How stupid can i get?

MH is parked near my house but I haven't been into it for a month and haven't started it for two months. Decided to turn it over and let it run while I checked the rest of the MH, so clicked on the rocker switch that connects the chassis batteries and what do you know, it wouldn't stay on. Light came on, but as soon as I released the switch, it went off again. I naturally assumed the battery was flat and so I got the jumper cables out and connected my Suzuki up. Still no joy, so put a bit more juice through the cables and let it run for a few more minutes.

Then I looked again at the rocker switch to see that it rocks UP to connect the batteries. Surprisingly when I did that it worked fine. I am going to have to go full timing before I completely lose my marbles. Thank goodness no one else on this site is as stupid as me...

I just looked at the time. It was after 10pm and I thought I irv2'd thru all my Sunday prime time TV dramas.

CLICK! DUH! It's only Saturday night. Guess I'm the April Fool.

True story I am afraid. Every time I take THE BEAST out, I learn something new, even if it is something I learnt before.
