Normally I either wash or mow on a given day, not both. But yesterday I decide that I’m going to try to fit in a sidewalk wash at the end of the day. When I’m washing, the machine is at the end of the trailer by the gate, but since I had my mower with me as well, I shifted the machine up to the front. I also run the machine from the trailer. So I knock out the sidewalk and go home. I’m standing between my truck and trailer unloading gear and notice the lid on cargo box I carry on the trailer looks warped. I walk around to the side of the trailer and look at the box from another angle. Oops! Kinda forgot about the hot exhaust thing and had the machine a bit too close to the cargo box when it was running. The movable tray on the inside is literally melted to the box and isn’t so movable any more. Fortunately the only thing that I lost, beside the box, was a tire repair kit and a roll of duct tape. A trip to Home Depot and $60 later, I’ve got a new box and am up and running again. Not gonna make that mistake again!
