Girl Camper #73: Getting Ready for the Camping Season Part 2

On this week’s show I’m talking about prepping the outside of your trailer for the coming season. From tires to outside storage solutions to maintaining your vinyl awning, there are things to be done before you hit the road in 2017.

Cleaning the winters dirt off your trailer is a simple process. We first washed the trailer down with Dawn detergent and rinsed with clean water.

The resistant black RV streaks came off with Goof Off and a soft rag. We then washed the trailer again to remove any Good Off residue and dried it with micro fiber towels.

Getting the outside storage bin organized was a pleasure. It feels great to know these things are not rolling around loosely in the space where they could cause damage to the exposed mechanics of the hot water heater.

I’m also talking about my great fishing trip with guide Kai on the oyster beds of Hilton Head. We had a great day even without catching any fish! I learned so much about this regions natural habitats and the value of an experienced and knowledgeable guide.

Our guide Kai took us out on a flat boat and used the Captain’s perch to spot fish.

The fish weren’t biting but I had a great day trying!

The oyster beds are natures filters. An adult oyster filters 50 gallons of water a day.
