Camping Trip #4 was a challenge. Learn a lesson next time to double check the hitch lock on the ball. 2 mins to the start of my trip hit a bump and stopped for a red light and felt the trailer hitting my bumper, found out the hitch ball slipped back. Took me close to 30 mins to put the hitch ball to its proper position. I now know the correct position by looking under the hitch lock and what to feel for in the hitch lock. The only damage was a scratch bumper and stress the rest of the trip paranoid of losing the trailer. I made it to my destination and feel next time It should be ok as long as I double check the hitch lock position.
The other challenge was going backwards with the trailer in a long narrow drive way, down slope on one side, and tall grass. Checkout the pic because of a lot of backing corrections the grass were flatten...lol:
I camped on a friend's empty lot w/empty workshop far away from home, no washroom and electric. There is a campground 10 km away, a river and old train tracks used for hiking or biking. I biked to the CG to visit friends camping there. I also have a friend's cottage 20 mins away by car, I visited them for dinner and left the trailer in the lot. I'll be back there next weekend to do some kayaking with a couple of friends and try biking on the old train tracks.
Used this cheap generator, very loud, to recharge my trailer's battery and watch movies before bed. First time I used the propane for heater and fridge. Both works perfectly. If you look closely my new trailer's front is covered with dirt for going on wet country roads.
I just realized I forgot to turn off the water heater. The propane tanks are off. Does anybody knows what happens in this case?
