Stupid is as Stupid Does ....

This was posted on the Thor forum and I found it amusing to say the least....

"Had I not watched this with my own eyes I would no have believed it.

Camping last Friday and a rental RV pulls in across the way from us with two couples in it. After watching them try to back in for a few minutes Myself and another camper offered to help. We were told to mind out own business....okay sorry for intruding have a nice day, stop over for a beer later if you like, just trying to be friendly.

So back at my site, guy next to me and I grab a cold one and sit back to watch the show.

Finally get it backed in after 20 minutes. One gentlemen puts on gloves and proceeded to hook up to the sewer. Not sure what the issue is but he hooks up the freshwater hose and proceeds to wash out the sewer hose by placing the freshwater hose 2-3 feet inside and shakes and swirls it around. Gotta make sure those sewer hoses are clean. He then shoves the hose up the sewer connection on the rig a foot or two with the valve open to clear that out. Water flowing all over the ground.

I think we all know what's coming next......

wait for it.............

He hooks the same freshwater hose right up to the RV city water input. Takes off his gloves and with the job well done, heads inside. I'm sur for a nice clean glass of water.....

Sometimes people make this stuff up, post it in different places and this is how urban legends are born. Not saying that this is what happened here, but it could have.

That's very true, but, I have seen some folks out there myself that were pretty short on camping/RV knowledge.


We were in West Glacier KOA years ago, when I noticed a couple in a MH rental. They were having trouble.
I asked if I could help and they commenced to telling me all their trouble. I don't remember all of it, but one of the things that stuck in my mind was they didn't know how to work or use the fridge, or the furnace. They had purchased an ice chest and was trying to keep their food in that.
I lit their fridge and showed them how to keep it running on ac or gas.
Some what in their defense, the rental agency hadn't shown them anything about that unit.
This was their dream trip of a life time. Neither one of them had ever RVed before.

There is a huge learning curve when it comes to RVs. And you never stop learning.

Not the first time I have heard or seen something like that.

Was at a state park sitting outside the trailer watching some weekend warriors trying to get an older travel trailer backed into a spot. After about 15-20 minutes they decided to drive around to the other road and drive through the trees and make it a pull through. It gets better, after unhooking the truck one of the guys pulls out a 24" level and puts it to the side of the trailer to check the level from side to side and then proceeds to set it on the step of the trailer to check level from front to back. After they finished a couple of beers they figured the trailer was level and then proceeded to unload. The back of the truck had a refrigerator a small freezer, a grill and the kids bikes. The trailer had about a truck load of fire wood inside it that had to be removed before they could get into the trailer. Both my wife and I just had to shake our heads watching them pull log after log out of that trailer and some were probably a good 4'-5' long. Then watching one of the ladies sweep out all the bark and dirt out of the trail made both of us just cringe!

I was camping at the beach one year and this younger couple backed at TT next to us and started setting up in the dark. I thought I would be nice so I turned on my Scare lights so they would have light. About 20 minutes later I heard a knock at the door. I opened it and there stood the young couple. The guy said " Could you turn off those lights, their bothering us". I said really, I turned them on so you could see. I shut the door. About two hours later I turned them off.
