This person had the same setup last year and it slid off of the leveler stack. That should have been a lesson learned. There are some large trees about 10 feet behind the trailer so it won't go far if it slide.

Looks like they would work better if he rolled them over on the side.

And there was probably a "No RV Washing" sign at the dump station too.

In Northeast Ohio, I've been seeing the Amish, and Mennonite camping for years. Maybe they want a full service site?

Full service? I didn't know the Amish partake in that sort of thing. Interesting.

So I guess technically she isn't breaking the rules since the truck is not the RV. Means a new sign is on the way....."No washing any vehicles"

I don't know how to tell the difference between Mennonite and Amish but AFAIK, Mennonite use electricity in their homes and Amish don't.

So them using cell phones and RVs wouldn't be all that surprising to me.

I remember seeing a group of them at a KOA one time trying to figure out how to use the washing machine in the laundry building.

electric is "attached to the Grid" that is bad
electric can cause comfort, that is bad.

but if you milk cows for drinking milk, you can't milk by hand so you need electric for machines and pasteurization . that electric comes from a generator.


in the 70-and 80's Amish contractors had phones installed in a box outside the house, "call me at 6:00 AM to talk to me about work" That phone was "attached to the grid". But its out of the home and required to make money, that is OK.
cell phone is not "attached to the Grid", that is OK.


I used to get a kick out of the kids using GPS in the buggy. come on now, they have a range of maybe 10 miles, and they have been over those same 10 miles over and over, and they need a GPS?

This gentleman bought and installed an apparatus to convert his bumper pull trailer to function as a 5th wheel. He said it was manufactured by a company in Houston, Texas.
