Just to follow up on the cold weather move: this was an 1800 mile, 4 day, 29 hour excursion to the upper Midwest and back to OKC, OK in mid February. Mason City IA would be my coldest stop on Day 2 to pick up a 1958 Sunshine, and then on to a suburb of Chicago IL on Day 3 to pick up a mint condition Centigrade 37. My ride is a 2013 F150 Crew Cab, equipped with a weather proof roll top cover over the bed.
Both machines were taken from a heated inside environment directly to the truck. Back boxes were wrapped in blankets and rode inside the cab. Cabinets were covered, padded and strapped down in the bed.
The ride home was very good clear but cold weather. For example, when I left Mason City the morning low temp was only 2dF, warming up to the upper teens in the afternoon. C37 was loaded up with outside temps in the mid 20's and falling into the teens that night as I left the Chicago area.
There was a couple or three hours of driving in light snow the final day of the trip but the humidity levels remained very low throughout the upper Midwest. The only place I had any concern was actually the final few hundred miles into Oklahoma, where temps ramped up into the 60's, but that was accompanied by totally clear skies and very low relative humidity. As soon as I arrived home both machines were moved inside.
Now home in OKC, I can tell y'all both machines came through completely fine. No issues what so ever. I don't think repeated exposure to 60dF temp swings could ever be good for any pinball machine, but for this single move in stable low humidity conditions everything was just fine.
