We leave ours open and are lucky we have a roof over ours. But we do run them in a couple times during the season just to help keep the seals in shape. We plan on traveling when we retire too so when looking for a site make sure you can easily get your camper in and out.

We leave slides open and also have X-chocks between the tires and strong arms. But we also have 6 sets of blocks under the 34' frame to help stabilize as well. I think you will find that it's not as much work as it sounds to get the blocks under there and level things out when you put your trailer back in. We have pulled ours out at times, and it never seems to be much of an issue to reset everything when we put the trailer back in her home.

The advantages of a seasonal site for us makes it all worthwhile. We've been seasonal for 8 years (3rd campground) and have met some of the nicest people and have formed lasting friendships with some too. For us, the first campground ended up being just too far to travel on a Friday night after work, the 2nd one was too sandy and too much pine, but we are now in our 3rd season at the latest, and love everything about it. So it took 3 moves, but seasonal camping is a good lifestyle fit for us at this time. And yes, 10 minutes set up and clean up before you leave sure beats hours of work at the start & end of your weekend camping trip!

Thanks for the replys everyone. We go Fathers Day weekend to check out the campground. I have a close friend that has a site there and they talk very highly about it so I see no reason we wouldn't like it.

Dear Seasonals...Maybe this was addressed and I missed it. This is our first year seasonal and so far I love it. The only thing we're not so sure about is leaving the fridge on while we are home. We purchased a "mini fridge" which we keep in the basement for things that will stay good from weekend to weekend (condiments, etc). My husband is leery about leaving the inside fridge on all the time. He says if it was a residential type he would be fine but...Any thoughts?

Set it on "auto" so it will run on propane or electric, and let it run. Ours stays on from April to Oct without any issues. I would trust the RV fridge over the mini fridge simply because it has the propane back up if the electric ever goes out. Just one mans opinion.

We keep ours on from April to October too. Like Don said at least you have the comfort of propane backup in case the campground loses power.

What are his worries with leaving the fridge on? Does he think it is going to wear out quicker? Does he think it will start a fire or something? Maybe if we understood his concerns we could give fact for or against.
