Not a clue...

A neighbor was commenting on our "new to us" Sunline. He yakked away about all kinds of RV stuff, including his "stinky slinky" and "doughnut" which seemed somehow related, and curbing my desire for Krispy Kremes in the near future. I nodded and smiled, hoping he'd not ask about mine (assuming we have such things on the Sunline?) Tom's not home from work, and I assume he'll know, but I just thought I'd ask what the heck they are?

Ah yes, "RV speak" The "stinky slinky" is another name for the sewer hose that collapses like a slinky for storage. A "doughnut", in RV speak, is a tapered stiff rubber ring type thing that seals the 3 inch diameter hose into a larger drain opening at a campground.

As for the Krispy Kremes, I have to stay away from them because you can't eat just one.

Debbie,

Don't feel bad. The lingo is well....

On the side of your camper is a fresh water fill spout where you fill up the water in the on board tank. We had a member a wile ago have a leak in one. So then came the time to help them find a spare part.

You can find just about any RV camper part now a days on line, providing you know what they call it in the camper industry.

If you ever need a new fresh water spout use the words

"Gravity Water Dish"

I would of never even guessed close on that one....LOL The good thing we have enough members that someone knows...

Gravity Water Dish, Colonial White

They make all kinds, some with or without door covers etc.

And then there is the RV slag. Like the Stinky Slinky or the doughnut.

There are some even worse ones... For some reason the ones pertaining to the black holding tank area have the most slang....

If you have not yet seen the movie, RV with Robin Williams in it, it is for sure a hoot. A must see for any RV'er. We have a CD of it in the camper and when the weather turns rotten out we often times pull it out and every time break out laughing non stop on some of the spoofs they came up with.

Don't feel bad for asking. Just ask away! We all keep learning all the time.

John

Thanks for the info LOL

I'm sure I will learn a lot .. including the "black humor" (pun intended)

I have to admit, reading threads, I see where So and So came over to help with a problem with the black tank. Now THAT's being a good neighbor !!

I must get the Robin Williams movie for Tom's birthday !!

Thanks again.

Wow, can't believe it was 2006.

I recently heard of a new RV museum that opened up in Texas. It's quite large and kinda tied into an RV dealer. The article said that the owner searched for like 3-4 years for the Flxible bus (driven by Jeff Bridges) that was used in the movie and he finally found it in California somewhere. It is now in the museum.

RV Museum Opens in Texas, Houses Iconic RVs


January 23, 2012 by RV Business

The Jack Sisemore Traveland RV Museum in Amarillo, Texas, recently opened to the public and has already attracted more than 400 visitors, according to a report in the Amarillo Globe News.
Traveland’s RV museum encompasses up to 7,000 square feet and is home to dozens of iconic RVs, including a 1936 Alma, a 1937 Elkhart Traveler and a 1953 Fleetwood.
“We’ve been building a museum for about 25 years and we have RVs from every decade up through the ’70s to show the progression of the RV industry,” Sisemore said. “I wanted to have something that was free, that people could come to from anywhere in the United States.”
Visit Jack Sisemore Traveland RV Museumfor a preview. Traveland store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Gary and Jon,

Neat place. Thanks for passing it along. It for sure is on the list to see when we ever make it down that way.

We have been to the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart and it is neat walking down memory lane. All though the cost is a little different then the Jack Sisemore one.

Thanks

John

JohnB, have you ever used half.com ? It is now owned by Ebay. Things like books/dvd's are for sale, not auction. I got the movie for 75 cents and $3 media mail shipping!

Half.com: RV (DVD, 2006, Full Frame): Robin Williams: Movies

Debbie,

No I did know of them. Only $3.75??? WOW. Good tip. Thanks. They beat out Amazon.

I see they have books too. My wife is a book worm, goes through 1 every week or so. I'll have her search it over too. The kids and I bought her a Kindle for Christmas so now she is into the electronic search and find. She was a weekly library go'er and now goes on line to download them. Just the local library does not have as much in the Kindle format just yet as they do in paper back. I'm sure that will grow over time.

The write up Half.com has on the movie is the best I have seen when hunting around yesterday for it.

Thanks again for the tip. For sure will check it out.

John

Funny story. I knew a very young guy in advertising who made a fortune devising clever ways to advertise. In Grand Central Station there are apparently hundreds of urinals in the men's rooms (no surprise). So, knowing you don't really have much to do when um.. making use of the urinal, he sold ads to put on the wall at eye height.. one was for half.com which was new then. It said "Don't pi$$ your money away, buy from half.com". The young execs would check it out when back at the office and before long half.com was flying high and eventually bought out for a nice amount by giant Ebay.

I've used half.com many times for buying books. I don't think I've ever had any bad experiences, but a few did take a long time to ship the books, which was a problem when the semester was starting and I needed the book. I do use judgement though and only buy from people that sound somewhat reputable. Basically, I look at their feedback and if it's like under 90%, I usually choose a slightly more expensive alternative, which in used textbooks is often just pennies.

Many of the companies that sell books on half.com also sell on Amazon. Sometimes I find the prices are slightly different between the two sites though.

Make sure to look at the total prices from both too. Amazon's standard shipping rate I believe is $3.49, where half.com is 3.99, so if the price is just a few cents more on Amazon, it still may be the better deal.

My grandma has a Nook from Barnes & Noble. Her local library has a thing where she can go every Friday to download a free book. She's been doing that and seems to have plenty to read for her anyway.
