Hopefully the pump/water line is not the problem. I'm going back to Omemee this long weekend and try to observe it and look for any leaks again but this time I'll leave it on all day. If it still does it, I'll just turn it off when not in use. Since my rig has 7 years bumper to bumper warranty, I'll have them fix it on my yearly checkup for the fridge.

Thank you all for the information regarding this issue.

Wow we had freezing rain today and it was cold this weekend in Toronto, hopefully the following weekends will be sunny and warm.

Happy Spring Camping!

I got my new toy I ordered several weeks ago, Bal leveler. Any pointers on do and don't using this gadget? I'll get to test it out on my next trip.

I just tested the BAL leveler I ordered. It is so easy to use and it doubles as a roll stopper:

Use bike cable lock so BAL does not walk away

Here is the link where I got it http://m.sportsmansguide.com/Product.aspx?a=74223&tab=1

I just got back from Omemee where I get to enjoy the outdoors and learn more about camping with my A128S plus the gadgets I got for it. The place was full of mosquitoes and where I parked it was too narrow for the screen room, I miss my screen room. Going in and out the trailer invited several bugs in and they had a good time biting/eating me when I slept, so the first night was a bad bad night. Second night I slept with my bug protection outfit and had a better sleep.

I'm glad I had this outfit with me, behind me is swamp land means millions of bugs. I'm thinking of bringing a vacuum to get rid of the bugs that gets inside. I got bug stains all over my rig from swatting them...lol

I had to use a rubber hammer to get it through because the grass and ground was blocking the BAL leveler. This is worth having for tight situation like this and see how much adjustments was required.

My screen room replacement, a tall post in the middle makes a perfect mini shed

My next trip will be several weeks from now so I decided to park my trailer here. A two layer cover, soft plastic inside for the windows and a tarp to cover the whole trailer. I took the battery fuse out and left my toy there:

See how much backing I had to do to get there. I get a lot of practice here and doing it solo makes a real challenge. I still have problems backing up straight, I make hundreds of corrections by going forward, any tips here.

Last summer I tried out one of those Thermacell area mosquito repellants for the first time. I found it to be very effective and many others here seem to agree:
ThermaCELL Area Mosquito Repellant

One might be a worthwhile investment for you. They're not overly expensive but the refill cartridges can start to add up if you use it a lot.

I would take the advice about dealing with mosquitoes from someone from Manitoba seriously!

Good idea to have ThermaCELL in my RV kit. They sell it in Canadian Tire for $33 unit and refill for $30. Here is the spec:

Not cheap but greeting rid of bugs in a 15x15 area, priceless.
Is that 48 hrs per cartridge or total for 4?

My friend drop by to his property, no shirt, bugs all over him and he was just smiling watching me scratching all over my body. He said, give it time and you'll get use to it....lol...NOT

I plan to use this before setting up my screen room...bugs begone...Worst case scenario before opening the rig...

Unfortunately, that's a total (also a maximum) of 48 hours for 4 cartridges.

Once I backed into a campsite, I would have mine in hand when I exited the T/V. I'd light it and set down near the camper (usually on the site's picnic table if there was one) before I did anything else.

Maybe I was just very lucky but in all the territory I covered last year, I do not recall once ever having a real problem with bugs.

I'll let you know when I go back to Omemee. I hope it works because wearing the bug outfit is no fun.

Anyone use this smaller version bug off?

The weather this weekend is not great for camping so I decided to skip Omemee and booked 2 nights in Sibbald Point provincial park for next weekend http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/sibb.html
This will be my second time camping there. It is only an hour away from my home and it is a perfect place to relax and do outdoor activities. Nice to have 30A power too and I'll be able to use the A/C and heat pump for the first time this season.

This time I'll be ready for mosquitoes and black flies. I hope the ThermaCELL will work and I have my bug screen outfit just in case. I may have to use it when I go to Omemee to pickup my A128S, millions of mosquitoes there for sure and I need an hour to do stuff there before heading to Sibbald Point.

Here are some pics I took when I was in Omemee:
