Situations with our then new 2005 single axle hybrid:
- First trip out, had to cross several "texas gates" to get to the campground, decided to go over very slowly. Big mistake as the camper bounced across, the contents of the cupboards including our glass dished and cups, and most of the contents of the fridge ended up on the floor. We now eat from plastic, and don't slow down as much for the texas gates.
- a few trips later, camping in the mountains on September long weekend. Night 1, outside temperature -1C and ran out of propane at 2am - with no furnace it was pretty cold by morning. Night 2 (with full propane tank), CO2 alarm squeeling at 2am, battery dead and therefore no furnace - pretty cold by morining. Since then I upgraded to 2x6 volt batteries and make sure to check the propane tanks.
- Another trip, storm warnings for the area, but when went to bed at 1:00am, the sky was clear, no wind and no indication of any storm, but moved lawn chairs, etc under the awning just in case. By 2:00am, I wake up to strong wind and pouring rain, and the sound of the awning banging and crashing. Despite my best effort to hold the awning down, the wind won and ripped the awning fabric in half. Luckily, no damage to the arms or roll, had the fabric replaced for $500.
- Unhooked camper at storage site, did not chock the wheels. Trailer rolled backwards, tongue jack fell off the wood block, and the trailerlass than an inch away from crashing through the metal fence of the storage site. Lesson learned - always chock the wheels before disconnecting.
Many more events (unfortunately), but nothing damaged other than my pride
