You can still dump by cutting a hole in the coroplast near the hole you saw. Maybe 8 inches square. Cut it with the hinged part forward so it flops down. You can see the interior rod and grab it...

I guess our opinions differ. For me, scenic roads include mountain tops with some snow. I don't think staring at a forest for miles to be all that interesting. I plugged along on 421 but guess I...

I use blue dawn to clean the roof. Be careful to not use any other types of dawn, as some of them are scented and attract birds and other things.

I believe the windows are installed with some sort of black calk strips or such and then the windows are tightened on, squeezing out the 'gunk'. As the rig ages, the black stuff sort of oozes out...

I try to drive 62 mph. However when the limit is only 65, I will go up to 65 to be courteous to those that drive the limit. When the limit goes up to 70 or more, I drop back to 62mph.

I80 is good thru to near Chicago. Somewhere after that it becomes a toll road, I think. You can kind of veer off onto another interstate for a while (or maybe a state 4 lane) and avoid tolls. I...
