Specific Labels

Please consider labeling the tank pulls with specifics. You wouldn't believe the amount of confusion and conversation we've had over this (especially with the different labels to my spelling and grammar experts) -finally just had to get the sharpie out:

good idea. Mine are color coded Gray and Black On my first TV, I put colored tape on the valves so I would know what was what. (it only had a grey and black tank)

Sorta off topic but not really:

DH used a label maker to create a label for the battery cut-off switch, yeah, it's confusing as all git-out;

"OUT is ON"

I have a nifty little label maker made by Brother that I bought at Staples. It prints labels on 1/2 inch wide Mylar tape. It has a little keyboard and screen so that you can see the label before it is printed out.

On our rig before this one I had a label on the tongue that said "Drop 3 Links", telling me how many links on the WDH to hook up. It was easy to forget over the winter. Over the tire well, I made a label that said "50 PSI" so that I didn't have to squat to see the writing on the tire to see how much to inflate to.

By the time I was done with making labels, our rig looked like an old Batman TV show with a label on everything. But it did help.

(chuckle) yeah, ours is headed in that direction! I had a red decal made, one inch high letters, which I put on the entry door on the bottom of the window:

Antenna Down

Locking the door, putting up the steps and folding in the handrail is the last thing we do before transit, so there's always that reminder right at eye level. It's gotten some chuckles and thumb ups from other campers.

That's the same label maker DH used for the battery switch, BTW.

I agree the labels could be better but did you really need the magic marker thing? As you look at the handles in relation to your flooplan the bathroom is to the left and the kitchen is to the right and thatís the way the handles are positioned.
