Dogpatch, just turn it around with the bill in the back and you won't get any shadows. But, uh, be careful -- isn't that the way some gangs wear theirs? :-)

Sup Dawg? What it is! I'm down with that.

I rarely wear one anymore and if I do, in many cases, it is backwards. LOL

Used to wear a cowboy hat a lot when I lived in Alberta. Then met my wife and moved to a different era LOL. Still have mine in a box.
Funny what you'll do when you meet someone.

Simple principle applies here -- if Momma is happy she will make everyone else happy. If Momma isn't happy... you better find a good hiding place.

I've also tried laying the shore cable ahead of the tires and moving a few feet forward. Somehow, the cable still jumps under the tires. I now have a clothes pin clipped to the ignition keyhole that has "Cables" written on it. I also do a walk-around and use my side view mirrors before putting it in gear.

One time, I got to a tire store with 15' of my BatteryMinder cable tagging along. We're talking 10+ miles to the tire store and no one on the freeway honked and pointed to alert me.

we haven't even gotten out of the driveway and there is bumper damage on our RV. We think it might have been a particular delivery driver because since then he keeps ducking and not making eye contact! He is forgiven, I honestly expected that I would be the first to create work for hubby to repair. B-)

So... I have no clue what I have in the air bag area. Did not even know there was such a thing! I am reading this thread tho...... Also sent a link to my husband! To say I am apprehensive about getting this thing delivered in a week or so, would be putting it mildly. I am scared to death! Expensive thing to mess something up on! Ya'll please share check list and other "stuff" that will help
Thanks so much!
I know how you feel. I'm feeling quite apprehensive and ours is a used unit rather than new. Hubby knows these things but I am completely new to it and have NO CLUE. This thread is a real eye opener.

When DW is guiding you through the gate of the rv storage lot, do not assume you are clear of the gate when she walks away.

Don't leave the key on when you are finished checking your wipers to see why they don't work, and move on to another project. When you put the charger in the hood area to charge the battery make sure its not gonna fall to the Concrete Chargers won't survive a 5' fall. That 1 was only a year old. And don't leave Battery Chargers out in the rain like my Son in law did. That's why that 1 was only a year old. Got to go get a new charger today:bang head:

The W stands for wife. The D? It could be lots of things depending on your mood. Same for DH, or ____ hubby. SIL is son-in-law.
