I have injured my liver a sip at a time on numerous occasions. It's the darnedest thing. Barley pop, fermented corn and cane sugar, just can't help it.

Sometimes I run my head and knees into hard inanimate objects for no appearant reason.

Lose the 2nd and the rest will follow.

Nuisance, the pain I can cope with. The risk of damaging the RV, priceless!

f5moab, the way my head was pounding afterwards it could well have been a fuse😄

Or, I just took pipe insulation. It seems the corners were the only thing that ever caught me. Ironically, once they were installed- I haven't hit them.
You're looking at it all wrong. You are curing the symptom. Wear a helmet. Good everywhere.

DH came down with a case of pink eye as we were leaving Disney. I ended up driving the entire 13 hr ride home that day with no relief driver. Talk about one tired puppy. My worst injury was my pride when I first bought the tt and had to let the campground host back it in to the site for me on my first trip out.

My only other camping ailment hits me every time we pull into a campground. It's a disease called laziness. The only cure for it is a long weekend of lounging in a zero gravity recliner with occasional nocturnal sipping on a tasty adult beverage.

I put a lump on my forehead running into a slide while looking at RV's on a dealer's lot. Salesman was speechless for a moment.

Note to some of the foamy things to put on the corners. That's twice this season!

I have hit the same corner multiple times on my 38FL...... cut a couple of 6" strips of red 1" streamer and taped them to the corners. They wave around with the slightest breeze and seem to have done the trick

I've had my back go out multiple times either removing or replacing
my WD hitch head or lifting old fashioned heavy bicycles in/out of
the bed of the truck....
It sucks to have your back acting up just when the camping trip is
getting good

Backing out of the cargo area of the Yukon, missed the step and slid my shin down the hitch sway control mount point, taking skin off.
Kids thought it was neat that I was bleeding so much (darn daily baby aspirin).

And KyDan I had my back go last time I stayed at a hotel with a mattress that was too firm. I wonder if you have thought about a memory foam topper. We are getting one for the trailer for both of our backs.
