    Bob and Beverly:
    The opportunities I see outside public parks seem to expect a longer stay than 3 months and expect you to work full time or nearly full time. How do you travel under these conditions? Been park hosting a couple of years and looking into workamping.

      Thistle Dew Most private parks will require more working hours and longer commitment. Beware of the pay vs trade offers. The pay plus site must add up to at least that State Minimum wage. We work on average up to a 6 month commitment. We try to leave at least a month...  more

      LaurieJo I've seen lots of parks offering 18-24 hrs each person for FHU but, yes, 5-6 months. We just picked places we really want to see or live in.

      Mike Hendrix We have good friends that have worked in the Tetons for over 10-years.  They were both retired teachers.  The contractor (that operates virtually everything in the Tetons) hired them, gives them pay for the work they do then provides them with a...  more Hide 1 Reply

        tish We find that it just takes longer to find what we are looking for but so far we have worked no more than 4 days a week.  Summer we like memorial day to labor day.  I keep applying through workkamper.com and when I talk to people I let them know ...  more

      SACnFrau We were very lucky to find for our first workamping gig a very flexible private campground that only required 20hrs/wk in exchange for 50A fullhookup site. Our stay was 3.5 months, but dates of arrival & departure were up to us. We have committed to ret...  more

      Sweetie and Rick I don't want to be tied down so many hours that it's like working a fulltime job again. I would like a 3 to 4 month job that's offering FHU and not working fulltime hours.

      tomgauger Got an AquaHot burning Diesel? Fuel level in the tank must be above the 1/4 mark. Also fuel filter might be dirty.

      Doug & Patty While it would help to know the furnace brand and fuel source ? and assuming someone who has a 5th Wheel for a profile pic probably doesn't have a diesel tank on board ?, the most typical cause is the "sail switch" that senses sufficient air flow before a...  more

      Thistle Dew I would try the air in the line theory. Lite the stove top for a while. It will warm up the coach and help clear the lines.

      joe and Helen have you check the actual furnance to be sure that no spider or mud gobber has set up a nest that would stop the propane from flowing.

    For me this group is for information both good and bad. OK, my 2cents, I workamped at Teaberryhill RV campground 4 years (mid-April thru Oct 31). My duties were everything that needed to be done including running the place while owners away (usually a wee...  more

      John & Linda Eibeck I suspect that they quickly learned just what a valuable asset they had in you, especially for a FHU only.
