    Mystery Part on Tongue

    This is used for sway control. There would be similar little ball on the hitch and a friction bar would attach between the two.

    2012 flagstaff 228D. No Power

    Check all the fuses on your converter. We had one blown on our previous camper (2009 Rockwood HW296) that would not allow the 12V from the battery into the converter.

    Headed to Disney/Fort Wilderness… Thoughts, ideas?

    We went to Ft Wilderness last December. We drove from San Antonio so we went I-10. On the way there we stopped at a KOA just outside Pensacola, FL. Stay the night and head into Orlando the next day. Unless you are planning to visit NOLA I wouldn't, we take the I-12 to Baton Rouge and...

    Thinking of using a Portable Air Conditioner. Thoughts???

    On our first popup, a 1980 StarCraft with a 9 ft box, we used a Portable A/C. Ours was a 14k Btu, it worked okay. We have had better luck with a 13.5K roof mount. Many Portable A/C's claim the don't need draining. While I don't know how humid IL is, but here in South TX we would have to...

    Looking for a good beach that allows campers

    They allow beach camping at Padre Island National Seashore (PINS) and at Mustang Island State Park. Both of these are near Corpus Christi, TX. PINS does have a 'campground', but it is more like a parking lot. However, you can see the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Mustang Island has a...

    12 Volt Shower Anyone??

    I personally have not used one. But last Christmas we went to South Padre Island and there was a snowbird (from Ohio I believe) who used one daily in the showers as they don't have any hot water in them. He would boil water and put it in two 5 gallon buckets and use that handheld shower.

    Portable Air Conditioning unit

    Our first PUP was a 1980 StarCraft. We bought a 13K BTU portable A/C for it. We used vent it out where the tent ends zipped together. It was not the most efficient setup, during the day it would get warmer that the set temp. But after the sun went down it would cool off well. Those that...
