Talking Fess up! Share your biggest "DOH" moment!

Think of it as charity...you'll be helping us newbies avoid some possible mistakes or mishaps!

Way, way too many to list in one night but the most important one is to chock your wheels before you unhook.

My Doh moment was when I pulled into the Sami station and disconnected the elect plug from the tv to avoid drain my tv battery while dumping the tanks and forgetting to hook it back up. I noticed the brake controller flashing while travelling down the mountain and sure enough, no trailer brakes. Fortunately my truck was capable of stopping it and I pulled over as soon as I could.

Modern TV's have a relay that usually disconnects TV from truck battery when the truck is off, FYI.

I have twice forgotten to latch the hitch (!) and had it flop a bit making odd noise/feeling and then I remember, stop and latch it.

And, just to be pedantic, the proper spelling is d'oh!

Wasn't my d'oh but my dealerships. Picked up our new trailer and they forgot to secure the propane tank. 20 minutes later a car behinds me is honking frantically as the tank started dragging on the road with sparks coming off of it.

Google it. You'll find it come from The Simpsons. It was Homer Simpson's "annoyed grunt".
