  1. Sounds like you have a project and a plan. You are not too far from Rapid Marine in Ham Lake. They have done work for me many times and I'd recommend them to anyone.
  2. Maybe a rotten stump void that has become home to a critter....?
  3. Little nut cracker.
  4. Local salvage yard?
  5. Dark and dried plant leaf tips usually is a symptom of over watering.
  6. Thanks for the input. I will try again, this time with my pliers next to the fill spout or something like that to see if that "activates the magnet.
  7. ....or the softness is due to trapped moisture on the interior rotting out due to poor ventilation in the summer and has nothing to do with the roof. Always a possibility.
  8. I've got a Dowco cover that is over ten years old. I use it all the time when trailering. I have no noticeable damage due to the cover as it ties down nicely and the flapping prone spots have tighteners that take-up the loose canvas material. And i have chains with the ice/hard-snow studs. These increase traction by a lot. I stopped using them since they tear up the sidewalk and driveway when plowing snow. I do not use my wheeler for pulling a house, yet.
  9. Recently I am seeing more, or I just started noticing diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) pumps at truck stops and some convenience stations. I am on my second DuraMax and have been using the bottled DEF. So I tried a DEF pump the other day and it took 15 minutes to get 3 gallons. The lady at the cash register told us that there is a magnet on the pump nozzle, as a safety, that needs a metal fill spout in the truck to activate. So two questions: 1) Is there a magnet in the pump nozzle? 2) How to make this work with my DuraMax with a plastic fill spout? Thanks, Hoey
  10. European vehicles have little or no drink holders because driving there is a serious matter with no allowance for distractions. So if you need coffee or a soda, you stop at an imbiss, purchase, consume, and then get back on the road.
  11. We put in a Therma Tru door with prism-ed glass oval and matching sidelights about 8 years ago. The oval insulated double pain failed, but they replaced it at no charge. Really no issues since. From time-to-time the door with creak (that's noise) during temperature changes. Again, overall it is a nice door. We do have very tall interior ceilings and a window above the door - if I were to do it again, i'd consider eliminating the overhead window and put in a 10 foot door. We needed to and a header above the door in this case to maintain warranty as Therma Tru would not allow the door to bear overhead weight.
  12. Maybe call Verizon or stop by one of their shops, not a reseller?
  13. This pdf provides good description of why, what, etc... of metal contact with treated lumber and fasteners.
  14. A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago. Fattie too.
  15. I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end. I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
