And all those bumps on the head really hurt when I forget to have a hat on and with no hair to protect this bald head. Amazing how I can miss seeing something just a few inches above my eye level.

There are times when I appreciate being vertically challenged. Like when walking under my br slide which is about 5' 10" from ground level. or when I'm flying coach coast to coast.....

Look at the positive side; the slide-out sustained no damage___. On a serious note, that was one of our "must have" items when we were looking at a new RV; either the slide was high enough to walk under without hitting or the storage underneath came out with the slide. (scalped myself once, the ER replaced it. Didn't know I had that much blood)

ouch is right!!! I hit my dad burn head on the bedroom slide for the last darn time! I picked up a swim noodle at the Dollar Store and mitered a foot or so of noodle at each lower corner of the slide.... and they're PINK, too The bedroom slide is higher and therefore it has a habit of sneaking up on you when you walk anywhere near it.... head down....spacing out.... and then WHAM... following by rapid mumbling of naughty words and feeling for a bloody scalp

no more...

I thought I was the only one. Always kept it a secret, washed the blood stains out of my shirts in the camp washroom, wore a hat during dinner, changed in the dark till the scabs healed.
I feel liberated.....Nah I still aint gonna confess to the better half, she'll never quit harassing me!

Hey, I don't even have to go out to hit my head. I can do it outside on the slide but inside works, too! Just vacuum under the cabinets or lean over to pick up something under the cabinete. How is it I always find the corner to bang my head on???

My storage bays came out with the slide on my first coach. I sure miss that.
