I have hit the awning arm more times than I care to admit. A friend has a big orange sign that says "Hit Head Here" hanging on his.
If I see one I intend to buy it.

Well we can add some more head banging to the list and one of the responders on this thread has a broken collar bone from an awning....I am not kidding about this. I am in the same park and he is really hurting but doing OK. Today my neighbor came around my MH only to bang his head on my outside mirror so I guess we can add mirrors to the list. Keep those head banging stories coming....it makes me feel better knowing I am not the only one loosing brain cells.

Add shower frame to the list of head banging contraptions. I'm rather short & to get to the crank to close the vent in the bathroom, I need to step up into the shower pan. One day, I misjudged either my height or the lowness of the shower frame & POW! After some carefully chosen cuss words, a bag of frozen peas pressed against my head, 3 extra strength Tylenol capsules & 20 minutes of lying down, I could see straight again.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

'Been there and done that' too many times to keep track -- regardless of the type of RV, MH or fiver, I've managed to contact some area with my noggin. Appears to be a right of passage for RV'ers to christen their toys with a piece of scalp or hair!

I have learned to unhook the tow car from the drivers side only. This is necessary so I will not forget the roof latter is just the right height to catch my head after being bent over release things. No matter how many times I hit my head and then retaliated by striking the bottom rung it would not keep out of my way. Stupid latter.

I'm 6'6" tall so I've banged them all. However, last week, while under the coach to adjust my Safe T Steer I banged my head on the main chasis frame bar... right on the end of the beam where the corners are nice and sharp. It's important to note that there is absolutely no give to these beams! Ouch.

I've almost knocked myself out on the front TV. More than once, so I guess I don't learn very well.

FULL BODY ARMOR!!!! Only way to help. just when you think you have all the bends and twists figured out, one jumps out and bites you (or hits you) ooohh! my head (or insert whatever) hurts just thinking about it. In or out, doesn't matter. These things are lethal weapons.

I just went and kissed my wife's head and told her I was sorry. We pick out MH up next Thursday.
