Shhhhhh, don't blow the nightly free entertainment!
LOL........... That was the best part of check in time, unfortunately for us we didn't have a lot of back in's, but the ones we did have provided a lot of entertainment over the years.................... Actually about 50 percent of the people would ask my Dh to back them in. Or ask me to guide them, they would attempt to avoid a fight with their spouse. But then they would get out of the truck and look at their spouses and say, why can't you guide me in like she did. LOL........ The fight would be on!
Ok, now for my newbie suggestion/suggestions.
Backing into a campsite at night in the pitch dark forested campground, for the first time, I knew I would be all over the place if I just went for it so like the others I got out and with a flash light
I checked out the site. Then I took a little yellow lantern we have and I put it down on the ground where I wanted the drivers side trailer tire to be, or as close as I could get it
Then I backed in to the lantern! Success! First try! And in the morning when I could actually see what the site was really all about, I was surprised that I had stuck the trailer in the perfect spot and no adjustment was needed for a week stay.
I have now purchased a little foldable emergency light
up triangle that can be used for two purposes. Emergency roadside marker as well as a backup marker for those late night pull in's.
I second Greg's suggestion! Get out and camp and enjoy!
Newbie suggestion #2, Before
plugging into the electrical
, turn off breakers! It takes 1 second to turn off the breaker and turn it back on after you have securely placed your plug into the box.
