CYA is the name of the game.
Will certainly do as you suggest. I have made the acquaintance of a well thought of RV repair service in the area. I have already asked them about having them do an inspection of any trailer I might find.
I have a trusted auto mechanic of long standing who can help me with other suggestions regarding the truck. We know someone in the Ford organization who can help us with the Oasis report. I have not heard of that before you mentioned it. Thank you so much!
