Dog accidentally changes gears, sending motorhome rolling into lake

5

This is an RV horror story of just about the worst kind. As a man unhooks his fishing boat from his motorhome on the boat ramp, his dog inside somehow manages to bump the RV into reverse, sending the big Class A rolling into the water.

The motorhome is stopped within a few seconds, but by then it has already taken in enough water to turn the inside rear of the RV into a big bathtub.

Keep an eye on the video to see when the backup lights turn on. That’s when the trouble begins.

Why not put blocks under the wheels, turn off engine and set brakes. There are many people who have done this with their pickups and Class A’s. In a big rush to catch a BIG FISH. Looks to me that the fish are winning, SUCKER!!!

Second time this week I’ve seen things that could have been avoided with the use of the emergency brake. m

It is normal when launching a boat to leave the vehicle running! His emergency brake system did not work however – and that made it dangerous. (Chev-GM AutoPark?). He also has a “push button” selector on the transmission. Further, he has not only 1 – but two Dalmatian dogs. As a former Dalmatian owner I can tell you rambunctious and curious, loving – and not being left behind are traits. Simple for the dog to put a foot on the selector!
Who would’ve thot……?

Why was the vehicle running and WHY weren’t the parking brakes Set?

Another “Stupid is as Stupid Does Moment”!
