In some circles, clothes falling off a hanger, is a warning of a Tsunami or an earthquake below 5.0

If the hanger falls with the clothes, then the earthquake is a definite 5.0 plus.

If two or more hangers with clothes falls off, then you need to have the shell checked by an authorized dealer, for shrinkage, because you were going way too fast.

It's the expansion and contraction of the shell, associated with speed, that spits the hanger off the rod.

Happens every time.

Talking Be careful who you let in your closet

I think I've found the culprit in my Airstream. Faye was going through my airstream at a recent rally trailer open house, and look what happened!

YIKES.................

Please watch Faye carefully.

If she got in your tow vehicle, she could make all 9 spark plugs fall out of the automatic transmission.

Rumor has it, however, that if the running gear was properly balanced, that Faye would have to resort to overcharging the batteries, since she would install a positive power factor in the tow vehicle, which in turn makes the gasoline tank overflow every time you ran the engine.

Gasoline companies would have a fit if they had any idea that Faye was resorting to such high handed tactics, that even our Democrats had a problem misunderstanding, as well.

However, we understand that our Kallyfornia governor is trying to get Faye to run our public utilities, where we could sell all of our excess energy, to other states, since she created, her mysterious "POSITIVE" power factor consuming systems.

Our power lines are absolutely "smoking" since we have been putting more electricity back into the power grids, than we are consuming.

Furthermore, we hear someone is trying to modify "FAYES" system, and make it apply to money.

WOW, just think of it's effect. The more money you spend, the bigger your bank account gets.

Bank of America, how in the world are you going to handle this problem?

I was reading the forums looking for things that would work for me, when I found this. It pays to be a packrat! I had a whole box of these in my basement, they were in my house when I bought it! Also along the packrat line I found two "new" plastic flamingos still in the package from a charity event several years ago!

Hangers

I'll go with Dwight on this one- I turned my hangers around-Problem solved. I read this correction here or another site. hangers or clothes jumping off the rod happened day one on our new in 2004 trailer. Being new to trailering I just thougt it normal but annoying. We've been about 20,000-25000 miles towing without abnormal tire wear . Darrell

In going to new tires, Centramatic balancers and carefully balanced wheel/tires prior to installation plus new shocks, one of the things I noticed was that the clothes hangers no longer came off the bathroom closet rods. Plus, items forgotten a couple of times hadn't moved or spilled. I took that as a sign that the time and effort was worth it. The cat seemed less stressed, too.

The first trip out we found a half-full cup of tea still sitting on a rimmed-shelf in the bedroom after 500 miles.

A nice change for a leaf-suspension, tandem axle trailer. I'd have thought that an A/S with independent suspension was "immune" to this.

The backward hanger thing works, even with the cheapo hangers from the cleaners.

See - that's the problem! Empty hangers.

If you simply stuff so many @#$#% pieces of clothing into the wardrobe for a 2 day camping trip to outfit an army, then they're secure! In fact, they don't even require a rod to stay up in the first place!

I got lucky.....my old Airstream came with the original hangers that have a different kind of mechanism that holds them to the rod. They snap off of the rod easily and hang back up easily. Nothing has ever fallen off.

Lots of things fell out of cabinets etc....until I got the new axle. No more problems after that.
