on the brighter side

I purchased this little gem a week ago today.
It hadn't been used for 3 years and needed a thoroough clean up including the potty.
I had never used one let alone see one.
I attempted to drain it by taking the cap off the outside drain. A little bit of water drained out, must have been seepage. I spotted a little handle and tried pulling it. No luck nothing moved. Got out the wd40 and sprayed it a bit.
Still no luck. I figured this lever had to do something so got rid of the pail as it was in the way. I gace a couple of good strong yanks and s_ _ _ came flying out and I was right there. Will know better next time!!

Sorry. It's called a learning process.But you may have saved someone else doing the same thing. Public Education at work and no tax dollars involved.

Trailering mistakes

Hey, Jim :wave

Sorry to disappoint you, but if you think you're the only one that's done things like this, check this out.

BTW, these are only the ones that are admitted to. Believe me, there are countless other stories that have gone untold.

Welcome to trailering. ;)

Jim ... been there, done that ... and still do it.

Not too long ago, I hooked up the sewer hose, not realizing the little nubbin that holds it tightly to the drain had broken ... so when I pulled the lever, I filled my shoes when the hose broke away.

I stand back a little farther when I pull the lever these days!
