if you don't mind me asking, why don't you intend to allow for #2 usage?
That is a good question.
I think it has something to do with my internal circuit that is programmed to say "It's brand new, keep it that way as long as you can". I understand the concept of "you bought it, now USE it like it was designed". But there is something in me that drives me to keep things as new as I can.... don't know. No pun intended, but I'm "anal retentive" that way.
When I was a Gun Chief on an M109 Self Propelled Howitzer in the Army, my men would constantly catch me "sweeping" the floor inside the gun with a little broom that I kept in there. I mean like, between fire missions!! They would poke fun at me because I was sweeping up dirt in something made for war.... but you know what? When the Captain, or the Sgt. Major came poking around the Battery Area, it was just known that Gun 5 would be in top shape. I didn't ever ask my men to take care of my OCD problems, I took care of them. Same with my engines in my cars.... you could EAT off of them.
So, there you have it. Best I can do... I suppose that there will be a day when someone goes #2 in my camper. After that initial moment, I will be okay with it from then on I'm sure.
