Funny you should ask......

The CG we are at is...well...sorta Alabamy Redneck and our site is sorta gravel.

I have the screw-stakes and the straps but this ground is so HARD I would have to run a rototiller over the "front yard" in order to put them in.

Can't even put in our 1/2" yard stakes for our RV sign...sheesh!

Promise you OC we will be fully dressed out in Goshen!

A 12" pc of closet dowel will screw the dog screws in and a hammer works wonders on 1/2" yard stakes.

I have 10" x 3/8" spikes if dirt screws won't go in for the awning straps.

U Bamians jest give up too easy.

Her's and my bucket list -the awning poles were the biggie because we have no room at the house to deploy the awnings (shrubbery in the way)

So, I worked on the awnings supports and we kept thinking of stuff during breaks and well Lowe's was too damn close to the RV park

6 Actual came up with the MOST cleaver means of securing the de-flappers I was just gonna do what OC did but I think she out-modded him on this one

Yer right OC - but since it was not so windy...

Besides there was a open offer for you to come on down and supervise - empty site right across the road

Not so much a Mod...

Just perhaps a good idea
  1. We are ALWAYS digging for our gloves to set up or do sewer duty...never again
  2. Found a pizza stone at a thrift shop for a whopping $1 - EXCELLENT heat dispersion in the oven now...next trip out 6 Actual is going to try fresh baked bread (from frozen dough)
  3. Yep, Rig is fully ID'ed as a FRF & PPST member

There is no a/c vent in the bath? what are you talking about, In the bedroom the a/c vents are before the light, so what good is that? The only way I can thing of is use wire molding from the overhead light to to the area. I don'e think that would be to attractive, don't want to trash my trailer.
