(Our Canadian friends called this a Pin)

Just a heads up for first timers to the gathering: the RV Pit Stop in Quartzsite has pumps for filling your fresh water tank conveniently and at a reasonable price. I drove through the Banning Pass with high winds and full tanks and it wasn't fun! RV Pit Stop also has propane, ice and dump stations. Don't miss the Quartzsite gathering!
