Dan, I'm mostly a TGR lurker, I think my handle is rtsideup. I post a little more on TTips. Basicly I think TGR is full of a bunch of teenage skier wannabees posting from their parents basements in Ohio; and TTips is a bunch of aging, cubicle dwelling, weekend warrior, Bay area nerd wannabees. I'd rather just watch, and ski, lots. I'm also the production Mgr. for Wagner Custom. Sorry for the digression folks, back to your regular scheduled programing.

In the mean time, I'm sure many members will add advice to this thread. I hope to monitor this to incorporate the information into a "Fiberglass Campers for Dummies" course.

I retired from the US Navy 17 years ago. One of my assignments was a 4 year stint as an Instructor at a Service School. I had to learn how to be an Instructor, and that experience serves me well to this day. My training was for writing lesson plans assuming the student knows nothing about the subject; exactly what you are looking for.

Here is a link to a project I completed some time ago:
Setting Up a Trailer in a Campsite
Checklist 8.0


"8.0" means that I re-wrote it 8 times. It is written specifically for my Fiber Stream trailer, but can be modified to be appropriate for any trailer.

It's 6 color-coded pages are designed to be printed out, and assembled as 3 "Recipe Cards"
  1. Boondocking
    • Arriving on the Front
    • Departing on the Back
  2. Full Hook-Ups
    • Arriving on the Front
    • Departing on the Back
  3. Storage
    • Arriving on the Front
    • Departing on the Back
These are all the tasks associated with the 3 types of places you will put your trailer. "Arriving" starts with you all hitched-up and pulling into a campsite (or a storage yard), and ends with with you unhitched and the trailer ready to camp in (or be stored). "Departing" starts with you set-up in a Campsite (or storage yard) and ends with you hitched-up ready to hit the road. Just select the card in which circumstance you find yourself in, and follow the 1 page step-by-step instructions that apply to that circumstance. I have personally tested them by arriving at a campsite with an inexperienced newbie friend of mine, handing him the appropriate card, and sitting back with a cold drink while HE set up camp.
by the time youre done with this list, the weekend is over.....

You are not alone. I feel that way about every other day with my Scamp project.

I just keep telling myself that a journey of a thousand begins with one step.
(Confucius? I don't know for sure)

There is so much I want to do to mine that I get distracted. I am working on choosing one project and seeing it to completion and before I know it, it'll be finished..._________

Leaving a blank space for the wise acre comments





me to on the overwhelmed. So nuch to learn and this stuff with the inverter/power/ac/dc/ and how that all operates.....oh dear and the generator, does mine even have one of those in it? I have no clue. Do you just plug it in to power and it does it's own thing or you click something? yep overwhelming indeed.
