Don't leave the storage compartment door open above the drivers seat while driving down the road. Especially when there is a big flashlight in there and you make a sharp turn. Ouch!!

Don't leave the bottle of dish soap standing up in the cupboard under the sink. Even though the squeeze top is pushed down closed, it will still leak when it falls over! Slip slidin' away.

Not RV but but husband skinning deer head. Insert bucknife into thigh. Next year insert bucknife into other thigh doing same thing. Drove self to hospital both times because I think he wanted to prove he could have gotten there wounded on his own.

If the "stop engine" light comes on and you don't notice it, the engine will eventually stop. Just remember, you cannot restart it under any circumstances if the transmission is not in neutral. You don't even hear a click. (Someone told me that! Yeah! Right!)

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

when you coming down a steep hill and having exhaust brake on, at the foothill, don't forget to turn it off.

Camping at night in the Class A with the front blinds closed. Toad parked in front. Turn on the headlights of the MH to go outside and get something out of the toad. The next morning a friendly passerby says your lights are on. Duhhhhhhh.

Dont try to get to close to the power source thinking it will be easier than connecting an extension cord. After you knock it off (the power box) by backing into it (yeah I got PDClose), you will have a lot more time invested than had you just dug out the extension cord!

Don't forget door awning prior to departure. They don't make good curb feelers for tree branches.

Don't leave your awning open and leave your RV. Chances are it may rain or a strong wind. In my case, we just arrived and setup camp in our super C Class. My wife put out the awning even though it really did not need to be out. We took a ride to the store and it was sunny when we left. While at the store it rained really hard for a few minutes and then stopped. When we got to our motor home the awning had collected a lot of water. Being new at this, I used a broom handle to push up from under the awning and it snapped. Replacement cost $2,000.

I had disconnected the hoses to my washer one year when winterizing. The following spring forgot to hook them back up. The waterfall coming out of the heater vent outside reminded me. Guess I should have used my checklist, the one where I noted that I had disconnected those 2 lines.
