Sometimes life over complicates things.

When it comes to camping. IUt be nice if we didn't need WD hitches, air bags, air hitches, surge suppressors, inverters, converters, jacks straps,blocks,gensets, extensions etc.... you name it.
It can be as simple or as complicated as YOU make it.

My goal is to relax when camping, some of the above items help me to relax on the other hand some of those gadgets can cause lots of grief.

Unfortunately there is always dichotomy.
One step forward can equal two steps backwards.

Yes, indeedy! Totally agree on the one step forward, two steps back. But occasionally it's three steps forward and only one back!

We are all ignorant. Just on different subjects.


This is true. I did not spend as much time in school as I could have, and did not pay as much attention as I should of when there. But sometime in my life I learned to watch what worked, and figure out why. And spending hours every day by myself learned to figure things out.
I say for camping, and taking care of my camper I know what I need to know. I base this statement on fact that I have camped for decades, and used the camper I bought used for nearly 15 years. Now might there be a better way to do some things? Certainly better for you, maybe better for me. Yes, I want to know, but it is not a need.
Back when I first got my pop-up, I decided to get online, and learn what I could. One of the first "facts" I learned was I needed a tank system to catch all my fresh water after it got dirty changed to grey. Instead of one big tank somebody (a member here) came up with a system to hook jugs together so when one was full, it would start to fill the next. I copied the system, tested it in the yard with fresh water, what a great idea! Went camping, hooking this up half a dozen times before the idea got between my ears; With my style of camping, before the first jug is full, we are packing up to move. The only way I need this chain is if I haul dirty water around. Now, I read a idea, and take the idea camping a few times, think about if it is a good idea for me before I act on the idea...

This RV'ing sure is complicated. Between figuring out pipe sizes and codes for home dump stations, how to deal with out of level dump stations, what breeds of dogs will be acceptable in campgrounds, purifying lake water, tire plugs or patches, the inside poop at Tesla, and where to stick your extension cord and fridge operation on propane and its safety implications, it's more than enough to leave your head spinning. Why does anyone even do it?


I just got back from a relaxing, uncomplicated, very enjoyable camping trip. What was the question again? [emoticon]

There is something special about camping in an RV.

Just north of us in the Manistee National Forest. Lots of dispersed spots, NF campgrounds, State forest campgrounds, etc. It's always fun to scout out new places!

No big deal LOL.

Just because someone spends more time in school, or pays more attention while there, does not guarantee they do not end up a total dumbass out in the real world with absolutely no common sense. I used to deal with those folks daily, still do once in awhile.

One time the guy that owned the company I was leased to but his son in a truck between his last 2 years of collage. Drivers sitting around witching about something while paving crew was moving. This "boy" said "Why doesn't President **** just $$$%%$$%?" I had to ask "Has he got a bill to sign to do that?" What do you mean? "You know he can't make a law, congress has to do it?" Well what good is it to be President?"
