Cooking with LP Gas
Your Scamp trailer has either a 2 or 3 burner stove and some of our models even have an oven. For the oven to work, you must light to pilot light.
Choosing a Camping Spot
Make sure you have a level spot and are able to get to all access panels of your Scamp. Always carry several 2 by 6 pieces of wood, about 12 inches long to place under the jack feet of your trailer. Look for shade if desired and watch out for areas where water can pool.
For safe winter storage, drain all water lines, add trailer anti freeze, remove battery, close all windows, doors and vents, close all gas lines.
