Can they be tied down securely? Or does the whole thing just have to be removed and we're stuck and need a tow?
One recommendation is to buy or make several colored tags to hang on your steering wheel once you've settled into your RV park space (or even in a quick parking lot stay to rest your eyes):
One tag for leveling jacks
One tag for awning
One for slides
One... DW - Yes, that can happen!!!!! Especially if you just had an argument about leaving the awning out at the last stop.

Thanks. Sometimes it's hard to tell the meaning of a post from the words alone.

I think the silence would have been a bigger warning than a tag

You must have created a new user name so YOUR wife wouldn't recognize your post and bang you amongst the head !!! :0

I found a baseball cap is a dangerous tool to use when doing a walk around
