The wind was so strong hitting the side of my TT that I noticed that the bottom plate on my tongue jack was showing signs of some movement on the block of wood.
Went and purchased some scissor chocks, put them on, and a couple of hours later there was still movement at the tongue jack
Anyway, long story short, the CG manager gave us another interior site that made a world of difference. There were three of us (two-TT's, one FW) that moved.
I won't even get into the fine sand
WOW.......that sounded hairy!!! Being from AZ and knowing the winds in the Spring, I try to find a campsite that one of the ends of the TT will face the headwind as opposed to a crosswind.
No fun sitting at the campsite with fine sand covering your beer can!!
