What did you do to your camper today?

Last week I bought four new tires and gave the China bombs to my neighbor for his flatbed hauler. Took the rig out camping at Wilson Fox park on Lake Granger. Nice quiet weekend.

I just hate posts with no supporting information.

Black Good.
No, Black Bad.
No, Black Good.

Why? What makes one bad and one good?
THAT is what makes knowledge.
Everything else is just noise.

Forever, as you will just leave it hanging or sitting somewhere and never use it.

I hope you did not hurt yourself while being entertained.

I would assume that would depend entirely on what is on them and how often you do it.

I suppose it'd also matter the time of day and the angle of the dangle it was being used....and the length of time exposed to the elements, the material type, and the date code, country of origin.

On the bright side it may fall off at home in your driveway; then again ...
Actually Back Zip Ties or as we call them in Canada To Wraps are UP rated. As long as you stick to T & B or Hellerman Tryon they both are and I have used them with success outside on feed lines and towers for 40 years.

Put the pink stuff in, the camping trip we had planned for next weekend in the SC mountains had to be postponed till next spring so in order to be sure a freezing night doesn't catch me off guard I decided to winterize. It is October and you never know.
