Bus Terminology...

In the last few weeks, I have run across a number of bus related terms used for various stuff in and around the bus. Some real, some very funny.

I was wondering if we could all chime in here and create a running log on these.

A few come to mind like...

PUMPKIN
FLASHER FLUID - [love that one BK]
BASEMENT
PUSHER
CHROME MAY GLOW BUT IT WON'T MAKE YOU GO
SPLIT AIR
ETC...

If you happen to know the origin of the term or saying, post that here tooooo.

PUMPKIN - Either a rear differential or a Schneider truck

I never used that term before I go into buses. Then again, I never had a reason to :)

Ed,
I think it's, "Sticks and Staples",
Unless your working on the rental campers like I am. Then "Stable" is appropriate.
