    Generator break-in period advice

    Hello all, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Predator 3500 generator because I'll be going to a music festival this year and don't want to bring a loud generator. I'll be unboxing it this weekend and starting the break in period. I'm pretty savvy when it comes to general motor maintenance as...

    My new-to-me Dutchmen

    In preparation for my wedding ceremony in two weeks at my cabin the fiance and I needed to make some more sleeping arrangements for guests who don't want to drink and drive. We were going to borrow this Dutchmen pop up from our friends parents because  they don't use it now that they own a fifth...

    Yikes! Just saw an overturned camper.

    I'm driving my delivery route today and I just passed an overturned camper on I35 N while I was going south. Looked like a Jeep grand cherokee and a camper about 20-25 feet long. Obviously I don't know the actual numbers, or the circumstances of the accident, but at a casual glance I'd say it...

    If you don't own one, I recommend a propane fire pit!

    In a previous post I mentioned I was just recently camping in Wisconsin Dells for a week. Before the trip I bought a propane fire pit from Fleet Farm for $60. It's got folding legs, 3 heat settings, lava rock to cover the burner, and comes with a bag to store it. It's meant for the 2lb throwaway...

    Do you offer to help a fellow camper?

    This question comes out of my recent trip to Wisconsin Dells. Now I know you're not supposed to offer help to anyone backing or pulling into a site. Hence, that's why I watched a guy tow his camper around the campground 5 times, and back it into 2 different sites before he got it right. That's...

    Discount Tire house brand Hartland Radial tire

    Does anyone have any experience with this particular brand of tire? I blew a tire on my camper yesterday pulling it into town, and I'm supposed to leave on a trip on Friday. I'm going to bite the bullet and replace all 4 tires, but unfortunately I am on a budget and can't throw the best of the...

    Predator 3500 inverter generator worth looking at?

    I'm looking for a new generator that's quieter than my current one. Granted so far the only time I use my "contractor" genny is when I go on hunting trips out in the woods, but I could imagine a circumstance in which I may need a quieter one in a park or some other place in close proximity to...

    Using toyhauler garage space

    With the holiday fast approaching I have need to house additional guests at our family cabin. I just bought my toyhauler, but it doesn't have a definitive bed. It just has a dinette and couch that convert. I looked at the 7x12 empty garage space and came up with a perfect sleep solution that is...

    Who makes an electric tongue jack with remote control?

    So probably 2 or 3 years ago I bought my parents an electric jack for their camper and it came with a remote control. Pretty sure I paid somewhere around $130, but I can't remember the brand. I did a brief internet search today and the only ones I can find with a remote are built by Husky and...

    How hard is it to replace 18' awning fabric?

    I'm buying a used trailer that needs new fabric on the awning. It's a roller type, not motorized. A local dealer would do it for $400+/- while I can buy the one piece fabric myself for $170. I am very mechanically inclined, have tools and know how to use them. I read one description and it...

    Opinions or advice on 2003 campmaster by roadmaster toyhauler TT

    So while talking to my boss the other day the idea was broached of him selling me his 2003 Campmaster toyhauler trailer. It's a 24ft model I believe, where it's half garage, half basic living area. From what research I've done it seems this brand is either no longer in business or has morphed...

    Anyone have experience with forest river popups, or toyhauler popups?

    Right now I'm considering either a Rockwood 282tesp or Flagstaff 28tscse popup toyhauler. They are essentially the same camper just different color scheme and name, both are made by forest river. They are both capable of hauling two wheelers, king and queen beds, slide out dinette, casette...

    Need advice about a GFCI outlet

    Ok this isn't RV related but I know there's a few of you who know electricity out there so I'm asking for some advice. Last year at my cabin we trenched and laid in ground rated 3 wire to put outlets at various spots around the cabin yard. All total we did 4 lines, each line independent with...

    Pics of my cargo trailer/camper conversion

    There has been some interest in seeing my current project of converting my enclosed cargo trailer into a camper. I have a 6 x 14 x 6 aluminum v nose trailer . I've been making modifications to it all summer in order that I can use it as a cargo trailer primarily for my atv, but also use it as a...

    Trailer to camper conversion, electric question

    Hi all I'm new here and will try to be brief. I have an enclosed aluminum cargo trailer that I've slowly been turning into a multi purpose rig that I can camp in, haul my atv, and still use as a cargo trailer. I've already done a simple addition of 120v electric by installing a port the outside...
