I disagree. In my Interstate, the microwave/convection oven is a great place to store things that won't rattle (paper plates, placemats, etc.), but it's always a good idea to make a tag to hang from the oven door to show that there are things stored inside. Needn't be much of a tag; a brightly-colored Post-It Note works as well as anything.

We agree.....DW hangs a bright red dish towel over the closed oven door as a reminder.

I agree also....since the oven pilot is a manual igniter, if I don't see the stuff in the oven when I open the door to light the pilot, I have bigger issues.

Store breads in the microwave and a light aluminum small pressure cooker in the oven (with other small items). The pressure cooker is in a soft bag and the handle wedges between the top rack bars and rides well.

Becky was reading this thread this morning saying "you should add this... You should tell them about that...."

My response was "that's a great idea, stop lerking and join the forum and start posting". Oops.... Hope this doesn't get me in trouble or embarrassed by all of my oops moments.

We ALL want to read them! Not only because we want to poke fun at you— though it's human nature to laugh at another's misfortune— but also because we want to learn from your mistakes as well. If we're going to make mistakes, we want them to be new and original, not the same old mistakes that someone else made first.

When I was young, it was the 4th of July...was at a friends house...I lit the black Cat fire cracker with the wrong hand and threw the match instead. Had just enough time to move it away from my face before it went off in my other surprised hand.

broken windows

About 100 miles from home, we stopped at a rest area (we stop at almost every one we see) --I always take a quick walk around the rig, just in case..... first glance shows the prop arms for the large front side awning window dangling at odd angles, bare screen, top hinge with bits of glass all around the edge. Closer, just a few bits of glass on the sill --and the bottom window latches clearly in "unlatched" position. The whole window gone --all the glass blown away, no other damage to the AS --but sure upset about what must have happened out on the highway!
Remember to latch those windows!!
We broke the curved acrylic window shield on the same trip but we won't tell that story!

This incident is not in a RV but read and take warning.

GPS in the sun blew up (Pics)

GPD explodes and burns in hot sun. Unplug unnecessary equipment when it is not needed.

The day I bought my Airstream I towed it home to my gated community and the gate's security bar came down between the tow vehicle and the Airstream. There were signs clearly posted saying "one vehicle at a time" but I was so used to waving my security card at the sensor and breezing right through with my car that it never occurred to me that the stupid gate would count it as two vehicles. So I have dents on both sides, right where I see them in the side mirrors while I am on the road as a constant reminder of my stupidity.

So, the exact device that's designed to keep out anyone who'd deface your property... wound up being the only thing thus far to damage it. Bitter, bitter irony.

Thanks for the reminder to remember how long we are!

You didn't pay! You didn't PAY!

Long time ago, in a campground far, far, away...

We'd been pulling our tent trailer (do you guys call that a SOT?) and WELL after dark we finally found the State Park we'd been trying to get to so we could camp for the night. The sign at the entrance booth said, "Find an empty spot, the Ranger will come by to register you".

Okaaaaaay.... Looked all around for the guy, no camp host in those days. It's 9:30 and it's daaaawwwwrk! We finally give up and turn in.

We wanted to leave early the next morning, so we pack up, and go driving around, looking for the guy. Nothing.

Okay, we tried, so let's go... We're driving out the access road, and this little dinky pickup comes rolling up behind us with the roof light on... The guy's leaning out the window, hollering, "You didn't pay! You didn't PAY!!!"

No amount of explaining how many times and how far I went in looking for him would satisfy him...

So since then, every time we see one of those guys in a hurry, we turn to each other and chuckle, "You didn't pay - you didn't pay!!"
