I usually talk myself out of things that might upset me, however having a new Roo 23IKSS I am thinking of installing a Dirt Devil Central Vac

I bought a brand new flatbed trailer from Lowe's once, didn't realize the lug nuts were on backwards (tapered end out) on one wheel. Got about 200 miles down the road (with a very big load), and heard a noise after coming to a stop on taking off again. The lug holes had reamed out so bad when I jacked it up, I could almost pull the wheel off over the lugs. Didn't seem like a big deal to Lowe's until I showed the pics, and the walked them out to their new trailers and found two more wheels with the lugs the wrong way. Lucky nobody got hurt.

Hope the damage isn't worse than this.

I guess you can always put the sticker back on.
