I drove up today to get some things done. Checked tire air pressure, hooked up shore power, put slides out, hooked up sewer hose, wiped down cabinet shelves, drawers, countertops, used leaf blower under camper, swept floor, vac carpet, and a bunch of other little stuff. It was hard to leave and come home. Water gets turned on next weekend so I'll hook up water hose, filter, regulator then. There is light at the end of the tunnel .

Have fun Wiscampsin!!! Almost there!
Good Luck Reale with the Satellite hook up. We have Wi-Fi for computers here, and only antennae for TV. We get six channels. Most of the time have to go to a sports bar to watch the Tigers' games. Go Tigers!

CG opens next week and I can't wait. Been a long winter!!!! Do want to remind people that to make sure the sites they pick out will accomodate their rv's before signing the paper !. Several new people moved in last year and when they brought their rv's out the space was too small. We're also allowed to have roofs over our rv's & decks and there were 1 or 2 that found out the hard way the roof was too short for the camper. Not easy to raise a roof.

^^^ or lower a camper. At our place owner will take a 100' tape measure along when showing prospective renters available sites. To his surprise many don't even know how long their camper is.

It's very easy to lower a camper, you just need to go fast enough!

storage "mod"

Our shed's too full, so we built this 70" x 30" x 32" box that slides under our campsite deck for extra storage. It is made with all treated wood, galvanized, or stainless hardware. We've planning a second, both rear facing.

Casita Screenhouse

These are really popular where we are seasonal. Hard-framed screenhouse with an actual door. Most people put them on a wood deck or patio-tiled surface. I want to get one later this season or next season at the latest. Sam's club has the best prices. The ad says to take them down in winter, but most people keep the frame up and only take down the roof.

Are they popular elsewhere?

I have seen quite a few of them at out Recreational Community. Our association also requires that the fabric be taken down from December 1st through April 1st. They look pretty nice.
