My sis and bro in law bought a "new to them" slightly used very nice tt. Now ol' bro is one of those guys who is always in a hurry. They picked up the new trailer at about 5 in the afternoon in Portland, Or and headed for a campground on the Oregon coast at Seaside about 90 miles away. The weather was typical at that time of year with rain coming down in buckets so bro was really rushing with the utilities hookup. He hooked up electricity, water and sewer. Went back inside and turned on lights and opened a water tap - uh oh no water. He could hear it running and went back outside to check. Yep, the tap was still open and water running. about the time he got back inside, an ugly brown liquid was seeping out from under the bathroom door. He immediately went outside to turn off the water and as he hit the door, he noticed that the rain had changed to a rather brownish color and didn't smell too good. Needless to say, in his haste he had hooked the hose to the black tank flushing inlet without a regulator as the park has fairly low water pressure. The water was spewing out of the vent on top of the trailer and running down over the sides making one **** of a mess. He got the water shut off and luckily there was a Costco nearby where he was able to buy a wet/dry vac. They spent until 2:00 AM cleaning carpets and the inside of the TT. I talked him into painting the flushing inlet a nice bright red color and installing a quick disconnect on the water inlet to avoid a recurrence of this nasty incident.
