Another safe tool is AAA Preferred card. Only had to use it once, save me $77. My TV lost it's fuel pump. Took two tow trucks, one for each. My cost? -0-

Hilltool ,its a 4000/3200 propane only generator. It's not all that big a all.
there's a pic of it in one of my posts. it weighs approx. 100 lbs. due to recovering from a left radical neck dissection oct 2016 to remove cancerous lymph nodes, I had base of tongue cancer, stage 4.
in 2015 a 7 level cervical laminectomy with fusion, from C3 to T2, 4 rods, 14 plates and 28 scews in my neck unrelated to the cancer, I was going quadrapalegic from my spine being pinched off.
then 2016 the 35 radiation treatments i finished those in feb 2016
I am still very ,very weak in my arms and shoulders now. I also have Meniere's disease and suffer from vertigo and dizziness and I am a btk left foot amputee. oh yeah i'm on crutches right now and have 2 stump operations coming up. one is june 12th. haven't been able but to spend 1 or 2 hours a day at the camper working.
I can barely lift and walk with 40 lb. right now. LOL that's the reason I will have to get a winch or boat crank or something oh my bad again, i though you wanted to know why i needed the winch or something, yeah like jack said, its propane only. i get carried away and write books! sorry LOL thanks guys

Gorilla tape works. Expensive, but strong! But I always keep good electrical tape handy. I my biker days, I found it worked great as a tourniquet as well as medical and other handy uses.

Default Yep,Gorilla tape works good!!

DH used gorilla tape to secure the bundle of wires in the RV BR. The cloth around it was falling down. Walmart sells a small roll of Gorilla tape. Perfect for the RV. Not to start a war...but if I was going to travel I would pick up a policy from Coach net.I have heard good and bad about Good Sam and AAA. In years past we have had AAA and had good local service. Now we have emergency road service with our travelers ins. Had to use it twice. The first time was a nightmare. Had to be stranded on a hot day for four hours. Second time DH left the truck lights on and they came within a half hour.

LOL Tree I used to use it at work when I cut myself and had no bandages, toilet paper and electrical tape. some of the girls that used to work for me would get cut ,I would tell them " oh just pack it with mud, and wrap some electrical tape around it, you'll be fine" most of them actually thought I was serious. lmao.

I find Gorilla tape to be pretty impressive stuff. Just installed new aluminum gunnels on an old canoe and the gorilla tape did a better job of holding them on ( 17 ft and not pre-bent) while I riveted them than screw clamps combined with ratcheted straps. Gooey stuff to get off, though.
