Just driven off a campsite with the EHU attached. Only mitigating factor was a planned power cut at the campsite. Prior to leaving I looked at the control panel, saw no indication of electrons, assumed I had put away the cable and set off.

I try and walk around the van before starting off, just to check we’ve picked up all our stuff and any rubbish, closed all windows and lockers. So far so good. But I guess past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future!,,

Like pilots do before taking off

I'm obviously far better at cock ups than any of you. Done all those some more than once.

Ah the benefits to not using ehu or levelling ramps :)
I've on occasion left the tv Ariel up but it's only 150mm height difference so no biggy..

We have indoor and outside pre flight checks. I do the outside and walk around then double check inside cupboards. Brenda double checks my jobs. Between us it works well

Mine was in temper when a Dutch women decided to light a blooming bbq right next to my gas locker! Didn’t want to burn her tent! Mine was Steadies. I stomped off to reception to get relocated, threw myself in the cab, all the time hubby just watching! Got a few feet, had to stop to retract them! Felt a real toot.

Same as @Lenny HB

Started to back up the drive and saw in the wing mirror Yvette yelling and waving her arms in the air and thought I was getting to close to the guttering on our bungalow so swung away a bit as I heard the ominous twang of the EHU lead parting company from the van. :oops:

How many times have I set off with a hab locker door, bathroom door or drawer open......too many

Listening to the slam, slam until I 'have to stop'......the worst is the cutlery drawer

I've done that when nipping to the fridge for a beer. Have to be quick at traffic lights before they change. It's much easier when the missus is with me, so that she can go for me :)

This thread reminded me of a silly tanker driver who drove off with 30 feet of hose and a pump on large wheels still attached, the whole issue was swinging wildly on the cobbled road and he didnt stop until he had reached the dock gate .

I did it leaving home on holiday once and realised 5 miles up the road and just as I was about to make it into a lay-by a lorry caught me up and drove over it breaking it in two!

Over 25 year's
I left the wife in a services once when we had our first van many years ago I got out for a pee and she was asleep in the back.
I got back in the van happely driving along when I looked in the mirror no wife.
That was abut two hrs after my toilet brake.
It was a long time before I was forgiven.
