Years ago, BC (before camper) we stayed there in one of the rooms. We didn't even look at the campground. Give us a report if you will on the place.
Thanks and have a GREAT time!!!

Don't confuse them with the separate bigger bundle of wire tails that go through the firewall to the engine compartment.
There's 4 wires, one for each switch. I used the lowest rated one which is switch #3 and is a green/violet striped wire.

I can try to take photos tomorrow
I would appreciate that.

Dewinterized (again), filled the water tank, air up tires, checked lug nuts and loaded up some dry goods. Heading out to Pere Marquette SP this weekend.

What crap they have put on our trailers.

I am concerned because I have those China Bombs, so far they are ok at 2,000 miles but keep pressure at 50psi the Westlake versions

8000 on my Westlakes. Longest being to Disney and back, 2000 miles. They lost no pressure through the whole winter.. I was shocked still at 50 psi.

Have an uncle that lives across the street from the entrance. I remember going here years ago and riding the tram down the mountain, and also going up the observatory deck. Need to get back up there sometime.

Lubed the gear assy on the awning motor but still have a spot that is binding up. Installed awning tie down brackets. Replaced flame diffuser on bumper mounted grill.

I would appreciate that.
I took a couple of photos, but the ones under the dash were taken blind (couldn't keep door open to get in a good position for photos since it's been raining all afternoon), so if you need a clearer photo of where the wires are then I can take one whenever it's not raining

TPMS Monitor mounting location (phone wanted to focus on the outside world ... can't blame it)


I fed the wire (including the inline fuse) down the gap shown and fished the wires out under the dash.


Trying to show Upfitter switch wiring location
You can see where the wire tails are taped, the green and yellow ones are visible.
I freed the green/violet one to give a little more flex, but they're still very short and awkward to reach.


Again, but also showing where I connected the ground wire
I used a velcro strap to secure the excess wire from the TPMS Monitor, and ran the ground wire over the top of the brake release cable to stop it dropping down
