But... what works on 12vDC or 120vAC, whether on battery, generator, or power cord is a complete mystery to her.



OMG, nail on head, as it were !! That 12v/120 thing has her brain buckeled. One great thing about mine, she drives the rig 1/2 the time. If I only hadn't showed her the air horn button !!!!!!!!! Robbie


I'm jealous... I want the air horn, and I also want her to drive.

Believe me, it cost me a whole lot more money to trade my old wife in on my new wife, than it did when I traded the Discovery for the Contessa. And it wasn't even my idea!

Now now don't get us started.
After 45 years we both have stories to tell.
When gasoline went up and we had to wait in line. My wife skipped the line and filled up with diesel because it was cheaper and no line.
She did get it home and we heard her coming several blocks away.
Bang bang bang and clouds of smoke.
Since diesel has a unique smell I knew what had happened before she explained that she saved us money and time by skipping the line and that the fuel was cheaper.
Eventually I used the diesel in a sailboat diesel engine so no harm. The gasoline motor recovered just fine after I changed the oil and re-filled with gasoline.
She has stories about me too but we won't go there today...............
