    How do you guys keep the salt from running out when you travel? The salt was falling out at a pretty good rate when I run from lot to lot.

    I just load for each job and don't travel with salt in. I did that once and it compacted by the time I got to the job so the impeller wouldn't start:realmad:

    Thanks guys. Is there anything I can coat the inside plastic with to keep the salt flowing better? I have to get out and shake it to get the salt to keep feeding. Not getting a vibrator kit this year.
