The only thing missing in this forum is a "like" button as I sit here laughing my head off at some of the responses. We've all been guilty of doing dumb
things. Just nice to agree with other people who've been right there with me.

I've got you beat. How about the hitch pin? I took it in to measure it's length and diameter (I was making something that could be locked with a hitch lock.) then promptly left the pin at work. My only pin.

So that weekend I'm hitching up and yep, no pin. I had the hitch, I had everything. No pin, and it was my only pin at the time.

It being locked up I burned an hour running across town to Walmart and back, plus bought a locking pin.

Yeah.......ooops!

It doesn't matter if I go camping, fishing, or out to sea, I always forget one thing. And it's usually something different each time.

"I always have some type of hitch in my receiver, you never know when someone wants to test the strength of their front bumper..... "


Beware:
There are many locales where leaving a drawbar and ball in a receiver on a vehicle will get you a ticket! There was a traffic stop last year in a nearby town in upstate NY where they were writing tickets as folks were pulled over.

I told myself over and over that I will need to bring it with to use my jack. 15 minutes before we leave I tell myself again that I will need it. We are in the garage ready to go and I sit there for a good 3 minutes going through my "mental checklist" because that always works. So we head out and the whole family is super excited, my 3 year old is saying "Daddy, we go find camper?". Yep, we will be at grandma and grandpa's house in about an hour to get it. 45 minutes into the trip I look at my wife and say "Uh, guess what I didn't grab?". Yep the battery. Now, I am saved by the manual crank but it sure would have been a whole lot nicer with that battery......

or a set of jumper cables to the truck battery and the empty battery leads on the camper...

I bought the round keyed locks for a few compartments to keep my stuff mine... leave a set of keys in the tow vehicle just in case!

I sometimes forget to engage TOW HAUL till I've begun to accelerate.

I drove 70 miles to buy a bass boat. Never thought to put a ball in the received. Dealer gave me a new one. Cha-ching!

Picking up our new 5th wheel last month from the dealership that is an hour away, I got 3/4 of the way there only to realize I left the temporary tag on the kitchen table. :/ With a truck that gets 10 miles to the gallon I wasn't a happy camper...
