It is amazing, open, airy and I love it. In the process of moving the electrical outlets DH changed them out to the ones that have 2 plugs as well as 2 USB ports on each one. There are beautiful hanging baskets near each one to hold tablets, laptops, cell phones, IPod's while charging. The wrap around couch can still easily be used to sleep two guests (grandkids).


Pictures and what model of camper is it?

I used ArmorAlls Wash Wax and Protect, but Im not really happy with the way it cleaned. What do you all use to was your TT?

We have stayed at Hatteras koa the last 3 years and love it. We have never stayed at camp Hatteras to know if one is better than the other. We mostly spend time at the beach and pool so don't really use much of the campground. Basically the camper is a hotel for beach week lol.

Found this to be very interesting that the HWT Hi Spec series 06 wheels max air pressure is limited to the valve stems and tires. So, with the new GY Endurance tires it would be acceptable to inflate them to the max of 85# cold.

You know the wifi booster kit/package/set it up yourself thing for under 100 bucks by David Bott? Well, I have had it for awhile and it was just laying in the the RV at home to make my cell work when I am out that way on our property. Today since I am recovering from Pneumonia, I installed the antenna part inside on side of cabinet and ran network cord out air vent to antenna that I mounted to front post of the RV Cover. Haven't tried it in a campground, but it sure works nice when you RV is 200 plus feet from the house. One bolt and the antenna comes off the permanent mount and I can take it with us if we plan on having a need for wifi. My lungs are exhausted, good nite all

Cleaned all the debris from the screens of the fans/vents. Had to get topside and tilt the vent covers out of the way to get all the debris so there won't be any more problems anytime soon.
Afterwards, did DW a solid and vacuumed the inside of the Sunseeker. After all, she was pulling weeds. I had the fun work!

You funny man!

Maybe I should have put a full space between the two thoughts, huh? But, no, she was in a different part of the yard - about 75 feet away.

Nothing like a heavy duty, labor intensive project to clear up that Pneumonia! 😷

No!!!.....not the same type trailer. His is much older (1990's vintage 5'er) however, he is ready to order a new Arctic Fox probably by the end of summer.
Rhinebeck.....home of the Dutchess County fair!!!! My old stomping grounds as a kid. Grew up in the Poughkeepsie/Wappinger/Hopewell Jct. area. Mom & dad would take us kids to the fair every year! You going to the car show there?
