Guess that was all that was holding it on

Funny thing happened on the way to the forum.....

We recently washed the outside of the trailer, scrubbed and washed, washed and scrubbed. The Astrodome on the wally hatch had allot of mildew on it, so I was scrubbing hard to get it off. The inside was painted shut, we never was able to open it. The lifters were frozen shut, one of the twisted out of the bracket when I tried to force it.

We got to our Good Sam chapter outing in Skowhegan last night and started to setup the trailer. When we opened the door and looked up, lo and behold, the astrodome was gone, completely blown away. You can imagine out surprise!!

Ordering a replacement from vintagetrailersupply.com.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

I take it that you are saying that it was being held on by mildew.
