Memorial Weekend parking the MH
. All set to back up DW and I have looked at the site and see what we need to avoid and where we want to put the rig. Only forgot to look at what was in front of the rig or what we might encounter while backing up. Pull forward and start to back up and looking at DW in mirror for signals. All of a sudden I here a crunch and bang. Stop - turn engine off- get out and look at right front bumper. We forgot to look for the other campsite marker post
. Almost took it out of the ground and torn off the clearance light on that side. Felt like a fool because they were watching and people behind me waiting for me
to back into spot. Fixed the post and had to buy the light on Monday.
Then on Monday we went to leave and MH wouldn't start. Dead starter battery. Tried emergency start didn't work, ran generator to charge batteries (no hookups at this site) ran for an hour no good
. Went to the site accross from us and the nice gentleman jumped us. Figured it was time to buy a new battery. Went to take out the battery and low and behold we had some sort of switch on negative cable. Never seen one. So took battery out and placed on charger. Took picture of switch and went to NAPA store (they know us real well)
and asked what it was. A knife switch to flip when MH is in storage. Explained what MH did and he said if not fully ingaged it will not start the coach. Apparently so. Next day put battery back threw switch and guess what
MH turned over like new.
Who would have thunk.
