New member here. We just signed up for the FMCA South Central Area Rally, in Sedalia Mo. This will be our 1st rv rally ever, so not sure what to expect. We paid $300 for four days during the rally and three days early parking. We were told that we would have full hookups, which to me means elect, water and sewer connections at our rv site. After printing the info for the rally posted by Thelma Hebert, family registrar, I read;
( ELECTRIC, WATER, LEVELING PADS....It is always advisable to arrive with full water and empty holding tanks and an electrical extension cord. All rally sites are intended to be full hookup, except those electing to dry camp ) This advise leaves open ended questions....
#1 If I will have full hookups, why do I need to carry 250# of water 500 mi and then dump it on the ground when I get there. I certainly won't carry it back home for another 500 mi. Am I to expect issues with the water connection? Does the water and sewer part of the "full hookups" consist of a water / honey truck ?
#2 If I need to bring an extra 30A extension cord other than the 25 ft that I always carry, why will I need it? I do have one, but not for linking together to reach a power source. Linking 30A cords together creates electrical issues such as over heated cords and plug failure. And how long of an extension cord will be needed.
All this makes me wonder if the full hookups are of the conventional RV park type or some cobbled together system with limitations and safety issues. I know that large convention gatherings can be a nightmare to organize and prepare for logistically. I just find the advisory info confusing.
Six days from Sedalia....
