    How Cold Is Too Cold

    We don't use any water systems in our camper. We use bottle water or just use a hose on the spigot for the site. The sink is so darn small it's near useless, we use the sink to store little things. i.e. flashlights, keys, wallets ect.

    Light/Converter question

    If you have a volt meter, place it on the battery and measure the voltage with no lights, one light and both. If the voltage drops you have a problem. Could be a weak battery, but more investigation needs to happen to be sure.

    Is it weird that I am always looking for a new one?

    How did camping start in your family?

    In 1967 my parents rented a PUP to go to the York Beach ME for a week. We all liked it so much we ordered our Starcraft PUP the day we got home. We used it mostly to travle to the beach and Canada, not really to "camp" as in roughing it in the woods. I've tent camped all my adult life, when...

    Cheap 2011 popup

    We have a Rockwood made by the same company. I think the 176 is the small basic model. We had the same floor plan for 2 years and loved it. My dealer quotes $850 to add air. I can't imagine a PUP without it. Good Luck

    What kind of toilet chemicals are the best? Been having a stinky problem

    Outer Banks suggestions
