Remember: bleach solution has to be made new every day. I googled it, and read that it breaks down into salt water after 24 hours, thereby losing its germicidal properties. I make a new solution before leaving one campsite to use when arriving at the next. That way I don't have to touch the spigot at the new site before giving it a good spray.

Exposure to UV light does this to bleach. Keep it in a container out of sunlight and it will last a long time. If it broke down that fast, It'd be impossible to buy pre packaged bleach or cleaning supplies at the store.

This is why I always try to get the spot at the lake next to the boat launch ramp. The entertainment is worth far more then the cost of the spot

Are you perhaps referring to sway bars? In order for me to remove my WDH bars, I have to lower the tongue jack and actually lift the rear end of my truck to remove some of the tension on the chains.

I was annoyed at someone once with my old trailer and forgot to take the tension off the bars before popping them off, made that mistake once and never again whew had to change my shorts after that mistake.

Some of y'all sound like city boys! Touching some stuff ain't gonna kill ya. Go wash yer hands for gosh sakes. I'd hate to see some of you guys try and skin a deer or something. You get all kinds of stuff on ya!

As for helping, why on Earth would anyone resist an offer to help? Y'all can come help me anytime. Suggest away, I need it! Come on over. Sit and watch me, help me some, or do it for me. Whatever. I can't imagine turning anyone down. I figure 99.9999994038938% of Earth is more experienced than I am! Geez.

By the end of the month, I imagine I will have some kind of record for "viral" funny youtube videos after four stops with this new camper..........

The toilet is lower than the roof vent and therefore will be the first to overflow if the flapper valve in the stool is opened.

I don't mind receiving help or helpful suggestions [get them from the DW all the time]. But some people need to keep their help for their own needs.

A few years ago, while backing into a tree lined site, a guy popped out of no where and tried to take over the DW's job of getting me backed in. Anyway, this guy started to give incorrect hand motions & wrong wheel turn motions. After a few minutes, the DW politely asked the guy to step aside, as she can handle it from there.

The guy left and returned to his "RENTED MOTORHOME". The next day, when he pulled out, he did everything wrong to include "forgetting to disconnect" from the power pole [one less site available for a few days], and several small trees were clipped from the rear end's swing out [YES, damaged the coach!!]. And it's people like him that the sign was made - "I'M STUPID'

So, I don't offer help unless I'm asked or if I see an immediate danger!

A most appreciated approach both given and received..."Let me know if you need any help"...
