I'm about 4000 miles into my regular 7000 mile summer, and a serious problem has surfaced with my 04 33V Winnebago(WH).. The Ice Maker dispenses cubes, the long radius of which, exactly matches the inside radius of the cup I use to drink Tea, Soda, and occasionally something a little stonger.. These similar radii, cause an "ice dam" (no pun intended) at the rim and because of that, this old man occasionally dribbles liquid down onto my shirt.. In addition to that.. well, there is no "addition"... NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER, in spite of some real "hammering" my way over some pretty hot,lengthy, Rocky Mountain, and Central Arizona ups and downs..

Well, gotta go change my shirt...rgr...

Wow . That's one of those problems that can really spoil an otherwise great vacation .

Have you thought of using a sippy cup?

Seriously, though. Good to hear that the mechanicals are holding up well and you are traveling in some great country.

Now that does present one serious problem and by deffinition that is as we get into or third child hood then we regress into a younger by youger age. That's why I got a good supply of bibs, my daughter's original sippy cups ( I knew there was a reason not to get rid of her dishes and toys ), large handled spoons and forks, her big tri-cycle etc.....

We use these adult sippy cups from camelback, no need for bibs. They also work great on the bed side stand and prevent the cat from drinking our water.

Don't drink Jack but they haven't melted with gin, vodka or rum yet! Crown Royal works in them also.

How about Royal Salute? Then again there is something inherantly wrong with putting a 21 year old $125 a bottle scotch in a plastic sippy container.

I'll have mine straight, that is without ice please.
