Sorry to hear about your sore noggin. Been there a few times, only drew blood once.

Just passed through Bangor last week on our way more north. Beautiful weather, great chowdah. The Weathervane has a Thurs. special: Twin one pounders with the full dinner plate for $14.95. Yum!

Assuming you have a Creek, Lippert does not recommend lubricating the slide, just cleaning. Hope this saves you one head banging.

Well I know it hurts because I have done it a few times. As my Momma always told me. "At least you hit something hard"!

Hopefully no damage to slides, hitch etc. Sorry about that, we've all been there and done that.

Yes have Creek, 36RE and was told the same thing what I should have said was checking them to insure they where clear of any thing. I do spray a little lithem on them about once year just to insure everything is ok. Never had a problem with my slides in fact very few problems with creek except the power inverter went out got it replaced. We eat at the WeatherVane some, we go all the way up most of the time, my wife is from Fort Kent area a place called Wallagrass and we stay in South Thomasville alot at Lobster Buey Campground, right on the water great little campground
