Carey965, tell me more about the dryer sheets. Where do you put them? Do you lay them out in random open areas, or do you try to stick them inside cabinets, storage spaces, etc?

just everywhere, in cabinets on beds, in the shower, under the dinette, in the outside storage areas anywhere you can think of

i just buy the cheap ones and a box does the trailer and the boat, i dont know what it is they dont like but it works, did it with my cars when i would store them in the winter and never had any issues with rodents

Ours sits on the gravel pad beside our driveway which extends to the side of my garage. I cover it during the winter including the tires. I have to use portable power mover to move it back there due to a big city owned tree that stops me from backing it in there with my truck. The tires sit on stone pavers three concrete 12"x12" for each side for a flat surface to sit on. During the months of May 15-Sept 15 it can sit in beside my driveway.

Next to the garage on the grass or what was grass. Going to put it on a concert slab this summer open for suggestions on how wide but I think ill make it 14 ft wide at least. No cover, I do have mixed feelings on to cover or not. I will eventually make a tire cover for the one side. I leave it plugged in all camping season long with the fridge on. This coming up winter I'll put blocks under the axles.

We keep our 338 rlts behind where my wife works (big warehouse). I hooked up the 50 amp shore power to twin 20 amp extension cords which are on the same phase but different outlets giving me 40 amps using a 50 to 30 then a 30 to twin 20 amp adapters so I can run just about everything. There is a sewer clean out for the building about 50' away. I bought hoses to run to it and have the ability to dump when needed. I put the unit on four jack stands and leveled it so it is rock steady and the tires have most of the pressure off them. I do this when I camp as well. Jack stands remove any bounce or movement and is way cheaper than other solutions and just as fast. The first set of jack stands is just in front of the tandems with the other at the very front of the frame. I use a bottle jack to level at the tandems and the electric tongue jack at the front to jack up then set down on the jack stands in the front. Very fast no worries. I run down the electric stabilizer jacks as well for added stability. My camper does NOT move at all! I also use xchocks between the tires for safety just it case it comes off the jack stands in heavy winds which has never happened. I don't want it to go anywhere as it weighs about 11,000 lbs. Peace of mind is worth a lot. As far as I can tell it hasn't moved at all even during 70+ mph winds. I leave all three slides out and use the camper whenever I want as it is fully set up and ready to use. The slides block the sun from the tires so I don't use tire covers.

Please share about your TT storage/home setup

[QUOTE=norty1;187724]We have a 18'x 36' and a 12' x 20' in the back yard for camper and tv.

Just realized I didn't have a current pics. We have our sheds on concrete with water and 30a. When we bought the new rig, I had to raise the roof about a ft to clear the additional height.

Sorry guys. No TT here. Just a 5'er. This was the home for our previous Lance Travel Trailer.

Nonetheless, the space works perfectly well for our new 5'er.

Beautiful 5er PKEagle. I really like your PVC gate too. it looks like it blocks the view from the front well. The painted lines look helpful getting lined up on the concrete.

I have had some gravel hauled in on the side of my house and put 30 amp service. I run water when I need it and we have out own septic so I can dump any time as well.
