I'm confused!!

I know the 110 won't run the a/c I just want it running everything else.
Available anywhere (Walmart)...

you can get an adapter from most any RV store and some bigger walmarts. If you get a big 10x3 extention cord it likely will run your air too. I have one that will run mine, it is just start draw that is big on RV air.

Just got back from Wallyworld with the adapter. Thanks guys

Now I'm gonna wash it which makes me wish it were smaller and then plug her up and start playing.

Week after Thanksgiving I'm going to take the TT to our local state park and leave it there for a month or longer. Gonna set up a nice campsite and I'll stay out there for a week or so but also let my friends and the girls I work with use it... everyone is excited including me!

I haven't had problems running the A/C for our 23' on 110. We do it on a regular basis when we stop to visit friends and plug into the house (need to keep our dogs cool in the summer).

I do make a point of not running the microwave and put the fridge on propane. Usually the plug is on a 20amp breaker in the house.

There is a learning curve for setting up a TT

I had it all set up, all the jacks down, the truck unhooked, the plumbing and electrial attached and then I remembered the slide out and realized I was to close to the pole

Minor setback. Good luck and enjoy!

I can think of worse ways of realizing that.

Nice looking camper.

If no one has already told ya, keep one end of the awning lower than the other so water can shed off quickly. A moderate to heavy rain can and will rip it off yer camper. We've seen it happen on more than one.

Good idea to also show anyone who may be using it how to lower them.

Wait 'til you get to the stink pipe.

But it doesn't take too many times to figger out the short cuts.

Make sure your spotter looks up if you're camping and backing in a wooded camp ground. The top corners don't like trees. Sounds obvious but you'd be surprised.

I didn't post a pic of what I actually ended up buying this fall (till now) because it's not "little/light" but here it is anyway...





Coachmen Apex 214RB. 24 foot long but it is only 7 wide which makes it little-er than most these days. Makes for easier towing and the huge dinette slide somewhat makes up for the loss of width.


One glitch that I didn't take into account is that I have to unhook in order to load/unload the bikes. I have to fix this somehow.



@ Evilclown - The electric awning has an auto-dump feature. It has gas struts both sides. You lock the side that you don't want to dump. The other side will sag down and dump when just a little bit of water builds up.

Take it off and use a side rail mount.

I thought about that but I don't think it will work with the weight dist bars. I was thinking maybe I would weld more flat plate on the tongue and move the existing jack back.

Pop the gate out, turn the truck about 60 deg right and off you go.
