Try this one on for size. A few years back, I was following my parents through farm country on a two lane highway, traveling about 55 mph. luckily I was back a block or so, but I saw it all. One of the farmers had his irrigation system going and it was spraying the highway really good, like completely. Parent's drove through, I do not recall them slowing down. The stream of water hit the hitch assembly yanked the e-brake cable and locked their brakes up on the TT. The tires smoked big time. They came to a quick stop, and put some good flat spots on the bottom of the tires.

To most of us the operation is common knowledge. Its just another example of poorly trained/non caring dealership personal not explaining the most basic SAFETY systems to the customer. If they did their job, we could go back to discussing black tank etiquette or something else more entertaining. Lol

Lessons Learned

For those of you sitting on the edges of your seats waiting for the result...

YES, the pin being pulled from the TT's emergency brake actuator DID cause a complete drainage of a fully charged battery within 12 hours. Re-inserted pin at 1700 last night, installed a freshly charged battery, and still had a full-power reading at 0700 this morning.
