Bad things can happen in a motorhome

If you spend anytime reading RV forums and see the stuff that happens to people that own RVs, whether self inflicted or just plain bad luck, you would almost be afraid to own one of these houses on wheels. But, we all keep coming back for more punishment, either keeping the same unit for years or trading in for the next one every 2-3 years. So, I thought I would start a thread that addresses the things that will probably "never" happen to us while owning, operating, living in or just working on our RV's.

I'll go first: I'm pretty sure that we will never be crushed by a Commercial Jet Liner as it crashes onto the highway at the exact spot we are driving 65 MPH.

"...things that will probably "never" happen to us while owning, operating, living in or just working on our RV's." My thought is you'll never hear from the more superstitous of us,not wanting to tempt fate(knock on wood)(salt over left shoulder)(got to find my horseshoe)

FR purchases Shop Vacs and gives them to each work station so the workers can clean up after their work is done.

Try Arizona. A few years ago I went for 3 months without a cloud in the sky. A month in this year and not a drop and none on the horizon.

Someone will offer me 10% more than I paid for mine, now that it is "broken in".

Thought my RV was a goner in the Camp Fire as the best evac was a bit irregular for a 2wd. But 11 days later returned to find everything intact. Lots didn't...
