Last weekend I let the camper rest and had a reality check weekend. Went tent camping. No showers just cold water sink. Restroom. Coleman stove. Elkmont campground, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Sleeping on the ground helps you appreciate whatever the bed is like in the camper. In 2 weeks back to the camper. Hungry Mothers State Park, Va.

Ya, we got a spot right on the stream. Beautiful. Calming to hear the stream running. Was there much water flow when you were there?

Shocked!

Marcus, where did you get your shock kit? I am interested in this for my Crusader. Those of you that have done this, is this worth the effort?
Thanks all!

Went there when my boys were little. They loved watching the movie out in the open on the island!

Took the 261BH xl camper on a test drive with new used f150 supercrew, to see how it tows and handle. Truck pulls good might have to adjust the hitch a little.

I thought there was a law or rule or something about sleeping on the ground!

Not permitted to backtrack camping. Just start out on the ground!

Deep cleaned, emptied and flushed tanks, sprayed all the outside nooks and crannies with bug barrier and told my teen that if he didn't clean his room that I would.....😂 looks like his room will undergo a purge tomorrow 😂😂😂

Replaced the propane cover lid that blew off last weekend.

Replaced the water heater element that we burned up last weekend by not purging the water heater tank... I had to do extra steps that weren't included in the tutorial.

I burnned mine out once. Left it on and brought to the dealer to have some warranty work done. Dealers don't care to check such things.

You're not a real camper till you burn one up. Welcome to the club.

Called Shower Enclosures of America (SEA) and requested 2 replacement rollers for shower door. Kind of difficult to get thru but once you do EXCELLENT customer service. He is sending me a pack of 8 and a new handle free of charge. Very pleased!!

New Tow Vehicle Tires

Well, nothing to the camper, but got new rubber all the way around the truck that tows the camper. My old Cooper's was almost down to the wear bars... Winter in Ohio... I needed new rubber. I now have Michelin LTX M/S2 E rated. Nice and quiet. Let it snow! LOL
