fj12ryder is correct, just messing around, that's why I chose ATC.

Started to also mention how I like to ignore payload ratings and take as long as I want to at the dump station, but didn't want to put anyone into a tizzy.

Lighten up folks, it's almost camping season (at least for those of us with "3 season" campers)

Take care

Great job, I think you only need to add alcohol, explosives, and maybe a pole for dancing.

I think you should mount the China Diesel Contractor Generator on the rear bumper.

That way you can carry your straight pipe Harleys on the front bumper on a rack.

With that disco setup you can invite all your buddies in their orange and black Harley costumes up to party untill dawn.

Of course you'll need to sneak in some drugs too. Coffee just isn't enough to go all night.

Remove the muffler. The generator will run cooler. [emoticon]

You forgot a siren that goes off when it's time for shots all around?

You're in the wrong part of Kentucky for that setup, CampingFarmer. You need to be in the midst of the mountains of Eastern Kentucky for that. Add about a dozen wild kids and you are set! [emoticon]

On a serious note, with the weather we have been having this week, it's got me itching to get in the RV for at least a night or two. As soon as our campgrounds open on 03-01, we will be heading somewhere.

Don't forget to wire for a flood light.


Flood lights are for sissies. Look for a salvage light house beacon, about 10kw. That will keep the plugs clean on your contractor generator. Then spin it up to about 180 RPM.

You will soon identify all the epileptics in the campground, and all the seriel killers.

Add a big loud dog and some little yappy ones. Burn some plastic in the campfire. Don't forget to leave shell casings and cans of Copenhagen at the campsite when you leave . . . .

Wait. This is a joke! Well done! You had me going for a minute.

After adding a great number of LED lights (strobes,rope lights,and a disco ball) and an extremely loud sound system, I keep tripping breakers.

Directly to the bumper or to a frame mounted hitch?
I tried to hit several of the forum hot buttons with my above missive. [emoticon]

Hope everyone has a fun and safe 2019 camping season, ours starts in about a month when the local campgrounds open.


Why?? Go to a disco and leave the camping, no one wants that **** around a camp.


Speak for yourself..

OF COURSE WE DO !!

One poster's **** is another poster's entertainment.

Supply lots of home brew pliz, and 15 min fireworks show no earlier than one AM.
