ALL full hookup sites share water and power pedestal but not sewer. BRING Sewer supports as most are NOT at ground level and you will have a big "U" in your hose if you don't support it.

Water and 30 amp only sites (about 600 sites) do not need Ys but will need adapters for 50 amp coaches.

I could be wrong, but I don't recall many 50 amp sites (even the full hookup ones). BRING POWER ADAPTERS. 30 amp campers should be prepared to use a 50 if there is one and you get put there.

BRASS ONLY as the plastic ones break due to the hose weight
You need to be careful when using brass fittings. You have to make sure that they have a low lead content or the lead can leach into the water supply, which is not a good thing.

How about some of us each "make" a hose pigtail out of an older 3/4" water hose long enough to reach from the spigot to to the ground? That way all of our Y's will be on the ground and we won't have to worry about how much weight that first Y on the spigot will hold.

They do have 30 amp and 50 amp sites, I know that all the 200 # section they had both in the panel. I'm almost positive on that, I think I used a 50 with a 30 amp dogbone last year..... It even shows on Iggys map the 50 amp sites.

Yeah it is! And here is a Aerial photo taken at the rally last year -- this was with ~500 Rigs -- imagine what another 200 or so rigs are gonna add to that!
