I got mine for smells and through research discovered they used them for the SARS sanitizing and they felt it would help with the covid sanitizing as well. I also discovered insects did not survive as well.

Definitely air out your camper before going into it after using one of these. High ozone levels are harmful. Anything rubber in your camper will also have issues over time like window seals and your slide seals. Personally,I would not use one.

I am surprised the language some of those campers use at such an early hour. Definitely showing no respect to the other campers.
So my camping sin would be I wait until around 5:00am before I have my first mixed drink....CHEERS!!

I dunno if its a sin, or I was just being karma's helper... but...

We had what I nicknamed, "the chaos family", camping on the site next to us. Junk and toys everywhere, kids running through everyone else's campsites, the constant thunder of feet running back and forth in their trailer, banging, slamming doors, crying, screaming, parent's that could only speak in "yell", and no concept of what quiet hours were... Anyway, they had a griddle (that they never cleaned), trash bag, and cooler that they left out 24/7, so naturally, their site drew in the coyotes. After being jolted awake at daybreak by one of the coyotes howling a few feet from our bedroom window, I looked out to see what was going on. Their trash was ripped into, and one of the coyotes was licking their griddle. I didn't say a word. A bit later in the morning, father Chaos came out and threw down a batch of breakfast fixins on the griddle and turned it on. What's the cooking temperature to burn rabies outta your breakfast burrito?

If I confessed to all of my RV sins you would all order an exorcism on me.

Shhhhhh, don't rat me out!

I bought our first TT about 5 hours from home and was thrilled to get it, but we didn't have a camping trip setup for 3 months out.

So one day I came into the house and told my wife that there was a factory defect and that I had to take it back to the dealer to get it fixed. She of course offered to come with me, but I told her that I wanted to go on my own so that I could hear how the trailer sounded going down the road.

Instead of driving the 5 hours to the dealer, I drove two hours the other way and met my brother who told his wife the same story.

He and I had a great weekend fishing!

I see another warranty repair coming up this year too.

FWIW. Wives see past the sins. Wanna camp/fish with your brother? I bet she would be happy to see you happy. IMO

I was at a park that had old sewer hook ups that were no longer supposed to be used. I used them.

Been a few but this is the toughest. Was at a campground with full hookups for some dirt late model races. Came time to leave so I went to drain the black tank and disconnect. Low and behold, the drain hose wasn't connected well enough to contain the rush. Well enough said.

Went to back the new 5th wheel into storage. Got out showed 11 year old the low beam I was worried about hitting with A/C. Started backing up daughter yells. STOP! I do get out I am 2 beams away from my low point. She says its going to hit I look at least 8 inches clearance. I get in start backing up. She yells STOP again we repeat process. Get back in I start she yells I ignore. Then I hear cracking and she is really screaming loud.

It appears that when axles hit the 10 curb it raised the rear exactly at the beam. I never saw because every time I stopped I rolled forward so not to leave pressure on tranny.
