So I was a really idiot and on the rush to get out of town I left my PA 14 on the kart for 8 days. I know it's not even supposed to be left on there for an hour. Has anyone heard of horror stories from leaving it on the kart for extended time? Is there anything I should do to prevent damage?

Thanks

Rob

So is there damage? It would be scuppers pushed up into the hull. Maybe the deck areas around scuppers pushed up. Hull bottom distortion?

Its a bigger issue in heat wave, especially if loaded. I left my old adventure on a cart for a day in the middle of a hot spell. Dind't damage the scuppers as it was also supported by a padded crossbar, but it did end up looking like a banana with bonus rocker. Flattened out again though after storing level for a while

No damage noted and it was stored inside. I'm just worried about long term structural integrity. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid but if they recommend no longer than 30 mins, than a week can't be good!

Nothing would be hidden. You would see it. I'm guessing that you are fine.
