This is not my first experience dealing with this. It never plays well. Tell the host who inturn calls police who show much later. Offending party told to leave. While we are gone hiking or whatever our stuff gets trashed. Next outing is a PGE park us that does not allow alcohol. Should be a better experience for all.

It was a USFS campground. As I said previously no cell service. No rangers in the area. Only one camp host. What are they going to do eccept risk gettin beat up. This is the new norm. I am not going to get physical with a bunch of drunks with my kids present.

Interesting thoughts on our short weekend. It was a USFS facility. One camp host. No rangers to be seen. No cell service as we are T Mobile customers. In short it was our problem. Could have reported them Saturday morning. Then wondered about retaliation while we wee out fishing. We have been camping many years and this is the new normal. I will not expose my kids to this again

Our family tradition is to go out camping every Memorial day weekend so we made reservations way in advance. Set up camp last night. Roasting marshmellows with the family when neighbors move in. Stereo cranks. Beers are opened. Kids we don't know are in our site. Tried to polietly , and I really was, ask the neighbors to turn it down as it is suppose to be "quiet time". They told me I picked the wrong campground. Thought about camp hosts but what could they do? Get into a conflict and put drunks out on the road? Not likely. So we packed up and came home. Why can't folks who want to party stay home? Folks just do not care anymore. Very discouraging

RE: TT - how long is too long ?

The confusing part of this puzzle is that laws regarding length & width vary from one state to the next. My friend has a fiver toy hauler that is titled at 40 but in reality is closer to 42. IMHO bigger is seldom better. Many trailers I see are simply bigger. Not really using the extra space for anything. For me I will go small with a good use of space. Happy Trails

RE: Spare Tire....How many of you carry one?

Tire, jack & lug wrench. The difference is between waiting a few hours to change or do it myself in 15 minutes

RE: Need recommendations please

You re wise to consider thi prior to purchse. As previously stated it depends on the campground. Many USFS scmp sites in our area restrict to 22 feet long. When I full timed my fiver was 29. Bigger is not always better. I have seen bigger rigs that were just bigger. What I am suggesting is to consider how well used the space is more than how much there is. It will be a compromise. Have fun with the search.

RE: OK, this is weird. Our TT is haunted?

I can perform an exercism for you right now on line. There, finished. Just send me a check. It will eventually stop. Sorry I have no helpful info on this aside from a defective toilot balve pressurized by the hot water heater. Even though the guage may say empty there is still likely a bit of water in the system

RE: REEFER: Common Practices

If we are home for more than a week I shut it down and empty perishables. I just figure a fridge ha so many working hours in it's life so I conserve. And my unit is 15 years old. Cost of a new fridge scares me to be honest

RE: Can you fold up bunk ends with made beds?

We always use sleeping bags. I do know our mattersses need to be folded and, atleast on the rear bed, clearances are tight. So for our rig I would say NO. Being almost year round campers and having owned a hybrid for many years I can say I would not own one if I could get as much space out of a conventional trailer with the same weight. Many reasons listed on other posts.

RE: tips to stabilize

We have four stabalizers and still get movement unless we chock the tandem wheels. I think a surprising amount of movement comes from this. I made a wheel lock from two V cut 4x4 with threaded rod and nuts to draw them tight. It really helps

RE: New PopUp

Congratulations. Upon picking up the new pop up ask as many questions as you can. Take notes. Buy a water hose pressure regulator with a hose. Go home and begin a written list of what you want in the trailer. Go camping, make memories, learn as you go. We use bunk exterior covers just to keep them cleaner and lasting longer. Also if you camp in the rain you MUST set up at home until totally dry. Enjoy

RE: Oven ?

I know it takes a few for the thermacouple to open the gas to the burner. Last trip after a full five minutes it took blowing air back to get it done. So do you just clean the burner with the tooth brush? What about carb cleaner with gas off?

Oven ?

We use our oven often. Last trip out The pilot lit fine but burner would not ignite until I blew air through a straw near pilot lite area then all was fine. How does one clean out these little openings? Is there an easy way? Anyone know what is going on here?
Oasisbob 05/21/16 10:37am Tech Issues

So our trusty HTT is sixteen years old and had hundreds of outings. Today, while cleaning the canvas, I noticed the outer coating is starting to show it's age. Anyone know of a product that might protect it for a few more years? I do use covers on top when folded out. They are wearing through as well. Any thoughts?

RE: I need your help....

Always better to earn interest than pay it. Save up and pay cash. Not a popuar opinion but you asked. Fun is not meashred by the price of our toys but how much we get to use them

RE: Cleaning Holding Tank Sensors

My guages lie like politicians. I use a sprinkler type tank flusher which temperarally helps.

RE: dry camping needs ??

Thank you for your consideration of others regarding the generator. We have a 4-5 day limit on dry camping due to small water tank. Our twin deep cycle group 27 will take us strongly through three nights of evening video's, furnace etc,. We do use a Honda EU 1000 generator and a 40 amp battery charger to bring the batteries back up. Takes about two hours in middle of the day. Best of luck.

RE: Truck Camper Storage... there is more than you think :-)

I know just what you mean. I go through ours once a year. Gret way to shed a few pounds. It is surprising.

RE: Easy and quick extra rinse for black water tank

I just use an internal sprinkler device while dumping If no one is waiting behind me I may do a second fill & rinse on the black tank. I also think chemicals is a waste of money. Been doin this for many many years.
