Print it out, fill it out and then scan it back into your email.

No worries!

1) Disconnect in the large parking lot (if empty)

2) If we are stacked up in the parking lot you can easily disconnect as you wait

3) Disconnect prior to arrival (at a gas stop or in a shopping center perhaps)

4) If you get jammed up and none of the above works for you we can stop on the way to your site and you can disconnect there. This is not a great option for Sunday though as we will be very busy.

As noted in the email, everyone PLEASE dump empty before arrival; betting you will get a sewer connection is a bad bet. As noted, there ARE dump stations at the Fairgrounds but it will add almost 30 minutes to get you parked and we need to park a rig every 5 minutes to get everyone in on Sunday.

For the most part, once you are parked you are there for the duration so plan on that and everything will be fine.

As stated before:

1) If you have a 50 amp rig, you will most likely need to plug into a 30 amp supply. BRING an adapter. There may or may not be one within 100 miles.

2) There are many sewer connections that require A LOT OF SEWER HOSE. Bring enough hose to go 40 feet (or more) if needed. There may or may not be one within 100 miles. Some connections require the hose to be run back under the camper. Bring something to lift the hose off the ground. Some sewer inlets are 8 -12 inches off the ground.

3) Bring BRASS fresh water hose splitters with shutoffs. some hose bibs feed 8 campers. PLastic ones just don't cut it and a break at 3 AM will ruin everyone's day. First one to connect PLEASE use a splitter so you don't get your water shut off during a shower. If you bring a manifold, everyone will love you for it. Yea, I know brass fittings "may" contain lead. Man up, the romans used lead pipes for 1000 years.

4) Plenty of fresh water hose too (2 - 25 foot hoses).

5) a 50 or 30 amp rated extension cord would be helpful.

Obviously you won't need everything listed here, but some sites will require one or more of them.

Service requests are just that, Requests to have repairs done to your rig. Priority goes to safety issues and repairs that would have bern covered under warranty whether or not you are still under warranty. Some have requested add on type things ie slide out awnings or chair upgrade etc. These items will cost you and are low priority so they may or may not get done. There is a lot of great info in this thread, it is worth the time to skim through it.

This is a great idea.
I will consolidate and make a closed sticky with the best tips in the morning.
