As your neighbor to one side or the other, not sure which would bother me more. Your engine running, or listening to an air compressor run, especially one of the commonly used diaphram types? Those are incredibly noisey!

I still carry one. Some days you gotta do what you gotta do....

Rincon Country West in Tucson:

Has air available.

Has a robust, enforced pet policy.

A bikini sun bather a few years ago got a lot of men to increase the range of their evening walk, very healthy; (after several offers it turns out she washes her own bikini).

I don't go there any more it's too crowded and my wife heard me make the offers.





OK, I'm kidding about the offers everything else is true.

Good unit. Only had to use it once because of a defective valve core. It takes a little bit of time, but it worked just fine on the 22.5 in tires I had at the time.

I've always thought campgrounds are missing out on a great business opportunity by not allowing RV washing. It seems to me that for a minimal investment, a campground owner could install a pressure washer system in a location away from the campsites ( or even just a hose) and charge a reasonable amount ( or have a coin operated version) so people could wash their rigs. How many times have you pulled into your destination campground looking like a bug-splattered, road-grimed mess, only to find there was no place to wash your RV?
If I owned a campground that's one amenity I would definitely offer.

Every campground should have at least one person that actually knows what size RV's will fit on each and every spot in the park. My most recent trip I was placed on a "pull thru" site that had a fence about 15 feet from the outlet of the site. I could not get the very nice, very young lady at the counter to understand that this was not a pull thru site for my 43 foot 5th wheel.

Rincon Country WEST is very nice. There are two, west and east, I have stayed at west many times. The best spots are what they call a quad in the very rear of the park. They park RV's in a square on these sites with a large lawn in the middle. It is a great layout. Of course you will have to decide if the price is to your suiting.

Lots to do in this park, all the facilities are well maintained.

are they two totally different entities, or is the one just split into two sides. not that it matters to me what is the price. if its that nice and can support the cost it would be well worth it.

I installed a 3/4 HP ,7 1/2 gallon air compresser and tied it in to the air system of the MH .
If you ever lose the main engine compresser, you can get off the road for repair. Use one of the a/c unit circuits....
