Bi directional relay delay (bird)

Also know as Battery Control Center

Haven't seen that term lately. 30 years ago it was used to signify a RV site:

Back In Remote Dump station

My best guess...

I believe B.I.R.D is an Intellitec acronym for; Bi-Directional Isolator Relay Delay.

Can also be a respiration device for people with breathing problems



Something you really don't want to need.

Been camping, rv'ing most of my life as kid, then kept on as adult... never heard BIRD as an acronym anywhere.

Heard a term "can't find that bird", or "that's an elusive bird"... it was only a statement not an actual thing.

I'd be interested if someone actually has an RV term.

Even today, the WanderLodges still have a good-sized following.

A friend has one, and we decided to get together with him in Death Valley a couple of years ago. What he didn't tell me was that we would arrive on the same day that his "Bird group" would also arrive from their time in Quartzite.

We were in line, checking into the campground, with a jillion of 'em.

A majority of them, though a number of years old, are outfitted fabulously!

A real eye-opener.....

They are!

My former in-laws had one. I was lucky enough to be allowed to use it occasionally.
