Be good to test so I know if ever run into a situation where the battery needs to come out.
I know it works on my fifth wheel for the landing gear. The last delivery driver drove it here from Indiana without a battery and hitched/unhitched because that compartment was locked.

Jeez... Forgotten the propane tanks once, oops. Forgot our pillows another time. Use a foam pillow and found that you could not find one foam pillow in the state of MD (at least where we were).. hmm, what else... Forgot to bring socks and underwear for a two week trip. I though the wife did it and she though I did it.... Checklists are good...

I work remotely from my office, but I did make a stop in the summer of 2012 for a week near the office so I could go there and work while we pushed hard on a project. Turns out I forgot my dress shoes. I was left with the options of white sneakers or 2 different kinds of sandals.

I opted for tan dress socks and tan sandals.

My manager did not see the humor in it. (Still doesn't- makes it all the funnier for me!)

I've done that for the staff holiday's party. Flew all the way to corporate, only to realize I left the house with sneakers. Ended up hitting a mall before the dinner to pick up a proper pair of shoes.

Jeez, glad you reminded me. I am going camping tomorrow and had pulled one of the tanks out, when I fried a turkey last weekend. It's still sitting on the back porch......where I would have left it. Thanks. I owe you one.

Not a camping example, but a recent senior moment for me anyway. On our last snowmobile trip in March, we got all the way to my parents camp (180 miles away), got the truck unloaded etc, and then when we went to get us and the kids dressed to take a sled ride...found out I had forgotten the kid's helmets. D'oh!

I've forgotten the bumper hitch before when going to pick up, so started storing it in the trailer. I've also forgotten trailer keys before, so now keep a spare set stashed in the the Suburban so that I can make sure to get into the trailer to get the hitch...

I've forgotten keys so many times that I consider them optional.

Since I have the trailer at my house, I leave it unlocked. The only thing I really need a key for is to get into the compartment that has my chocks and cords...which can only be closed/opened by a key. Since I usually camp with a group of friends, their compartment keys fit mine, so I borrow one of theirs to get into it if need be.

It's happened so many times, that when I arrive at the campground, one of them usually walks over with their keys in hand.

Speaking of keys..... could not find the key to open the small door on our old camper water fill hatch..... (Fresh water tank empty). Asked the in-laws for a blue water jug to put water in..... "Do you want to borrow 'my' key", is what he said......"They are all 'keyed' the same".... sure enough it worked.
