Sorry to hear about your health problems, but enjoy the permanent site camping. We are discussing just selling ours and finding a park model in FL for the winters.
Thanks OC. I have a feeling that it's going to be hard getting used to this park model thing and still call it camping. It doesn't seem the same if you don't have to hook it up to a truck.

why can't you just move your unit down to a site in Florida and leave it at a site? I know you have ran out of stuff to modify on yours. By the way, I still have not seen any pictures yet on your powder coated DEFLAPPER installation yet? ...

A day or two later I notice the camper being off level on the rear, slide side. I have had to jack up the axles one at a time, add another shim under the tire to level I again. I can understand at the beach on a sandy site but in the mountains?

Does the slide throw the level off that much?
It does on ours, we know how much to over raise for proper finished level! Youroo!!

Weather not cooperating and that dreaded lazy bug has infested the area.

We just pulled the trigger last spring in Arizona to a park model in a 55+ gated resort. About 1/3 of the sites are RVs and it still has a campground feel. We still are keeping the Wildcat to have short travels in the southwest and 2,000 miles back home touring along the way in the summer.

Life is good!

I have used gas to soak them in the past.

Lol. x2 gas with oil or trans fluid in it.
