Ruthe, if your 2014 19' has the rear upper brake lights keep an eye on the cauking. High/extreme heat can warp the connection been the light fixture and trailer body.

Growing up in the 50's there wasn't sunscreen, only tanning oil. We used natures sunscreen, shade, and if we got too much sun we learned our lesson.

Hi Alf
You know very well that when your hair went away along with mine and a few others, Brylcreme, HA ( hair arranger), Butch Wax, all went out of business. It bothered me for a while till I figured out I could service the wheel bearings for years with the stuff I had left over. I'm an original recycler and nuts too.

Actually you can still buy Brylcream. It is back. I remember as a kid with curly hair it was one of those things that got rid of the frizzys.

Check the code date, might be new old stock. Is Lucas Oil the manufacturer? Years ago Purdue University beat The University of Iowa in a football game. The next day the Sports page in the hometown paper led with " Hawkeyes find Griese no kids stuff!" Aaah advertising slogans, the good ones never die.

My family still laughs about my very sleepy father yelling from the bathroom after he grabbed the wrong tube and started to brush his teeth. I don't know why he even had Brylcreem any more, he was bald my entire life.

We parked our 21' in the Texas sun (Big Bend) for three months this spring and the liquid in the bubble level disappeared. Of course, in Big Bend most liquid disappears rather fast.
