When you drive across the bridge onto Porpoise Island take first left then next right, take that road to the end then left and left again, unit will be on the right. The driveway is at an angle, so coming in the shorter way (without all these turns) makes pulling in to the driveway difficult, the street is very narrow.

BATH HOUSE - The bath house is located in the middle of Porpoise Island. (see #4 on map) Using the bath house is highly recommended! (male and female) A very short walk - just cross the street and follow the foot path (you will cross the 'inner circle' (road) to get there). The bath house is well maintained and comfortable.

ID TAGS - You must have ID tags to use the recreation center and beach pool. PLEASE DON'T LOSE THEM!

AWNINGS - Open / close as need. Unscrew wing nuts and release awning. Screw wing nut back onto screw to keep safe. There are aluminum pegs in a plastic box in cabinet at the end of kitchen counter. These are used to secure awnings in an open position.

WATER - Find the water valve for the unit on the North Side (left side when looking from the street). The small main valve is on lower section, the outdoor hose spicket is above. Turn the small main valve to have water in the unit (horizontal to the ground is "off").

ELECTRIC-main breakers are outside on the right side, rear of the trailer. More electric breakers are inside, in the bedroom closet.
