RV Spot questions
Just got a 39' 5th wheel and would like to try and come in for the Florida game.

Right now it looks like Lot 412 is available but it's not anywhere near where some of my other friends/family setup so I'm still trying to track down something in TD Village before I commit to anything.

For those that have setup in both lots, is 412 still a good place to hang out? I've never spent any time down that way... Or is it worth it to hold out for something in TD Village?

I read another post where someone mentioned topping off with water and dumping @ Loves in Port Allen (I'm coming in from Houston) but if there's a better plan, I'm open for suggestions.

As far as the size of the spots, is it reasonable to try and get that size trailer in there? I can't find any info about the length/width of the available spots and what the maneuverability is like... Am I setting myself up for heartburn?

It sounds like you need to park outside of the lot so I'm up to speed on that but if there are any tips there, I'm all ears.

Still need to figure out my generator exhaust so any tips there are also appreciated.

Thanks!

re: RV Spot questions
I will be renting an RV and have a reservation for lot 412 for the UF game. I used this to create my own exhaust extension, only cost about $20. Figured it was the way to go since I'll probably only be using it once. If I owned an RV, I'd probably purchase one of the Gen-Turi exhaust extenstions, they can be bought at most RV places or order online.

Here are the parts I purchased:
Set screw coupling
1 1/2" 90 degree elbow - electrical conduit
10' alunimum gutter downspout
small suction cup

Lot 412 is where it's at. More of a free for all. TD village are designated spots with more veteran tailgaters.

412 best place easpically if you are new to tailgating. No pressure getting in or out

re: RV Spot questions
Thanks for the link. Seems simple enough although I may just spring for the Gen-Turi. The trick for me is going to be to get it plumbed from the portable generator (Harbor Freight Predator 3500.) Gotta figure out that fitting arrangement...

Also still deciding if it's worth it to bring a 2nd generator to get a full 50 amps. Hopefully the weather is cool enough that I won't need both ACs...

re: RV Spot questions
What's the deal if it rains? Looks like a grass lot. Does it turn into a mud pit? Any issue with heavier trucks/RVs?

I'm pretty much down for whatever but wifey is pretty particular so just trying to avoid the conflict ahead of time!

re: RV Spot questions
It’s an all gravel lot. I have been there once when it was wet and other than puddles in low spots it wasn’t muddy. You will get chalky white dust on everything if it is super dry.
A majority of the tailgaters are in the lot all day so there is a good atmosphere. I fill up at loves coming in from houston and dump on the way out. There is also a free lot next door for other folks who come to tailgate to park.

I need to find a solution for my Honda generators to vent

Thanks. Gravel sounds doable...

Gonna try and get the better half on board tonight so I can just get it locked in...

Regarding the exhaust, I'm thinking something like this would clamp to the existing muffler and I could route it to a Gen-Turi or similar strapped to the ladder...

re: RV Spot questions
Log 412 is no to strict and has plenty of room. Make your exhaust look like it's working. As long as it's a quiet generator and your not blowing fumes into someone's tailgate you'll be fine

what ever you do do not bring a 5,000 watt generator you got for the house to the RV Lott. It should be a quiet generator. Harbor freight sales a nice one for about 600 bucks.

Don't ruim someone's tailgate with a loud generator. They complain and security will tell you to cut it off

It’s an inverter generator. Just as quiet as my Honda eu2000...

re: RV Spot questions
Ok, wife is in...

Last question I hope!

Should i have them mail the pass or do will call?

I read another post where someone indicated they don’t mail the pass until the week of the game. If that’s the case, I don’t trust my mail delivery enough to risk it. I have relatives that can pick up from will call but it would be a pain to try and meet them with the trailer in tow...

Any input on this?

re: RV Spot questions
I have had it mailed and it usually comes a few weeks before the game. I didn’t want to mess with will call. I wasn’t sure what time it was open and when I would get there

10-4. A few weeks out is fine. Week of (as the other post suggested) is cutting it too close...
