No water softener which discharges into the Resort’s sewer system is permitted.

To ensure acceptable loads to the Resort’s sewer system, Camper’s application for approval for these appliances may be denied.
- Air Conditioners. Because the capacity of the Resort’s electrical system can be adversely affected, no additional air conditioners may be installed at the Resort without prior approval of Resort Management. Evaporative (swamp) coolers are not permitted on RVs.

- Camper shall be solely responsible for the maintenance and repair, including any and all associated costs, of any installed Reception Device and shall not allow any such Reception Device to fall into disrepair or to become a safety hazard.
