First trip discovery

While packing up, dumped the tanks, then tried to collapse the Rhino dump hose. Could only get a short section pushed together. After struggling for a while the DW who has excellent hearing came up and said she heard air hissing from somewhere. Duhhh. Took an end cap off and it pushed right together. Double duhhh!! Only telling this embarrasing tale to help others.

I think everyone has had a "duh" situation at some point. You can't go thru life without doing something that doesn't look pretty stupid in hind sight!!

I tested that seal once from both ends then I looked around to make sure the other campers weren't looking.
