Put away my solar panel kit!!! "What you saying Willis?!"

Oh crap!
I have not quite completed the control board for my solar, but.
Will be moving batteries and mount controller board in a back compartment that runs side to side and came with both an outside access and inside access (less tongue weight).
Because we camp in the shade here in Michigan, I intend to deploy the solar panel where there's a "sunny spot" rather than attach it rooftop.

Do you think I will need to collapse it and store it every time we leave the camp? Really!

It takes approximately 6 minutes to close tent ends? Less to open them. REALLY! So it was just an informational question. This was our 1st camp trip when the campground was full. Everybody I've met at any campground has been very friendly and helpful. I left the ends open this past weekend. But I did put my mountain bike in the trailer and locked it! left the wife and kids bikes out unlocked.

It's true that while camping you have to leave your stuff out. No way around that. For the most part we all have good experiences. If you feel the need to lock up a trailer - any design - remember the actual fact is that it's not that secure and the locks can all be defeated in less than 15 seconds by someone who knows how. If people can get into a house or steal a car getting into a trailer is simple. Be smart when you pick your spots. Smile and wave at your neighbors. Enjoy your time.

Not for nothing but I was just wonder if people close the tents. I have owned this roo for 3 months never had another camper before. To be honest have not run across another hybrid in a campground. I trust people! I believe that most people in a campground are trust worthy and genuinely nice people there for the same reasons I am. As far a weather goes if it's going to rain I'll close them every time. Thanks for the input everyone.

When we had a HTT we zipped the windows shut and locked the door. Never had a problem.
