Here is a photo of the bumper material I used to cover the nasty end cap. It has peel and stick adhesive on the backside and comes in 10-12 inch strips as I recall. I found it in the baby-proof section of Home Depot. It think it is designed for table ends.

Any brim gets in the way when you have to look up in tight quarters. Donít get me started on progressive lenses or bifocals.

I need to be extra careful because I have zero sensation in the skin graft on my scalp so I wonít know if itís been injured.

My husband split his skull open on the bedroom slide. I keep butterfly bandages on hand and was able to close it well enough that there is no scar. Better than stitches because if you can get on it soon enough the skin edges won't die and you will have less of a scar. By the time you get in anywhere to get stitches its too late. They often use too large needle and catgut and that leaves a scar too.

Now we use the always attractive color coordinated pool noodles. I guess the advantage is you cant miss them against your neutral colored coach.

I am short enough I can walk under the bedroom slide. My skill is tripping on things and falling down the MH steps. I put a pool noodle on the gas line to the BBQ so I don't trip over it. Plus last place we stayed we had a problem with lazy people cutting through the middle of our spot. Almost ran over one backing in. I didn't care if they got burned but didn't want the subsequent fire after knocking the BBQ to the ground.

I think I am going with a full face with shield MC helmet!
Two years ago, crawling under the motor looking for that ground strap nut that I dropped, while cleaning the ground, I scratched the right lens in my glasses, a good deep one!
So when I got back home I went and got new lens in my old frames, 200 dls each!
Last year the first day back at the coach, was getting something out of the basement, stood up, turned around, and BANG, walked into the awning arm, you guess it, whacked the right lens again, nice deep scratch in the right lens! This time cut my skin right next to the eye also! Got back home and went back to the eye doctor, he just smiled, ordered me another lens! Another 200 dls!
So this year, we will see? Rail!

+2, child proof padding should do the trick.
