We have our own set of bad luck issues. We do not need another set.

The "Man Camper" is like that. You have to manually fill the bowl which my husband doesn't like. Our Scamp's fill automatically. It is probably designed that way so that when you forget to empty the water in the bowl before you take off you don't have a swimming pool when you arrive. Did that with the Scamp. Blue stuff everywhere!

I actually try to learn lots of these things from experience, just not MY experience.

I actually read my manual like my mamma always told me to. It mentioned that in the manual but when I tried it, my toilet doesnt do it...

Ok I am going to confess a true DUH moment. Plugged the motorhome into shore power when I arrived at the campsite on our maiden voyage. Forgot to kill the generator. Last MH had an auto transfer switch but the new one did not. Went to leave to a new campsite and fired up the genset. No power. Opened the compartment and checked it out. Figured it was the breakers. Flipped them both ways and one way said on the other said off. So I flipped them In the direction of off. Now I am well versed in electronics but I was obviously not firing on all cylinders this day. I flipped them off back on back and could not figure it out. Well I moved campsites and it took me half the next morning to diagnose the problem.

I was flipping in the direction of on and that then displayed off on the breaker. The indicator was not the direction to move the breaker it was the state of the breaker. So I kept turning it off and wondered why there was no power. This was a difficult confession to the wife who almost fell out of her chair.

Taz, do you know how many people you just confessed to? Don't worry, we've all done something worst than that.

LOL... I had the hardest time explaining it but I felt like such a moron when I realized what I was doing.

I've had this MH since June 2011, last night I noticed (for the first) 2 fluorescent fixtures, one over the dinette and one over the sofa. In my defense the there are so many pocket light fixture never needed to look for more light.

Mine has mood lighting over the cabinets and they showed me where the switch was durinf the walkthrough. Well, I forgot it had its own switch and was convinced they were broken because they didnt activate when I turned on the other lights...

Had our MH for about a year and had to replace the gasket between the upper and lower halves of the toilet, so looked in the manual to get a part number and there I saw on one of the pages, "Lift pedal to add water to bowl." Ta-Daaaa.
When we bought it I couldn't get one of the ceiling lights near the front door to work, new bulbs didn't help, finally someone told me there was probably another switch for it next to the door. Yup.
