However, if you do connect you may travel places that you have not considered. Do you remember the old melody, I think is was called the "Elephant Walk" as that is what is going though my mind right now...

What happened? Is he down in a hole?

He needs one of those signs seen on semis but on his windshield-- " this vehicle makes WIDE turns". He qualified for the "tail swingers club@ too.

He went out the entrance and turned the wrong direction for the width of the road. The right rear wheel went into the drainage ditch. He then tried to power through and dragged the frame.

Figured he was on the frame and probably luck or he would have had body damage. Looks like no one and nothing but his wallet was hurt after paying for that big tow truck to show up. Nerves probably turned to panic and made things worse. I wonder how much driver training or even explaining his dealer did with him ~~ or just take the money and hand him the keys. That is exactly the amount of training my neighbor received after buying a new F350 and showing up at the dealer to pick up his new 40' 5er. He called from the interstate and said "John, what the H3ll did I just do?". I had him come to my house and off to the new storage facility with 4 acres of grass. We spent 2 hours with cones, mostly turning and a little backing. He was much more relaxed when we quit. They hitched him up so the next day we were hooking and unhooking. Although they did a thorough PDI he forgot most of that on the drive home.

The only issue that I noticed is that the right rear wheel looked to me to be shifted rearward a bit. It looked much closer to the rear of the wheel well than to the front. I may have been just looking for some sort of damage and it may not be an issue at all. Also the tow truck lifted from what looked like the tow hitch which to me seems like a lot of weight for the hitch.

Hopefully the rear wheel / axel was not damaged. If he was going slow it should not have. You are correct, that hitch was not rated to lift the MH. That could cause frame damage! Might find a deal on a Berkie this week....

I was about 75 yards away so I couldn't see for sure but that's where it looked like he was lifting from. Really I couldn't see any other options without causing major body damage. Hopefully the short amount of time that it was lifted minimized any damages.

Guess he could just put his jacks down. Put some board under tire and drive away ?? But may be in way deeper than picture shows.

They did put the jacks down which lifted the RV enough to get it off the frame. The pics are after it was lifted by the jacks. You can see them behind the wheel with orange jack pads underneath. The board idea is a good idea I don't know if it would work here or not.

He could have put blocks or boards under the tire, raise the jacks and re-block, continue until the tire was high enough to drive out.

It would have saves him the tow cost and probably not taken any more time than waiting for the tow truck.
