Loan your RV to Health care workers so their family stays safe

What an excellent idea and a great way to ease the mind of an already stressed Health care worker!

Has giving me the opportunity to air one of my peeves. The woman has feared when her husband would come home with his "Scrubs" on, he would be bringing the virus with him. That's it! I've retired from 30 plus years as firefighter/paramedic and back in my day, medical workers wore their street clothes to work and changed into scrubs. Leaving, they would change back into street clothes and leave the scrubs for the hospital laundry service to clean them so they would have a fresh set each day. Now scrubs have become a better fitting fashion statement or uniform that you see being worn in restaurants, grocery stores and any other public spaces. And I understand if you left your personal scrubs to be cleaned you probably would never see them again. I don't care if they are the emergency room Doc or the check in desk, they came form the same environment. Thank you, I'm done

You have to be out of your mind to loan your rv to someone who is or could be exposed to the virus. Sell maybe loan no way. Good luck getting it back in safe and working order. Also from the sound of it the doc can afford to buy An rv if he wanted to. I feel for the workers but not going to put myself in harms way. To each there own.

Enjoy the journey

Can you imagine the look on their face when you tell them "When you are done, don't drop the toilet paper in the toilet, put it in this here little trash can"

I would strongly suggest anyone considering this check with their insurance company first. In many cases, you will have no coverage if you loan your RV out like this. That includes no comprehensive coverage (fire, hail, burglary), even if it was not the "loan-ee's" fault.

How do they hook up the loaner RV ?

Water is easy but power is a problem and sewer becomes an issue in a few days.

# 4 here

This might be my saving grace should someone close to me get sick.
I'd donate to housing for them though.

The lady should have her husband change clothes before coming home. Perhaps a shower. And I agree that wearing scrubs (visibly soiled or not) from work to a public place should be greatly discouraged.
