I could do with fewer "we'll laugh about it later" moments. AKA 'boneheaded' moments.

When you are prepping to leave a CG don't forget to pull the chocks.
Don't ask why I mention this

I think we all have a set of crushed plastic chocks! They crunch nicely lol.

It's even better when they in front of the first axle. That way you can run over it twice

Let's include unplugging the power cord instead of being forced into installing a detachable cord.

I've seen where dog owners have put up a raised line (like a clothes line) and attached the leashes to that. It still posed some tangle problems but appeared to be better than the alternative.
Yea, that's what we did. One line for each dog. The problem was on this particular site, there was only one good tree to attach all three lines. So as the dogs got together at that end, they'd tangle with each other. And they'd wrap themselves around the tree or the tie down points at the other ends of the lines. Next time, we'll try for a site that has tie down points that will keep the dogs well away from each other. I will also work something onto the lines that will stop their travel before they can reach the tie down points and begin wrapping themselves up there.

Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.

Along the same lines.. replace the sewer cap after done emptying!

And don't forget to CLOSE the valves... Ask me how I know.

I worked at an airport for 31 years. All equipment was to be chocked when you got off it. I don't have enough fingers & toes to count the number of times I jumped back on a piece of equipment & ran over the chocks. And there always seemed to be somebody watching when I did it

When it all goes smooth we call 'em "Drama Free". We've also noticed that a trip without a visit to a big box store or Wally Mart cause something broke or was forgotten just doesn't seem complete.
