Took a short trip last weekend. Enroute had to make an abrupt stop--thought nothing of it. An hour later, when arriving at our destination my wife noticed wet carpets by the bathroom. Checking further she informed me that the toilet bowl was full to the brim with water. What happened was I keep the black bag in the washer closet in front of the toilet. The abrupt stop caused it to fly forward and jam under the foot lever. This in turn caused the bowl to fill without opening the drain--emptied my water tank. Just thought I'd pass on a good reason to leave the pump switch off while traveling or keep the black bag somewhere else.

OUCH!!

We've decided to start keeping the black bag on the passenger seat up front when we go to bed...That way if someone comes in the door in the middle of the night I'll just whack 'em with it....Ought to do the trick!!

(Actually,the bag is a great idea from Winnebago to keep all the pertinent info in one place, just havin' a lil fun!)

What a crazy thing to happen!

While it is a problem storing that "infamous" WGO Blackbag, there's no doubt that it's a great way to store all the information and manuals.

I actually started a small three ring binder that I added to the black bagg with the various "fix it" and "helpful" tips from this forum.

I'm luck, I can store mine behind the curb side couch.

Great story Flyer! LOL !
We keep ours in the cabinet above the couch, in the big slide. But it's getting heavy, maybe 12 pounds now (?!!!), and I may start looking for a lower place for it to live. Possibly under the dinette seat.

I have a Journey 32T and put my black bag on the floor between the cabinet and the head of the bed on the curb side of the MH. That is "dead" space and out of the way.

This is a great idea. You could also tell the theif it's the DW's purse and hand it to them out a window. As the theif is trying to drag it off in the dark you will have time to call 911 and time for the police to arrive.

We keep ours on the left side of the drivers seat but maybe it should be moved. I can now see the bag could slide forward and into the motor home brake or gas pedels.

Thanks!
