I will take and help while backing in a tight spot, but I feel confident I can put it where it needs to be. I just take my time. I have found in my limited experience the posters have been awesome on this site. I even have new campers asking me questions occasionally. Watching campers can be a hoot, kinda like watching a boat owners first voyage at the boat ramp. I have been lucky usually I have found helpful people while camping. But I have seen some sites.

Well said. As for handling the slinky with bare hands isn't bad either, the outside of the hose doesn't have the stuff on the outside, at least mine doesn't. I don't touch the surfaces that have had stuff on them.

conceptumator - what is the bleach to water ratio you use in your spray bottle? That is a great simple idea, thanks for sharing.

Help us please.... DH has switched the size of our TV & getting our trailer in often ruins the first couple hours on site. Have sent him to every site I can think of on how to get in to the site & have (gently) reminded him that the same way he pulled out is the way he should have originally backed in. We are often the entertainment y'all pull up the chair & beer to watch. Next time invite me for a beer so I can just watch too

I get a seemingly endless supply of latex gloves from my job. We use them a lot there and I stockpile them especially for camping. Use them twice, once at work then camping and then throw them away!

I use the 3-1 ratio on my bleach water. 3-water 1 bleach.Just remember that it doesn't kill bacteria instantly. I spray both ends of my hose when I put them together before storing too. I use the spray every time on the hose bib. I never forget after seeing a guy at Cherry Hill in DC use the hose bib to rinse out his sewer hose at the camping spot. Ran water all over that end of the camp ground.I did say something to him and got the deer in the head light look and was told to go do something that is physically impossible.

last week I saw a camper trying to back his tv and camper around a tight corner with his weight dist bars still on. I was on phone -it was 9pm making a terrible sound of course so I ended my call which I couldnt hear anyways and went over and suggested he take his bars off. I told him I used to pull in to cg take off bars while dw went to the office.I showed him how to take bars easily. he thanked me and brought me a beer the next afternoon.
