Mine happed on our 4th or 5th time out in the new TT. I had backed onto the leveling blocks at a site with a small downhill slope and started to level with the jack. I had the TT unchained from the TV. As I raised the TT to level it, it slid back about 8 inches, pushing the plastic chock blocks in the gravel. The jack foot dropped off the 5" retaining block I use and hit the ground with a nice thud...luckily there was no damage but I had to change my shorts. I'm going to invest in some x-chocks in the spring.

Lent my truck to someone to use when I had a 2000 designer fith wheel and a slide in hitch. We went out camping the next time and I failed to see the locking pins were not in place on the hitch we made it a block and a half intel the hitch slipped back and ruined the tail gate. Always double check all hitch hardware.

Many years ago while in Rome NY at a KOA campground i was setting up the tent on the tent site and hammered the tent peg into the water line that ran through the middle on the tent site. what a nice stream of water shooting from the ground into the air. whom ever thought of putting a water line through the middle of a tent site, probably someone that did not tent camp.

My father-in-law was hooking up at a CG and didn't realize that the pvc water supply wasn't strapped to the rebar behind it. He twisted a little too hard on the hose and Ka-Pow!! It blew the hat off his head and shot water 20 feet into the air. Panicked, he grabbed a 5-gallon bucket to cover the pipe. He dropped it on and let go - BOOM! The bucket went flying over the roof of his trailer. He's soaking wet now, ran for it, grabbed the bucket and a large rock. Covered the pvc pipe and plopped the rock on top of the bucket. Took the CG staff about 10 minutes to shut the water off and by then everything was soaked!

First trip in our 2011 Eagle 365BHS I mistakenly hooked the fresh water hose to the black tank flush out. Spent probably 15-20 minutes setting everything up on the outside when the wife, who was arranging things inside asked when I was going to hook the water up. Could hear water running but for the life of me could not figure out why nothing was coming out of the faucets. Another 5-10 minutes goes by when I hear the toilet gurgling. Like an idiot, I depress the foot flush, and as you might have figured, a volcano like gusher erupts from the toilet. Completely soaked me, the ceiling, floor and pretty much the entire bathroom. Fortunately, we had not yet used it, and still to this day we get a good chuckle every time it gets brought up.
