What one thing have you done related to RVing that you would never do again and would like to pass along a warning to others?

buying a TT too heavy for my old TV was a costly mistake.

Couldn't figure out why the slide suddenly slowed down, had I let go of the switch I wouldn't have ripped off the cupboard door! Luckily it was a $5 hinge and no lasting effect!!

Thinking the builder actually knew how to build the RV in the first place. Too much marginal material used.

Arriving after dark at a campground in Biloxi and finding out the railroad tracks were only 10' behind the bedroom wall two hours later. Boy, that'll wake you up!

Worst thing I ever did was not buy an RV sooner. Look at all the wasted time we could have been camping in an RV!

I closed my big living room slide from outside the coach after vacuum cleaning the carpet. Forgot about the vacuum setting right in front of the slide. It just crunched the vacuum, but good. It was a full sized Kenmore, my wifes pride and joy. I can tell you for sure those hydraulics on the slide have some power. Did not hurt the slide. I hurt for a week after she got done beaten on me with her broom.

When a sign says truck detour nothing over 8foot wide use the detour.. The gps isn't always right buy a new map every year.
