    Hard side not dark side

    After traveling from my home in S TX to Bismark ND and that coldness this month and then later to the East Coast b4 getting home I finally convinced myself to buy a TT. Note: I do have "gizmos" over the beds and they worked just great keeping it warm. A big plus is that the dealership let me...

    Clueless campers

    I haven't seen this with the littering at campsites, especially those leaving their campfire burning after they left. I must be lucky.

    Summer Humidity: Keeping Bedding Dry?

    wow. never had those probs and never knew about it. but good info to know. I use a full hook up site mostly and leave a fan on with my windows closed. Works for me so far with no probs. Am searching for a TT but so far I dont like the floor plans and/or the bunk beds which they tend to sell here...

    on the road again

    Went traveling around Bismark and outter cities. Beautiful area btw. I found a nice large RV Sales company and took a look around. WOW. Now I want a TT. But am worried about warranty work if needed since a lot of shops wont work on things if you didnt buy it from them. Guess I could have it...

    Weber vs Blackstone

    For me its a Weber only. I dont know why though. Maybe its because I only use coals, mesquite, apple woods when I use it. Afterwards I just spray it down with oven cleaner, place it in large garbage bag and rinse it off when I get home.

    Screen Room

    been thinking about getting a screen room since I'm tired of using "OFF" spray and those bugs buzzing by me ears. OMG In the meantime I've been using "raid insect spray" but you get tired of that smell. Now when I go out camping, I use citronella torches and the table candles. Works for me. But...

    My November freeze out

I always use the hook up sites. Got to have my a/c. Haven't seen snow in so long. And would love a freeze out and...

    Recommendations for generator

I run mine in the summer at night for the a/c and fridge when boondocking. What ever genny you get also remember to buy items...
