My most embarrassing moment was last year, heading to Yuma AZ. I arrived at Mesquite NV and decided to use the campground at the old Oasis Casino. I was told to find an empty space and pull in. The roads are narrow and while driving down the road I attempted to turn left at the intersection and in doing so My 5th wheel struck a cement light standard on my living room slide which cost me or my insurance company 4600 bucks. No excuse, my fault, and a dumb move!!

With our previous fifth wheel, I attempted to breakdown our campsite during a heavy rainstorm. The rig had manual rear stabilizers; typically I crank these up rather early in my breakdown process. With the size of the puddles that formed around these things, I planned on putting it off until the end. Well I forgot to raise them... Any idea how tough it is to attach the kingpin and pull away with those things diggin in??? Did not make it too far...

While travelling in a Silver Eagle playing music in my youth, our band leader saw a cleanout on the side of a building we were playing in that night. We were early for setup, so he thought he'd empty the black tank before anyone knew we were there. In his haste....the connection didn't fit properly and blew the good stuff all over his beautiful new leather coat!

MY bonehead moments? I can't remember any! (If you believe that, I've got some ocean-front property in AZ I'd like to sell you)

Bonehead vs Embarrassing... Why combine the two threads? I thought there was a difference... I do plenty of stupid things that I am not embarrassed about

The first time we took our new TT out, I learned really fast to Chock the wheels before you unhook it from the TW, it is imposable to keep it from rolling down hill, I am very thankful for large rocks.

Okay, I confess. I drained my tanks, and then put the cap back on.
Put about 4 gallons of water and treatment in the black tank.

Then realized that I hadn't closed the black tank valve. :lightning:

It's closed now, but I still have to remove the cap and try not to have an "RV" moment.
