    Ever 'rented' your camper?

    Allowed “a friend” to use it the second week at a provincial park. Camper has not been the same since. They left bug spray on the Sill and ruined the paint. The outside stove performance is poor since they must have boiled over food on the burners. I can’t even imagine if they had to...

    The lights went out- help!

    Check each fuse with a continuity tester as well as the bulbs. See if there is voltage getting to the socket and work your way back to the converter. Best of luck.

    Has anyone camp knowing it will rain

    Always go! Enjoy it for what it is. Take an extra tarp or a popup shelter. Take cards, friends and have a great time. Listen to rain.

  11. M from Canada eh?

    For all my Canadian friends.... Due to a SPUT, I needed a new plunge pin for my tongue jack and called all around unable to find one. Fearing the worst I called etrailer's 1-800 number to see what the damage would be for a $6.80 part. I expected $20 to $30 for exchange, shipping, duties etc...

    Leaking Roof Vent

    I am not f.amiliar with the design, and pics would be good but I would remove the vent, check for hidden damage, replace any gasket and/or use a silicone caulking around the seam. That,s what I did with my fantastiik roof vent and have 5 years on it and still holding.

    Why do you like the LED lights

    Same here, just for the power savings as we don't usually camp with hookups. Not to mention DW, DS and DD seem to forget to turn the lights off when leaving the pup....

It has wintered under a shelter every winter...

    Bonnechere Provincial Park (Ontario)?

I don,t fish the lake much as we are normally fall and spring campers. It's too busy in the summer months but perhaps Allan's shop can advise. Have a great...

    Ambitious Road trip looking for gotchas

    Check the age and wear on the tires. There are a couple of threads here on reading date codes. Even if not worn down the age can be a problem especially on a long trip.
