embarrassing stories

Would love to hear some embarrassing stories that make you laugh now that you look back on is one of mine...i hope it makes you smile

This made me laugh out loud..As this is my story....I bought my new MH and brought it home after the Tech went through showing me all the new goodies and how to use them all...Well not ever giving anything a second thought i went on my first Over night trip and was getting ready to come home. I walked over to my tank dumps to hook up my stinky slinky and squatted down to open the cap up to stick the old stinky slinky on and was hit in the face by a gusher of nasty stinky poop filled water lmao the look on my face was priceless.SOOOOOO what is the first natural reaction most people will have? Yepp try to place cap back on as quick as possible....Ummm let me tell you thats not such a great idea...lmao yepp the gushing poop water decides to become pressurized and begins to SPRAY ALL OVER ME...lmao. If you could have seen my dear wife's face laughing so hard tears were coming down her face...of course i violated every rule about using vulgarity right about then, finally got smart and pushed in the black tanks valve to stop my shower from hell. And Yes im here to tell you that smell wont leave your nostrils for days lol..i learned a very valuable lesson that day...ALWAYS CHECK VALVES BEFORE TAKING THE CAP

OK question Time...

Yep did the same thing first time I dumped. Dw was screaming. Tried to put the cap back then figured out the hose was a better idea. Good thing about it got to use the outside shower(couldn't figure out why there was an outside when I bought the MH-now I know)

Not my story but at a campground in Nashville a nice couple in a brand new 5th wheel parked next to us. They had just bought the trailer from a dealer in Muskegon Mi and as that's my home town we struck up a conversation. They had been on the road for a couple of days on the shake down cruse. Later that day he was looking at the sewer and was not sure but thought the dump was open and caps on. Took a look and sure enough they all were open. I suggested that he close them and he did. I also urged him to but a heavy duty bag around the end to catch the poo that was in the line. I even got a bag out for him. He said he didn't need it and would just take off the cap and put on the sewer hose. I strongly asked him to reconsider and he said he was good. So I stepped back and watched him take a real good poo bath. It made a real mess and we ended up with the windows closed and the A/C on until the park got the mess cleaned up. It is amazing how much poo is in a 4"line. Always entertaining at the RV park.

That is exactly why i have a twist on valve,then the cap.Don't like suprises at all. Happened to me too.Last year in Williams Arizona.Not a good way to start the day off.Had gotten in late and didn't hook up until the morning.Valve cable on the black tank had broken when I thought I closed it in Barstow California.Not a lot of yuck in there,but enough.

My most embarrassing moment was trying to orient my trailer correctly in a back-in spot, TT door facing toward fireplace, picnic table and away from close neighbor. I came in one way stopped and evaluated the spot. I realize things are on the wrong sides, that’s okay I’ll just spin around and back in from the other direction. So now I’m backing in from a precarious direction; site was designed to come in from my first direction. Again I realize my trailer will not be oriented quite right. So again I pull forward spin around and back in from the other direction and its still not right. At least I’m backing in the direction the site was designed for but I’m still scratching my head and then it hits me. I’m an idiot(brain loss), there is only one way to back into a back-in site. Several neighbors came by to console me, saying I had a big trailer to get into a small spot. Nope that wasn’t the problem, it was me.
I have been towing utility trailers and boats for 35 plus years. I have been towing and parking TTs for 8yrs, 300 plus different camping spots with never an issue.
My only excuse was that I had gotten up at 4am drank 3 cups of coffee and still wasn’t awake when I pulled in.
Still hung my head low for a while, at least I was in Yellow Stone.
