RE: Damage caused by leaking water lines

Unfortunately the person/company that did the original repair work saw them coming as when i saw the bill for the original work they were overcharged by about 800%. It's a shame that there is outfits out there that take advantage of people. Yes Greg i did talk t...

RE: Floor Joist Raising

Hi again Del
If possiable check from underside of trailer. doing it this way you don't create further damage inside and tho it will be cramped and a tight area to work in going from underside is better. let us know what you find.
