That just means the numbers on the cake were a little off!

FWIW, the hub cap pictured is a CR and was at the correct level in the picture. The hub oil should be a hypoid 80-90w or full synthetic 50W. The drawback of using grease is a lack of replacement lube (to the rollers of the bearing) when cold and you first get rolling. Not that you will be driving around in -40 degrees so probably not applicable in your situation.

I usually hang a long(ish) brightly coloured rag from cranium crushers. Most likely place my eyes are, searching the ground for spare change to buy my next bus part with.

Sean -

I was the first one to register when the site went live this year!

Tortoise, Pat, Lucy, Curly and I will be slowly working our way to Arcadia after Van's Dam Rally at Lake Mead in Nov.  Probably stop at my son's in Colorado Springs and Roadrunner Tex's in Palestine, TX along the way.

How about you and the Turtlettes??

Where I used to work (many years ago) there was a very low opening into a storage area, so we nailed up a piece of Cheng Shin 20 x 2.125" BMX tire at forehead height to prevent excessive brain damage.   Whenever we had a new employee, the joke was how long it would take until we heard the all too familiar sound of cranium against immovable object, often accompanied with many non-biblical utterances, then see our newbie staggering back with "521.2 x 02 nihS gnehC imprinted large on his forehead and a glazed look in his eyes.   The employees who kept doing it several times often were the ones later promoted to be managers  -  who says stupidity isn't rewarded?

BCO.  I'm WAY ahead of you on this one though you had me in stitches just reading your thread.  I've been using the pool noodles on the slide out on my bus to keep the unwary safe as they "admire" my work.

I just wish I'd figured the noodles out before I came up under the slide out when it was in the "parked" position.  I was working on the floor inside the bus when the house phone rang and I jumped up to answer it. Nicked my kidney and got a bunch of stitches for a telephone sales scam!!!!  Got the scar to prove it!


If you are the queasy type, don't look at the next pic.  Jack

Foam hat clashes  with my tin foil, nice try though Lin. Aren't you glad the tow hitch and mirrors are not mounted on the same end?

Tried finding a used tire around but couldnt get anyone to come off of one for less than $900.00.... So after 29 hours of fighting AAA we were finally able to get out of there and have the coach towed the 139 miles back to home base. We had to have a guy come take one of the front tires off and put on the rear and the old almost original spare put up front so the coach could be put on a stinger. Now is the fun part of tracking down 6 new tires and saving up to get them and put them on. Lesson learned for sure! Thank you all for the advice. We are home safe now with a ton of work to do.

Instead of putting the pool noodles on the mirrors, what not just wear them on your head.  That way it can protect you from mirrors, yard rakes, and whatever the kids are throwing at you.  Hey, what about a big, foam cowboy hat?
