I have yet to see Full Hookup stated where Ele, Water, Basic cable, sewer were included.

the new thing I am finding is wifi is not even included for a price anymore. I have been to a few this year where they took it out all together.

I am getting the 99 dollar directv satellite dish with temporary monthly service.

using that I can activate for whatever month I want and deactivate at will and ues the built in bat wings for local channels.

my iphone service is with att so I can use my phone for a mifi.

works great....

We stay frequently where FHU include everything mentioned (and free wifi) that actually works. Parks differ in their offerings obviously but we've stayed in numerous ones that have all these features as we travel from Ca. to Az. every year.

I concurr with puttin. It's rare that a full hookup does not include water, electric, sewer, cable. Most CG that includes wi fi good or bad. Yes there are several that charge for Internet service but our hot spot handles that. FWIW we have much better coverage nationwide with Verizon than we had using ATT. Big difference IMO.

Of all the campground we have stayed at in our 3 years of Rv'n we have only stayed at one park that had full hookup, but, then again, we stay mostly at state or ACOE parks. Wife and i can go at least 3-4 days and not and not worry about dumping, and that's grey water.

Other "stuff" in black tank

Have been reading about the "GEO" method for taking care of the black tank. Seems that use of water softener and detergent will keep the walls and floor "slick" in the black tank, thus preventing any kind of build up. Softener choice seems to be Calgon (which is hard to find AND expensive), with a backup product being borax. Any experiences on this? Call me cheap or thrifty, but is there any other substitutes for the softener? Research on Google shows that one can "formulate" a water softener using hair conditioner....again, think this would cause a problem in the tank? Normally conditioner might be as expensive (or maybe moreso), but I have four bottles from my mom who did not like the stuff she purchased (and dollar store stuff might be cheap, as well, if it works).....

I use the cheapest water softener I can find. I use some stuff I find at Winco, it is a powder that I dissolve in hot water before dumping down the toilet. Look at the dollar store, Target, WallyMart, etc for cheap softener

We've been using detergent for more than a year and it seems to be good. Only occasionally do we put in Calgon. Don't know of a sub sorry.
