I kinda wish more people would maybe actually help a newbie out and gently educate him on his error, than just sit there and waiting with glee for the poop shower...

Normally I would. But they weren’t here when we got home from the park last night and we went right to bed. And this morning they haven’t gotten up.
Honestly most of us would help, but the point of this thread is to get a good laugh. Not tell everyone how nice we are helping others out.
So chuckle a little.... make a joke.... and then help them out on your own.

So it looks like a bunch of rigs around me have boarded up and closed up for the summer and are in full-on hurricane prep mode.



It seriously looks like they've screwed into the sides of their campers but I could be wrong as to what this hardware is:





There must have been a special on this hardware as I can count a dozen rigs around me that use the same setup.

And then, I've heard of people anchoring their rigs before but this is the first I've actually seen it:

the ground looks like it slopes a LOT assuming the TT is level. Maybe they ran the hose support backwards to lessen the slope so it wouldn't come out so forcefully and pop the end of the hose out of the ground??

I think those are threaded studs that they've permenently mounted around the window frames. I've seen that done on houses so that the boards can easily be installed and removed with the wingnuts when hurricanes are coming. Then the boards are removed and stored for the next time. With the predrilled holes in the wood, it makes it easy. But yes, the end of the stud you can't see is self tapping threads and screwed into the window frame

All pretty common in larger R/V parks in FL.

I seen those same things some 20 years ago when we lived there.

I looked at this photo for several minutes, twice, before deciding on commenting.

I decided I am not there so any analysis is speculative.

A picture is a true representation of actual situations except when it comes to perspective.

Looking at the front jacks tell me something is wrong with the picture.

The supports are built to slope down. The ground there slopes considerably down. The sewer line appears to go down just after exiting the trailer then levels out. From the perspective of my easy chair while drinking my morning hot beverage it looks level with a slight curve away from the camera which appears like a half hose rise.

I am not a person can sit back with a smirk on my face waiting for someone to make a mistake so I can laugh and poke fun. Not that anyone on this forum would ever do that, just saying others on other forums might.

I would not go banging on someone’s door in the AM telling them they made a mistake either.

However, I could and would leave a note, IF the hose does go up hill, warning that neither fluids nor solids flow up hill and to please be careful and gently lift the hose starting at the TT to remove what could be in it THEN to flood it generously before disconnecting either end repeating the forced drainage.

The later part, I would particularly add in case they left before I did. I would not want any brown hanging around.

Looks like exterior siding to me.

Ahh, cool. I haven't been in a big RV park in the summer before. Well, outside of Orlando where most people don't do a whole lot of hurricane prep.

Could very well be an optical illusion. Analyze the plane of the TT Vs. the plane of the sewer hose.

Everyone’s comments are pretty accurate. It is a downhill site. The support being backwards brings it to “about level” so they will probably get away with it. I will probably mention it tonight when I see them. They do t have the valves open so no problems yet.

Thanks to those who took the joke as such and got a good laugh with me. Again, I thought the whole point of this thread was a good laugh. I don’t want a poo leak in front of my camper as much as anyone else and plan to talk to them. And till then they should get away with it.

Alright, here's another. I think I've seen this rig before- just not sure if online or in parks.

It is vertical hardboard siding, very durable (now), roughly 10 years back there was a class action lawsuit, mainly for the mid-west, the siding started to fall apart, I still have it on my house.

In this day and age some people are "offended" by the least little thing. Sometimes it's just better to mind your own business, unless they ask for help.

Looks like a fun house at an amusement park. I wonder what color they list on the registration.
