On the old trailer while hooking up, lowered it on the the ball, had to put it in to gear to clunk forward before the latch would close, attached the chains/tow cable, pulled the chocks, and started to drive off. Was wondering why it was taking more gas to pull than usual - figure I should go look. The jack wasn't all the way up and left a 2" trench from my parking spot to where I stopped to look! Thankfully it was a pretty new storage site at the time so the gravel wasn't too packed down! Jack was fine thankfully as well - didn't bend it somehow.

LOL, just happened to me a few days after getting our 2014 264BH.. Put a tv mount in the bedroom area up in the corner, attached tv and was super proud of myself until the wife showed me where the screw bolt on the lower half of the tv mount was all the way through the wall into and sticking out about 4 inches on the other side above the couch.

Lots of good stories to learn from. My latest "d'oh" moment was connecting the TV plug around the side resulting in a severely pinched cable from a hard left turn. Luckily nothing shorted out and everything still works. going to be replacing that cable for good measure.

Backed into camping spot with electrical post 24" from the side of the 5er. Unhooked the TV and started to put out the 36" slide...Ruh, Roh! Had to hook up again and re-spot the RV a little further away from the post. From that mistake I now ALWAYS take a tape measure with me when spotting the RV and before unhooking. It's all a learning curve. Hopefully not a steep one.
