Lauren Ball, who hails from Cherry Valley, Calif., has been RVing in a motorhome since 2009. She shares this boneheaded story:
We hooked up our toad (towed vehicle) and forgot to release the emergency brake. We dragged it until the next stop before we discovered the problem.
Lesson learned: We made a checklist for the steering wheel of the toad as well as the motorhome. And we tend to double-check each other in our departure preparations.
