RE: proper hook up procedure?

Harbor Freight makes big rubber chocks that are the same as the more expensive ones. I took a small level and glued it to a small magnet I had and keep that in the side compartment where the propane is and stuck to the frame. After I unhitch and pull the truck away I open the compartment and turn the whole magnet and level it until its level, or just about - thats where I know I need to be when raising the front legs to hook back up. Its cheap and simple and takes the guess work out of it. Then I just go about and do my normal front to back routine etc... Also I use chocks as everyone else has mentioned.

RE: Hitch choice

For me I went with an air ride hitch by Trailersaver the BD3 model. I don't think I would ever go back to a solid hitch after owning this one for a while. Previously I had a Reese which worked fine but then upgraded later on and dont regret it.

RE: Traveling with a Residential Fridge?

A residential fridge is a huge cost savings for the manufacturer. Think about it. No LP lines to run to it. No 12V power needed. So no 12V lines to run to it. They now need to add an inverter which probably costs more than just some black pipe and wire.

RE: Dumping Tanks in an Empty Full Service Site

At Ohio State parks its the same price, full hook up or electric only. This is so not true. The cost of a FHU is always more. Rates

Cell Booster Question

So I am in the market for a cell phone booster when out in the fringes of reception. I know it needs some signal to amplify it but my question is that after reading reviews I see the range that it amplifies seems to be quite short on a lot of them. A lot of reviews are saying a foot or inches away from the internal antenna. This seems to be for all of them knockoffs and weboost as well. I was hoping for something that boosted the range a little more as too outside the trailer as well. So for those of you that have them, what is the real world review that you can share on the range?

RE: Renogy 12V 100W Panel on Sale - 87.00

Sorry guys that its a higher priced or sold out now. Trust me when I first posted this it was 87 as I checked it out myself, but this could have been a 1 day deal. I dont work for amz or the manufacturer, I just saw it on my daily deal site and thought it might help someone out who was looking.

RE: camp ground cable into

I have never seen a TV without a coax cable hookup, a monitor yes but never on a TV. Strange.

RE: Campspreading

I have never seen a CG where the "property lines" where well enough defined to fight over it. Doesn't the site go from power pedestal to power pedestal?

RE: Campspreading

This only happens to me at a certain state park I go to. The site I reserve is very large and the one next to me is just a sliver of land next to the road. The last time there a group came and unloaded their gear and started to setup (tents). The next time I came out they were setup like 10ft from my fire pit so I told them they were about 20ft on my side. I told them I know their site is small and I dont mind them coming over on mine a bit but they need to move over. I told the the sites usually go from power pedestal to power pedestal. They didnt know and moved their stuff. They were over on my side somewhat but it didnt matter to me and we all had a good time.

RE: Need Sling TV while traveling. What's the best way?

I don't think so. If I'm not mistaken, you need good WiFi on both ends. Im not sure what you mean by the above statement. The recording is done by Sling on their server. You just go into the guide and set it up to record the show - It is then saved at Sling. You can watch it whenever you want provided you have a good signal.

RE: Mosquitos

RE: wi fi smart tv

Turn off the privacy settings and watch tv. If the tv wants to know I am watching judge judy - I really dont care.

RE: It sure is complicated.

It can be as simple or as complicated as YOU make it. I think that statement sums it up perfectly

RE: It sure is complicated.

Camping is not rocket science,but there is certainly a learning curve. Bingo. Many of you forget that you, too, had to learn at some point. Just because someone doesn't pick up on something right away does not mean they don't have common sense-it just means they haven't learned it yet. Yes, some do over-complicate things but I'd say the majority of the time it's not because they want to, it's just they don't know any better-yet. I am always amazed at how fast people on here are to ridicule others who are less experienced than they are. Pride goeth before the fall. Uppity attitudes about how stupid others are be it at set-up, break down, the boat launch, backing in a unit etc. should be replaced with "I remember". Indeed there are some people who just won't get it but they, too, should not be scorned. Karma hurts. Nobody is ridiculing anyone in this thread. I agree that you dont know what you dont know about camping until you start. It was the same for me but I read a lot on these forums and they helped me out tremendously. I have never backed in a trailer, went to the dump station or knew how to setup or breakdown camp - so you read, watch others at the CG and ask your camping neighbors. Once you do it a few times you get comfortable with it. They over complicate things because they think their way is better not because they dont know how.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

I travel with it on and dont turn it off at gas stations either

RE: It sure is complicated.

A lot of people make it more complicated that it needs to be. Its camping not rocket science here.

RE: LAN security

I think that is someone in a CG is trying to hack my Smart tv through the campgrounds half azzed working wifi then they are not much of a hacker.
