Notes to self:
[b]1. Duck, entering /leaving trailer
2. Check hubs at every stop
3. load the tools (they do no good sitting by shed door)
4. Do this more often

My scalp got sympathetic pains when I read that because I have bumped it so often; first on the Compact Jr. I used to own, and then on my Fiber Stream.

Robert cut a piece off a pool noodle, made a sleeve out of the curtain fabric to cover it, and slid it over a dowel that we mounted over the door.

Great idea! I'll get right on that

One thing I should have mentioned before; On the trip North to OH, we were stopped at a "Flyen Hook', a county cop went past a few times slow, looking over the rig. Then stopped next to it, went around again on the other side. Well, I was getting nervous, so got out to see what was what. He had his cell out, taking pix of the trailer, was going to try to talk "someone" into going with, if he got one.
I hope it works out for him.

Hi Ron,
Your story very much like mine. So I don't have photos to send. At least we have a clean slate!
