RE: Bathroom on the road?

If you don't want to carry water in your fresh water tank carry a gallon jug or two in the shower to flush with. Exactly what we do especially if it is to clod to carry water in fresh water tank. My wife refuses to use anything but her clean rv toilet.

RE: Checking on Wheel Bearing Heat

Yes, they should be close although the side receiving the sun will be elevated. I use an infrared temp gun from Harbor Freight and it makes checking temps very easy. They are very reasonable there.

RE: Pay showers?

We went on a canoe trip years ago and tent camped there before we got an RV. It had pay showers that were a quarter for 4-5 minutes. They were converted car wash controls and had wash , rinse and wax! We got quite a few laughs out of that.

RE: Outdoor Kitchens

We had a small outside kitchen in our last 5th wheel a Keystone outback. It was used when we got it and the kitchen was right by the door. When looking at it I felt a spongy place by the door. I told the seller it had a leak and damage to the floor. He disagreed and said it had always felt that way. I told him I was sure of it and made him an offer that deducted the cost of fixing the floor. At first he refused it but, 2 or 3 days later he called to accept it. As soon as I got it home I pulled up floor and there it was a rotten section of floor. The outside kitchen door folded down and the top of the door frame pulled away from the side. I pulled the door out and resealed it and then tore out the section of floor that was rotten and re-enforced the support structure. Took me 3 days but it fixed it. Later ,even though I had resealed the kitchen door it leaked again so I quit using it. I'd never buy one with an outside kitchen unless there is a different design.

RE: Backing that trailer into a tight campsite..

I guess I am blessed to have had a father who started me early at 8 yo backing a short tongued trailer with a riding lawn mower. More than once I have watched tortured souls trying to back a trailer in and asked if I could help. When I got a yes I would ask if they minded letting me drive. Usually I have backed it in on the first try. If I can drive in forward then, I can back it in. One time the wife's GPS on her phone took us into a residential area and after driving in with a couple 90* turns we came to a dead end. My wife said "What now? " then I backed our 30' fifth wheel all the way out.
