It's our twin! A 2306 trip is definitely in order!

Hey guys... Anyone know where to purchase an additional TV bracket? We're adding a second TV and would like it to have a dedicated bracket for the outside... Kids watching spongebob inside, me watching the Pirates bullpen blow another lead outside.

We bought an extra TV and ordered the bracket through the dealer we purchase our camper. I think it cost about $75 and was delivered in about a week. We usually let the kids watch a movie or TV inside and we watch the game on satellite outside. I hope this helps

Thanks... I have a call into the manufacturer... Waiting to hear back. I'm looking for one that swivels up and down as well as left to right.
On another note... Did you guys see the "RV Companion Free" app for the iPhone? It has a built in leveler that will tell you exactly how many inches you need to raise your camper to be level, left to right and front to back. Going to try it out this weekend.

No I will have to look up that app. I just have a regular level, luckily so far inly one site has been unlevel since getting the new camper. Memorial day weekend we are going to the Caverns State park in the panhandle of Fl and have a paved site. Should be nice! When's your next trip?

We'll be out this weekend at Clear Creek State Park... Awesome little park with a swimming hole so cold it'll turn your lips blue (literally). Wasn't planned but saw that our favorite site was available so we decided to go. Memorial day weekend we'll be at Cook Forest State Park. Planning on taking our first family canoe trip down the Clarion river. Also going to trying out our new portable waste tank (Thetford LX 18gal)... No more hooking up just to dump halfway through our trips... most of our state parks are electric only, but are beautiful parks at $26/ night. I figured I'll walk to the dump station a couple times to save $75 over a 3-day weekend.

How much does the portable waste tank cost? Is it easy to use?

Here's the link...
Thetford 40510 SmartTote Xl 4 Wheel 18 Gallon Tank with Handle : Amazon.com : Automotive.

$187 from Amazon... which is about the average price it's going for and includes shipping for Prime members. I figured two long weekends and it paid for itself. I'll be camping at a state park for a full week later this summer, so i'll definitely need it.
They also have 27 and 35 gal containers but I've heard that they're somewhat heavy to manage when they're filled. I have not used one previously... but i have a buddy who has one (and older model) and he says they're pretty easy to use.
I also bought three 6 gal drinking water containers from Walmart at $5 each to refill the fresh water tank.

Do you state parks charge a different price for sites with in ground dumping?

Does your bracket on the outside look like this one? Well... Not sideways, of course... Lol
