Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Pancakes for breakfast!
Always wondered how they replaced the boards without unwelding hold downs. Answer: painfully in squeaky voice
I noticed that was the first board to be replaced. I hope there's a little something in that tool cart for swelling.....
Rang his bells! Gee, did I spell that correctly?
I don't know about anyone else but my legs just crossed involuntarily.
(DeplorabeFloridaMikey) I crossed my legs AND groaned! That's a big hurt.
I've replaced all the boards in my trailer by bending them in the middle like that, and it was a big enough PITA as it was without taking a shot to the boys.
Seemed like I was replacing 3 or 4 boards every year. About 10 years ago I had a local welding shop put a diamond tread floor on the bitch.Spendy, but if I'd waited till a month or so ago, the steel would probably have been cheaper than the wood.
Did my trailer a few years ago as well. Nope steel went through the roof before lumber.
And just to add more 'ouch' to the 'ouch'...those are 2x's. Little extra ooomph in the spring back.
Most of these trailers have a single piece of strap or flat bar holding the boards in place. I've found its easier to grind a few welds and re-tack, than go through what he went endured.
