You don't buy green bananas,--------afraid they may not ripen before your gone.

TIP
You should separate bananas to keep them from ripening so fast.
Apparently they emit ethylene gas which signals the other bananas to ripen. When they're separated they get less exposure.

Yeah, I'm an old Navy ET (Electronic technician) It's not a prerequisite for owning older RVs,but it sure helps.

Having a little ET in my past, I agree. The electronics/electrics on these can be intimidating, so a little experience sure is comforting.

You know you're old when you know what a "Corn Binder" is.

Do you remember waiting for the tubes in one of these to warm up before using. We got all the good stuff in the Surface Navy, AKA known as TARGETS to you guys.

You get to the check-out line, see how long it is, and decide what you have in your buggy isn't worth the wait.

I'm not that old, but my Dad was when he told me stories about them on the farm.
