For me, even if we had an electric lift we would not use it as it takes so much power to do so and we dry...

    i love my popup because.....

    I love my pup because, science has proven that there are certain microbes in soil that raise serotonin levels in people. These microbes also float on the air in wooded areas. Hence we actually have a scientific reason why love our pups. Because they are actually raising our levels of stress...

    Our pup is a Highwall. And the fridge does have a reignitor. The problem is gone. What it was was corrosion on the reignitor. When i started it with the lighter, it "cleaned" the ignitor, now she works fine. Thanks for the help. Off in 2 days for our first trip of 2016. Whoot Whoot!!!

    All Systems Go!! Sorta

    I guess i don't have an issue with lighting it with a lighter. But does it shut off when it gets cold enough? Is the flame alway on, or does it come on and off? Feeling a bit lost at this point. I don't want to have to go out and light the thing when it shuts off. But if it stays on then sweet.
