what color to paint the bathroom, etc, but which anti-sway system is better (or God forbid, whether one is required in all cases) brings out the big guns. Of course, "guns in trailers" have their own vociferous adherents/detractors.

First, go to Lowe's and get copper ground rod and enough #10 AWG copper wire to reach into trailer.

Second, drive ground rod deep into ground and pour water around it.

Third, attach copper wire to rod and attach other end to anyplace on your body.

Fourth, to insure additional grounding, take off your shoe and place foot in toilet (if your cannot reach toilet, substitute sink or shower filled with waterówater will cool you down if excess heat is generated). You need not remove socks unless they are made of rubber.

Fifth, call 911 and your lawyer.

Sixth, install red and black leads of multitester, one in each ear. Press in as far as they will go to insure good contact. Turn on mutlitester and set on AC volts.

Seventh, place 2 small light bulbs, one in each nostril. This should provide extra light to read multitester.

Eighth, stick sandpapered tongue into wall socket.

This test, if properly done should tell you whether the circuit is hot. If this test makes you nervous, substitute raccoon for yourself.

22. Why do all trailers <25' suck?
23. Why do all trailers >25' suck?
24. Tell me how we feel about 25-footers again?
25. Old trailers are THE BEST!
26. NEW trailers rock!
27. The ONLY good trailer is mine!
If it's to be, it's up to me.

Don't forget trailers vs motorhomes.
Vinnie still thinks he's a trailer guy.

Cheers, Dan

They don't make Airstreams like they used to.
Back then they used to leak, and rot, and leak.
Now, they're worse.
But newer is better than older.
Now with wider aisles and new, improved design flaws! Enjoy your shattered dreams in the luxury that only Airstream* can provide.

What about packing all of your water out of fear of the campground system?

USA = towing a Bambi with a Kenworth as long as you have an AirSafe hitch.

Canada = towing a thirty four footer with a Geo metro as long as you have a HA HA or P P.

Mexico = don't even go there!
