To answer oakmunky, I think it is primarily demographics. Many of us are of a certain age where the warranty has run out and stuff goes wrong. I had a heart attack six months ago while working on our teardrop. It was of the widow-maker variety, full blockage of one artery, thanks to quick action I am fully recovered.

Wow - had no idea! The rainbow smiled on you that day. May it smile on you and all RVMs daily.

My $.02, keep nose of coach heavily waxed, if nothing else gets waxed do the nose. Bugs come off much easier. Then when you wash them off, wax the noise again, I use that spray on stuff from Walmart, wipe on, wipe off, easy, cheap, keeps bugs under control!

Darn... I thought my body would out last my brain. I think they're running neck-n-neck.

I thought the banks stopped giving those out the same same they stopped paying you for use on any nickels you may still have with them in safe keeping.

That's just a toaster. Do I lay it on it's side to make it an oven?

Leno mentioned something last night about a toaster and a paramedic call.

Well it's time for another RVM Shameless Promotion. Time to shake and rattle the mystical electrical device and see if any lurking, visitors or shy potential mutants have been patiently awaiting an invitation to join the RVMs - the RVMdom - and take their rightful place on the Rainbow!

-- Think you might be an RVM? Wonder what it's all about? --

If your beloved RV doesn't have a thing or two but ya don't miss it cause ya don't need it and you make the journey your destination, you have what it takes to be the next RVM!!

Just tell us what ya don't have and don't miss and join the RV Mutant curiousity. Next number up is RVM51. You know you want it!

The journey is our destination! Join us!! We're not the cool kids - but we have a grand time on this thread - and we plan to have an even grander time at the First Ever Grande Curiosity (RVMspeak for rally) in April 2014. Who knows, you may even want to join us for that Super Fantastic Time.

Mike - it may only be a toaster - but it has been know to travel in the oven securely wrapped in a towel. Presto-Change-O - toaster oven!

Mutated math:

A baseball and a bat cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

Quick!

Answer!

You probably said 10 cents. And you're wrong. The correct answer is 5 cents.

Prove me wrong and I'll pay you 5 cents.

End of mutated math. (Actually it is not mutated.)

We lost a new friend we made here at the RV Park where we base. He was only 41 and had four kids ages 13-16. Rick was a super nice guy and has become a good friend to Barb and I. Tues. nite he rode his Harley with another neighbor on his Harley to get a bite to eat at a local restaurant. When headed home they were entering the freeway when a young girl switched lanes in front of him clipping his front wheel. He was doing about 50mph when he was knocked off his bike and hit the road head first. He was knocked out they say as he slid in the Lane next to him and a senior driving a small pickup ran over him killing him. The poor man was so distraught over the accident that he had a heart attack and had to be care-flighted to the hospital.

As if that wasn't enough, the next day a close friend of my family for many years passed away in his sleep. He was 65.

Now today I find out my golfing buddies sister passed away. I've known Christina for many years. She lived a great life for 91 years. Soooooo needless to say, we are bouncing around trying to comfort families and preparing for three funerals starting tomorrow. Bear with me and I will get the update posted soon. In the meantime keep these families in your prayers and thanks for your understanding.

H&B
Sorry to hear of your many losses. Our thoughts are with you.

Haven't been here for a bit. Still reeling over the bill of $2000 for various repairs on the Dynasty. Many of which were a result of neglect of the previous owner. Exhaust brake, brake rollers and hoses, AC temp control, step cover actuator. Got full fluids and filters changed on engine and gennie. Did a Dyno on the Cummins and NO codes!

She's ready to roll anywhere now. Actually, for everything I got done, it was probably half of what it should have cost me.

I'm back on the rainbow again, although the pot of gold is a little lighter.

Well Les,

For one welcome back, for two, it always seems to cost more than was expected, but at least you now know all of the systems you had worked on are good for at least a year or two.

Although we have the choice to freely choose to live on the rainbow, it in no way means that living on the rainbow is free.

Cheers !!!
