Screw up

I have my Berk parked in its spot next to my house.... Guess what happens when you turn on your water pump so you can flush the toilet, leave it on and not realize that the faucet at the kitchen sink was slightly on... Guess what you discover two days later.... SOAKED CARPET!!!! Good grief !!!! Took lots of time/effort to correct that mess.... Thank goodness for a HUGE shop fan... Run that sucker non-stop for two days and it WILL dry everything out.... Lesson learned!!!

Talking about a screw up------------

This is something I would blame on the DW, Dog, Cat, Bird, not me!

Ouch !

I make sure all sink stops are out when left unattended .

Stick a dehumidifier in there to be sure !

Wouldn't have made any difference about the sink stop... I had the sink covers in place so it just hit that and had no where to go but the floor...

Lucky you. I could blame it on whomever I want, but it's still my fault.

Have you tried your pump? Mine leaked, emptied the FW tank and burnt the pump up.

I did something close to that the first long trip with ours. We used the washer and I went out to open the gray water drain and I must have closed it again some how. I'll plead stupid. In case you wondered where the water backs up its from the shower. I can move real fast when I need to. Not to bad a mess. It helped that the MH was almost new and my wife saw it happen and grabbed the towels and started yelling. A dehumidifier works very good at drying the MH out. No damage and nothing but a learning experience.
