Bob, there wasn't any wind driving up there. Fri nite it was blowing a little. Jayco G2 was a champ thru it.

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

Bob
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!!

I thought 20-25mph winds were strong. I guess you don't get to use your awning very much there.

In the Spring we get some winds. But in the summer we use the awning alot.
Definitely draw it up if we go on the lake or away from the campsite.
