So many foolish people. This year's winners are:

This year's stupidity winners are:
First one was driving around campground in his class C with slides out and then parked as in pictures.
Second place goes to class A parked all weekend with rear end completely in air with not even chocking front wheels not that it should have even had rear wheels off the ground

Hard to know if it is ignorance or stupidity. Ignorance is curable, stupidity is not.

Zowie! You have got some winners there. I can't believe it. You should te them before they do irreparable damage their rig or someone else's let alone injuries.


Thanks,

advise

I have found people this stupid don't take too well to friendly advise. I wanted to find a state trooper to charge the A class driver with unsafe operation of a motor vehicle to start with. Perhaps he borrowed it from a friend. If that is the case I hope owner sees this post

The class A is on jacks, how would chocking the front wheels help?

Stop the coach from rolling with no brakes on the raised rear axel.

I have never had anyone that was new at Rving or didn't know what they were doing turn down help except once and she was polite about it. She just didn't want some MAN helping her so I left her alone! Only took her well over an hour to back her little trailer in from the wrong direction but then maybe she figured that out. I can only offer and people can either accept the help or they don't. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

After hosting a few years in a State Park I am very hesitant to offer help concerning hooking up or parking. One suggestion was answered with a reply indicating I didn't look smart enough to help him cause I was working as a lowly park host! I promptly set my rear down in my golf cart and watched him struggle as his DW gave him cussing after cussing!

Now I always ask if they need help before even getting out of cart, see many that have a long learning curve on backing!

How can it roll with frame mounted jack lifting the rear and the front?

It may fall off of that stack of chintzy cribbing, but its not going to roll with those four jacks down.

Those jacks are designed to provide vertical lift.. They are not designed to prevent movement either front to back side to side or .. other directions.

And at aroudn 600 bucks a pop, they make very expensive pretzles when the kind of wind that I endured, Just a couple hours ago, hits a motor home which is that high up on the jacks and pretzles them.

(NOTE: Did not pretzel mine, wheels DOWN and holding)

My husband emailed me this. It is title "Dead"

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
