I received some requests for information during visits to my trailer. I kept a list of email addresses and the requested information for later transmission. After returning home and sending out multiple replies a few came back as un-deliverable. SO, if you are one of the couples that requested information from Tom Fraser and didn't get anything by Monday night after the rally, please PM me with the request again. I'll try and type it right next time.

Hey Tom, Bonnie and I enjoyed meeting you and Arlene and much thanks for helping us deal with some first time setups! I have been asked by several people at the rally where you found the pull-out drawers under our cabinets that you told RickM about last year.

Great pictures Glen. Thanks for sharing. Sorry we missed it this year (conflicts with important grandkid stuff). It's definitely on the list for next year.

They had to run a course in the desert?!?!?! Dang, glad I wasn't there after all. HA!

Yes, I know it's a typo, but could not resist.

I'd change it, but it's better that way.
And, here are three more, including the minor hail storm.

Finally got home after almost 4 weeks on the road. Had a great time. Picked up our trailer on May26th. Met lots of people at the rally in Osoyoos. Did some camping in the Rockies, and visited family in Calgary and Edmonton. Love how the trailer tows! Here's a couple of pics of what the trailer looked like after hitting lots of bugs in Saskatchewan and North Dakota.

Plastic scrubby and Awesome Cleaner. Awesome will strip the wax so don't get carried away.

I've also recently read that hydrogen peroxide works well on bug guts.

Try Bug Melt. It dissolves the proteins in the bugs and turns them into a mush, which can be easily washed off. No scrubbing that can scratch the surface, and it doesn't strip wax. I've used it on the front of cars and trucks with great results.

It works Donna. When we got home from Canada I went to the garage to grab the bottle only to find I had run out of it. Can't find it around here in too many stores so I just improvised with Car Wash and a Magic Eraser. Bug Melt is much easier.

Too late now but if you had put 303 Aerospace on before leaving, including wheel wells, you would have had a much easier time of it getting all of that off.
