    not Alarming

    I called forest River and talked to their warranty guy. Says in the manual to check and maintain every 3 months. I told him I don't see cracks now so I would not have seen any 3, 6, 9, or 12 months ago. I spent 16000.00 on a pup and have had heater problems, battery problems. The liitle door to...

    not Alarming

    Figure I would start a new thread. I called the service dept. and lo and behold, they said exactly what I thought they would say, I have to check all the seals every three months. WHAT!!!! I knew they would blame it on me...ANYONE in the SE PA area, never go to MEDIA camping center. They have 3...

    Strange thing happened...Got a call at 6AM from next door saying my smoke alarm in the pup was keeping them awake. I don't like them anyway(hehe). problem was, pup has been closed up for over a month. I raised the roof just enough to fit in there and pull the battery. I unhooked the cover to the...

    1st time using awning

    If I can't set up before I raise the roof, and I don't bring a 6' ladder, I'm screwed.

    Backing up a camper

    I feel your pain. I don't have problems at the sites, but I could charge admission to let people watch me back into my driveway. I don't live on a wide street. And if there is a parked car right across from my driveway it gets real hairy. When I get it in just enough to fit my wifes car in then...

    First time with hook ups

    I have a fresh water tank but never use it so I can't help there. For my gray water, I was emptying into a bucket then pouring down the sewer pipe at the cg. But now I rigged up some pvc and a sewer hose to do that. As for 50 amp service, 50 is for the big boys. My pup uses 30 amp for my a/c...

    injury in the family

    My poor tv just got walloped this morning. Funny thing was, I stopped by my sis-inlaws house to do a favor for her because her car got walloped an hr before. I drove up the street to make a left turn into a driveway to turn around and some clown decided to cross the double yellow lines and pass...

    Things NOT to do when camping

    My awning went a flippin over the weekend. Nothing happened thank god. But last yr I broke one of the poles. Maybe 2 dollars worth of aluminum and Flagstaff wanted 110.00 to replace one half of the frame. All I needed was a 3ft part that slides in and out. So now I spare parts.

    My dealer told me to use a gal of bleach and 9/10 gals of water. My black and gray tanks are both 12 gals. I load up. Drive to CG to swirl it around and drain them when I get there. Before I leave I just flush out the tanks with water and a little bleach.

    FreeMason Campers

    I don't belong to any fraternity. I haven't seen any campers in need of help on the road yet. I would stop and help any way could though. But I can't say I'd stop for everyone. I usually have my wife and kid with me and their safety is number 1. I figure campers(and I hope I'm right) are just...

    camping with parakeets

    Took my dog camping every time so far with no issues. My son talked me into getting him a couple of parakeets. So i guess if I can't get a bird sitter I'll be bringing them along. They are pretty quiet at night but who knows what will happen in the pup. Gonna be an adventure.

    Is motorized crank worth it?

    My Flagstaff has a motorized crank.........good thing too...I killed the battery one time and had to hand crank up and down........I would say it took maybe 8 or 900 cranks to get it up , then the same to get it down. Just the way it's geared. The one problem if it is a problem, is that I have...

    Please be carefull out there

    So sorry about this loss. I'm a biker and I have been lucky. But I know some people who haven't been. You have to respect your bikes, atvs or whatever and respect the danger involved. And yes, know your limitations.

    top half swaying

    Not sure what topic to post this on so here goes nothing. I have my pup up in my driveway. I always do this after camping to do mods or clean out. The other day we had a wicked storm. Just about 8 or 9 mins but it was bad. I wasn't at home and didn't expect it. One of the poles(the one that...
