Ahhh, camping in the rain.. now time for another fun filled round of “what’s leaking now?”


Recommended Posts

Before leaving the house I discovered the pump pre filter screen cover had a hole in it, so i epoxied it and am

Waiting for it to cure, meanwhile once i had hauled it an hour and 20 minutes in the pouring rain i have a puddle on the bathroom floor and wet all around the flange of the skylight in the bathroom ????not sure if it was related to the trip or if it was just exacerbated by it. Cant do much about it tonight, I’ll have to investigate in the morning. Ugh... i love camping, i love camping i LOOOOOVE camping.

Same boat here or should I say need a boat here. 

Had all the projects lined up for the long week end and every one required good weather

You can borrow this camper while you fix yours if you need to. You might want to have some extra tires on hand. Also you don't need to be in a hurry to bring it back.

You will be doing it on nice hot sunny day when you should be camping sitting next to the lake with a beer in hand

I tried SOOO hard to offer next weekend I would go camping and we could stay home and finish the bathroom, have the yard all cleaned up from bathroom and garden projects and wouldn’t need to hire someone to watch the critters because my in law’s would be back.. even offered to bring the trailer up Thursday night so she could head right up in the car... nothing doing.

I think every married man feels your pain had you disagreed the pain would have been worse

Don't have a camper any more but seemed like every memorial weekend we tried to camp was wet and cold! And yes something usually leaked.
