    Carpeting the camper floor...

    Hi... I didn't know weather to post this here or roof/floor repair and maintance. It's not exactly repairor maintance, so I am posting it here. We have a brand new piece of leftover carpet from my MIL's new house. There is plenty left to cover the floor in the camper. My question is. Never...

    Quoting one sentence instead of the whole post?

    There have been many times that I am reading a long post and I want to reply to just one sentence. The only way I can figure out how to quote that sentence is to quote the entire post. I know it can be done because I have seen others do it on here. Thanks in advance for your help...

    To anyone on the fence about Pop Up Gizmos

    First let me say, I searched for the best thread to post this on. This is the best I could find... At the end of our camping trip this morning, we tore town a little differently. Normally we don't take down the gizmos until after everything inside is finished. Today, as my DW was putting things...

    How Long Does It Take You - Set Up/Take Down

    I have found that when setting up by my self, it takes me considerably less time than when DW and I do it together. Sorry Dear, but it's just that way... Either way, it takes forever. Yes, we have some extra items like, PUG's, Reflectix in the windows, Awning Mat, Oh ya - Satelite Dish (10...

    How do you collect Grey Water

    Ever since we lost our grey water tank somewhere along a 120 mile trip, we have been looking for a way to collect the grey water. Those storage tanks are very expensive. Right now we are using a 5 gallon bucket to collect the dish water etc. It does fill up rather fast and before we know it...

    1# Propane Bottles (Old and Rusted)

    Ok... Because of another thread, I bought one of those Refil Fittings for the small bottles. I went through the garage and the shed and found 4 or 5 old bottles but on closer examination, I found that the threads (from sitting) have a little bit of rust on them. I put them in one location in the...

    Extra Awning

    Well, we did it. After only a few minutes of searching the Internet one night, DW found a used but very nice 9' awning. It's a little more than a foot shorter than our existing awning but it will work just fine for what we want it for. Because of a mishap on our first camping trip of the year...

    Bearing Buddy's

    Can anyone explain to me why (or why not) I would need bearing buddy's? Maybe someone could possibly also explain to me what they are used for. On my boat trailer (many years ago) I had the bearings go while on a trip close to home. The wheel wobbled toward the inside of the axil but didn't fall...

    Oh No!!! There Goes The Awning!!!

    Our first camping trip of the year went very well. We enjoyed ourselves so much. Then as we were packing up to come home and just before it was time to take down the awning, the unthinkable happened. A freak wind came up and the awning ripped right off the side of the camper. It's a bag awning...

    Planing ahead storage question

    We just recently took our pup out of winter storage, covered in my back yard. I worried all winter about over night heavy snows and possibly receiving unwanted winter guests (mice) as well as a hoast of other worries. After taking the cover off and opening her up, everything was fine. I heard...

    To anyone with a ProRac Bike Rack

    Do you keep your ProRac Bike Rack attached to your camper between trips or do you take it off? Mine is off right now, but I am thinking about attaching it and leaving it on through out the Summer. I'm just worried about rust. The brackets look like they would rust up pretty quick.

    It Was A Happy Day!!!

    Today was the day. We went out around noon today, took the winter cover off our pup and opened her up for the first time since Oct. 26th. My worries about mice getting inside, didn't happen. Knock on wood... All we found was one spider that was hardly moving with the cold air. We sprayed a...

    I'm So Depressed

    With the first camping trip of the year planned for April 15th. I was taking a buddy of mine on a fishing trip to a place we have never been before. The trout stream runs right threw the campground. Now this stream won't keep trout for an extended period so the fish has to be stocked by the...

    Mod Article In Pop Up Times - Question

    We have done zero mods since buying our used pup. I found an easy mod in the new issue of Pop Up Times that I would like to do. Check it out. It's on page 19. It's a simple 1" dowel rod cut to length to fit between your door straps. My question is... Where would someone find the snaps to screw...

    Wall mount electric heater or propane

    DW and I were talking last night about getting a wall mounted electric heater for the pup. We looked at several on-line and haven't made a decission on exactly what to buy. Our thoughts are, since we always camp with shore power, why not save on propane and and heat with electric. I understand...

    First trip of the year coming soon

    We have had reservations set for our first trip the weekend after Easter, but last night I had an idea. I asked my DW if she wouldn't mind if I took an earlier trip without her. I talked to a good friend of mine about staying a few nights at a campground with a nice section of trout stream...

    Pup Television Stand

    Has anyone built a Television Stand for their pup? I'm looking for ideas... I'm thinking about something simple that will keep the satellite box and all the wires contained and off the dinet table that it will sit on. Maybe about 4" high and the TV will sit on top. DW wants it clamped down some...

    Canopy - Screen house and the like

    Many years ago, Before DW and myself were together. I bought a quality screen house that I used almost every tent camping trip. This screen house was 14' X 14' and lasted many years. As I said it was good quality but with aluminum poles and such, it was a heavy bugger and kinda difficult for one...

Something I should have done...
