We were camping this weekend and spent a large amount of time at the campsite (not normal for us but the DW is having foot issues)...

I figured out how to turn on the heat to the water heater and let it run for a minute( prob no more than 3 minutes), then turned it off. I...

    Check your spare tires!

    On our most recent camping trip we ended up blowing our left tire out on the PUP. Pull over on the side of the highway, had the old tire off and went to get the spare when I realized that the spare was a 4 lug wheel and the PUP was a 5 lug! It looks like it might have been a Jayco factory...

    Stepping down wire size from battery

    I’m installing a battery disconnect on my PUP. The wire size on the negative side to the battery appears to be an 8 gauge wire but all Walmart had for an extension was 6 gauge wire with the 2 ring terminal ends. Will that be ok? So it would go battery— 6 gauge wire— battery disconnect — 8 gauge...

    Replacing outside speakers

    Can anyone tell me what the putty is inside my outside speakers? I’ve seen anything from butyl tape to plumbers putty on the Internet. Also do you need special camper sealant for the outside of the speaker or can you use regular silicone sealant?

    Drinking water hose....Are they worth it?

    Are the white marine drinking water hoses really worth buying if I can just get a better hose for cheaper (and is the kind that shrinks small for the PUP for storage) out of the garden section? We don’t plan to drink out of the PUP, just do dishes and the occasional outside hot shower.
