Livin Lite General Discussion / Livin Lite Forum
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:16:58 PM »
For those who may at times go to the Livin Lite forum, it was recently revealed by someone that Dan Miller, who was the site admin, is no longer with the company.  Someone spoke with a person at Livin Lite who confirmed that Dan is gone, and nobody from Livin Lite is monitoring the web site; only the Facebook page.  What a wasted effort.

Camplite and Bearcat Travel Trailers / Some important items
« on: December 21, 2016, 11:57:06 AM »
I wanted to start a topic where we could post some important topics carried over from the other site.

Paul, if you have an issue, please feel free to delete.

Just returned from a quick weekend trip to Fort Wilderness.  Had a great time, and the new A/C worked great.  The newer Penguin 2 A/Cs are MUCH quieter and even in 98 degree temperature and exposure to sun, was easily able to keep the camper 72 degrees inside. 

We stay at Fort Wilderness a lot, one reason is my wife's discount for working there, but the other big reason is the atmosphere.

We were sitting on the porch at Trails End restaurant having some iced tea, and a banjo player from Hoop De Doo Revue came over, sat down with us and started to play.  You just can't beat that.  Here's a video:

For those of you that have the Dometic Penguin 2 13.5K A/C in their camper; how many fan speeds do you have?  I have always had 1 with a/c and one without.  The other positions never worked.  I assumed that is just how it is.  I just spoke with my RV dealer and the tech said that he has to order a new rotary switch because I am only getting the one fan speed.  He can't even order the switch from Dometic until after July 13th.  So I'm picking up the trailer with working A/C operating as it always did. When the switch comes in, I'll bring it back and wait while the switch is replaced. I always assumed that was how it was supposed to work.  Does anybody else have multiple fan speeds?

Thanks,

Doug

Trip Report/Photos / Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring, FL
« on: June 24, 2015, 07:17:14 AM »
We spent 2 nights at the campground in Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring, FL.  If our A/C hadn't failed, the trip would have been perfect; but as it was we still had a great time, although we did sweat a lot.

The campground is very nice, but a bit tight.  We had a decent size site, but some are very small and difficult to back in.  We reserved site 120, which is one of the pull through sites.  I would definitely recommend one in that area.

Here is the campground:





There is a nice museum for the Civilian Conservation Corps which built the park during the depression.  The museum was really interesting and the area around the building was very nice:







The trails were not very long, but they were very unique and beautiful.  We walked the loop road, about 3 miles, and took all of the trails off of that road.









The park is a very nice park and well worth a couple of days.  At only $23 a night (over 62 Florida residents $11.50) it is a great value as are the other Florida State Parks.  A person camping near us told us that once you get past mid June, the mosquitoes get awful for the rest of the summer; so plan accordingly.  He said Spring and winter are great times to come.  I would highly recommend this park.
