Wheel chock expiration date!

I've got a pair of those yellow plastic wheel chocks that were a parting gift from the previous owner of my TT. This morning I was moving them around and just happened to take a closer look at them to find the following molded into the side of the block, "Do not use after 06/2011."

Go figure. The plastic probably decomposes when exposed to UV light for extended periods of time (continuous outdoor use).

Mine expired when I ran over them. Lesson learned the hard way.

This reminds me of a trick I pulled at a campground. I very careful made a ramp of the stacks to where it was six high on both sides front using both wood and extra blocks. I also made sure the RV would not move while I did it. I then remove the ramp so that the front of the RV was sitting on six high stack of the blocks, nothing else. Got a few strange looks. Did not leave it to long.

Mine expire this year and only use them at home now. I noticed this last year when moving stuff from one camper to the other. I now own a set of these rubber ones. Very well made and no expiration date.

That is like expiration date on kids car seats. Great marketing idea to increase sales it's not like milk that will start to stink..

I'm surprised auto manufacturers don't put expiration dates on cars...they could sell a whole lot more to the "outdated and throw it away" folks!!
