I don't know about yours, but my handles are clean. I only use gloves setting up and taking down.

During spring and fall I go to storage and nap in the trailer to get away.

I parked my TT in front of my house over a weekend without a TORVP - Temporary Overnight RV Permit!

I have used a vacant full hookup site to empty and rinse my tanks.

Changing camping spots and leaving the tailgate of the truck down, what a dent! Traded that truck and camper right after that.

I once broke my camper doing something stupid and took it back to the dealer for them to fix it under warranty.

Last summer I had to reposition my 5th wheel and forgot to latch the kingpin. As a result I dropped my 5th wheel on my truck which damaged my bed rails and tailgate.

Listened to the camp ranger that we could turn around on the dead end. Ended up with the TT perpendicular to the road, but the truck facing the wrong way. Had to unhitch, reposition the truck, put on 4 wheel drive and power through sand to get straightened out. Special thanks to camper Daniel for taking over directing the back for my DW so our marriage remained intact.

CONFESSION-what are your RV sins!?!

On our first trip with our new 2018 Forest River Forester, I noticed the square plastic pins that hold the refrigerator back panel on and thought they were on the wrong way. I turned them 90 degrees. Later that day after driving 90 miles we noticed the panel was completely missing. We drove back 90 miles and with 2 miles to go we found it! It just had a few scratches on it . Later on the same trip I thought I could make a u turn in a pay parking lot as I didn’t want to pay for 3 spaces. I saw the large tree but thought I could go around it. When the sound of the branches scratching the rig started I still could have backed out but like a stubborn ass I just kept going around thinking it would be ok. It looked like a monster with large claws put scratches down 30 feet of my new full body paint. It must have been 10 different long scratches. Luckily the body shop was able to buff it out .

When I make reservations and they ask the length of our rv I add 6 to 8 feet to the actual length. Sometimes I even feel bad camping in our huge spacious site.......sometimes

Lol. I sometimes lie the other way, but I know the site length as I have looked it up.
