Here's a Laugh On Me

Yesterday we were travelling from one campsite to another for about 200 miles in our Class C Aspect. I kept hearing a noise that seemed to be coming from the passenger side of the driving compartment. It sounded like a door was ajar or a window was down slightly. It would also come and go. Finally my wife heard it too and we searched for the source but couldn't find it. I checked the engine cover and all the windows. At a stop we got out & walked all around to no avail. We continued on resolving ourselves to the noise. Finally my wife claimed the noise was coming from my side of the cab & seemed to be related to vehicles passing us. I felt it was coming from her side so we both began checking the middle of the cab.

As an aside, did you know some RVs have back up cameras with a microphone in the camera? I guess I must have hit it when turning it on. What a great feature!

We've done that too and it drove me crazy for about 100 miles, and then for some reason I pushed the button on my Camera screen and saw that the volume was still up from when we had last backed into our spot. My wife just looked at me and laughed as I was just assuming the worst.

Routine maintenance

Had a friend of ours relate a "Robin Williams moment" with his dump valves. Now DH lubes the grey and black water valves. A little TLC makes them slide better.

Me, too. And I forgot the drain plug on a boat once also. But I will never call my wife by the wrong name twice. I wouldn't survive the first. She & Lorena Bobbitt were college roommates. Lorena was known as the nice one.
