Re:Willy Dog Carts
The so called Hurricane Umbrella is anything but, it isn't even vented. The condiment bottles and tongs are the lowest quality possible. Better ones can be found at your local dollar store and would be an upgrade. The meat cooler drain leaked profusely. One of the burner control knob/valve has a broken stop nut so the valve is loose and makes maintaining a flame level virtually impossible. The burners blow out at the slightest breeze. Cart specs on website indicated a two-stage LPG regulator, what I received was a very low quality single stage regulator which may be another reason burner control is difficult. Supposedly the meat cooler was supposed to be fabricated with a "built-in-thermometer", which I pointed out to my local HD during the Plan Review/HACCP Plan. Yet there was not one installed. Have contacted Willy Dogs with my concerns and was quickly reminded about the disclaimer on their website that states Willy Dogs has the right to change their specifications without notice to improve overall design or functionality. Problem is the changes were anything but an upgrade except for maybe their bottom line by cutting corners. They have promised to send me a new drain assembly for the meat cooler. Not holding my breath on that one. The burner control knob/valve issue has not been brought to their attention as of yet, as this malfunction was discovered last night, while I was troubleshooting the burner control issue. I will be contacting them this Mon about the burner problem. Please don't get me wrong the overall build and structure is sound, good welds, smooth corners. But all these problems place doubt in my mind as to what other problems am I going to have in the future, will the trailer wheels and bearings suddenly fail in the near future. Additionally had trouble with trailer lighting right out the crate. As I soon discovered and repaired myself, they had applied a zinc coating on the trailer tongue, so when they drilled out a hole for the ground screw, the ground terminal could not achieve a good ground. I got out my Dremel tool and ground away the zinc coating down to bare metal, re-installed the ground screw and terminal and problem was solved.
