the "Bass" campground is a large circle with an open lawn in the middle and most of the campsites in the outer ring across the access road from this lawn. About 6 campsites are semi-circular pull-through bordering this lawn in the middle along one side of the circle, with the fire pit and picnic table between the lawn and the campsite driveway. The utility pedestal is between the access road and the campsite driveway. I have come to like one of these pull-through sites (#8) in an odd sort of way.
My Fiber Stream's body is not level on its frame but leans about an inch toward the passenger/curbside. If the site is perfectly level side-to-side I need to put each passenger/curbside wheel on one yellow leveling "Lego" brick to bring the refrigerator
and floor to level. It looks weird on a RV Resort concrete pad, but it works.
The 1st time I pulled into site #8 the "correct" way I noticed 2 things wrong:
- The trailer was 2-1/2" out-of-level toward the passenger/curbside
- As a gregarious person, I felt I was turning my back to all of the other campers.
#1 means 3 layers of Lego bricks to level the refrigerator
and a stepladder to enter the trailer. I did not have a stepladder with me nor enough Lego bricks to stack 3 layers high long enough for 2 axles.
So I left the site and drove around entering the access road from the "wrong" direction and pulled the Fiber Stream
into the site backwards. The trailer was perfectly level, no Legos required! And I could set up my awning
to face the access road and visit with anyone out walking their dog or just walking.
This however has its own consequences. I now have a 50' - 30amp extension cord to reach the pedestal, 50' of TV cable to reach the pedestal, and 50' of white hose to reach the water spigot. And I ignore the fire pit and picnic table behind the trailer.
