Don't know if it is the same wind, but we got 50 MPH gusts in Phx today, and then it rained mud.

Pretty sure wind is a given. The only way to avoid it is to sit somewhere and eat 5 bacon ramaki.

I'm going to enter in the State Fair of Texas foodie contest next year. As originally envisioned

Roll 1 slice of turkey bacon tightly, wrap 1 slice of beef bacon around it. Then wrap 1 slice of maple piggy bacon around that and 2 slices of good smoky peppered bacon around that. Stick a toothpick in it and drop it in a deep fryer. It's a bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon rumaki.

Suggestions for improvement welcome. Prize money to be shared equally among contributors. Especially interested in bacon flavored dipping sauce ideas.

Pretty sure a telephone pole would taste like bacon if it skewered the 5 Bacon rumaki.

Problem is, my old track swings between the old straight steel playground slide coated in astroglide to a P-trap of a sink drain after washing a long haired cat in it.

Usually, it's manageable, but it got a bit managed towards the clogged P-trap and the system does what a clogged drain tends to.

It's since been roto rootered, but it's a slow recovery right now.

This thread reminds me of an Energizer Bunny Commercial that has run its course or gone berserk! Can't totally fathom which just yet.

Well, it's not the Energizer Bunny, cause they all leak before they die. More like a Copper Top, as it's one of the top threads. Myself, I am exclusively a Dollar Tree Sunbeam fan. Just as powerful and last as long or longer than the others.... and only 99 cents for 4 AAA or AAs.

Well, after carefully looking at my situation, by all appearances, it may only cost me for the slide awning question mark arm. I noticed now that the dealer didn't replace the broken lock on the rear main awning arm which when the rogue gust of wind hit, allowed the arm to swing out and unfurl the main awning.

I didn't have any tools or ladder with me so while on the roof, I took my belt off and wrapped it around the arm. My pants fell down while climbing down the rear ladder exposing a big crack to traffic coming from behind. Got 2 horn honks. I limped into Mountain Home Idaho, bought some tools and a ladder, pulled the whole thing out at the Walmart and too my surprise, it rolled back in. I zip tied the arms solid and off I went.

The next day, by Pendleton, wind from the opposite direction, unfurled the slide awning and the arms were flapping.

I think this was also caused by the dealer as I don't believe they locked the question mark arms after they took their photos for their web site. I was set up for failure. Being by myself, I tried to let out the slide from inside a bit at a time and bent one of the arms. Tucked the awning cover back in and Zip tied the arms to the coach.
