My trailer has these cushioned pads on the inside. I'm guessing they're bumper pads? They are on the wall, divider and rear door - presumably to give the horse something pliable to bounce against. The "bumper pads" or cushions or whatever they are called are old and cruddy looking, so I would like to replace them. Is this something you can buy, or have to make, or what? How do you replace them?
The rear door of my trailer is divided into three parts (top, middle, bottom). The middle part has that cushion on it, but it looks like it's a piece of wood set inside a metal frame. The wood is starting to rot so I need to somehow take it out and replace the wood, then the cushion. How on earth do I do that? I didn't see a way to open the frame up to remove the wood - it looks welded shut.
My truck is a 2003 Ford F250, 5.4L V8 gas engine. It has just over 119k miles on it. I've had it for about a year and a half. It was my primary driving vehicle (about 20-30 miles per day) up until early August when I got a job in the next city over. Since a 40 minute commute in a huge truck is less than ideal, I bought a put-put commuter car that gets me about 40 mpg (A Ford Focus if anyone is curious). ANYWAY, I do not want to sell the truck. I know there's no such thing as a "forever truck" but I would like this to be my "for a really long time truck". I use my Focus as my primary vehicle now. The truck sits largely unused, but I make sure to drive it at least 1-2x per week. Is there anything that I should do to make sure that the truck doesn't fall apart from lack of use? I know vehicles can 'suffer' from just sitting and I really love this truck.
