I guess the Sea Breeze MH was wanting to be in the sea. I think thinks like this happen all the time. It has happened to me also. I was lucky, no damage to my unit.

Okay, so maybe the brakes failed. But I'd think this thing has an automatic transmission. What? Did he forget to put it into park??? Unless he was parked on a really step grade, the transmission should have kept it from rolling....

My thoughts exactly! And how much time passed between when he "parked" the motorhome and got out of it to walk his dog? He didn't sense the motorhome moving slowly towards the Pacific?

I wonder what the motorhome looked like after the tow truck dragged it back over the "sharp rocks"...

This happened very close to where we live and we cannot figure out how it happened at all! We would also like to have seen the motor home after it was retrieved. Understand it took several hours and probably a HUGE bill!
