Omg. The wife and I have been laughing hard at your comments. Especially this one. Thank you for making me feel normal again.

I have to be honest, I took the TT out today to dump two door down as my neighbor has a dump hole on his lawn, and I backed in to my drive way first time and felt really confident. I felt like superman.

Now....back to the mods!! 😨😨😆😆

Matrix, how long was your trip ! We just back from a 4 day stay at our favorite local CG ( Crooked River )about 40 miles,

A good indicator ( that you will find yourself ) that you and a nice long trip, is when you return home and try to flush the toilet with your foot !!!

As I was backing into a tight sight with a pretty good incline at night, I stopped and asked the wife "Are we still clear?" She yells "All clear !!" I hit the gas and hear crunch on the front drivers side. I bashed in the hubcap with the camsite marker. Took the marker right out of the ground. Funny, it was inches from the RV and at least four feet high - she still didn't see it.

I'm still trying to convince her that she needs to see both sides of the rig when guiding me in - especially at night.

My lesson, I should have got out and looked around the rig myself before driving.

I did a 3 day trip to Paul Lake (Kamloops BC). It's 30 mins from us incase we had some major issues, wanted to be close to home for the maiden voyage.

I have so much to do in the house/yards/business yet I keep getting distracted with doing stuff on the RV. Lol. I must have the bug by now hey?

Omg that's depressing! Was it just the hub cap or did you break some outer skin?
