A: This is our bed in camp, still need some improvement of course.
B: When it really rips it down, this is like a mud slide, you see.
others: Yeah.


Bingung....
Why I cannot find any meaning for "rip down" or "rips" ya?

Ada pencerahan?

Explanation:
Maybe it was meant to read “When it really rips down...” where “it” refers to the rain so that the sentence would mean Kalau hujannya benar-benar lebat, ...

Notes to answerer
Asker: I was guessing the "it" refers to rain, but then I read some agro-cultural website there's this "ripping" word, which mean something to do with digging the soil, so that's why I got a second thought. But I think the ripping is just another term for different case then. Thanks for the favorable light.

Asker: I am thinking rips down meaning would be : something that move down rapidly or heavily?
