    This Camper is a Lemon

    My BIL did the same thing to a pup. Then in was stolen. Then it was found.

    Battery recommendations for off grid with electric lift

    Last year, before we sold our pup, I upgraded the battery box from a Group 24 battery to a Group 27 battery. The reason we did this is the same as you describe, we do a lot of dry camping and boondocking. I also bought a new Duracell Deep Cycle battery from Batteries Plus. Upgrading to a Group...

    Fresh water drain

    Awning Weights

    I used THESE from Camco with limited success. They held the awning down very well but I got over confident and left the awning out when the wind was too high (sudden storm). The stakes held, but one of the vertical poles cracked at the connection joint because it was not designed to hold against...

    Nighttime Fan

    We use THIS one. One of the best camping purchases I ever made. It is rechargeable and very quiet on lower settings, very powerful on higher settings.

    Loud "clunk" in cable when winching roof up

    As stated above, it appears that it is the cable on the spool realigning itself or the support brackets sleeves dropping into place. My pup did both of these on a regular basis. I never did get used to it. It always made me think the roof was about to crash down on me. But it never did. If it...

    1998 Coleman Niagara Value

    The "fair price" is whatever the buyer is willing to pay. I know, that is pretty vague. But it is true. Whatever you think is a fair price is what you should pay. From what you describe, I certainly would not pay NADA prices. A few years ago, I had a coworker that wanted to sell me his pup for...

    Jackery Explorer 500 Portable Power Station - First Impressions

    It sounds like you are on par with what we have found with the Jackery power usage. We used our Jackery 500 this past weekend to run our two CPAP's (no humidifiers) and charge the phones each night. I found we used about 18%-19% of the power each night. We used the Jackery 1000 to run the...

    May 2022 - what did you do for your camper?

    She turned me into a newt. I got better.

    May 2022 - what did you do for your camper?

    Our popup had a hanging shelf over the stove that we added a paper towel holder to. We had a close call with that placement and learned our lesson not to hang the towels anywhere near the stove.

    May 2022 - what did you do for your camper?

    THIS is the one I bought. It was a toss up between this one and a very similar magnetic one that would attach to the stove vent hood. I finally went with this one because I didn't want the paper towel holder near the stove.
