    Seasonal Camping with a PUP

    My wife is pressing me to get something at a seasonal camping site. I have generally resisted this option as I like to go to different places. It is a nice camp ground - almost all seasonal and only $2000 for the season. I really don't want to go to the expense of getting rid of the PUP and...

    Traveling with your Fridge on?

    I have often wondered if I am doing the correct thing or not.... I don't like traveling with a cooler, so what I do is pack up the fridge with all our food before the trip - like just before. What I do then is switch the fridge to 12V and 'assume' that the car power will power the fridge...

    Do I have mould?

    So I guess I am no mould expert, but.... We have a nice little rockwood, and this summer we noticed some black stuff on the b/e on the side cover (on the inside). Looked like dirt - I figured my son put his dirtly feet on the side, so I wiped it off and all was well. Next time camping it was...

    I'm sure that is a question that all of us ask me as well...... Just a thought.... I was at the dump today dropping of a small load and it occured to me that they have weigh scales at the dump! I asked the attendant if they would allow me to weigh my camper there and "sure, no problem. We get...

    So have you ever done this? We were on our way camping a few weeks ago, motoring along the QEW and a sudden coffee urge hit is - me at least. You know the feeling. Anyway, we hopped off the highway to visit our local Tim's for a java break.... I pull in the parking lot without thinking and...

    Tekonsha Voyager vs Prodigy Brake controller

    Can someone tell me the difference? I am told and have read that the Prodigy brake controller is much better (and more expensive). I have the Voyager model. I have not been using it for that long, but for the most part am happy with it. Seems to work fine. Takes a bit of fiddling to get it...

    Floor conditions and treatments

    Over the course of the past years, I have had a couple of campers. My last one had a 'soft floor' in a couple of places where water had infiltrated. So to my concern/question...... I climbed under my camper and took a look at the floor - by the looks of it, it is just plain chipborard with...

    Towing Mirrors

    A few years ago I had a PUP, and with that one, towed behind my Escape, I didn't see the need for towing mirrors on TV.... I could easily see over the trailer from rearview and could resonably see around from the side mirrors. I now have a new PUP, and it sit much higher as it has 13" tires. I...

    how I turbo'd my 3-way fridge

    I don't know if this is common, but I bought a Rockwood 1910 a bunch of years back. First time we used it I was severely disappointed with the performance of the 3-way fridge... it got cool, but not what I was hoping. My little Coors light mountains would not turn blue! I suspect that this is...
