"Oh ****" moments

Another thread with a similar title got me thinking.
I was parked right beside the house & unhooked my pop-up once before I had the wheels chocked. It rolled to the side and stopped a few inches before the tongue hit the siding.

But hey, it could be worse. Like this guy:

He saw that thread with the $1 million floatable RV and thought he'd try it with his 5'er.

An OH **** moment for me was when I had to back up our 24' Security Traveler on an old logging road for 1/4 mile to turn around.

Another one for me was similar to clutch. We went to Todd Lake which is close by on the National Forest. Once back in the forest, I made a wrong turn and was on a narrow dead-end dirt road. I made matters worse when I tried to turn around. We did it, but it took a while.

I think the guy across the road from me said something like that when he dumped his 38ft motorhome black tank into a 15 gal blue tote. He pulled the valve and then went inside to do something.

First time camping in the popup a few years ago I forgot to put the little legs down in the back. Middle of the night my kid woke up and got into our bed...the whole thing went over. Woke up half the campground. DW and kids slept the rest of the night in the van.

Every time we go camping my wife asks if I remembered to put down the stabilizers before she enters for the first time.
