Our first week with the new fiver, DH did this. Luckily I was inside monitoring the water levels on the light up panel, so it didn't get that far!

Out came the Sharpie pen, and a diagram was drawn on the inside of the door to the valve station. Hasn't happened since!

So how long before the Love of Your Life spoke to you? I mean in normal terms, regular volume, and minus the colorful sailor terminology? It would have been DAYS at my campsite!

I would have been buying MK, Prada, Gucci, or Coach bags to make up for it but I usually check this stuff myself so at that point she would have taken photos and onto FB they go.

That makes sense. I never thought about it, but I would imagine bars could interfere with the turning radius. My biggest gripe is narrow roads in RV parks. We park our TT in my parents RV park lot (they have a little apartment they live in). You only have about one foot on either side if you are in the center. Thanks for your comment.

Jekyll Island is not a state campground any longer even though most of the island is a state park. We picked our site (a nice, long pull-through) on line. Our neighbors weren't the greatest. One bunch kept walking through our site to get to the woods behind us to get firewood. Had to bite my tongue to not say something ugly but they finally got the message and stopped.
That's when I tie the dog out and let her do the talking.

If anyone happens to find themselves in Kettletown State Park in Danbury, CT this weekend and sees a moron trying to crowbar a TT into a space thatís not meant for something that big, PLEASE help.
That's about 30 minutes from where I live, good luck trying to get anything in there, you'll be lucky to get a pop-up in there. There's only one state park that can take that size and that's Hammonasset.

good looking trailer and camp site all you need to make it perfect is a set of old coots brackets and Turbs poles for your awning and you would truly be styling. lol

I donít think I couldíve picked a more unleveled campsite if I tried. I had my leveling blocks stacked 4 high under each tire and the trailer tongue almost touching the ground.
