    Yeah Greg, we left last Wednesday. Had a flat on the tailwheel on the Taxi out to leave After that no problems except the Rain leaking in . It was raining cats and dogs in Eloy AZ and I didn't even check to see if their was a hanger around for the night

    Only things I have found that need looking at are the tailwheel ( cocked to one side . Spacers ?) and one of the (Pitcocks?) where you sump the left fuel tank looks bad . Doesn't seem to leak but has left a rust stain on the underside of the wing

    12 hours of flight and its used no oil. Starts quick Love it

    If you think you will be storing outside for a while, you might want to invest in a good canopy cover.

    https://www.aircraftcovers.com/PA20
    In particular, PA20-011, which covers the cabin and extends 36" outboard of wing roots.

    Good luck, have fun!

    On our airplane we have a U-channel glued to the edge of the wing root fairing. Similar to https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catal...s/uchannel.php

    That sounds like a good idea you wouldn’t happen to have a picture of that, would you?
    Thanks Greg
