Barry, if you really want some nuts to check, come to Florida. We've got plenty of 'em.

Ok, so now I have to add some nuts to my awning so I can check them. I would hate to be considered nut-less after all and the talk of the campground.

As for the Alto, well, that time I slipped on the fence as a kid comes to mind....no wonder I was such a successful choir boy without even realizing it.

I am thinking awnings on all my windows. Vintage look. Yes, with nuts if necessary. Anyone have any suggestions on what would suit a 1951 Flying Cloud, be easy to set up and take down, and have the "vintage look".

Barry

These came with our 62 when we bought it. Don't know if they are of an original style or not. FYI

Thank you George. They look pretty neat. And, I'd have nuts to check.

Gosh Barry,

Wouldn’t it be simpler just to put a nut in each pocket? Then you could check your nuts by putting your hands in your pocket.

The awnings do look good on the 62. Let us know what you decide.

Check bolts also!

The bolt on the travel latch came loose on the new trailer's Zip Dee. Took it out, added blue Locktite and reattached.

Wink No kidding - check your nuts ! !

I read the tip about checking your nuts to Ike when it was first posted........
you know how that goes.
You don't pay attention to those all important nuts until there's a problem.

While at a gathering of Rivettes and families last weekend I saw one of the awning bolts for the top arm was coming out. Yup, lost a nut.

Told Tin Sista's hubby Dave to check his nuts - yup, he found a loose one. A great guy, he gave us one of his spare nuts.

thecatsandi (michelle) was right - CHECK YOUR NUTS !!

Well, I just can't let this go by without posting a note that I, too, plan to routinely check my nuts before a trip from now on so they don't end up hitting the road while we are en route. Not a pretty sight.

Yee-Ha!

Last night I just happened to be opening this thread when Donna leaned over my shoulder to set down a cup of tea. I almost ended up wearing it as she read the title and started laughing.

She went back to her television show with a big grin and I'm sure I'll be taking some ribbing for that one for a while.

Thanks Michelle. It's not often anything I do on the computer can get her giggling.

Buried in the nearly half million posts on this forum is a previous thread on Zip-Dee maintenance and loose bolts, extending from 2003 to 2006:

We are victims of our own success with such a huge number of posts, so perhaps these threads could be merged, so that new members gain access to all the good information in one thread.

Perhaps, but there's nothing quite like a provocitive title to capture one's attention! It's very doubtful I ever would have scanned the ZipDee thread until after the awning fell off and upon posting the event, was directed to that thread.

Nuts!!!! Don't you just hate it when the awning falls off???!!!
