One more question - what is the best way to connect the PVC pipe to the actual tank drains? I see some people just duct tape it, but it doesn't look nice, and I may want to disconnect occasionally for a road trip still.
Hello,
I used fernco coupling. Allowed a little fudge factor as the drain did not line 100% also when the frost heaves the fitting would fall off rather than break the valve body off.

We don't have leagues in our campground but have been known to throw the bags till 4:00 am many a night. Set up our work lights and play in the road on one of the dead ends by the beach.

Well to say the least I am sad our campground called and they never got the water testing results back yet and can't open this weekend. The first time this has ever happened. Not happy at all but it is what it is. Hope fully the opening will not be delayed too long.

My dad. But I believe they said substitutes are allowed if one person can't make it for whatever reason.

Ours here inOhio opens the seasonal section May first but the overnight area is open year round,so we are paying to camp in the overnight section for the weekend en on Sunday move our camper up t the seasonal areas once it didn't sit on the site this past winter since we got it after the gates closed last season.

Cheap deck build

I have two questions.
1st. I have a seasonal site with no improvements. Looking to build a small deck for a low cost. Any ideas on building one.
2nd. What does everyone consider a reasonable distance to travel to their seasonal site.
Thanks for any input.

If the deck is larger than 4x8 I would build in 4x8 sections so if you move your site or leave it will be easier to move.

Our campground is about 1.5 hours from our house. We go most weekends and much more of a drive than that and we feel that Friday evening would be wasted.

X2 on building in 4'x8' sections. You can transport the sections in your truck and carriage bolt them together. We also drive 1hr 15 min to our site.
