DH safety question??

Does CW sell protective cages for DH's? Just wondering. We just bought our 1st MH & I'm concerned that if DW gets tired of me in such an enclosed space that I may need something for protection! And yes...even though I'm 6'4"...she can still take me! Yikes

Shark Cage.

Then go to Home Depot for some heavy duty wheels for it so you can get away!

My wifes grandmother offered this sage advice to my wife almost 40 years ago. She told her that if I hit her to wait until I was asleep. Then sew me up in the bed sheets and bit the SH out of me. That was one smart old lady. I haven't slept well in 38 years. With one eye open it is difficult.

When it's been raining for three days or more, and you're cooped up in the MH, just stay in the bedroom and be very, very quiet.

Alas that is two options they usually leave out.

The Safety cage and the Ejection Seat.

Someone however DOES sell a big button labeled "Ejection Seat" Alas, I forget who.. It's a peal and stick, No wires, Just a button.

Wally the welder can weld you up a driver's cage if you wish.


Or a Shark cage from a dive shop.
I don't know where to get an Ejection seat.

My husband says I was nicer to him living in a 23.5' 5th wheel during a North Dakota winter then I am in a two story house on a 1 acre lot.

The smaller the space, the faster one learns to compromise.

On one of our early trips DW and I got into an unpleasant discussion. I turned up the highway and she asked "Where are you going?"
Me:"HOME" I'll drop you off and go fishing, anything is better than this"
We talked it out, the rest of the trip was fabulous.

On the road

My DW seems to hold me responsible for the boneheaded actions of everyone else on the road. Especially in the SF Bay Area, home of the most aggressive and self entitled drivers in the country.

A good radio will sometimes drown out the noise. I've found that Alan Holdsworth Metal/Jazz/Fusion played at about 70% volume makes her seem very quiet. (she does not share my eclectic tastes in music )

My DW was a properly and refined raised NJ girl who went to catholic high school and college.........far unlike me. I have found that when she is really mad at me for whatever reason I just start telling her dirty jokes. It may take two or three but it usually does the trick. For some reason it also has some other benefits for me around 11:00 PM.

Our tastes in music are also incompatible. Me, Blues, Big Band Swing and good Southern Rock. Her, the likes of Josh Groban, Julio Iglesias and other male heart throbs. No matter how high I could turn up the volume she could and would still shriek through it. My best strategy is just to patronize her with the tried and true phrase, "Yes Dear", and then just keep doing what I'm doing. Eventually she gets the message.

I think this needs to be added to the conversation stream on the fulltimers forum about "personal space". I think I will add shark cage to the options. The comments leads me to believe that the idea of personal space is possibly not only a good one, it may be a life saving one. LOL
