Don't let that get out, 'stupid' is about the only thing we are not paying a tax on.

The first winter I had that cord plugged into the rv.. I ran over it with the snow blower. Now I have bright pink duct tape in strategic places on that cord (after having repaired cord).

I have drove away with cord plugged in on at least two of my rv's, I have run at least one cord over with snow blower last year and the plow guy cut it the year before. I have also pumped a gallon of antifreeze out the low points, two years in a row even after telling myself I would double check them. I winterized today and guess what? No problems went perfectly. Guess what that means? I missed something and come spring My coach will flood with water from a broken line.

Yup, Pumping Anti-freeze into your fresh water lines is a waste of Anti-Freeze all right. I mean you pump in air, under pressure, several times (to insure you get as much of the water out as you can) and if the air ever freezes.. You won't care about the damage to the RV.
(Yes that is a joke, You see if the air freezes.... You die).

Yep, 2 weeks ago, ours went too smooth as well. Today, I asked DH "did you remember to blow out the hose reel?". This is only our 2nd season with our recently installed hose reel. I forgot to pen that in on the checklist from last year. Now it's one more trip to storage with the air compressor to take care of that.

OK, my turn;
I drained everything then blew out the lines with compressed air, even the water fill line. Activated the onboard winterizing system, and it quickly consumed 2G pink stuff without reaching the faucets. I reviewed my process since this was the first time I've winterized in years. I had forgotten to move the water divertor from tank fill back to city water position. Now I have 2G pink stuff in the fresh water tank__

Can I blame that on old age? My DW said NO.

Ok my dumb is not on actual winterizing but happened yesterday during the process. Needed to get to the washer in the bedroom to disconnect water lines which required putting out the two slides. I'm running the generator during this as it is not plugged into shore power. Push the buttons to extend slides...nothing. Everything else is working. I spend ten minutes trying to figure out why slides wont work. DW pops in to see how I'm doing and I explain my puzzlement...everything's fine just the slides. And she looks at me and says, as only she can," it's because the engine is running". Yep!! I started the engine to turn on the gen...never turned it off. She turned it off...slides worked just fine. Gotta love a smart.,,, woman.

I've got to admit I've never done the snow blower one as we don't need them here. The rest........well, I've tried them all in my over 50 years of RV'ing!
