It impacts railroad crossing warning equipment and power line utilities by conducting electrical current leaks across the insulator that may lead to loss of current, shorting of transmission lines, and wooden pole fires. The cost of corrosion damage and corrosion protection practices for highways and the automobile industry have been reported to cost a staggering 16-19 billion dollars a year.
Nope, it increases conductivity of WATER, not electrical connections. "Chloride ions increase the conductivity of water and accelerate corrosion."

Except when you're wrong, which is 99% of the time according to Ms. Amy.

The A122S really tows nicely. It is that long space from the hitch to the wheels that keeps it behind you, where it should be. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy using the camper once it warms up in your area.

Congrats on the new camper. We got ours a couple days before Christmas. Did a little driveway camping to see how it/we did in the cold. Absolutely love the camper. It was the right size and choice for us. We are looking forward to our first trip out in a couple weeks. Come on warmer weather.... I hope spring finds you folks soon too.

Enjoy the new camper! We brought ours home in December just in time to get it snowed in at the property. But our rash of sun here lately has melted nearly all of it.

Good choice on the A122S. Love mine, tows good behind my 14 Tacoma. Now you can spend the next month or 2, depending on where you’re from, getting it ready for use.

It's still too cold to trouble shoot the wiring issue but briefly opened it up and put bounce scented dryer sheets all over the place so mice hopefully don't get in. I suppose it's normal for the lift arms on the roof to be a bit stubborn in wanting to close when it's so cold?

The surprise snow and ice storms have been

taking their toll on everyone in their paths.

Glad you got your camper, enjoy your camper and camping!
