I think we might have to do this and get someone to videotape it!

I can suggest a couple of RV forums where it will be a big hit...

Can't believe someone hasn't already done it. Especially not in one of those silly RV movies.

We actually had a pair of these in our cruising days. Folks call'em marriage savers. Beats the h*ll out of shouting from the bow of the boat.

How about applying a crowbar to the dented-in panel? Then, throw some dirt on the scraped paint as camouflage, and party on.

Of course it is easy for me to say, as it's not my set of wheels.

Yeah, other than the other two dimensions, they are all the same.

The whole state is made of sand, but they put river gravel in the RV site.

I'm a big fan of the California Car Duster. I use it on my cars, bikes, and anything else that collects dust. Works amazingly well. It goes so fast that I can do the whole RV in 20 minutes, car in 5. Good on the dashboard, too.

Yes - but you were parked right next to salt water, so that can make a big difference! I was actually thinking of the salt exposure/corrosion.

Wait - you live in Tampa FL - never mind!
