Several years ago my NorCold 1200 recall box went bad. Jumped around it to affirm bad box and get the refrigerator usable. Sent the bad box to NorCold and they replaced.

Latest OOPS:

We just switched from DP to truck and 5th wheel.

Backing my 5er into its spot for the first time, I had my neighbor guide me in. He left, I got out to assess my position and noted that I was too close on one side to put the slides out. I thought, "I don't need his help again for this small manouver". So I put one of my chock blocks over about a foot to the right and thought "I just need to pull out and then back up against the chock block and voila"!
I pulled out and backed up. Thought I was in the right spot and backed till I stopped.
I got out and looked.
I stopped alright! Right up against my rock retaining wall and bent my rear ladder under the 5er. I guess I hit the chock block on the edge and because I have a gravel pad, it simply rolled the chock block out of the way.
No body damage, just damage to the ladder and my ego!.
I pulled forward, went back and pulled the ladder back into some visible look of straightness and went on line to see where I could get a new ladder!

However, it doesn't end there....

The following weekend we had planned our maiden voyage to the hot springs.

Getting on the ferry, I was a bit worried about my hitch on the back of the 5er as with the steep drop to the ferry landing and rise to get on the ferry, I thought it might scrape a bit.
Slowly I negotiated the entry....almost on....then an eery scrape at the last few feet. It only lasted a second and I looked at my wife and said "We're On" and both rejoiced with the thought!

I go to get out of the truck to view the scenery and just as I shut the door and turn around there's a fellow standing in front of me and says "I think this might be yours" and hands me the bottom 4' section of my rear ladder!

We laughed and I thanked him and said "I probably didn't need that anyways" and threw it in the back of the truck.

Sounds like the ladder was doomed from the get go. That's probably why the retaining wall jumped out and hit it in the first place.

I had a similar experience with a concrete pillar this spring in Williams, AZ that jumped right out and dented two of my basement doors while pulling in to fuel up. I could see daylight in my mirror between the pillar and the MH and all of a sudden, the pillar just jumped.
