Good to see you still have your sense of humour Dean.

One has to have a sense of humor or else one would take it all too seriously!

Hi, Oh the memories; When I first went to work at a Chevrolet dealer, old man Lloyd told me that if a Chevy engine wasn't leaking oil, there wasn't any oil in it!

That's like saying if a British car has a short and is arcing.....at least you have juice in the battery.

I haven't had any leaks through the skin or seams but get surprised by the unexpected. Like a trip where mud dobbers plugged up the drain tubes for the roof AC units. We went to bed and found our mattress and bedding soaked.

I found some water stains on the new rear shelf I built. The seal on the rear window had shrunk and pulled out of the corners.

The seal in the Winegard antenna mast that had been beaten to death leaked with the antenna extended...

Harleys haven't leaked oil since the evolution motor in 1981. You are thinking about the AMG years. The Evo motor just had the 2 halves of the crank case machined more precisely so they fit together better and that stopped the bad rep causing oil leaks. My 2006 has never leaked a drop of oil.

Airstreams don't leak....

That's why I bought a molded fiberglass Oliver.

Even an Oliver has sewer vents and a TV antenna and an a/c unit and windows and doors-
But it doesn't have 4,000 rivet hiles and 400 seams...
