    Trips Booked

    Well, we ended up cancelling our reservations! My wife figured out that a bed for us became available at my MIL shore house!! I'd rather be at the house than 30 min away! Besides, I can now partake in drinking adults beverages with family as we hang out for the evening. It also saves us about...

    Baffled after research.

    Ok, here's an idea...Call the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart, IN. Ask them if they could help identify what you have. It's worth a shot!!! They have all sorts of campers there and they might have an idea what you have.

    Propane refill adaptor

    We used to use the 1 lb bottles, but they started to get expensive. So I purchased a 10 lb tank. It has paid for itself at least 3 times over. I costs me $10 to fill. That's a lot cheaper then buying 10 1 lb bottles.

    Adding air conditioning

    ^agree, did not think to ask if the roof had braces or not... I've seen some pretty small A/C window units within the last few years. Seems they are getting smaller and lighter!!

    Adding air conditioning

    I know you mentioned looking into a window A/C unit to install. Did you look into a small rooftop unit? It will cost more but you won't have to cut a hole in the side and configure cabinets. Just a thought!!

Now, as for the prices......they are going up!!!! My wife buys Porterhouse steaks from BJ's Wholesale Club once in a...

    Technically yes!! NJ still has it that you can't pump your own gas. But it's being brought up for discussion again. On the way back from Atlantic City I filled up at the Wawa on the White Horse Pike (Rt 30) and it was $4.18 a gallon.

    Portable Device/battery Charging station?

    When I was backpacking I purchased a Power Monkey Extreme. It's a solar charger setup that came with a portable battery that can be charged either plugging it it to an outlet or attaching the solar charger to it. The thing worked great out in the New Mexico wilderness. You could also plug your...

    Whiffletree crank issue? Roof not cranking up.

    Yeah, Youtube has a lot of great videos of the Fleetwood/Coleman lift systems. Quite a few of them walk you thru the maintenance steps. Does the roof crank up ok? Only that pin is rubbing on the panel? Is something pushing the panel from behind?

    Here at a Liberty station a few towns over where we normally fill up it's $3.49 a gallon for regular. But I do not see us traveling very far with the camper this year with prices going up as much as they expect. Will prob camp within the state this year.

    Trips Booked

    I just booked a 9 day stay at Cedar Creek Campground during the summer. We have family coming in from all over and like last year there is no room for the wife and I at my MIL shore house. No big deal, we are only 25-30 minutes from the house. Nice thing is we can set the AC at the temp we want...
