I'm to tired to think. I will just wait for the grand announcement!! Hope all is going well for you and the rebuild! Ours is coming along. I will get some pictures as I goofed and forgot the camera! You can beat me up later when we meet! Got a sock full of roof nails to beat me with???? I'm glad I did let them do the work as they found some damage to the walls on the curb side and at the rear area. My metal sides are made of panels that are the length of the side and about 14" high! They are taking off that first 14" piece and see what they have to do from there to make it strong!! They said they are going to reinforce that wall so it can support the awning they are going to install!
Will check in later to see how you are coming along. Later, Capt.Dan

We just believe older is better. I keep telling myself that and hope it will work on me too.

Glad to have you here. You can go to the mp profile area under your account and post a signature file which can list your RV.

And the coming week is supposed to be every bit as bad!

With the "breeze" we've been getting here (sometimes) it's like being in a convection oven.
