border crossing

Going south Nancy mentioned an orange I believe, that messed things up, now the guard had to call out someone else to take the orange. She had to go into the trailer to get it from the fridge. I just nod my head and say yes sir or mam and I'm a citizen.

I mean really... when was the last (or first) time you've ever heard there was an issue at a border crossing "Gladys, you need to open the trailer so I can check the label inside a cupboard door to make certain your trailer matches the label.

Ron, I'm not poking fun at you honest. But there are so many other things border guards are concerned with. A label that's more like window sticker for a motor vehicle, isn't one of them.
Hi: Donna D... You'll be fine!!! It clearly states "Do not remove" on the label. Make sure you let "Gladys" know too!!! Alf

If Paul had called Escape with the same observation (that the chocks fit different on the two sides) as he reported here, I doubt that the response would have been "oh that's because we put two of the wrong tires on".
The same diagnosis and discussion would have been required. The large number of posts in this thread which have nothing to do with tires on a 21' would not have occurred, yet that was discussion which some members clearly wanted to have.
