I have never had poop on my roof before, so I will concede this exchange based on your experience.

Like there is no pressure when you overfill your vented fresh water tank?

Well, just what did you expect to happen when you put up all those "Roll Tide" signs.

I often see people filling their fresh water tanks with the black water hose at the filling/dump stations, don't the realize people put that hose down there dump hose. That is just gross.

Not every time!

Remember one weekend a storm blew in off Toledo Bend Lake out of no where! Pulled awning legs off camper, put them under RV. Ran to help brother next door. We ran across the park to help a buddy, picking up another helper. By the time we finished, 7 people putting in awnings!
Two ripped completely off campers, 3 boats(tied off) sunk (mine included).
Cooperation!!!!
Dave

This is in response to all the people who took offense to my mentioning that using a garden hose for your city water connection was not the best thing to do.

Drinking water from a garden hose may not be a bad thing in small doses but it is not a good thing either. Do a search. Yes I grew up in the 60's and 70's and used to drink out of the hose a lot as a kid and sometimes still do. However, garden hoses are not potable water hoses. There are studies showing toxins come from the hose and build up in the hose, and they especially get into the water when the water is left sitting in the hose, sort of like a filled hose connected to an RV and city water. Add heat like in the summer and it gets worse.

It is even suggested to run your water for a while from your garden hose before watering your vegetables. Saying there is nothing wrong with you has nothing to do with what sort of chemicals you may be ingesting. They make white RV hoses for a reason and it's not just to make money.

Either way, you do what you want to do and I will do what I want to do, the info is out there.

Be safe out there and always wear a helmet!
Not a camping story, but interesting just the same....

This reminds me of a time I was in the Dominican Republic. I saw 7 people on a motorcycle. There were 3 on the seat, 2 on the handle bars and two standing on each side of the frame while holding on the the ones on the seat. All this while black smoke billowing from the tailpipe. I asked the taxi driver how fast we were going. He replied 40 km/h ( I am not sure what that equates to mph). I was curious to our speed because the bike passed us a was quickly pulling away.
