  • Keeping the Trailer Dry

    Hey from Houston! Sorry to hear about you all in the snow/cold country, even down here for us it's been pretty funky weather all winter.

    I'm getting my new trailer on the road pretty soon and have about 2 1/2 million questions, but the question for today is: How do I minimize the amount of water/overspray/wet dogs shaking out, from getting everything in my trailer soaking wet and damp? I've got a re-circulator I'm going to use as well, and it does seem to spray a good bit of water around as it has a lot of pressure. I even thought about running some shower curtain rails over the tub area to use while bathing? Thanks for any help! Bye for now

    i was worried about that when I was building my trailer...but actually after about 5 months it's going ok.....I have a 4 ft edemco tub..and it has a really tall back and pretty tall sides....once i bathe the dog i will usually towel dry in tub and let him shake off excess water...doesnt seem to get much water on anything.....For the thicker coated dogs i will use my hv dryer as they are in the tub as to not blow the water anywhere but tub area........seems to work ok...
    Good luck ...Kevin

      I've heard of (and will probably install) a shower curtain. It doesn't have to be a permanent pole. I'm sure there are extendable ones you can get.

        I always have a window open just a crack to let the moisture escape. I do most of my drying in the tub. I also wipe down condensation on the windows with a towel. My trailer stays nice and dry.
