Like dretired said, take your time when towing your TT in wet weather, allowing for extra stopping distance.
We bring along indoor activities like board games, cards, movies and books just in case the weather keeps us from enjoying the outdoors.
The weather here in Ohio has been cool and rainy all spring with only a handful of days in the 60s and 70s so we feel your pain. We planned to take our TT for a shakedown outing this past weekend to make sure it was ready for a Memorial Day weekend trip but it rained...rained...rained.
