    Same at my TX shop. Big fans help until you figure out you're standing in a convection oven. We put in overhead doors at both ends. Changing the air rather than moving the air seems to help.

    That’s plausible. My baggage door collects water in the rain. If I open it it drains in a steady stream. If I don’t open it first and fly it? No water in the door when I land.

    How much water drained?

    Is the headliner wet? Probably not since the carpet isn't wet. That means the top cabin probably isn't the source. Wing roots, cabin vents, windscreen lower strip, etc all...

    Nope, but we'd all use overhead hoists until they aren't available. Not available describes 99.9% of my airplane life. In this case Eddie already bought hydraulic bottles.
