    Purchased new 5th wheel

    Yeah...think I'm gonna' do a lottery. Everyone seems to be coming out of the woodwork -- especially those that don't like camping. :) It's all good. Girls are 9 and 10 now and at such a perfect age for this. Them bringing their friends regularly was part of the reason for the hotel on wheels. :)

    Purchased new 5th wheel

    My dream was also to retire....and send my kids off to college. But THAT sure ain't gonna' happen now! :) Kidding. The advantages of a 2-income family. Got 4 trips planned between now and including Memorial Day Weekend at the beach. Just need my coach! 2 months has never gone by slower.

    Purchased new 5th wheel

    Well....it happened. Started thinking about bigger campers or a motorhome -- and somehow ended up with a new F-250 diesel and a Forest River Hemisphere 346QBUD...

    Anyone wanna do Jellystone in Tabor City, NC next weekend (8/16-8/19)?

    Howdy, everyone... My kids are tracked out from school now (we're year-round school) and next weekend is their last before going back to school for 9 more weeks...and then another track-out. Anyway....I just booked Jellystone in Tabor City (http://www.taborcityjellystone.com/index.php) for the...

    Houndog...how was your stay? I just booked for next weekend -- 8/16-8/19. Reviews seem very favorable. Have not been to a Jellystone yet. - rob

    Improvised Dutch Oven Table and First DO meals

    I had liners and parchment paper, but I decided not to use them. Figured I'd find out how non-stick they were. They were very non-stick. Cleanup, even for the quiche, was super easy. Gotta love Lodge pre-seasoned DOs. :)

    Improvised Dutch Oven Table and First DO meals

    I also have that little 3-sided wind screen, but couldn't find a good way to fasten it. The dedicated DO tables are longer from front to back as opposed to our stoves which are about 13". I thought about cutting the metal down fit inside the stove, but I wanted the extra space for not only a...

    Improvised Dutch Oven Table and First DO meals

    Good morning, fellow PUPsters. As I was researching dutch ovens, I came across folks talking about how much they like the convenience of a dutch oven table for cooking. Since the Camp Chef and Lodge DO tables look very similar to my already-owned Camp Chef grill, I decided to double-duty the...

    Dutch Oven Table

    Wow....big apologies for the incredible number of typos in my previous post. Was rushed to send it before I had to run to a meeting. *blush*

    Dutch Oven Table

    Hi, everyone... DW and I are heading to the NC mountains in a few days -- without the kids this trip -- and we're going to do some campsite cooking. I just ordered a 12" deep DO -- my first -- and some accessories to go along. In my research, I came across this thread. As a Boy Scout...

    Fridge Fan Mod cooling performance

    I'm not completely giving up on those posi-taps being the problem yet. I'm not electrical engineer...but when I tested with a volt-meter pulling from the 12v wires leading to the fridge wiring block, I had 12v...so I'm clearly drawing power. The LEDs in the fans would light...but they were...

    Fridge Fan Mod cooling performance

    Actually....my PUP is completely packed up. It's parked in my garage like always. Since my Jayco gives me access to the fridge while packed up, I had no reason to open it up just to do the fridge mod. Other ideas? :) If I can get my handes back to the block, I'll see about using some...

    Fridge Fan Mod cooling performance

    I tapped into the fridge controller. Took the + and - (labelled on the controller) wires and tapped into them. I would assume they are good, but guess I can't say for 100% sure. It being a new camper, I'd like to say yes. :) Like yours, my will not spin if the polarity is reversed. For that...

    Fridge Fan Mod cooling performance

    Thanks for the information. I have a completely empty fridge right now as i am just testing. I am very happy with the results...but still need to figure out the 12v issue I was having. In reality, it isn't a huge deal. I suppose if i am going to be parking for a long period of time without...

    Fridge Fan Mod cooling performance

    Good evening, everyone... I've had my PUP since last November..but only managed two trips. Just the way busy family life goes. My kids are heading to Camp Grandma next weekend for a week so DW and I are going to take advantage of the time alone and head to the NC mountains for 3 or 4 days to...
