    • My steering gearbox has developed quite a leak that appears to be around the input shaft that I need to get fixed. I'm currently just south of Deadwood, SD for the next week and it looks like Rapid City has quite a few shops and there is one shop Bickle's truck and Diesel services north of me in Belle Fouche.  Anyone have any recommendations on any of the shops in Rapid Cidy? On the FB Group I had Eddie's truck repair and the Boss Shop at the Pilot recommended. 
    • Yes, the membership bounce, spent several winters doing that while we exploded Arizona to find our ‘Winter’ home.  
    • I got up and watched a few rigs pull out this morning.  Several of us are sticking around for at least one more night.  I hope everyone has safe travels leaving the rally.
    • Thanks!!  it starting to makes sense now.  Just need to find a park that will give me a cheap START UP cost to affiliate with them as a home park starting, with no annual fees for the home park after that.  Saw one park on EBAY that will do that for $750 start up and get into C2C, which I guess is a gateway to all the others, with annual fees associated with each.  Will need to email them and ask more.  Looks like it is a valid strategy to bounce between TT-Encore parks and the C2C/AOR/affiliate parks in a three week cycle.  All assuming you can get reservations, and make reservations three to six months out.  It seems that's a true gaming process.  Make reservations for Florida State Parks a year in advance; then reservations at C2C/AOR ; then reservations at TT/Encore parks.    
    • AOR/ROD/C2C/RPI are all affiliated park membership..   Most times the "cost" to join is in your initial purchase of your HOME park membership.  Once you have your home park, then they will submit you as a new member and you will pay your annual dues directly to which ever group you have.   C2C is $100 yr (less if you pay for multiple years - pay 3, 4th is free).   ROD/AOR was a package when purchased our initial home park system  and is $189/yr.     Only TT has a number of free nights with its dues (actually they have you prepay those nights).  C2C is always $10/night, AOR is $9/night,  ROD is $0/night. We have never had a problem with the 14 day limit - - but that is why we have multiple memberships.  When you can't get in under one, you probably can under a different program.  We are spending the whole summer in the PNW - between TT and the different other memberships (mostly ROD)  it will probably be $300 or less for the whole summer for us.
