- Forgot to put the pin in the tow hitch (Opps)
- drove about a half mile with parking brakes on
- TV Antenna up
- Started to Drive off with the jacks down
- Steps out
- 30AMP power power dragging down the road (Yikes!!!)
- Tried to put a Minicooper all the way onto the tow dolly (all 4 wheels)

Drag your toad four miles on the interstate, wave at everybody that is frantically waving trying to get your attention, then you see smoke and realize your parking brake is on. Just a senior moment

In my 5er days I asked a friend to accompany me to my storage area and assist me in backing in. All went well and I was backed in very nicely. Dropped tailgate, unhooked umbilical cord, brake cable, raised front of 5er for release of king pin. Everything was set. Engine running, I walk to the drivers side, (F350, King Ranch, Long Bed, Crew Cab) and get in. Put it in drive and pull away, slowly of course, but not slow enough. CRUNCH! When I got out my friend said he thought he was doing me a favor by closing the tailgate.

My fault - I was the driver. I should have verified in the mirror that things were right to pull away. Insurance paid, but let me warn you that it is considered a "moving violation" even if you don't get a ticket but insurance pays.

And!
Again in our 5er days, my knee was hurting on our first adventure out with the 5er. We arrived at the CG and my knee was still hurting. My dear wife walked around the front of the 5er and said, "Is there anything I can do?"

"Ah, yeah. Hook up this sewer hose so I don't have to bend down and do it."

She gets on her knees and maneuvers to the sewer output. I tell her to remove the black cap on the sewer outlet by just twisting it counterclockwise (while indicating which directions was couterclockwise). She asked, "Will I get anything on me!"

"No," I replied, and she proceeded to twist the cap off.

WHHOOOOSSSsssshhhhh, as a deluge of liquid came forth.

I had forgotten to close the grey valve at the stick house and we had washed things down before heading off. I did immediately tell her that it was not sewer water - but it did not seem to help. She stays completely away from hookups now, with dog leash in hand as to say, you have your job, and I have mine.

My lovely wife reminded me of another memorable moment when we had out first motor home, a 1981 Foretravel that we got when it was 20 years old. Since the exhaust pipe was on the right side, her job was to look out the window and tell me the color of the smoke coming out.

The memorable moment was when she said, 'Flames are bad, right?'

My wife asked me what could be flapping on the passenger side of the coach while driving down the freeway in high winds. Yep right $1000 Awning laying in the ditch after I pulled it the rest of the way off.

The moneypit

I bought a 1983 Class C Tioga RV from a neighbor in 1994. The rig had sat in Maine for a few years before she got it back to NJ. It needed much work and it was real cheap, needed a transmission, exhaust system work but the RV part was clean. She told me she had some bad gas once and it had 3 fuel filters. Once I got it ready to roll I couldn't get a mile or 2 from home before one of the filters clogged up. Then it sat in my yard for a few weeks before I tired to launch it again. This time I changed 3 filters, one ceramic one in the carb, one in the fuel line going into the carb and one under the driver door in the frame. Same problem and i'd limp back home. I changed the fuel pump, no good either. Finally disgusted I drove it in my back yard and over a lawn rake which snagged the fuel line going up and over the top of the fuel tank. When I crawled under to retrieve it, there was a few feet of line tangled around it , INCLUDING a 4th filter, clear plastic, couldn't see thru it! Problem solved.
