If you have not left for Elkhart and International, be prepared for doubling up on the assigned sites. You may need extension cords, extension water hoses and longer TV cables to plug into the available support sites. Also, pig tail conversion plugs from 50 amp to 30 amp may be needed. If you have already left, prepare for coach juggling as you fit into the assigned sites. I expect the surplus stores can provide additional cords, hoses and TV cabling for purchase.

Thomas,

Thanks for the warning.

I did see Kim's note and loaded the extension cable. We also carry 50' of potable quality hose, but the sewer extension might be a trick.
I was wondering why and if Kim's note was real because this is supposed to be an FHU camp ground. (From Google Earth, it looks like a lot of it would qualify as crampground.)

See you tomorrow.

Matthew

Does anyone have a current listing of the RV surplus/overstock stores
in the Elkhart area? I haven't been in the area lately to visit any
of the stores.

They say there are no stupid questions...

Though, mostly, I do. But not Motorhome stuff, yet.

Johnson's and Bontraguars (sp) are in White Pigeon, short drive. I expect cars to be going daily. RV Surplus in Elkhart is a short drive from campground. I am sure there are others, but these are known operations.

If it makes any difference at all, today I picked up a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter plug at wally world for 16 bucks. Pretty sure its a Camco brand.

...loading up the coach for a few hour trip tomorrow.
