I know we all have bad days BUT------ A camper pulled in along me this weekend. As he disconnected his truck he pulled away without disconnecting his safety chains jerking it off the tongue shoring and knocking his wife and daughter in the camper to the ground. I went over to help and he said it was not his day. He said he also overheated on the way because when he had the truck serviced the day before they failed to secure the radiator cap. Using the leveling jacks to raise the tongue worked utill the trailer rolled forward because the wheels were not chocked bending the fwd jacks. Finally used a 20 ton jack to get up. Not finished----- A bit later I saw them struggling with a problem with the awning. As I walked over the man had both hands up doing something and his paints fell down.
I must give him credit for how calm he was during the hole ordeal. I would have been cussing at the least.

I feel sorry for the fellow. These things have happen to all of us due to being in a hurry and not double checking things out.
