Since we are not going to use the PC until 12/26  (78 more days but who is counting) I've cleaned everything.  I've washed all the bedding including mattress pads and comforters.  Now where to store them.  Do you store them all folded in the PC or do you take them in the house?  Do you store them in space bags or cabinets or???   Our PC is kept in the garage so it is out of the elements.  Just wondering what others do during that off camping season.

636  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: The new Xantrex Pro Inverter - how does it work? on: October 08, 2012, 07:17:20 pm
The 120V outlet in the bath and 120v outlet under the sink in the kitchen are also active when the inverter is turned on.

The A/C and microwave are not run off the inverter but I'm not sure if the aerobed is powered off the inverter.

The inverter provides 1800watts or about 15 amps which is a typical household circuit.

The generator provides 4000 watts or about 33 amps which is what is typically provided by shore power.  As far as I know the entire PC is powered from the generator.

These would not work because the rollers themselves are much longer and these would not span the entire roller.  They are also not large enough to allow for any "oops" factor if you missed the roller and they got caught underneath the refrigerator.  Could pose a very big problem by getting caught in the slide mechanism.
I would guess that PC cut the pads to be about 8 X 8 so as accommodate the entire roller and also make sure that the pad is not caught in the mechanism.

     W P Franklin also has a walk up site that is non-reservable.  Maybe when you get there you can make arrangements for that site and then stay longer.  That early in the season there might not be anyone in the walk up site.  Could get it under Vince's Senior Pass!!!!

     With the weight of the slide and the rollers needed for the mechanism we noticed that there were two very small indentations on the vinyl flooring.  After the slide is out for a little while they do go away but we were worried that they might just make a permanent dent in the vinyl flooring. 
     We talked to Kermit the other day and asked him if it would be okay to place something under those rollers when we bring the slide in to prevent any indentations on the floor.  He said that it would be a good idea and he would recommend it.  He said not to use anything more than 1/8 inch thick.
     We had a couple of pieces of the vinyl flooring that PC uses so we cut out two small pads and now when bringing the slide in we place them on the floor so that the rollers rest on them and not directly on the PC flooring.  It is easy to do, works great and now the weight of the slide is on the pads and not directly on the floor.  When we put the slide out we found that there is no longer any indentation directly on the floor but only on the pads that we are placing under the rollers.

642  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / America the Beautiful Senior Pass on: October 02, 2012, 08:52:45 pm
Thought I'd post this tip for those Seniors (62+) that are not familiar with the America the Beautiful Senior Pass.  The website is  What is great about this pass is that camping fees at most federal parks are half price.  So those going to WP Franklin this winter (since it is a Corp of Engineering Park), with an America the Beautiful Senior Pass pay half price (i.e. $12).  You also get free admission into the Narional Parks as well as half price on most other fees such as Ranger Tours.  The  pass covers entrance and standard amenity fees for a driver and all passengers in a personal vehicle at per vehicle fee areas (or up to four adults at sites that charge per person).  So if you don't personally qualify but your spouse does you can ride on his pass (as I do).

They require that you have your pass with you and you need to also show ID.

     We are going to be camping near you from 1/10/13 for two weeks.  After we leave WP Franklin we head over to the St. Lucie locks for two weeks.  I think Vero Beach is a short distance north of Stuart.  If you can't get a site there for a few days stop on by.  Cheers

Barry and Sue

PS - Just saw your post - we'll see you Jan 2.  Looking forward to it.  And I think site 22 is a nice pull thru site even though it is described as a back in.  PARTY at the WP Franklin Locks on the second of JAN.

     After we polyurethaned we just let it air out and never had an issue with the fumes.
