    Though I use my MH whenever possible, I put it into local storage during the week as I don't have parking for it at home.

    After the first week in storage, I noticed marks on the rear - a number of arcs similar in size to what would be the effect of a windscreen wiper. Further examination showed that the paint has actually been abraded off in a number of areas. :cry:

    The culprit? WEEDS! Growing in the hardstanding near the fence, up against the rear of the MH, and whipping around in the winds we had at the time. I now check behind before leaving and cut back any that are near - but the damage is done.

    So - if you put your pride and joy into outside storage, have a quick look before you leave and cut back any growth that is likely to come into contact - they may be only weeds but the damage they can do is considerable :cry:
