So are these things impossible to design well, or do I keep buying cheap coaches that don't afford one the luxury of NOT having a pool of water on the slide each time it rains?
A guy would think that there is some way to design this so that I didn't have to climb up 12 feet and stuff 4- $2 beach balls underneath just so it won't pool. PVC frame? Yea - every two weeks I need to add and remove a cheesy plastic monstrosity?
What is so difficult in the world of slide topper engineering that does not allow them to somehow figure that, in the off-chance we might use their product outside, and there is also a slight chance there may be moisture periodically, that they couldn't put their engineering brains together during the Slide-Out Topper World Conference and come up with a design that didn't need a multi-colored beach ball to make it function properly?
Whew. I feel a little better.
Maybe I need to just buy more expensive coaches? Maybe there is a price point gap that I need to jump to get toppers that don't pool. Dunno. But before I do that, I first have to go out and buy some beach balls, blow them up slightly, attach a string to them (so I can pull them out later), climb up on my roof, and shove them under the topper with my awning stick so I don't have a mesquito-infested pool on my roof.
end of rant.
