Agree with using garden hose with soft brushes. Had ours washed and detailed near Cedar Keys, FL and paid $450 on our 30'. This included top and awnings with hand waxing. Great job!!

We travel with enough water in the tank for potty breaks. Plus, a lot of Colorado mountain towns have public water sources that you can use to fill the tanks once you get out there. On the square in...

That's exactly what I did and it works fine. Before cleaning, I purchased a new one just in case it didn't work. It's still in the box sitting on a storage shelf in case I do need a replacement.

I have to confess that I don't always pick up after our dog along the trail or road, especially during the night. I keep saying I'll come back to get it - NOT. Ok, give me 40 whacks!

Agree whole heartily about this campground, especially if you love horses. Can be busy though when something is going on at the park. Also, ask about water pressure. On our last visit, they were...

Electronic repellents

Don't know about soap, but the electronic repellents work for us as long as we have 120 volt service. Haven't had a mouse at all since we stored the trailer 4 months ago. We use 6 units plugged into...

In this case, you'll need an extension cord plugged into the 20 amp outlet or generator. I've read this can be done to supply 120V service to a replacement, residential make refrigerator.
