RE: What is it with campgrounds nowadays?

We primarily stay at KOA's when traveling. I've never been turned away or experienced the 'only site left' phenomena. We've even been accommodated in overflow sites twice while stopping overnight on long weekends; both campgrounds were filled to capacity. Maybe we've just been lucky.

RE: Survey-How do you reserve?

Only ever reserved for holiday weekends. Other times we just show up because we never know exactly where we'll end up; I hate giving in to a schedule! :E

RE: Leaving hot water tank turned on

When we're camping our's is on all the time when plugged into ac power. When we're boondocking on propane, we just leave it on for showers etc... but then shut it off when hot water is no longer needed.

RE: How do you carry water hoses?

Store our's drained and the ends attached in a open Rubbermaid container. I leave the top off the container to prevent mildew. Holy Cow!! A moderator and I agree on something. The sun will probably come out this afternoon. :B :C

RE: If a tire blows.....

I had four good tires on our race hauler years ago. Going to a track early one morning, temps were cool and pressures were good. The right front tire blew and it caused the right rear to shred. I was able to keep it on the blacktop but I it took both lanes on my side of the highway to get it under control and stopped. Not fun!! I was just lucky that I did not hit anything or roll the trailer, there was no skill involved at that point, just luck! I would never venture anywhere at highway speeds on 'iffy' tires, it's just not worth it. As mentioned, check our sources for some good used tires if you don't want to go new.

RE: Neat folding trailer

Neat design but I imagine it gets hot inside. My thoughts exactly, like living in a hothouse.

RE: Oppose slides

Those are Schwintek slides on Winnies. They use a rail system that requires power to the small motors mounted at the top ends of both slides. Once you hit the button, you should not stop the movement part way or you risk them going out of synchronisation. With this in mind, I would put out each slide individually because they need all the power they can get, especially on the way back in. You want to mitigate any opportunity for 'stalling' especially if your battery(s) is a bit low. I have them on mine also and I put them out one at a time.

RE: Ordering parts / accessories

The vast majority of stuff we need, I am able to find at Walmart.

RE: Cooking in the TT

We do not different than we do at home. If it's nice out and we're having 'grilling' food, we cook outside; if we're having 'stove top' type food, we cook inside on the stove or in our toaster oven. Never had a cooking odor issue in any rv we've owned. :C Just on a side note, we don't poop in the kitchen! :B

RE: Making up bed

We pull the mattress back to where we can reach, then make the bed and slide the mattress back in place.

RE: Backing up made easy

I grew up backing up tandem hay wagons; it didn't always work, but as a teenager, it was sure fun trying! :C

RE: Real world numbers

Depending upon where we are going and what we are doing, we'll add 600 lbs to 800 lbs.

RE: Do you grease the bars?

On my Equal-i-zer I only grease the socket areas of the hitch/head assembly, I grease nothing that touches the bars themselves.
