So I guess I own a house boat now...



No rain forecast today at all. Came home from camping this morning and parked it in the normal spot.

Luckily its flowing out into the street at this level, so it won't get high enough to touch the bottom of the floor.

Southern Ohio.

It hit 100* today, and I guess the humidity got too high and it turned into rain.

Great day! Ohio hotter than here.

Odd, odd August weather in the US of A.

That stealth pontoon system is great, when does it activate?

You might want to pull the tires and drums, clean them up with some brake cleaner. Odds are, you got some mud and debris in there.

Whats crazy is, we'd had it plugged in. The 30-15amp adapter was UNDER water and still working. As soon as I realized it I hauled ass to the garage and unplugged it. Plugged in a circuit tester expecting a popped breaker, but everything was still good.

Very good point.

From now on, we'll be parking it about 10' further to the left. Just makes it a pain because I have to back the truck up to it while the front of my truck is in between the open gate to the fenced in backyard.

Looks like you need to cut a drainage ditch out to the street.

French drains are ran all through the backyard. Its already drained. We just got an absolutely insane amount of rain. Weather Underground.com says we got 2.5 inches in less than 2 hours.
