All bottled up! A hilarious story of an RVing newbie…


Steve Korsvall posted this hilarious story on our RV Advice Facebook page. We’re sure you’ll chuckle as much as we did.

Here’s what he wrote: “We were jetting out the holding tanks of a 5th wheel of a guy that just got this RV six months earlier. He complained it was compacted. Well, in cleaning it, all of a sudden a 6 oz. bottle comes out with the cap still on it. I said to this new-to-RV-camping person. ‘What is this bottle doing in your tank?’ He said with a straight face, ‘Well, the salesman told me to put the whole bottle into the tank.’
For you newbies out there…
Take bottle out of box. Take cap off bottle. Pour contents of bottle into tank and throw bottle into trash can…
Happy trails”

Oh dear… if the person Steve was writing about is reading this right now, we’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you (right??).

We were in Monterey CA. when a guy back in beside me. Two men get out one about 30yrs and one about 50 ish.
I am setting up my sewer hose on the Sidewinder sewer hose supports. The young guy watches me set it up then says what is that for and the old guy said Poop doesn’t flow up hill.


True or not, everything going on considering, I take the good laugh X2 with Dan’s comment!


That’s twice this week that I came near wetting myself! The first was when the clerk at the grocery ask this little lady if she wanted her milk in a bag and she straight faced said “ no thank you, it’s handier if you just leave it in the bottle”! You can bet I’m going to use that line very next time I buy milk.


Most bottles clearly state to open and pour contents into the tank. He doesn’t read, apparently.

No, I’m laughing AT him. Hope he doesn’t have children!

Very simple, it is a cute story but I do not believe it is true.


Wonder if a step by step picture of instructions would have helped, lol!

Nope … we’re laughing AT him! What he did (supposedly) is not even an adult logical thing to do. And he has a DRIVER’S LICENSE?! 😲Yikes!

You can’t fix STUPID.


And they are out there on the road right now.
