Maybe - but not everyone returns here every day. Maybe he's out learning the difference between fresh water tank and black tank [emoticon]

Same thought here... Kind of like the Snake Repellent post.

Some disgruntled former member that got booted off and periodically creates a new profile to post odd things to see how much of other people's time they can waste.

Maybe it's legit, who knows. But the limited details and no return is a red flag. I mean, if you took the time to create a profile and ask a question about a serious issue, wouldn't you provide a lot more details and then return to see if there was help?

Moderators are really good at censoring and removing posts they have an issue with, why isn't the system set up so that the first post of any new member goes directly to the mods?

Oh well, not worth getting worked up over, it's just an RV forum.

It could easily be legit. Beginners make alot of mistakes. I'm sure many here have done some odd things!

I've seen the following at RV resorts multiple times.
Open the black tank valve before hooking up the sewer hose.
Forget to put stabilizers down on a pop up tent trailer, then crawl into bed.
Using a Flush King type device with both it's valve and sewer valve closed.
Driving away with antenna still up.
Not moving all items out of the way before retracting slide.
Leaving tank valve open when driving away. Anything still in tank from not being level now comes out.
Driving off with steps or stabilizers down.
Getting stuck on curvy roads with signs that say 3 or more axles not allowed.

Time for you to do some reading on basic RVing. I’ve never seen a new RV with a black tank flush that wasn’t very clearly marked.
Put yourself in the OP's shoes - finds an RV forum to ask about an issue he's having and gets responses like this bozo. Stop scratching your heads wondering why he's not coming back or if it is a scam post.


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

Just make sure you’ve got separate hoses for each!

I think it could be and likely is a legitimate issue. Could easily happen. Sorta funny but not for the poor guy that it happened to. Either way, it brought a real possibility to the forefront and we all had a chuckle and the OP's expense.

Driving off without unplugging the shore power cord!
Pulling out, leaving the camping partner in the bathroom.
Fail to remove wheel chalks.
Roll up the manual awning then flipping the lock lever (parachute deploys soon after hitting the road).

The list goes on.
