They carry it like that because it it to wide to go down the road flat. This way they don't need a permit. Sweet pic.

And as Annie always says... the things ya see.

The other day there were several race teams headed west on 74 out of Peoria, Il. Labor day is coming up and drivers are on the move. That's one of the things I watch for as we travel. I'm surprised at how many travel the race circuit at all levels. We've seen race planes, boats, cars, cycles all rolling along to the next race.
I saw several solar cars all running in line with blinker escorts I believe it was this group... http://www.blackhillsfox.com/content...389401732.html, and they took this route... https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...y045M-sDK73-XE They went just 7/10ths of a mile from our house! I was sitting at a stop sign waiting for them to all get by!

New York and Canada would have their own Grand Canyon.

If you can take the inside cover down, like when changing the filter, look up into the plenum and see if you can see light coming through. Many times i hot weather condensation can form inside and it is typically caused by an opening where the insulation tape came apart. If you see daylight you can purchase some aluminum AC duct tape at any hardware store and re-tape it.

Otherwise as has been stated, time to clean the drains. Wish Dwayne was nearby.

Sorry about the sideways pic. (Wayne, the new phone is just like the old one!)
So you can really blame the phone drinking wine, uh huh!

Every once in a while we get one of those sideways pictures. I preview before posting and if it is sideways I remove it from the post, open it up in my "Preview" (MAC) program and just save it and it straightens it out.

Or, you can stand on your head. Or, turn the camera catywampus.

Mel,
Another thing to check when you take the inside cover down are the bolts under the plenum cover could be loose. If you can turn them with your fingers they need to be tightened. When tightening you do not want to compress the gasket more than 50% or a little more. The gaskets not only keep outside water from coming in but act as vibration dampening when rolling down the road.

Must be a Dwayne twin somewhere iin that campground. (Oops, no one could replace the magician Dwayne.)

But I hate the thought of having to unhook and drive back to General. (Not to mention their $199 per hour service rate.) I'll ask the campground managers if they know anyone locally that could look at it.
Mel, I can't kneel or crawl on my new knees so I walk on the roof or do a butt scoot/crab walk. Sena likes to steal "treasures" and take them on top to dismantle or consume them. And there's always a discarded diaper or 2 up there. I have to do a roofie trip at least weekly.
