As many of you know, our family took a week long vacation last week with our new travel trailer. Hubby was up for the weekend and then had to go back home for work. So the children and I were fending for ourselves (except when Grandma came to visit). Being tent campers for years, we pretty much knew it all (HAHAHA). I am one to do my research and be as thorough as I can. Guess I missed a chapter or two on camping with your Travel Trailer! HA We felt a little like The Griswolds last week!
Here are a few pieces of advice for new campers using their trailer for the 1st time....
IF rain is predicted upon arrival to your site, 1st set up your awning and then take out all your
crap supplies and put them under the awning. not the other way around - rest assured it will downpour the minute you take all the supplies out and the awning is NOT up.

"They say" to use 1 ply toilet paper for a reason! Don't bring your 2 ply Cottonelle which is nice and soft on your tushie. Reason being - it will clog and back up your black holding tank with no questions asked! Let me tell you, giving your septic tank (aka black tank) an enema with a garden hose and watching all
crap waste come out is something that no husband and wife should ever have to do together! (I had to call hubby to come BACK up after work one night to help)
My last piece of advice, only if you drink alcohol, bring enough! Then bring more....
Be sure to check back all week to read about some interesting stories and escapades from our camping adventure!
Until then...be blessed!
