We were on the first trip in our new to us fiver. Tenting and sleeping in the back of my pickup had been the norm for me but my new bride wanted something more substantial. Got everything hooked up and...no shore or 12V power. What da he double hockey sticks? After messing around discovered the hard to reach breakers on the power post were shut off. (I discovered later the fuse on the house battery charge circuit was blown.) O.K., now everything is in order and we can go to bed. Rats, toilet won't flush
I never thought to check the waste tanks, the previous owner hadn't dumped them. GRRRRR. Wife resorted to using a juice jug as she was not about to get dressed for the hike to the wash rooms, she was most unhappy.
We managed to remain calm during the weekend and got ready to pull out Monday morning. As I was unhooking the shore power I noticed a white pipe sticking out of the ground. Oh for bleeps sake. The stupid thing was the neighbor had his slinky out and I never picked up on it. I heard about that one for some time.
