    EV+Popup, Hi From WI

    Wisconsin Dells Campsites?

    There is a KOA not far from the Dells. You aren't going to find any spaces at any State Park. There is a State Park, Devils Lake, in Baraboo that you can check and maybe catch a weekday, non-electric site. We have been to the Dells numerous times and found the best bet is to rent a room at one...

    Nest Thermostat in the Camper ???

    May need an off switch. I installed a standard thermostat in my without an off switch thinking turning it down all the way would suffice. It kicked on when I hooked up the battery to winterize in 50 degree temps. Test it first.
