Yep..looks that way. I may not need the covered windows after all. Let's see if it moves even farther west.

Talking Re: Getting ready for Hurricane Irma (Going to ride it out)

We took off Thursday night drove to the beach house in Garden City. Got up yesterday and loaded ours and a good friends carts on the 18' trailer. Got all the pictures and our mermaid light out of the trailer. A few clothes and cleaned out the fridge just in case.
Left last night about 9pm and drove 300 miles in 4:10 minutes.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Getting ready for Hurricane Irma (Going to ride it out)

I would probably stay too....after two break in attempts I am super scared of thieves (and looters).

Good luck.

Heard Irma is headed west so you guys on the east coast may have an easier time.

If I had the money, this is what I'd build.

I believe if you are in your house, there is no justification needed!

Especially in Florida.

Not so much in NY...

Re: Getting ready for Hurricane Irma (Going to ride it out)

I would just plug in some electrical cords and scatter the open ends around, but set them high up on a chair......
2 ft is the max limit height for an average looters comfort zone... so this statistically works out well.
It is the perfect 'trip hazard' across the room.....make sure its not a GFCI .
.....just saying, lol
