Amen to that, grew up doing it and still do at 59.

I accidentally hooked up my fresh water hose to my black tank flush once. It gets confusing when you use 2 different trailers.
Then I wondered why I heard water running but none was coming out of the faucet.

Yep... Made it come out the toilet one time... Another time Old Pooful let loose out the roof vent... After it happened.. I shut off the water, made sure no one was looking then just started laughing... First thought was the scene from RV!

Second time lighting my manually lit hot water heater in the PUP I lost half a goatee.. Eyebrow and all my eyelashes... AH THE MEMORIES!

I am so new to this that I don't feel qualified to offer help. I have, however, been pulling trailers and backing them up for many moons so I think I can eventually maneuver my trailer into any spot I need to get it into. My only caveat is that this thing is bigger than anything I have ever maneuvered. When went to Hatteras our escort offered to help me back in. I said, sure. He got us into the spot in one try. The whole evolution took about 5 minutes. He said, "you didn't need my help". Not sure if he was being nice or not but it was definitely a seamless maneuver. The difference between his knowledge and mine was staggering

Dumbest thing I've seen while camping is a father, mother, and 2 small children all riding on the same ATV. All were without helmets and the ATV was being ridding fairly fast.

I almost lost a friend who rolled an ATV (5 broken ribs, 2 collapsed lungs, and a partridge and a pear tree) and I take ATV safety very seriously and have witnessed too many ATV accidents. A small bump or rock on an otherwise easy trail can cause bump steer and bad things to happen.

Be safe out there and always wear a helmet!

Yeah have seen many way overloaded golf carts as well, any fast maneuver and it is all over.

The only thing overloaded on my golf cart was the engine. I put in a 500 cc Polaris sled engine on it and fast maneuvers were the norm especially when outrunning golf course personnel whose carts were governed to 12mph ;-)

Agreed, but no pressurization, other than gravity, occurs.
