Now we live more "West Central" AB, so Whistlers in Jasper fills the bill.



Full hookups here! Amazing campsite.

Lenny, there should be door bolts on the bottom of all your sliding doors - unless they changed that (which I doubt) - it's the only way to securely hold the doors in place.
The Trilogy should have come with a remote for the awnings, slide outs, outside lights and landing gear, the dealer probably messed up.
"Hall door obviously must be latched open or there will be a loud crunch when the slide goes in lol"
I'll give you that, you'd be the only one not laughing.

Interesting, we live about 5 min. from Med. Hat and are trying to sell our house and find a nice acreage somewhere in the Rocky Mtn. House area. We are getting tired of the heat in summer and want to retire where there is some green.
Here are a couple pics. from our last trip to Elkwater 2 days after labour day long weekend last year - best time to go there hands down.

Edit: We've never been to Whistlers - have to check it out, it gets excellent reviews.

Looks too cold for me. I would much rather chase the 80's.

Fall camping in Elkwater was always great! So quiet and peaceful, almost have the place to yourself! Loved the turkeys strolling around, gobble gobble!

Upon closer inspection, I now see the latches on the closet doors to hold them open. I will remout the hangers and try this again. Later this afternoon I am going to poke around a bit and look for a bad ground or something, see if I can't get the lights going.

Yeah - but imagine you have the whole cg. for yourself, snow falling for 3 days straight, everything is still green, fireplace on, glass of red wine - HAVEN.

Another quick question: I want to plug an HDMI cable into the bedroom TV. How do I get it off the wall? I've looked in the cabinets on both sides and can not find a way to access the back of the TV?

You probably have all LED's and they are very voltage sensitive. You could replace the fuse (fuses) in question, they sometimes test ok even if they aren't. Check the voltage at both sides of the fuse and then down the line at the lights, this can be very difficult to pin point. It could also be a light bulb not making proper contact with the socket. My guess is you have to take it back to the dealership.

When you look under the TV cabinet you see a 1/4 plywood panel held in place with philips head screws, when you remove this panel you'll have access to the back of the TV.

Unfortunately the underside of my cabinet is stapled on.
