Hail and lightning

Just came across a couple of interesting items that I would like to share, the first may be found on Amazon. However if you purchase go to the company website, it is about 50 buck cheaper:

1. New way to protect your TV from hail damage. If I actually do purchase this item I will report back...

Patented HAIL PROTECTOR Car Cover System + Bonus $40 Amazon Gift Card (ANY SIZE HAIL, ENTIRE VEHICLE, REMOTE CONTROLLED, FREE MOBILE APP) for Minivans, Trucks and SUVs, 198" to 230" in length (6 Sizes)

2. Just an FYI (I did not do a search):

Mark Polk of RVeducation101.com interviews RV electricity expert Mike Sokol about what an RVer should do during an electrical storm.

Mike wishes to add this: "A full aluminum-skinned trailer is the safest in a storm, but a fiberglass-skin trailer offers much less protection. If it has metal framing on 16-inch centers, you're probably still reasonably safe from lightning. However, an RV built with fiberglass over a wood frame or a total ribbed fiberglass frame will offer ZERO protection from a lightning strike."
