    Just got a Hybrid and I have toilet/chemical questions??

    Just another day at work for me. Like to think it is a shitty job but it pays the bills. Actually it smells quite nice here given almost everything we make is fragranced. Only issue is when my lab mate is doing product testing (smell/pH/breakdown) of actual waste (his) in beakers. [:(O] Not...

    Just got a Hybrid and I have toilet/chemical questions??

    I've personally tested using chemicals in cassette toilet at work. Oh dear lord those things HAVE to be treated. If not for when they are used, then for when they are being dumped. I would use it a couple times and then wait a week before dumping it to let the smell build up. Treated they...

    Just got a Hybrid and I have toilet/chemical questions??

    Just to add my 2cents here. I have a TT, but I also work for a toilet chemicals company, one that hasn't been mentioned here :( and just wanted to add the folllowing: 1) As said earlier Water, use plenty of water to keep the smell down. Chemical/enzymes/deodorants don't do a thing if the...

    Thinking about moving to a TT, but don't want to regret it

    This topic has been discussed countless times and the more we camp with the TT vs our PUP the more it is clear one is not necessarily superior to the other. The PUP gave me a more "camping" feel, was easier to tow fuel economy wise, but had a lot of the drawbacks of tent camping in terms of...

    Back To Basics?... Camping or Glamping?

    Amen. I will say A/C is a must for me. I can put on more layers on in the winter, I can pack a cooler instead of the fridge, I can walk to a restroom or pit toilet, and I still cook over a campfire, but darn it I loathe sweating at night. We definitely glamp so now "camping" for me is more...

    Camping with a gas shortage?

    They are/were saying 60-70% of the stations in Wilmington were out of gas. The irony is that we don’t even get our gas from the pipeline as ours comes in by tanker to the port. They’ve already rerouted traffic away from the port's tank farm because of all tanker trucks in line to load up...

    Camping with a gas shortage?

    Just curious if the east coast gas shortage (hording really) is going to ruin people's plans for this weekend. Hope they have fixed by the end of the week like they say, but glad we went last weekend cause surely wouldn't be going this weekend if I wasn't certain there was gas where I needed...

    What do you pull your TT with?

    I'll third that. We moved up from a Rav 4 to a Highlander XLE (5000 lbs) to pull our small pup, but then moved to a TT. When shopping we tried our best to keep it within what the Highlander could manage and sleep 4 in beds. The 193BHS is 3500 dry/4700 GVWR but I still try my best to pack...

    Sites getting rare as spotted unicorns

    Not certain where you are in SC but we just did a Fri/Sat at Lee State Park and I'd say it was only half full. Normally camp in NC SP's, but given it is early we headed south of the border. Weather wasn't too bad for March. Real issue is the flooding from last month continues so the biking I...

    Less painful pack-up?

    Lots of good info here but didn't want this one to go un-emphasized. I'm high strung and always is a rush, but the DW is the exact opposite and loves to sleep in. Solution: Pack up what you can the night before so on leaving day you are only packing what can't already be packed up. Then the...

    Cell Phone Carriers

    I'd agree with this. I knew I'd be paying for second tier service, and you can tell that is what we get. But I'm willing to put up with second tier service for the $$ we are saving. One thing I like is the straight forward pricing. None of the $$/month before taxes gimmicks. When they say...

    hitch for bike rack

    I used the dual receiver Halford posted. Didn't have an issue bringing multiple bikes, but watch tight turns as the bike wheels would touch the PUP. I had plenty of tongue weight to spare as we had a small PUP and never had a issue with trailer sway YMMV. Honestly, I don't see why it would...

    Cell Phone Carriers

    Wife and I were in the same Cingular/AT&T boat until we switched to Cricket. Same company, same network, but getting more for less money. Sure we get second tier internet speed after a certain data cap, but I don't care about streaming video speeds. I care about the bill at the end of the...

    Returned from the Dark Side...

    Ours had an antenna/coax and a tv mount when we got it and I essentially scoffed at getting a 19" TV for the TT, but my wife paid for it with store credit so I couldn't complain. I'll admit it was used especially during our last trip when it rained all evening a couple times. Not that we sat...

    Returned from the Dark Side...

    Seems like I kicked a hornet's nest here. Clearly upgrade isn't the right word. For every advantage of TT has over a PUP you could list an advantage a PUP has over a TT. I would definitely wouldn't say a 5th wheel or a Class A/B/C was an upgrade from what we have. It is simply different and...

    Returned from the Dark Side...

    One of the reasons we upgraded. That and a toilet with a solid door. The Missus said if we upgraded she would go more often and to that end she has held up her end of the deal. We went dark in July and camped 5 times (10 days) in the following months. Compared to the 3 times year we...

    Hello! Got my first popup this week!!!

    Falls Lake will be a nice place to go. It is not in the middle of nowhere so if something happens civilization isn't too far. Like "crud I packed everything for tacos, but the ground meat..." There is a reason I'm so specific about that Lots of good tips so far. I'll add a couple based...

    When to replace tires due to age?

    Castle Rocks The are a few pages on the Forest River forums of owners detailing their blowouts on Castle Rocks at young age. My not quite 4 year old tires were older than a number of other people have gotten. Sadly it was probably Forest River trying to cut costs.

    When to replace tires due to age?

    Replace them all. Had the TT's original set of "China Bombs" blow on me within 30 miles of each other back in Oct. They were only 4 years old, but the brand has a horrible reputation. Had all 3 tires replaced given I'd seen pictures of spare's failing while still on the rack. The price of...

    Safety while camping

    Grew up along the Mississippi River and while we lived on high ground there were lots of folks who lived down in the flood plain. It was easy to know if you were in the flood plain as the rest of the county is hills and the flood plain is as flat as can be. Worst example was Kaskaskia Island...
