Another TV antenna reminder: when the antenna is up I hang the ignition key from the crank. Can't go anyplace without that key!

New coach does not have a crank up antenna - problem solved even more directly.

Whenever I park my MH I always take a clothes pin and clip it onto the shaft of my parking brake pull knob. It prevents the possibility of someone (mainly kids) or if you have pets, from accidently pushing the knob in and releasing the brake.

nNot quite the same but I have seen two different people pull up to the dump station and just open the valves without using a slinkey.
One used his feet to direct the flow.

There are some real pigs out there. One guy that got banned from our camp, would dig a deep hole and dump his black and grey right before he left. He later got killed in a quad accident. I guess that's Karma.

Biggest no no on my list, Never Ever Ever move the coach not even a little bit with cord/hoses hooked up, slides out, awnings out, bay doors/ entry doors open. Sooner or later something will be an inch or 2 closer than where you are going.

To avoid the "dreaded strike marks" on the toilet bowl take a couple of strips of toilet paper and lay them in the bowl in an X configuration.

If you use walkie talkies to be assisted with backing in to a site, make sure they are charged before you leave home.

How does this keep the birds from sitting on the horizontal part of the ladder rails? Love the idea, but I'm just not understanding how it works.

Oh for Pete's sake, Moonshine...............I thought everyone knew birds absolutely loathe wire ties.

Not entirely accurate. Bleach will loose it's efficacy over a period of time, whether bottled or not. Whether it's 24 hours or not depends on exposure to elements like oxygen and sunlight. I sell chemicals amongst other things for a living and many of my customers are childcare facilities. I have worked closely with my county health department. They require day care facilties to change the bleach/water mixture daily that is used for sanitizing changing tables and other areas because it does loose it's effectiveness.

Now that's a good idea. I've left the University parking lot a few times after tailgating and noticed the shadow of my TV antenna still extened.

I went 150 miles before someone yelled at me that I still had my TV antenna up.
