Rain Gutters

My bunk ends leaked a little, so I used some silicone caulking on them. I noticed that the rain gutter over the bunk is so tiny that it overflows when the dew runs off the roof in the morning. In one of many modifications to the Roo, I used some 2" flashing to make overhangs the keep the water off the top of the bunk ends. It works even when it rains now. I'm see the same toy rain gutter over the slide, and I'm thinking I need to put something there too.

I think hybrids are totally ideal. I had a pop up and now a TT. I love the TT but miss the tent beds. I will say that pop ups are a bit of work which I wanted to get away from and have but if you want small, easy to pull and requires a little work , pop ups are the way to go

Totally new and clueless

I'm new to this forum. We jumped into a new to us shamrock 21ss(2010) from the tent life. We are clueless, and having purchased from a private sale we don't know how to use the tanks and propane. We do know the guy purchased it and used it only as a shelter. The sewer pipe is bran new, never used. So no water has been run through it ever.
Can you good folks direct us in the use of our water and propane? I have read some of the posts already, and purchased a basic how to manual so far. We are taking our first trip over July 4 to a VA beach and do not want problems. Thanks for any help.

I think it would help if the moderator starts a new thread with your post! Answers will come faster.

Welcome. Relax, this isn't difficult or complicated. If it were, you wouldn't see all these folks doing it successfully and making it look easy.
If you Google up the topics you want, you will find umpty-ump "How-To" videos on all facets of RV operation and maintenance.

I agree...there are some fantastic YouTube videos that I think will help you a lot more than we can explain in text...though definitely glad to help! Maybe start there and then we can help with more details or specifics? I promise you it is really pretty simple after you do it once!

Like others mentioned, youtube is your friend. However, how far "outside of Washington DC" are you? There may be some folks on here that are nearby that would be willing to give you crash course in person.
Also, I would at least try to do a test "camp" in your yard/driveway before your July 4 Virginia Beach trip.

???Crash course
If anyone is around the DC beltway, we are not far from the Tysons exit.
Assuming the plumbing and gas all work the same (more or less) I could even come to you if that were available to me.

I suggest a driveway set up before you go. You can try everything except the blackwater flush. Make sure your pipes don't have any leaks and everything works before you are miles from home and can't do anything about it.

Seal the Seams

If you got yours used, take a look at the seams on the bunk. Mine leaked and rotted the wood on the back one. I put a bigger rain gutter above the seam. That helps. When folding the bunks, I find it is easier to use a six foot piece of electrical conduit to hold the bunk part way up while you fold in the material.
