New to Rv, first trip

I was talking to friend who knew some one that just purchased a new coach. First time buyer. My friend explained to him ins and outs of the coach.

Their first trip was to Disney in Florida. His wife,his two daughters and himself.

The first day my friend gets a call from the newbie, why the TV does not work when I am driving down the road? My friend explain and reviewed with him why and refrred him to the booklet he gave him and referred him to the correct page that explain why.

Arrival in Florida, problems hooking up and another phone call. Finally all hooked up time to have fun.

These people spent 10 days at Disney then started back to Ohio.

One day out from Florida my friend receives a call this coach smells like a cattle truck. Question was asked are you using the bathroom with window open while driving down the road? Answer was yes, advised to close the window as it will draw fumes from the tank.

Two days later these folks came home dry camping a long the way,total 3 days dry camping.

My friend swung by these 1 st timers home and the owners (husband and wife)were outside holding a rag over their faces with two garden hoses , hosing out a storage compartment.

The storage compartment housed the the dump valves . The husband upon leaving Flordia dumped both tanks , closed the gray tank and left the black tank open and did not have the end caps on. For 3 days the black water was draining into the compartment , 3 days of waste for 4 people!!!
