yeah mines the bottom picture...just barely. Jerry on the other hand got a bit damp.
35 huh? I got lazy and only went down to 30 one time. Had no problem getting out and set up. Coming back though I could NOT make the little itty bitty hill from the main beach to the access trail. Aired down to 20 and drove right out.
Hope to meet you this year. I only made it out one time last year...depressing!
We'd rather start a little high and air down a few pounds if needed that have to drag out the air tank.
I've done the "store the prepared lasagna" trick in the camper oven. Last time was 20 years ago, when the oven opened as we went around a corner, the lasagna flew out and landed upside down on the new carpet! Got to our destination with a big mess to clean up, including a broken dish, and no supper.
I've switched to a pressure cooker for that first night supper. Much faster and I'm there to watch it!
When you go to the RV shows, if the slide is out, ask the dealer to put the slide in. Then see what it's like. I like a friend's suggestion: don't buy anything before visiting a rally and SEEING everything there and talking to folks. That's how you really know how it all works for folks.
We have a 2012 Lance 1191; slide comes in much more than in our previous 2007 Lance 1191, but neither interfered with using the bath when on the road. In the 2007 model, we could sit at the table, get into the fridge and pantry to made lunch without moving the slide. In the 2012, we can get into the front shelves of the fridge and just barely open the pantry, so making lunch without moving the slide means planning ahead, or opening the slide about 12 inches. Not a problem.
No one's mentioned parking your rig in Key West--no street parking for it and the parking lots are few and expensive. Just keep that in mind when you go to town. Also, if Anastasia is full, go a few miles further south on A1, and look for Gamble Rogers State Park. It's much smaller, but still on the beach. We often can get in there for an overnight when Anastasia is full. And if you overnight at Anastasia, go for dinner at the Purple Olive Bistro on A1A.
We get those when we camp near the beach. Seems they fly near the screen, then pull their wings in, and like a bullet, zip thru the holes in the screens! LED lights help--they're not so attracted to them. And spraying insect repellent on the screen door helps too. We don't spray our windows, as then we'd have to clean the glass. I rub some oil of cedar on the window screens and frames. They don't seem to like that. Doesn't take much. Avon's Skin So Soft oil works too. And if they bite, rub some cider vinegar on the bites; they'll be gone in the morning.
