Many years ago We were in Door County, Wi, the wife was driving She pulled over in a small town to go into an antique shop.
I noticed that next door was a hardware store. Imp0rttant info.
Well, the wife came out, I had stayed in the truck. She started the truck, me being co-pilot, one on my jobs is to check for over hanging branches. I was to busy eating snacks. She pulled out and we we went 2" and the BRANCH got us. A 12" gash through the skin. DRAT!!!!!!. At the front of the cabover, just back from the nose.
Remember the hardware store, they had duct tape, only BROWN, on white TC. Good thing the son-in-law does body work. And a perfect match on the older paint.
Now I don't eat snacks when we are getting under way.

The umbilical cord the dealer gave me is long enough to reach the bumper. I don't need one that long as I have a jack in the bed towards the front.

Not paying attention I once plugged in the cord and lowered the camper on it.

I now have the cord tied/coiled it into a loop of sorts and when I'm backed under the camper 3/4 of the way, I stop and plug both ends of the cord in. (the cord is now only 3-4' long now)

Then there was the time that I forgot to unplug the cord after lifting the camper but that is another story... [emoticon]

Outdoor speakers "WILL" eventually leak..guarantee it hands down. It then will cause delam...ditch this very damning option and find a way to seal it up...It was a really dumb idea. You want sound outside?? Buy a Bluetooth Bose.
