    Sorry Kay, I just saw this.

    Things I would like to see from Factory

    Where would you suggest they place them? All of mine are easily within arms reach. What year, make and model motorhome do you have?

    If you're interested in seeing the Whooping Cranes, they were almost extinct just a few years ago, dive out to Goose Island State Park and instead of turning right to the park turn left. towards the the Big Oak Tree. When you get to12th St, turn right. At the Oak Tree, on the right there is a large field. Drive to the end, turn right and keep looking to the right in the field. Often times the Whoopers are in this area. Turn right on 11th and there is a home on the right with a large corn feeder, there may be Whooping Cranes and Sandhill Cranes in there waiting for feeding time. The cranes stand 5 ft tall and are white. The Sandhills are much shorter and will appear to be gray.

    Proof motorhomes don't float.

    You either didn't bother to read the article or you don't know where Lake Sam Rayburn is. The Harris county sheriff's dept or Houston fire department would not be involved. The link I provided is KHOU-TV, channel 11 in Houston. It was covered by Beaumont, Tyler and other tv outlets. Various print news sources also reported it. The owner is a fairly well known bass tournament fisherman. Google "motorhome sinks in Lake Sam Rayburn". Can you point out where the statement about stunt dogs was used, its not on the link I provided that I can find.

    Refrigerator cooling solution "gelled"

    How warm is it inside the rv? I don't believe an absorption type refer will work in freezing temps or at least not effectively. If the temp is -14 and the rv is outside, I can't imagine the inside is much about freezing, if that.

    That door latch is prone to failures at the most inopportune times. If it fails and your inside and have the tools inside you can easily remove the latch and open the door. This is the reason I always leave one window unlocked so if needed, I or someone can climb inside to open the door. I will never disclose which drivers window I leave unlocked either.

    Wayne needs to recommend so places to eat back on the mainland. He didn't get the nickname Mister Round for nothing.

    Bevo vs. Uga

    What they need to ban is the stupid handlers that bring the live mascots face to face. One mascot comes to mind, the University of Houstons cougar, Shasta. Bring Bevo face to face with a live cougar and see who backs down. Its just hard to cure stupid.

    Glue "Elevator" Bolt to Plastic Name Plate

    This is what we used when double sided tape wouldn't work. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Plastic-and-Emblem-Adhesive/?N=5002385+3293082148&rt=rud

    Roland, I'm assuming you will take the free Bolivar Ferry across to Galveston and not come all the way in to Houston. Take the Hwy 124 exit at Winnie.

    Glue "Elevator" Bolt to Plastic Name Plate

    That is the product we used to replace emblems and its the product the OEM emblems come with, Joe.

    Glue "Elevator" Bolt to Plastic Name Plate

    Have you considered using double sided tape and eliminating the bolts?
