Ya, sort of sounds like a shotgun going off in the cab when that rear window breaks. The dogs are craping razor blades in the back seat and the Navigator is still waving at me to keep coming back! 2 hours of vacuuming and still found glass there years later. Duct tape and high tensile poly until it was replaced on the road.
Had an experience with the black tank flush while waiting to see how long it took to fill the already flushed and clean tank got talking to the neighbor. When I heard water dripping I panicked and shut off the water and opened the black water discharge, it shot out under pressure about 20'.
Sorry redhorse I had a good chuckle while reading it aloud to the Navigator. Like 3butchers said, we've all got a few. Thanks for sharing.

Just think about all the great campfire stories you're racking up!

With a 5.5ft bed on my Tundra, I had no choice than getting this monster. Pretty heavy and for a hefty bill of $3,200 installed.

Nonetheless, on our first trip last weekend you should have seen me making those unnecessary 90 degree turns at the campsite. Not because I really needed to but just wanted to show off that I could without any worries whatsoever.

I hooked the flush up by accident and then wondered why there was no water at the kitchen. I could hear water running but none where I expected it. That was the first time we had a trailer with a tank flusher. No geysers.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

Dang sorry to hear about all that. I pray that reading these stories will keep me from ever being the author of one... But I'm sure given time everyone has an oopps...
