Welcome Skipbest, and thanks for starting this thread. We are about 40 or so minutes west of you.

I think Glacier did a good job of answering your questions. As far as bikes I put the kids bikes in the back of my Envoy and unfortunately my bike goes inside the camper wedged in between the dinette and the sink cabinets. I don't always take my bike so it isn't too bad. We are looking to upgrade to a truck this spring to make bike hauling much better.

Mods: battery shut off switch, same mattress as Glacier, shelves in the front cabinets, black tank flush, oxygenics shower head.

Favorite local spot is Lake in Wood in Narvon, PA (near maple grove raceway). We start and end our camping season there every year.

Is anybody having trouble with the link in post #2, that isn't using a mobile device (ie phone, or app)?

In your M Lite travel...
Do you travel with bikes? Where do you store them? Do you use a rack?

Because of the weak bumper issue, we haul in the back of the truck. (I have concerns about tongue weight with two full propane tanks, two batteries, and two bikes and a bike rack.)
Have you made any modifications to your M Lite?

We did the antenna booster mod, and the screen door bar. Added a second battery and an AC inverter, added an outdoor smart TV, made mods to the shower, added a WIFI system and Raspberry Pie media server, and we are working on a review camera system for spring. We added a mattress topper and use regular queen sheets, and our small trash can fits in a lower cabinet.
IF you have a slide does it function alright? Slide works okay. We treat seal with silicone during winterizing.
If you camp at one place where are you located?
If you use your M Lite to travel where is your favorite spot... so far?
We prefer state parks. We enjoyed both Johnson Shutin in Missouri and St. George Island in Florida.

Sorry about that Jhocst, I was trying to be brief, ended up being unclear.

Winegard Wingman and a Winegard Sensar signal meter

Is the wingman worth it? I have seen it, but have not heard results. Does it fold down nice. Meter sounds nice for dialing in signal

Thanks

We are not in an area with a lot of reception for antenna. Any edge helps

jhochst, yes the Wingman improves your reception. It's very easy to install, just pops in. It lays down with the rest of the antenna and doesn't take up any more room. The meter makes it a lot easier to zero in where your strongest signal is coming from.

Having said that, I just purchased a Winegard Rayzar Air Retrofit antenna from Camping World. It is a flat paddle like thing and receives reception on 2 sides so from 2 directions. I'll install it first thing this spring. I am hoping for even better reception. It goes on the existing antenna mast. We'll see.
