In addition, if something fails, you may have recourse with the company if you followed their directions and it didn't work as indicated. JMHO.

Advise provided is directly from the manufactures instructions.

Whoops! I think I must have missed something. I meant my remark as a general statement regarding some sales associates at the local "box" store. Some, not all, salespeople may not know a product well and give incorrect information. I'm so sorry if I offended. Not my intention.

Where do you live that you get so much rain? Pulling the side moulding sounds like tricky business. I guess I'm speaking more about putting it back on. There is always something to do "in the meantime", isn't there? Right now I am at a cg and brought my ladder just in case I felt like doing some waxing!

I live in Michgan, if it aint raining the trees are raining seeds on the roof, I aint winning in that department, LOL, really just a waiting game as far as the weather and the trees dropping seeds dont really have anywhere to take it to seal it, thinking maybe the roof isnt that waveing maybe just can seal it and it will protect us, so much else to do, still working on trying to get the floor replaced, and trying to get the little bit of celing that is left in it scraped out for new celing, now that its dry its harder to get out, mostly where the cross beams are but there are metal ones going across so thats good, just gotta keep picking away at it, lots of people here in Michigan are fixing up their trailers to live in, losing their jobs and homes left and right, so I am to, the trailer means not giving up my 5 cats, that I could never do, we'll die together first before I let happen, the worst of all of this is hubby wont even offer to help with anything, I am not very good at all this repair stuff so It wont be as good as a carpenter but I am trying to do the best I can, trailer just has to protect me and the furkids from the elements, hubby has plenty family to go to, me and the furkids do not have any family, well a brother but he cant help with anythihg, benn disabled for years now so its just me and the furkids and we will be fine in it somehow

Hey, Chris. You have a lot on your plate, for sure. What are your plans when you are finished with the TT? Not that we are ever really finished! Will you travel? or find a more permanent spot? What about a job? Any prospects out there for you? It is unfortunate that you don't have any help on this, but I know you can do it and just hang in there, ok?
