Just like I thought, it's there because someone, somewhere, didn't.



I guess it would be one way to keep a roof cool if camping in Arizona during the middle of summer.
Yes, there is always one!

I've heard of people blowing the tanks and popping seams because of the pressure.. So should be monitored. But I fill while closed all the time. Let's it fill up the and then suck the stuff out. I use a sewer back flush adapter(flush king) not the built in flush setup.

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!!


Bahabaha! Awesome.

There was a tight fit in our driveway when we got our first TT. It was only a 19 foot but it definitely had a blind spot in the opposite corner to the driver. After returning from one of our first trips, I felt a little bump in the night. The basketball hoop that was mounted on the side of the driveway was no more. I had been meaning to remove it and it was now on the ground. The camper only had a couple scratches, reminders of a meeting in the night.

Well crap... today was a doozy.

#1- left Orlando this morning. My wife, daughter, and I all touched it but we freaking left the power cord. Luckily, we have a friend who happens to be coming back down this way tomorrow and they’ll bring it with us.

#2- this park has flag pole shaped sites so you have to back in around someone’s camper. They have the most terribly place light posts on the other side. And our spot has a fence across the road. My buddy hit the fence last year when they were here.

So... yeah, I hit light pole and scratched/dented the truck.

Summer down here in Arizona is our winter as far as camping is concerned...

My camper is what I call 'summerized'...all closed up as it is too darned hot to go camping here!

Tell us the name of the campground, so others can avoid it.

No, tell us when you'll be there next so we all can come and watch.

Breezy Hill in Pompano Beach, FL. I knew it was tight- we were here last year. But with the way everything was, I just couldn't get into my spot.
