probably in a building and or a building near by;;;
scout the area, if a storage shed near show shed
then see if has a 110v outlet, if yes then park
close to the outlet, run your extension cord from
outlet to your rig,,,,,
show folks are not gypos
and are not inhospitable,,,,
thus i doubt anyone
of the operators would mind you using their juice,
or you can ask, but if ask they can always say 'no';;
if no shed outlet, then there must be a home or
barracks or garage or show shed,,, any ought have
110v outlet [this is same as your home juice,
same outlet box, etc, so all ya gotta do is
have an extension cord, if you can not figure this
out, have your gkids hold a democratic meeting
where majority vote rules and figure out how
to get you 110v to rig, plus where the water
taps are so you can hook to that too,,,,,
they are dealing with mulitudes of dogs, they
gotta have some way of disposing of dog stuff,,
before you leave show grounds, find their sewer
or the like, park rig so your dump outlet is
where it will dump into their sewer, etc, open
valve, dump... no biggie
You bring your own power, water and hope

a backyard mechanic to do all of this for you,
if not, make her guy do it,,,,
belts bit the dust, soooo toooo perhaps your
radiator hoses are ready to be replaced.
learn how to check air pressure all tires,
then check when cold [first thing in morning],
read label on tire as to what is max cold pressure
and when cold keep at that number, no biggie;;;
similarly, before starting engine, check engine oil
and radiator fluid,,,, but, but but but, you
better off finding a good backyard mech, who
is fair and good priced, and work with him,
make him teach you what you need to know for
checkups and if breakdown on road.
The belts have all been replaced. Oil

GGGGG Exactly what I had imagined or there kennels sliding back and forth.
Great calming effect for pre show. Someone I know put that snap together plank
wood floor in and has hated it for 3 years. Every thing that is dropped,
including water, marks the floor so badly that you have to get out the cleaner
and clean right away the water spots are the worst. Ours had the lovely yellow,
orange gold and white shag replaced with a vinyl flooring (found the old stuff
under the kitchen cabinets). It works great is easy to clean, and there is a
bit of grip for Hanna in the pattern. As the cat rarely uses the floor, she is
the princess after all, its fine for her too. We did retain the white, orange
and gold bathroom vinyl though.
