Thanks, but if the truth be known, she would probably pay someone just to get rid of me.

I had planed on this years rally, even made arrangements with FR for some roof repair the week before the rally but senior pets and vet expenses are keeping us away this year. Lost one (our yorkie) a month ago. With the Rally sold out and the pet situation puts this years rally out of the question.
Thank you for your suggestion
You have to have the slide all the way out and then pick up the carpet edge. The slide sits in a trough behind it. When it raises to come in is when it makes contact over it. I had to countersink the screw heads in it to lower them so they would quit tearing up my under floor.

Nice Czendy! We just got back from being out 6 days and last day we called it after a Tornado Watch was close by taking trees down with straight line winds.
