I've heard of 5'rs being stopped and having to remove their side ladders as the HP watched.

Iíve just given up and accepted that Iím going to crack my head open on that same cabinet corner over and over again. After doing it enough times I find that for some reason I have instinctively developed sub- conscious ability hold my head lower when I walk anywhere near that same cabinet. Iím sure it will wear off and Wham Iíll getter again!

Don't park your Class A in the ditch!

Don’t park your 31’ class A in the ditch because there is no other place to park! If you don’t listen to that advice than don’t be surprised if when you try to back out the same way you got in, … If you can get it out! ... you find yourself backing into a power pole that the DW couldn’t see while she's looking out the back window! …. ME: “I have it in reverse … why am I not going anywhere?” DW: “YOU! backed into a power pole!” ME: "[ moderator edit ]”

Red face

Donít trust youíre GPS when it tells you to turn off and onto a road that is obviously NOT a road! Ö If you decide to trust the GPS and find yourself four miles farther down Ö which you now realize is an old railroad bed converted into a bike trail with no place to turn around, chances are you will come to a railroad bridge with only 4Ē of clearance to each side of your MH. Ö. Can you hear the wooden boards creek as I cross the bridge with my 31í Pace Arrow, all the while try to explain to my freaked out DW that it should hold our weight? Ö.. The first bridge was the hardest! Ö. DW wouldnít look down to the ravine bottom which was around 75í below!

Some things not to forget.

Don't park to close to the curb, I did and when I open the door the step hit the curb and broke the lever that exstends the step.
A frind left the camp grounds one time without his wife she never let him forget it eather.
Just a thought.

Don't put your cover on until the outside furnace vent cools. Melts a little hole in the cover. Sure wish I had finished the garage this year.

Why? I've been using it for more years than I care to admit and have NEVER had a tank problem. But that's only my experience since 1957 too, YMMV!

You should, after the AW
Sorry, but wrapping straps around the awning will NOT keep it from unfurling. You need to keep the awning roller from turning and the straps don't do it.

I never turn my "Step-Out" button on until I get to my campsite. Even at home, when I'm in and out.

Agree.

Look up the Consumer Report on the time it takes various brands of toilet paper to dissolve.

Brand..................................Dissolving Time in Seconds

Charmin Plus 1-Ply..................................9
MD 2-Ply............................................... .9
Coronet 2-Ply........................................12
Angel Soft 2-Ply.....................................12
Scott 1-Ply............................................17
Soft 'N Gentle 1-Ply ...............................18
Soft Weve 1-Ply.....................................20
Marcal 1-Ply..........................................20
Soft 'N Gentle 2-Ply................................21
Seventh Generation 2-Ply........................21
Quilted Northern Super 2-Ply ..................69
Charmin Ultra 2-Ply ...............................77
Cottonelle 1-Ply ....................................96
Charmin 1-Ply .....................................180

The TPs with an excellent disintegration rating from a Aug 2000 Consumer Report article are:

Albertson's Soft Choice Ultra
Safeway Select Softly Ultra
Quilted Northern Ultra Soft
Quilted Northern Soft Prints
Target
Kroger
Angel Soft
Charmin Plus with Unscented Natural Aloe

They never include the big box store brands. That dissolve even sooner,
