We just added our SoftStart or Easy Start. I forget which. I am so glad to not need to carry around our huge generator now. Easy install even for @Doppleganger. He is kinda particular about doing things neatly.

These are my staging areas!!!!



Haha. I have like 3 staging areas at this time. Actually 4. One for this trip, one for when we stop home on Sunday quick, one for our stuff we normally bring and my sister is camping with me for a week so there's another one. I feel your pain.

Pack the rain gear as the weather forecast is for rain for the next seven days

So excited for the salt potatoes. Need extra butter? Love local food sometimes, ok you talked me into it Zweigles will be procured. I'll prob bring my mini propane grill unless I bother over the fire w sticks....



The joys of NY is that the weather is so unpredictable.I don't believe it til it happens.I mowed on Saturday thanks to the rain, I needed to do it between the rain storms.Hopefully it helps for the next couple weeks.

These avoid sun stoke and getting wet with rain (hopefully it will be cool and clear skies) we could probably use a couple more if anyone can assist Thanks.
We have a 10 x 10 pop-up to share

It was actually would have been a fun job if not for the oppressive humidity we've been having down here. Even though it was only up to 80 and cloudy here, I was sweating buckets, my face felt like it was raining as I leaned over A/C unit doing the install. At least when I finished, I got to do learning cycles inside the camper with A/C on home shore power. Works great, no more big WHUMP! as compressor comes on.

Yup we got the same one. We needed to do the learning cycles as well. (The only difference between the two in my mind.) It was alot nicer not hearing those thuds. We needed to use our big honking generator for the test starts. Our breaker would have blown if we had used Shore power. Maybe an eventual task sewer and Shore Power that will be sufficient, but yay its done. And now we can use AC in a pinch for the trailer with Shore Power

I put a RV 30 amp outlet on shed, and tied it into the 20 amp circuit I have on shed. Will run anything, as long as you don't turn everything on at once. Glad the learning cycles worked on generator, I read that they don't recommend trying the learning cycles on generator. Didn't say you couldn't, just didn't recommend it.

We can always relearn when on the site, but was just needing to learn it in, one way or another.

As long as it works on the generator you intend to use, it is probably fine. Relearning involves opening the unit and jumping some terminals, PITA unless you remove it to put it in another RV.

Just came home from buying the salt potatoes got 10 lbs hope it will be enough. Have a pound of butter just for the potatoes. If there are any left over potatoes I will make hash browns the next morning.

I don't know, but I'm eating both if you have leftovers! Wodstock, mine is brand new, but I cheaped out got the non-bluetooth model, as I didn't think it would be of much use. Mine was almost 300 bucks for non-bluetooth, with shipping, tax, and discount.

Local hot dogs I know NYC area its Sabrett's - Making/ bringing local foods here too. This will be a nice change of pace.



We were originally contemplating spiedies - you know what those are?

Mine was over that price point, no discounts ordered off of amazon since I had a gift card - but hubby's request was the bluetooth model. I forgot that's the downfall of non bluetooth is the jumpers.



The software is helpful - not perfect but it will allow me to relearn through the app.

I try to avoid them, but any good quality NATURAL CASING dog is my favorite. Gotta be a 'snappy' dog! No clue what spiedies are!

Which do you try to avoid? Zweigles is natural casing - if you get the right one. It's the "pop open" dog.



Spiedies are marinated chicken in an italian(ish) dressing typically on italian bread with butter slathered on the bread.

I'm just impressed you know anything about it! My wife has ZERO interest in this stuff, just wants things to work! Her only job is to crank the stabilizers down. She's working from home today, and she's protesting that I just said that.

I try to avoid hot dogs in general with all the sodium and fat, but treat myself a couple times a year. How do you pronounce Spiedies? That is just a typical weeknight dinner for us once in awhile. The last ones I grilled, I put a few slices of salami on top, with a few slices of provolone at the end to melt. Was great!
