I would have tried to stop them instead of taking their picture since the photo was taken from the front.

Last year I saw a 5th wheel dragging a Rhinoflex sewer hose down US 89/89A going the opposite direction in Arizona, smelled it too. They must have been doing it for a while as the nearest campground was probably 25 miles away.

I've seen that too with the hose wildly flaying behind the trailer.



I had a guy in a CG block my exit as he broke camp, when all he had to do was wait about 5 seconds until I drove by. So I sat and watched him secure his rig for several minutes. I failed to stop him when he finally drove off with the OTA proudly raised and pointing to the nearest broadcast antenna.

That's hard to imagine. I do a walk around even after dumping at a dump station, primarily because I've had doors open. I'll assume though this was after a stay at a site with connections, so that makes it even harder to imagine.

Are you sure there weren't also a power cord and water hose connected too? Were the steps down?

Im sure they learned a valuable lesson, aside from a little embarrassment.

I only saw the orange rhinoflex, no other hoses or cords. Though in odd coincidence a year earlier while driving the coach across east Texas on various back highways, I saw 2 other Rhinoflex hoses laying in the roadway about 100 or so miles apart. One was on a side road just off TX105 east of Navasota, the other was on US 190 just west of Woodville.

Anyone care to guess what they said when they went to get the sewer hose the next time to take a dump?
