    The recent talk of the forum changing got me thinking. This topic started in 2008. Three pages of posts from that year and only one user @Snow is still around, at least that post enough that i recognized the name. Forums are cyclical things.

    Pie irons are also great to keep blowing sand out of cooking hamburgers or whever else you are cooking even if its not a pie.
    But the pie iron fruit pies are sooo good.!

    The best thing we purchased were solar charged lights!! We have one inside our screened area which we put over picnic table, the second one was inside the 'outhouse/changing' tent. Better than flashlight, and they don't get hot!

    We got a plug in cooler as a wedding gift. we have it plugged in as e travel to site, and at camp, have it plugged in starting in early afternoon and keep it out of the sun. Overnight unplug and into mid morning/early afternoon, food stays cold. It's like having another mini-fridge!

    I'm a new pup and I was wondering is an RV cord the same as an outdoor/indoor extension cord.

    In most cases, they are not the same. An RV cord has a different rating. RV's that run multiple AC usually have 50 amp cords. Most pups that run one or no AC have 30 amp cords. Most household extension cords are 20 amp.

    HERE are some more details.

    It's hard to say exactly what you are talking about; it would be very helpful to know what trailer you have, as well as maybe some pics to help with your question.
    I'll guess that you are talking about the cord for plugging the camper in for 120 volt power. If that is the case, no it is not the same.

    My pup didn't come with keys and I don't have any idea how to get keys. My neighbor said some times keys on your key ring might fit?
