Last trip of 2014 season in November, we had family of 4 pull in next to us with their first camper, fresh from their PDI that morning, and excited as could be! Only about a dozen campers in the CG so late in the season, and most of us were in the riverfront sites. Anyway, seemed to be very nice folks, but DW and I were on our way out for a day trip. Came back around dinnertime and we were inside preparing to cook when out of nowhere it sounded like a bomb went off! DW likes to tell it that I flew out the door with sidearm drawn, but you betcha I flew out to see what the **** was going on.
Our new neighbors were out of their camper in a panic, children screaming and crying, and neighboring campers joined me in asking if it was propane and if there's fire. Family didn't know exactly what happened but said the whole camper shook violently! Saw no signs of flames or odor of gas and we began looking around their camper. Well, their new camper had the furnace exhaust out the rear wall and next to the hot water heater. I will give you 3 guesses where the dealer decided to bolt on the spare tire carrier?!?
