Re: MIL & P20EE again & again & again...

With my early repeated P20EEs I drove several hundred miles after one of them tripped and it was not an issue for me.

Re: dog crates?

Here's a picture of my dog's crate, 36"L X 21.5"W X 25"H.

It's anchored in with carabiners at three corners. I attach many things onto the crate.
