    How much Stuff are you carrying??

    How much stuff do you have? http://community.webshots.com/album/582758953YrrNao We were surprised at how much stuff was in the Popup. And we couldn't load much in when it was closed, so all of this was always on-board. And that does not include the Screen room, outside stove, pop-up Gizmos...

    For our Anniversary - a Bus!

    Well, we are about to enter the DARK SIDE [!] As I mature, it gets a little harder to pop-up. And MIL keeps us home too much. So we stumbled on a deal, and jumped. May 3rd is pick-up day, when we have to say goodbye to our good friend the Niagara. We are getting a Fleetwood Storm 28F (It's...

    Somerset Campers

    Wow, we were just at the Tampa RV show and I spotted something that looked almost familiar. Paul said "the name says Somerset", and I said "That is where the Fleetwood/Coleman plant was [PU]." I know some will say "Oh, old news" but I had not heard of them before. One of the men there said...

    HELP!! Plans for a 2004 Fleetwood upper Galley??

    Anybody have the plans for or a pattern for the Upper Galley panels. We may/will have to rebuild ours. The DampRid spilled and is in the particle board. The Damprid people said you can't get it out. [:(] I could just cry. This was after we had just done some nice mods and updating. I see a...

    Help! When DampRid attacks!

    We use good old Damprid and it works very well keeping out the moisture. But I had the container tip over sometime in the last month or two and it is soaked into the "wood" of the upper sink cabinet when it was in the down postion. Now it is swelling and absorbing moisture into the partical...

    How do I keep my 7-pin connector from corroding?

    I found my trailer side 7-pin connector corroded again. Since we don't get out but every 6 months or so [:(] , the plug sits out in the open for long periods. The brass connections turn green [:(O] . It takes a long time to take things apart and clean the contacts. Does anyone have an idea on...

    Factory parts-Bed shelf

    I had really wanted a bed shelf. Paul had made one out of wood, but I thought if I wanted a Factory one I better get a move on. Leisure Time RV near Orlando was kind enough to network with another dealer in SC to get me one. We just installed it this weekend at Camp Driveway. Wow, I had no idea...

    Just 29 minutes from Home

    We're back! We packed up, drove about 8 miles, and parked right next to the beach. The County run park was nice, although the lots were tiny and hard to back in to. Of course when your site is between 2 Class A's, you have to look good backing in [:D]. The big rigs took up their entire lot, and...

    First trip this year!

    We choose January 1st to go out for a couple of days. You know, Nice Florida sunshine, great weather, beautiful place to be in the Winter! So day 1 we put the camper up in the rain. It did rain almost all day. Noticed the sky was pretty grey too. Day two (January 2nd) it got cool. Really cool to...

    Change out Shocks?

    Our Wrangler Unlimited settles pretty good when the PU is hitched (fully load). The PU is almost dead level when attached. We get some 'bouncing' on uneven roads. Would a set of 'adjustable' shocks be a good investment? That way we could stiffen the rear when towing, but go back to the regular...

    Music to our ears

    <b>We have music <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">!</b> All thanks to Circuit City collapsing! We finally found a car radio/CD player and speakers cheap enough. We have been wanting to install a radio for a long while. Those boom boxes or...

    2004 Fleetwoods with dual tanks- A favor please!!

    Hey all, if anyone has a 2004 Fleetwood with dual LP tanks.... Could you send us a couple of pics of how your regulators are set up? Our High Pressure stove is not working (takes 10 minutes to boil a pan of water). Everything else works just fine. I am starting to think they have ours...

    Waiting to hear from lyz

    I think all of us are thinking about <b>lyz</b> and her 'pop'. Texas just caught h.ll, and we all are hoping lyz, and the rest of the Texans in the area are OK. Also those of you in Chicago are OK too, what with 5-8 inches of rain BEFORE Ike gets in the neighborhood. We care, and hope to hear...

    Swamp Walk 2008

    We just got back from our second Swamp Walk in the Everglades of Florida. Our first in 2005 was the interpretive walk. The guides tell about the flora and fauna associated with the 'glades. There is a lot about the micro climates in a small area, too. Our second trip was intended to be a photo...

    Solar system on 04 Niagara

    Got er done! We spent the weekend installing a 50W solar panel for battery charging! Did not think of the camera until way after we got done. Pictures to come. Our SIL found a panel we could us, we had a Thule rack from DW's VW which mounted fine after the extension bars. Next was the Pain in...

    Home made Bed Shelf

    Our 04 Niagara did not have a bed shelf and we missed it. After checking prices from Fleetwood, we decided it could be another mod. The bed poles already had holes drilled for a shelf which mad that part easy. The rest worked out pretty good. We'll be painting it to match the decor someday. This...

    Bird watching can be fun

    We spent a couple of days at the Oscar Sherer SP, about 15 miles from home. Partly a trip to relieve stress, and partly to do more checkout of the N2U camper. Our 2 mile walk on one of the trails became very interesting. We like the shrub jays that habitat here, but boy, did we get a surprise...

    Installing Solar Question

    I am about to set up my 50W solar panel for the PU. I need some help figuring out how to hook up the solar power. I only need battery charging, hopefully replacing what I use when dry camping. I am concerned about hooking up the solar regulator output directly to any battery cables already...

    High Pressure Stove. Is it really this slow?

    We have a High pressure outside stove with our Fleetwood. Is it supposed to be this slow? <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_sarcastic.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Sarcastic"> I took a pot of water inside to boil the last trip. We had an inside/outside stove on out Starcraft and sometimes it...

    We Sold it!

    Hurrah! We found a family for our beloved 94 Space Flyer. A young couple with son just drove out with it. They were tenters before and this is their first Pop-up. I went over everything twice and had him do it after me. Showed them all the bad spots and all the great mods. Made sure they...
