Dihydrogen Monoxide

This spring as you begin getting your rig ready for the road please don't forget to check all critical systems that depend on dihydrogen monoxide in your RV systems.

Happy RV'ing!

It's funny but I was thinking more along the lines of electrical storage devices.

During my 28 year career, I've often applied Dihydrogen Monoxide as a fire suppression agent and have found that there's nothing better or less expensive to use on Class A materials. One has to be diligent however in the event that it is being applied in quantities as to increase the loading on a structure whereby a collapse could occur injuring personnel.

One could say that this stuff is so dangerous that it should have an MSDS sheet describing all the hazards. Special handling is required.

Glenn, You concern is noted however I have not seen the previous discussion. Perhaps it could help shed light on this most critical issue if the information contained therein is relevant.

You guys are all joking about dihydrogen monoxide, but it can be pretty nasty stuff. it kills thousands every year and is one of the most corrosive substances known. It will dissolve steel, soften wood, and is impossible to compress.

Treat it with respect!!

Last month I responded to a DhM post, stating that we had plenty of available storage capacity here in Texas. Our prayers were answered -- Our storage facilities are now full, for the first time in a couple of years!
