    Seasonal Camping

    Sidebar: When I was growing up in Minnesota, I had never heard the term "snowbird" in the context of a person who wintered in a warmer clime than his primary residence. A "snowbird" was a car that had not been moved before the snowplows arrived, and was plowed-in.

    5er toy hauler or DP & Trailer?

    The pusher turned out to be a bad investment. When the engine failed in Indiana, I decided that I was not putting any time or money into it. Bought a 2006 Gulf Stream Super C on a Chevrolet Kodiak MDT chassis. It isn't a diesel, though. 8.1 gasoline, like my Suburban. Tows better, and bends better also due to the hitch configuration.

    Auto Levelers

    Thanks. I wonder if the original installation was Equalizer Systems. This is on a 2006 Gulf Stream Conquest Super C built on a Chevrolet Kodiak chassis. Engine is 8.1L gasoline. If the original was Equalizer Systems, someone may have put in a completely different control system and mounted the switches in the Equalizer Systems plate just because that plate fit in the Kodiak council.

    It appears that at least the mounting place is from Equalizer Systems.

    Thank you! Now I just have to find out if only the plate was from them.

    RV levelers

    Does anyone recognize this leveler controller? I want instructions on how to use it. I'd go to the net to find the manual, but I don't know what it is. The round switch on the upper left of the panel is apparently an on/off switch added by persons unknown. IMG_1008 Mystery jack system controls. by philethier, on Flickr

    What kind of jack system is this? I want instructions. The round rocker switch is an on-off switch added by person unknown. IMG_1008 Mystery jack system controls. by philethier, on Flickr

    How do you travel around once set up at a park?

    Well, somebody needs to tell security at the Walmart I went to in Milwaukee. The security guy Hassled me several times when I just wanted to search the internet for tern minutes.

    RV Mattress Best Choices

    We had a great experience with The Original Mattress Factory for our short queen innerspring. Only 50 bucks extra for the custom size. No extra charge for the "hinge", which is not detectable when you are sleeping on it, but allows you to fold the mattress top to bottom for ease of entry to the MH, and is also a help when you flip the mattress. The hinge was a no-charge extra on the queen, but the salesman said they routinely include it on king.

    Texas Border Check Points?

    I always carry my passport card in my wallet. In 2009, a California inspector searched all of my trailer and the TR4 it contained. She showed no interest at all in the Coachmen Freelander that was towing it. We could have had a hundred watermelons in there....

    Did you watch the eclipse?

    Absolutely worth taking the vacation time for. I know that on your last year on the job you may get paid in cash or kind for unused vacation, but this is worth the exchange.

    Overnight parking at Costco?

    Thanks for the quick and courteous info, BlueLgtning and sandsys. To many fora on the internet are populated by jerks who will denigrate you for asking what they perceive to be a stupid question. Great to be on a forum with nice folks! The joke I have often used is "Please don't use TLAs".
