With the trailer down the side of the house, it now sticks out over the grass, no big deal there, except now the sprinklers are going to hit it. I mean hit it every morning at 4a.m. Do you think this will harm it? They only hit the rear door and the street side below the rear window. They don't hit the glass. So I don't have to worry about water spots on the windows, but what about hard water spots on the side or rust? I guess it would not be any different then rain, but with minerals. Has anyone ever had to deal with this problem before?

I don't think it would be good Rod. Sprinkler water every day is gonna leave a mark. Can you turn them down?

I just was outside (drooling) and turned the ones that hit it off or pointed them away from it. Why chance it. I can just use a garden hose to water around the trailer.

Yep, it will stain over time. You will have a hard water film that you won't be able to get rid of.

No rod, watering your trailer will NOT turn it into a SLC 3905!!

I was wondering about that drooling bit. Thought maybe Deb was inside.

How's that hinge working, no sqeakie.

Hi Sandjunkie

Don't know if anyone has welcomed you or not but WELCOME! Always glad to get some fresh blood here. Just kidding, always nice to have another view point. Glad to have you aboard.

Rod:

The only water you want on that rig is the water to wash it...everyone's pretty right on here, unless you're watering your lawn and flower beds with a water softener in the line!!

Sean, yeah, I decieded to do some sprinkler reconfiguring this morning. The parts or the grass I miss I'll just get with the hose. Small price to pay.
