I'm forever forgetting to put the big foldout hand rail in its travel position.
I forgot one time as we were going out our drive.
We have an electric gate,I did look in the mirror in time to see the hand rail before I caught it on the gate post but I had to stop and you only have about 20 seconds before the gate closes.
It didn't do any damage to the trailer but it does blow the fuse on the gate.
I had to disconnect the opener from gate,pull the trailer out and go back to the house to get a replacement fuse delaying our departure for a bit.
I put the DW in charge of checking the hand rail now.

OK, first trip in new TT.

Never owned one before.

Had checklists from a few sources.

Delegated outside to me, and inside to DW.

With much enthusiasm I ticked off my items in record speed.

Impatiently asked DW to get a move on, the hwy. beckoned.

She finally emerged, and put her foot on the step I had stowed, as per checklist; 15 mins. earlier.

That was not my biggest mistake.

Laughing, was however.

Quiet drive that day.

I literally laughed out loud. Because I've had that long quiet drive before too!
I hope she was okay!

I just did an easy one. Third outing with the new TT. I had developed a nice checklist for setting up where each of my two sons, DW, and I each had a task. Everything went great until my youngest son came up and said he could not finish his tasks - he could not put the awning out.

Being my normal self, I did not listen to him, observed acidly that at thirteen years old it was high time he remembered the tasks that I had taught him, and that it was simplicity itself to push the button for the power awning. As I was mouthing off and walking to the door of the trailer, my younger son pointed out the tree trunk that prevented the awning from coming out.

After my meal of crow and yet another apology to a son for being impatient with him, the checklist was revised so that checking clearances for the slide AND the awning is now way up at the top of the list.

HAHAHA!! Nah! Though I don't know, it might be easier with her! My DW sure knows how to make the quiet so thick, I need my pocket knife to carve out a line of sight through the windshield!

DW's pride was hurt. She was OK.

June 2014. 7 night camping trip to Ludington State park. Four women and 2 men in the TT and all of them using the toilet (pee only...house rules!). So about 4 night in the black tank is showing full already so it's time to dump.

A year or two ago Ludington SP installed satellite dump stations at one bathroom facility in each camping loop...a real nice convenience as the main dump station is about a mile away.

I break out the tote tank and get the tank hose out from the little compartment at the tail end of the trailer and hook up both ends and proceed to dump the peewater. The outlet from the trailer is lower than the height of the tote tank so I have to milk the hose in order to get things flowing. As I'm doing this, there is a section of sewer hose that is all stiff and won't bend so I valve off the black tank and begin the unpleasant task of having a look-see.

I discovered that I had stored my toilet flushing wand inside the hose, completely forgot about it, and gave it a good drenching with peewater!! Needless to say, when I got home I took the wand out and stored it in my shop as I only use it at home anyway.
