We were at a motorcycle Rally in Kty last month and one of the members told us. He was talking to his wife about buying a 39r12 as they were pulling into the rally. He said that they would not be able to bring their camper here if they bought it. He said he could not get it in here. Well they turned the corner and saw our camper. She said well why can't you look over there and there was our camper. I admit it was a tight fit on some of the corners but it went any where I wanted to go. Nice to have everything when you get where you are going.

Just got back from a two week trip to Gettysburg and Cleveland. Since picking up our 39R12 in April, we have camped 45 nights, towed 6400 miles, carried our two Harley trikes and three dogs with us the whole way, rode the trikes 2000+ miles, and had a blast the whole time! To say we love this thing would be an understatement. Yes it's big, and yes you have to be careful maneuvering thru some of these campsites! but, knock on wood, no scrapes or bruises on it yet. Having a long bed dually diesel truck certainly helps, we were able to average 10+ MPG, and no troubles. Still waiting on a garage side door, and we'll have to do something about the battery box. (I'm going to add a second battery too) the dealer has been great. Just gotta widen my driveway........
One more two week trip planned for October to Quincy, il for the fall colors, and that will be it for the year, maybe....

We stayed at Bandy Creek we loved it.. We came in from Jamestown, on 127, not from Oneida.

Ultraboy we extended out driveway tile from 10 foot to 20 feet shortly after buying the fifth wheel makes it a lot easier getting in and out. The Co put it in all we had to do was buy the tile.

Porky, My front yard has a ditch, so we will have to add some pipe to widen the driveway, and fill, which will most likely be gravel for now. The county won't do it. As it is now, I have made the mailbox removable, so I can start the swing in without going in the ditch. It's do-able, but usually takes two tries, lol. The driveway is long enough, and wide enough at the garage end, but not near wide enough as you come off the street, which is also narrow.

Camping for 3 weeks over in Quincy Illinois, on what will most likely be our last trip this year. Pulled in, set up, and discovered the GFCI outlet in the bathroom is not working, and will not 'test' or reset. So, no elect. Hot water heater (propane works) no microwave, no power to the two outlets on either side of stove. So, tomorrow I'll be doing some shopping, along with getting the propane re- filled.
Just before we left, the dealer called, and after waiting since July, our replacement side garage door is in!

Can't be 100% sure, but we had an issue like that on our first trip. I'm talking to my wife trying to remember the issue. i believe the bathroom outlet stopped working and we tracked it down to the outside outlet. We had drop cord plugged into to charge our golf cart and it setting in a puddle due to rain and tripped the cgi circuits. I tracked down to the outlet on our island that needed to be reset, then everything started working again. Hope it may this may help.

This one is physically broken. Test button does not push in. All of the other gfci outlets test and reset properly. It's dark and cold out there now, tomorrow is another day!

Got a new gfci outlet at Menards, installed, and all is well. The old one has a crack all the way around.
