Had a van serviced at a dealer once.Brought a wingnut that had been left on the motorbox into the service manager and he had no idea what it was for.Explained it was supposed to hold the air filter cover in place.Because of this type of thing I usually do my own service.

Make fun all you want, but I'll have you know that not one MH has been torpedoed since adapting these new fancy color schemes.

A flashlight fell down from under my dash - still on. I was very cautious about adjusting any of my controls on my 1 1/2 hour flight home. After the weekend I received a phone call from the service center asking me if I had found a flashlight in my plane.
I was lucky that was the only thing that was loose and fell "off" in the dark.
Makes for "pucker power".
One difference between planes and RV's: With planes take offs are optional, landings are mandatory!
