Well, we don't have a Silverado yet, but it's definitely closer on our radar now.
I installed a new radiator at my cousins house the day after it blew and the rest of the week went by without incident... except for weather.
The average temperature was 92+ with 70+% humidity every day. Tuesday the 3rd was the worst day for weather. Low 90's with severe thunderstorm warnings. They weren't kidding. We had at least 4 waves of thunderstorms roll through with just enough time to dry everything off and reset all of our chairs, then it would let loose again.
After stowing the awning and anything else that could be blown away, we decided that we would go into town to see "Brave" with the boys to escape the rain. It was a cute movie with a great message, but I wouldn't necessarily take the younger kids. For a Disney/Pixar film, it was kinda violent in parts and a few cartoon butts thrown in for comedic relief.
That evening we met my mom just a few miles away in Marine City for dinner and to pick up my oldest son. While driving there, lightning struck a telephone pole just behind us and blew a transformer on the pole in front of us. Needless to say, it's been an interesting week.
Despite all the weather and car issues, the trailer performed flawlessly. Neither bunkend leaked a single drop, the A/C soldiered on without a drop in performance and the fridge did ok keeping things cold.
I did find out why our entry door has been so hard to close. It appears that the door is bowed out. The top and bottom of the door contact the frame first, then you have to compress the middle to get it to latch. The kids had a very hard time latching it. Usually with several attempts to slam it shut.
Lucky me, I get to haul it back to dealer again.
