The first ding is the worst. After that you can relax.

I live in a very safe area (I actually had a full wallet returned) but I always lock my AS doors and lock the hitch as well. Why put any temptations out there if they can be avoided.

A leak from anywhere or my husband rubbing the A/C shroud off on low tree branches AGAIN. Gee, who brought this topic up anyway. Now I think of tornado season coming this spring and the hail and the grass fires this summer

"Lions and tigers and bears....Oh MY!"...(among all of the above) and don't forget 'getting locked out of trailer while alone in the boondocks and your car keys in the trailer at 29 degrees temp in your jammies!

It is irrelevant to this thread!

I may be afraid of a bill, and the good techs cost lots per hour, however generally take fewer hours to do the same job.

Oh, yeah. I forgot to add that they do it right the first time.

.......and because they do it right the first time, we drive hundreds of miles to have our TECH work on our baby. We're thankful that we're able to do this and fortunate to be able to pay for good service after learning the hard way that most often you get what you pay for and sometimes you also get what you deserve! This forum is so full of helpful suggestions on how to get it right the first time. We're happy to have found this site and proudly display our AIR decal. HAPPY TRAILS

Another Thing To Worry About

Doing research for a trip out East. I read that at some places while your out Sea Kayaking they Break into your Truck.
This weekend's Sunday Paper had a story that in parking lot's they are using cordless recip. saw's to Steal Catalytic Converter's from truck's .They get hundred's of dollar's for them.

Hail damage is no fun. After 14 years, my luck ran out, however,somewhere in the forum, I ran across a thread about hail damage that called the dents "marks of distinction or character". Having seen that, it offered some consolation knowing that my AS now has "character".

More than one

I was originally scared of wanting more than one Airstream. I would have dreams of more than one waking in a cold sweat! Now I'm scared that two will not be enought!

Mice and garden snakes in or under the trailer.
My AS lives at a campground that is surrounded by farms. Everyone in the park has mice that pop up every once in a while.
And those ground moles (?) Those underground animals that decide the underneath of my surrounding neighbors' sheds are good places to live.
Husband is instructed to enter shad and trailer first at all times.

maybe wild animals in general is better way to say it.
