Ok I like this. I am going to confess to copying you.

I'll presume this is a joke, based on the fact that nobody shot you yet. My stairs are noisy enough and I sleep lightly enough that, if you're lucky, it would only be a can or two of bear spray and a major blow to the head when I fling the door open.

New 5er to us.

1.Was adjusting the pin box and pinched the hot wire that fed the breakaway switch. Wow did that wire melt down fast.

2. Boofed the awning backing into our parking spot after the 2nd trip. I rubbed the awning on the steel upright for the roof, got into three layers of awning in the process. I'm going to fix it with awning repair tape until the awning gets ragged and then replace it.

Closed, but did not lock one outside storage door on Motorhome...left turn, busy intersection at the beach...Weber Q grill went flying out. Good Samaritan waved us down and gave it back. Other than a couple of scratches it still works like new.

People with the MORryde steps are immune to this

Just as bad as the post about some kids opening the black tank valves on trailers that had the cap still on and then closing the valve.

unless you want someone messing with your trailer, keep your hands to yourself.

Mine would be,
Getting home after a 4 day "weekend", parking the TT, unhooking the TV, and emptying the fridge.
Went to work the next day, got home, went to level and remove dirty clothes.
Electric jack wouldn't work?
Opened the trailer, no lights?
Checked the battery voltage meter, blank display?
Got out DVM and battery read 0 VDC.
Yep, forgot to switch off the fridge.

Hmmm, I suspect that you are either a member of or on the candidate list to become a Phat PhrogÖ.

BTW, keep me posted on your travel plans. I like to be prepared!

Picked up a brand new camper in Iowa. Pulled it into a campground about 4 hours later. Backed it in popped it off the hitch ball and it starts rolling back about 10 feet and stops. Good thing another 10 feet it would have went over a hill and into the tree's. Morale to the story always bring your wheel chocks. That's straight from the mouth of the DW.

Bringing my brannnnd neeewwww 5’r home. Backed under the sloped solar awning too far over on the low side, re-arranged the air conditioner cover. To add insult to injury, noticed the damaged cover after I unhooked. Went to hook up again, forgot the tailgate and punched a small 1” x 3” hole in the bay door.......

I have to confess that I don't always pick up after our dog along the trail or road, especially during the night. I keep saying I'll come back to get it - NOT. Ok, give me 40 whacks!

Does it count if I serve everyone passing by Irish coffee for breakfast? Not sure if that makes me a sinner or a saint
