Things don’t go the way you plan. On our trip from Gulfport, MS to Sanibel, FL. Our steps broke. The outlet for the refrigerator and 4 outlets stop working. But we are less than 100 miles from our destination.

Our temporary stairs

We pulled into our premium pull through site and The Fun n Sun Campground in Sarasota, FL. and started our routine.
First thing is finding where I put my keys after hooking up, after checking my pocket and purse for keys – We unlock trailer storage doors – Stick 6 buckets on jacks – Insert chalk blocks – Drop tailgate – Deploy landing jacks – Unhitch the truck – Unplug the trailer – Slowly pull the truck away – Put up the tailgate – Deploy the remaining jacks – Level the trailer – Get the power cable and plug in…


The power cable was 6 inches to short. Good thing we have over 5 years of experience setting up the trailer as we reverse the whole process just to re-hook up the trailer to go 6 inches.

I guess we need to re-think the order of our routine.

We stayed 2 nights at the Fun N Sun Resort in Sarasota, FL  We Ave paid a lot for campsites, but this was the most expensive at $91.00 a night.  They had a large pool complex, bar, and grill.  A number of activities were still closed because of Covid restrictions.
