I think it is outdated. I stay at site 16 all the time in Darbonne and it has 50 amp as well as sites 18 and 20. I think they all do. You might can call them to confirm as all the sites I have stayed at Caney do also.

EDIT: Using the ReserveAmerica website confirms they all do have 50 amp hookups. If you stay at state parks, you need to bookmark reserveamericqs site as they are how you have to reserve spots at the parks along with a 6 dollar fee. That's the great outsourcing our state has done. Even if you drive to the park and get a spot at the gate, you still have to pay the 6 dollar reserveamerica fee;

Not sure if I posted in the right area, but saw a thread for name change requests. I goofed up in using my real name and asked to change it to HERmit.

Turtle gave me the idea...house goes with ya. I think there's a way to do it yourself...DH did it...he changed his from what he originally used to Schnicklefritz. I'm not that tech savvy.

Just putting this where I hope it'll be seen by admin.

Excellent. From a historical standpoint, the Santa Maria didn't return from Columbus first trip, and was dismantled after running aground. You probably don't want to jinx your trailer with that name.

The Nina and Pinta (however the Pinta had to be repaired at one point) did return...with the same Nina going back on his second voyage.

Does that help narrow it down.

Pffffft....got a history buff. LOL YEP it narrows it down!

Those names came up when DH jokingly referred to pulling "that Titanic" sized thing outta here next Friday.

He also mentioned "Queen Mary". nahhhh

BTW when you picked up your TT, was the bathroom tissue holder not installed? Ours wasn't, and the tech explained that many don't want it installed because kids break 'em off, etc.

I solved that problem today by purchasing one of those free standing tissue holders.

Our trailer also came with a POS paper towel holder mounted under the cabinet...so flimsy the paper towel roll would fall out when you reach for a towel. Solved that one too, by buying the free standing paper towel holder...took that flimsy plastic POS down and threw it away.

Kinda silly...every thing in this trailer is first class...corian counter tops, etc. amd that thing wasn't worth the price of the two screws to mount it.

As for naming 'er...I figure that like a pet, she'll end up naming herself.

Thanks for the info!

I had a toilet paper holder but don't really use it.

X2 on the paper towel holder. Mine falls out from traveling and won't hold a roll. I haven't replaced it yet, but may do that now since you reminded me.

I am in MS this weekend and am waiting on a certain home depot across from the hotel to open tomorrow before coming home. They have 7 sliding trays in stock that Herk showed me he installed in his trailers pantry. I am going to buy three tomorrow for mine.

Our home depot doesn't have them.

Pantry Slide Out baskets
