Upgrades to come later with photos
So work is 630 miles away from home (LA to KY). The oilfield Gulf of Mexico has dried up. Time to hustle some work.
Our purchase was a no brainier spend 2,000 a month on a hotel or 500 a month on lot rent/camper note. We have been interested in the bunk house for a few year and could never justify the purchase until now.
We rushed into the deal which it was a deal!
Rushed through the purchase!
We rushed through the walk-through!
Left two days later.
Been camping for 7 week now with the wife and kids.
What we've learned.
-Towing is a breeze with a great wingman/Wing-women's in my case.
-Bottom bunks can be turned into a playpen (16month) for the daughter.
-Nap time means swimming for the 6 yr old son because he can't sit still or be quite in a shaking camper.
-26' is not big enough!
- A family of 4 will consume 20lbs/5gal of propane in 3 weeks for showers and one hot meal a day.
-BlackWater needs emptied once a week. (Usually full anyways)
-AC filter needs cleaned once a week.
-Change freshwater filter about every 6 weeks!
-Use a crockpot or BBQ to cook on hot days or your going to melt inside!
-Role up the awning before you depart or go to bed.
-check your seals and roof before a storm/monthly.
-Constant AC will acquire 1200kwh of power consumption.
Some Questions for Veterans RVers?
-What should a monthly electricity payment be for a TT? AC 15 running full time and fridge.
-How do I use my LED porch light remote control? I think the camper remote took over!
-Where is my 12v battery tender located?
-What are the best ways to heat a TT while at work?
-Should I be looking at heat tape for plumbing/sewage?
-should I use propane during traveling for refrigeration?
-How do take out some of the shaking from the camper with active kids?
Any help encouraged
