I realize when asking a simple question on line in forums you are going to get mmore than you asked for.

So, I am going to tell a story of another recent question I asked to my FB friends and family.

I want to pave next to my garage, and extend it off my current driveway. So I was looking for recommendations on any experienced pavers that they would recommend. I think I had about 30 replies and I might have actually gotten 2 that addressed my question. People seem to have a really hard time staying on topic when sitting at their computer/phone/tablet, etc...

But anyway, Thanks for the answers I will relax a little tonight and look forward to finally camping without RAIN!!!!!

I always run my Norcold Refrigerator and hot water heater when traveling. They are made to do that.

Parking on the median and sidewalk, and backwards? That's would get it towed away in my neck of the woods, and a huge citation!

WTH? Is that how to park there?

After all your initial question was awfully vague, so as per your request to keep responses on topic to your question the simple answer is, No!

I think I would just park it on the street facing the correct direction. It would attract less attention than the way you have it.

The OP asked if his parking job was ok. He didn't say ok in relation to what - safety, equipment use, legal, or anything else. He got responses that provided input to all of those. Then he came back and said most didn't answer the question which was so vague folks didn't know what he meant. I wonder who was the one providing poor information?

Well, after re-reading my original post and viewing my photos I guess I could have been a little more specific. I was ONLY concerned with my brand new TT and if it would be ok leaning the way it was. I did receive a few good answers that allowed me to relax and leave it for the time being. And I also was glad to get confirmation to not run the fridge like that. So thanks for all the replies.

Now I am about to go hook it up and head to the campground for the weekend. Hope you all have a great weekend as well!

Jim

Jimmerz, you are just the person I want to talk to. I just stumbled across your post and the pic's of your new Sunset Trail. Beautiful TT. How do you like it so far? My wife and I are going in the morning to see and walk through a Sunset Trail Super Lite. We are looking at the model just below yours, the ST 240BH. I have not seen one up close, but as far as I've seen they are nice looking and as far as pic's go, they seem to have a lot of quality built into these RV's. I still have some questions though. The salesman I talked to on the phone this morning gave me a real wishy washy answer concerning the roof. The salesman stated that the units did have a walk on roof. I asked if you could have a roof ladder installed. The answer came back that if a unit did not come from the factory with a ladder that they could not do an installation. I then asked if you could order one from the factory with a roof ladder. Answer came back he didn't think so. .......What? I then asked if the rear bumper should be able to support a bicycle rack. Answer came back......It SHOULD be able to. I was sure to ask this salesman his name because I want to be sure and talk with someone else on this TT. I don't want answers that they think will make a sale. I want either yes or no answers. Know what I mean? Anyway, getting back to your new Sunset Trail, I wish you many happy hours with it. Wish us luck tomorrow. I may need it if I come across Barry....(Salesman's name).

Lol RVGuy!!!!

RoadyRose, I love it so far. We are on our 3rd trip right now. We've encountered a few minor problems but nothing too bad. As for the ladder and bumper, we don't have a ladder so I will use one not attached. The bumper is rated for 100#'s. On my unit. I do not plan on using the bumper for anything. The quality inside is very nice, furniture is comfortable and the mattress in the bedroom is very comfy. Hope that helps.

Thanks, and enjoy your new TT. Does your unit have the skylight in the kitchen, and if so how do you like it? Thanks for your help.
