Default Strange happenings

I arrived home after four days of camping over the Memorial Day Weekend. We went to Cougar WA on the South side of Mount ST Helens.

I was raising the top on the trailer when I heard a metal on metal sound and then a clunk as a small piece angle iron type piece fell out the bottom of the top half.

I took my flashlight and spent the next 2 hours looking all over the front part of my trailer. I raised and lowered the top about 10 times trying to find out what part broke.

It turns out the piece was the end cap to the metal beam on the back half of the bunkbed. It had vibrated loose then clanged around until it was ejected out of the bottom of the trailer seam.

Default strange noise

Good thing this happened at home and you figered it out. I can only speak for my self. From time to time we find screws ect in our home/trailer that is why we save them and small mystery parts that just appear. That is what junk drawers are for!!

Default Not Junk Drawers!

They're not junk drawers! They're Miscelanious Small Parts and Fastener Storage Facilities.
