How many of you are old enough to remember “curb feelers”? I sure am, even had them on my first car, a 1955 DeSoto. They sure did remind you when you got near the curb. I don’t remember if they came on new cars or if you had to add them after you had the vehicle. Dang, just thinking about that old car brings back a lot of memories as does thinking about the second vehicle I had, a ’57 Chevy convertible.
OK, back on the subject, curb feelers. I woke up this morning thinking about a way to install something like curb feelers on that motor- home I just bought. You know, a few sticking out in vulnerable places, like the bottom left and right rear, the mid height left and right rear, the top left and right rear, the mid section left and right and top and bottom, the front left and right and top and bottom, and a few scattered over the air conditioners and the front and rear of the roof. Phew!!! Glad I got through all that, did you? If I did attach “curb feelers” in all the vulnerable and hard to see places, it would look like a porcupine for sure, but I bet I wouldn’t squash into another tree.
OK, I got to get back on that paying (hopefully paying) job so I can start learning the important things I need to know to drive that new house around a bit. Called last week to make an appointment at the local RV place to get the oil and filters changed. I guess they don’t get diesels in much cause they said they had a guy that comes in an does it and they have called a couple of times wanting model numbers and other information so they can order the filters, oil, etc. They have not as yet called and given me a date that they can do it. Guess I should have planned to take it on down toward Houston to a dealer that handles Newmars like mine.
Hey, you all have a great day now, you hear?
