LOL!!!!!

The closest I've come to this was at a Flying J with two sewer hoses connected together, that became "unconnected" from each other.

AHHH close the valve close the valve lol.

Look at the way the airstreams lock closed, you could probably rig something like that with a clothes hanger and a power drill.

Childhood laugh,,,,,,,,,,,,,

We came home from camping with our brand new 1968 Monitor 18' trailer, Dad backed the trailer into its parking spot,, which was a raised area 3 RR ties high that we had filled in to make a level area to store the rv. After unhooking the car, the kids were given orders to help Mom unpack the camper, while Dad was going to dump the tanks. (we had a little septic system for the RV in our yard)

As I come out of the house headed back to the RV to get another load, I observer Dad on his knees, face to face with the black water exhaust pipe, (the rv was 3 rr ties high in the parking spot, he was neiling on the lawn) hose hooked up to the dunping site below, and he pulled the lever. The huge suge hit (4 kids, 2 adults, 3 days camping) and the pressure swelled the hose, about 3.75 nano seconds later, the hose clamp holding the hose to the fitting failed!! A 4" stream of we all know what hit himdid perfectly, square in the face!!!

It was not okay to laugh about this for the first 4-5 years. There was paper stuck on his glasses, he was spitting,,,, a lot,,, and yep he smelled!

It's good to have children and pets to blame things on.......
