RV boo-boos – Fifth-wheel turned into pretzel

There’s little we can say about this series of pictures, other than to just emit a sigh. Apparently the fiver driver was making a left turn into an RV park. While he waited his turn, the driver behind him wasn’t paying attention. Unfortunately, that driver was driving a semi. Pretzels are best left in the bar, not on the roadway.

Link doesn’t work
Maybe you should copy and paste the image.

I have to pause my Nord VPN to see some items but that did not help for this article.

Bad day. Know on my Alpine MH I added nice looking led strip lights on the tail end up above the regular lights tied to running and turn signals to give more visibility and above the toad. May not make a big difference in the day time but at night certainly stood out. If the vehicle behind is not paying attention may not matter anyway. Now have a small trailer and plan to add some extra on there given factory lights are marginal.

Sorry, Tommy, and others. I’m not a member of Instagram, either, and I don’t have any trouble viewing the photos in the RV boo-boos. I don’t know why a few of our readers have trouble seeing the pictures. This is what Jessica, one of our IT folks, said regarding our polls not opening up for some readers, and maybe it would apply in this instance, as well: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” I hope that helps. Have a great day! 😀 –Diane, the “computer idiot,” at RVtravel.com

Hi, Bob. I’m not a member of Instagram, or any other social media sites (except FB for work). But I don’t have any problem seeing the pictures in the RV boo-boos posts. I wonder why some folks do and some folks don’t have problems with it. Maybe their security settings are set higher? Here’s what Jessica, one of our IT folks, said regarding Polls not showing up for some folks, and maybe it would apply to other sites: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site.

That semi drivers insurance company is going to have big claim payout. Probably both the trailer and truck are totaled.

Agree, I wouldn’t want that truck after this accident. Frame has to be twisted.
