We took delivery on our new TT in April (Some snow in Minnesota). Our PDI went great. We video-taped it on our camcorder and we wrote notes on a note pad.
Our first camping trip with our first TT took place in Duluth, MN. It is a 2 hour drive from our house in Minneapolis.
We made the trip up to Duluth and found out real quick that our first campground was not what we read in books and brochures.
Anyway................I got the truck and TT backed-up in our site.
We are very excited about our first camping trip in our first TT.....
In the excitement...I did not place the chocks between the tires on the trailer.
As you can imagine, this is a mistake on my part.
Our First trip, first trailer, by ourself, in a place new to us, on a lake.
When I disconnected the trailer from the truck, the trailer started to roll away..........down hill.............towards the BIG lake...........Rather fast!!!!
I grabbed the tongue of the TT and told my wife to back the truck up so I can re-connect everything and save our trailer. :error:
She was not sure what to do! As it turned out, the tongue jack came off the block and stopped the trailer from rolling off in to the lake.
We now have a rule..............Chocks set between the tires BEFORE we disconnect.
I hope everyone gets a good laugh from our mistake. However, I hope all of us can learn from this as well.
