Keep a lid on it
“Keep the toilet lid closed to prevent foreign objects from falling into the toilet. It is a major job to retrieve anything from the holding tank.” From “Motorhomes Made Easy”
Where have you been all my life?
With electricity expert and veteran RVer Mike Sokol
I used to drag out a bottle of Windex and a roll of paper towels to clean the inside of my windshield periodically, but unless I was home to think about and do the task right then, chances are I would forget about it until the next time I had to drive at night. My wife just gave me a pack of Windex Wipes for my truck, and now I can clean up the inside of my windshield any time it gets a film of streaky dust. Works great and it’s always at the ready. You can buy them here.

Answer to today’s brain teaser: A marshmallow
LEAVE HERE WITH A LAUGH
A woman was taking an afternoon nap. When she woke up, she told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace just like the one I’ve always wanted. What do you think it means?” “You’ll know tonight,” he said with a wink. That evening, the man came home with a beautifully wrapped package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it to find a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”
