I accidentally hooked up the fresh water hose to the black water rinse-out.

Moments later I heard squealing from the trailer. The water built up pressure in the tank and when my wife flushed, brown stuff exploded all over her and the bathroom ceiling, walls, and floor.

That little sticker that says "open the valve while flushing" is for real !

This isn't the first time I've heard this, but I don't understand how that can happen, since the black tank is vented directly to the roof. There should be no way for pressure to build. You should be able to keep filling the tank until it comes out the roof vent. The only thing I can think of is that your vent is obstructed in some way.

I always offer and only once was I told no thanks, and that show I could not bear to watch. When I help ppl new or not to camping they ask what can they do for me I say to pay it forward and help someone else when they need it. Camping is way different then years I spent boating, much more enjoyable.

likewise here, I always offer to help especially if they are elderly. I was raised to help if at all possible but with that said some of them are really hard headed and stubborn and some just mean. Most campers in our area are the nicest folks you will ever meet. I can say I have only had one cooler of wine coolers stolen from an Auburn ballgame we were tailgating (not really camping just having a good time) But there are always exceptions

We were camping a while back and there was a young couple with a brand new truck and trailer. They decided to raise the hitch ball and were tightening it with channel locks. I walked over and told them I have some breaker bars and sockets if he would like to borrow them. He said he was good. Glad they left that day and we were still camping. Sometimes testosterone gets in the way of rational decisions. Jerry
