Bus Terminology...

In the last few weeks, I have run across a number of bus related terms used for various stuff in and around the bus. Some real, some very funny.

I was wondering if we could all chime in here and create a running log on these.

A few come to mind like...

PUMPKIN
FLASHER FLUID - [love that one BK]
BASEMENT
PUSHER
CHROME MAY GLOW BUT IT WON'T MAKE YOU GO
SPLIT AIR
ETC...

If you happen to know the origin of the term or saying, post that here tooooo.

I never used that term before I go into buses. Then again, I never had a reason to Smiley

Ed,
I think it's, "Sticks and Staples",
Unless your working on the rental campers like I am. Then "Stable" is appropriate.
