So hereís my thought; if you close your slideouts before you get on the highway you donít need the reflective tape on the slideouts.

Or the time you are in a campground that your site is just a wider spot in the campground roadway than an actual pull-thru!

That's one way to avoid flat spots.

There were two discussions that I wondered about, one involving the afore mentioned animal as a pet and an educational post re: the wave of the future (maybe) - electric motors in large vehicles.

Since it was not stated, I wondered which was moved for further debate.

Heavy discussion of both have ceased.

We carry a collapsible traffic cone for slide/steps in a parking area.

I had them on my driver side slide out (and across the bumper) in my old camper.

I stayed at a friend's house often and parked in the street in front of his house.
It was not a throughfare (a cul-de-sac), but I worried about someone coming home late at night and not seeing the camper until it was too late to stop.

After he moved, I saw no reason to remove the reflective stickers.

The new camper most likely will not be so decorated.

My Silverback came with two reflectors on the rear bumper although at some point one of them vanished. I guess it disappeared during one of the many gully-washing rainstorms we camped in over the years.

Watching the neighbors pack up, he put on leather work gloves to disconnect his sewer hose. Ok. Then he used the same gloves to disconnect his city water from the camper. Well, I wouldn't do that, but whatever... THEN he took the free end of the fresh water hose, stuffed it about 18" into his sewer hose and flushed it for while. Put everything away, took off the work gloves, and he was done. Hands were nice and clean.

Many people do exactly like you posted, then with the same Gloved Hands touch the water hydrants and power centers, before storing the Gloves with the Freshwater hoses! Yuck! And people wonder why I shy away from Carry In Dinners! Youroo! !
