Never park your golf cart under your fifth wheel

It always something! Last weekend on Sunday we were closing up camp as we usually do. We parked my dads golf cart under his fifth wheel and head home. About an hour later we get a call from the campground that my dads fifth wheel was on fire! The golf cart went up in flames and took the camper with it. Thank god NO ONE was hurt or even there. Below are the pics. It is not a Jayco but I posted them anyway, If they should not be here please remove the post. Remember DO NOT PARK UNDER THE FIFTH WHEEL!!! Thanks.

Wow, those blackened propane tanks are a scary thought! Glad no one was hurt.

Thanks for the safety lesson. Was it plugged in to a charger at the time?

Gas or battery powered? Bummer about the 5'er, looked like a nice rig.

I saw a similar thing with a Polaris side x side two years ago. The neighbors saw the smoke and pulled the machine out from under the trailer. No damage to the trailer but the Polaris was a total loss. The owners were in the trailer sleeping when it happened.
