    Got a trailer with some dry rot (cracking) on the sidewalls. How bad? On a scale from 1 to 10, I give em a 5. Tire tread is like new so I hate to throw the tires out.

    I've noticed when I am running my A/C in the summer, I can still feel a little warm air coming out of the defroster vants over the windshield. Though the A/C still makes it comfortable in the cab, I'm thinking the A/C would be more efficient (cooler) if I stopped the coolant from circulating...
