Thank you for the kind invitation Jim, I would LOVE to come over and discover ways to spend your money. :

I will drop you a PM but it probably won't be for a couple of weeks, have some work related travel coming up over the next few weeks.

Actually most of the 2012 flood damage at least in the three sisters campground has now been mitigated.. the loop and sites that were blocked off last spring are now open and accessible but your running out of time for an inspection this year.. campground closes for the winter after next weekend :-(

Hi Robert as we sold our 19 this last summer we weren't able to camp... but we did get one last camping trip in on our way back from ordering our new 5.0TA and stayed there, it just wasn't quite the same, although the vegetation and campground I would imagine should look pretty good by 2015 if we don't get anymore floods.

Cheers Doug

I am headed over to Banff tomorrow for a site with power to use electric heat to get me through the cold spell this week. Its going to be so cold Tuesday morning I might have to plug in the truck also ;-)
So I did chicken out and headed over to Banff Tunnel Mountain II for the cold spell. The -28C temps nicely mitigated by 30amps of juice for the trailer, 15amps for the truck block heater, and a warm and spotless wash/shower house for me ;-)

Robert, how do you effectively manage condensation under the bed and elsewhere within the trailer under these weather conditions?

I've got the u-shaped seating area in the rear (no dinette there) so I'm 100% cushions in my trailer. Two cold weather advantages to that vs the traditional mattress in that location .. more insulation in the trailer (additional 3in thick wall cushions in the complete rear area).. and all the escape cushions have the vinyl backsides and areas against the walls.. probably to resist wear in the summer but are 100% effective against condensation that inevitably forms on the walls behind the cushions when its -28c.. when its that cold all you see is a light sheen of frost on the walls behind the cushions. I sleep on a full size thermorest on top of the seating cushions. Ive never had condensation below the cushions. They are over the storage areas which are much warmer then the exterior walls.

First job in the morning every day is to lean the cushions away from the walls and crank up the AC with the heater strip.. the powerful fan in the AC unit pushes a lot of warm air to the far reaches of the trailer. In less then an hour it melts any frozen moisture on the walls behind the cushions which evaporates almost instantly with the low relative humidity in cold weather.

I resist cooking in the trailer as much as possible.. heat water for coffee on the campstove outdoors and use the BBQ extensively.

Movement of air is most important in eliminating condensation, open your blinds....
