That was my first thought but DW said if I used Tape I could live somewhere else, we ain't hillbillys.

My DW would call it the thing on the thing. "You know - THE thing!!"

And then I ask what she meant by "the thing". That's where she replies by saying "you weren't listening were you?" And to make matters worse, she will sometimes start talking about "the thing" out of the blue without giving me any clue about which "thing" she had in her brain. Or she will be talking about one particular "thing" and then switch to talking about an entirely different "thing" in mid-conversation. Argh...

Sound familiar or is it just me that has to live with this? Not sure if this is a symbiotic or dysfunctional relationship, lol? I'm an engineer and I say this because to me, the world revolves around detailed specifications for even the smallest and seemingly most insignificant of things. There is no such thing as a generic "thing" in my world...... Drives DW nuts when I ask for a sufficiently detailed outline of the "thing" she is talking about so I can properly understand and assess what she is talking about to be able at least try and give an intelligent response. But that's okay, I do the cooking and she cleans the dishes and all is good in the universe.

Sometimes I will suddenly deflect what "thing" she is talking about to something urgent, like say the weather. Then she will completely forget about what thing she was talking about. It seems sometimes like "things" just can't be that important, hehe.

BTW, those "thingies" should be available at all the usual RV parts vendors and maybe ebay also. I would start at a local dealer since it can't cost that much. If you could figure out what the part is officially called and even better, have a part number for it you'll find it easier. I once had to replace the flip-up cover on our propane tank cover. Was getting nowhere until I found a Camco part number and voila, got one...

I feel your pain brother! I keep telling her it's a Flux-Capacitor, she still calls it a Do-Hicky.
