birdie,
Your pictures are to large for the forum. Please re-size them and put them back on.

Thank you,

Full hookups should come with a swimming pool, now you got it all.

That really is what it looked like - the wind was incredible - we all had waterfront property here in Arizona for a few hours!

I guess no one need a water bladder. Did Robbie give swimming lessons?

Next year, you all need to come to the Myrtle Beach Rally instead. The weather was much nicer.

We have had our share of inclement weather.....

We have also had more beautiful weather than just about anyone, especially in the immediate area. Looking out the back window right now, all I see is blue skies, sunshine, and MOC assistant wagonmasters....just doesn't get any better!

One of our windows "leaked". Well actually what was happening was the wind was blowing so hard that it was blowing water into the weep hole. We just stuck a towel in the area and that soaked up all the water. As soon as the wind let up no more "leaking".

Bill and Marianna had some water come down the TV antenna. Other than that I've not heard of any problems. Have not heard from WorkerB as to whether or not he had any leaks from his solar install.

Wow Hamrad, maybe you can invent a miniature awning that can be installed over the weep holes for when that happens. I'm looking forward to seeing these at Camping World under the "What are they gonna think of next?" area. Then wait for the others that complain "why doesn't the manufacturer just install these at the factory?".

We hope to be there next year.

Art and Marge,
Well I have no plans to 'invent' an awning but I like the idea. Hmmmmmm maybe I'll rethink my position. But I suspect I'll just take a few more towels!

Hope you folks can make it next year. Just bring your umbrella.

We had a little water blow in through the bedroom slide and on to the carpet, but not sure exactly where it came in at.

When the wind blows as hard as it did in Q during the storm, it is inevitable a little water will find its way inside. We also had water entering the weep holes on the wind side window.
I ended up taping a baggie to the ceiling to contain the water leaking from the antenna knob during the storm so it would not get the bed wet. Bill got up on the roof and easily fixed the antenna leak by repositioning and caulking the rubber boot that covers the cable entry into the roof.

Hmmm! I would guess that many of the windows on all the different RV's (TT's 5er's, MH's) are pretty much manufactured by only a few companies. On my SOB there were "Weep Hole Covers" and I broke a couple the first time I washed it. Got to rough. So I ordered several of them. They acutally make a left and a right side cover. It snaps into the weep hole. If need be, I could take a picture of one at different angles.

But I do like the fact that HamRad will invent a small awning for the little devils.
