That's a great idea. I'll file this under the "good-to-know-but-never-want-to-use" category.

First thing I did on both of my TTs before even using them was to replace the stock cap with a cap with a hose fitting. I don't ever use a hose on it, but I can remove the hose cap first slowly to verify there is nothing in the drain before pulling the main cap off. If it starts leaking I can then put the hose under the hose connection to catch what's in the there before I remove the main cap. Has worked great so far!

Relax...this is a friendly site. Let's not be an instigator for an issue that was an accident. Just because you are perfect does not mean everyone else is.
