Full hookups

Full hookups

Mary D is at it again … her second camping trip, that is! And this time we went all out and got full hookups. Since our last trip, Kevin fixed the small water leak. It turns out it was just a connection where the water comes in for the toilet. Kevin had disconnected it to…
