Default dumb questions

It is said there are no dumb questions only dumb answers.

Here is a question I read on a caravan forum, I beg to differ and say there are dumb questions

"porch awnings what size groundsheet do I need "

A porch awning is roughly half the length, could be a bit less, of the caravan body but do vary in width as does a caravan vary in length.

The problem with reading a question when knowledgeable , is just that. You have knowledge that the person asking does not, but is seeking reassurance. I would try to imagine what they are asking. Eg do they actually mean a ground sheet or some other accessory associated with an awning that they have misnamed, or perhaps they mean what thickness of ground sheet? Etc.

I still say, the only dumb question is the one not asked.

it was the bit about size I thought dumb. Its like asking what size tyre do I need for my car? There is just not enough information to answer the question.
