    the reason they are "full" is that they have a hundred or so of their own rental units in there. Most summers the German and UK tourists rent them soldily. They are all hail damaged now too. That storm on June 13th hit that area hard. Lucky I was away that weekend. The lesson is to camp lots!
    Ahhh- that makes a lot of sense. Yeah I saw a few golf ball’d rigs. I dropped off the night of the tornado warning, thankfully the lot was unscathed.

    The rental units are all fibreglass sides, so that isn't normally damaged, but the skylights and vent caps were destroyed. I was on the roof of mine there and it was a war zone of red tuck tape up there.

    And dryer sheets and the dollar store dehumidifier things. $20 at the dollar store well spent.

    I used an entire box of Costco sized dryer sheets last winter, and not one mouse or turd to be found. The trailer smelled so fresh the first use too.

    Soap and dryer sheets are the biggest myths when it comes to mice, but it keeps getting spread around for some reason. Make sure you don't have holes for them to crawl in, don't have a dump of a trailer and you'll be good.

    I have scientifically proven that dryer sheets work from my single mouse free winter.

    No tank swap offered (or perhaps just no recert 30lb'ers available) at the Fill n Go but it was painless to drop off my expired tank and should be much cheaper than a brand new 30lb tank.

    chill guys there.

    Yeah they don't always have 30 lb tanks around. Usually only a couple, and if someone buys em in the morning. They can run out. Small shop, chill guys.

    I've been at Stowaway since last October. Nothing but good things to be said.

    Great write up about them. Only thing missing is potable water fill up is free. They also sell firewood, but its pricey.
