it. Stuff it back in the bag and you're good to go.
- In the bag you will find two Sunchill drink holders, each with a separate velcro patch. Each drink holder is designed to fit a normal 12oz can with a koozie on it. I have not preinstalled them because some customers don't use them, and some want to attach them where they please.
- Once you confirm where you want the drink holders placed, you can make your choice permanent by gluing the velcro patch to the Sunchill using the tube of vinyl glue I have included. It dries in about ten minutes.
- Your Sunchill is a maintenance free product. There is no requirement to hose it off or wipe it down after use. That said, you may find that you prefer to give it a rinse every once in a while and let it air dry vs always stuffing it back in the bag while wet. Both ways are fine, it's totally up to the user what condition they want to keep their Sunchill.
Jellynet (optional purchase)
- The optional Jellynet is designed to keep jellyfish out of your Sunchill. The top of the net cinches around the top edge of the Sunchill and is kept tight by a Cam Jam. It is easiest to attach by flipping the Sunchill upside down and sliding the net around the edges, then cinching the top line tight with the Cam Jam.
- I have made a quick video demonstration the best way to attach it. You can watch it on YouTube.
