    Pigeon Forge

    I called the campground. There maintenance man didn't recommend taking a camper down 339. He suggested 411 to seiverville and south from there. As usual you guys are a wealth of knowledge. Thanks as always.

    I'm coming from Florida, I95 to I26 to I40. so That would add a substantial amount of mileage. Is it worth it? Also 339 seems to bring me in off the main drag.

    Pigeon Forge

    I'm assuming hwy 339 from I 40 to pigeon forge is plenty safe enough for a truck conversion. But I figured i would ask? Any body driven it in the winter? We are heading up Christmas day.

    Pigeon forge after christmas

    As the title says. We are looking to head to the Pigeon forge area the week after Christmas. Do any of you folks have any experience with the weather patterns in the area? Also can we expect most places to be open? Obviously we don't want to go rafting or swimming. But we would like a break from the Florida heat. We are looking at the KOA in town. Any worries about a 65 ft rig? All they seem to have are back in sites. Is there enough room? Thanks as always, Steve On a side note. even though all of my fresh water plumbing and tank is inside the coach, the waste tanks are not. Is there a decent antifreeze I can pour down the drain to keep the tanks from freezing?

    the only thing I've ever managed to get solder to stick to is my fingers.

    Lesson learned today.

    The oem did not fuse the power wire going to the cruise switch at the brake M/C. over time the switches leak brake fluid which then shorts the switch, Which in turn starts a fire. The recall was simply a fused jumper harness and a redesigned switch.

    Sadly i can't make it to the rally. No one has invented the retirement accelerator yet.

    extra parts

    I have a few parts left over from my build. I have a pair of brand new cab airbags from a 1st gen vnl and I have a good instrument cluster from an 02 or 03 VNL with a detroit and an autoshift. (it was supposed to be for an early cummins). Is there a good place to post them up? I know this is the only forum section that would probably have any use for them. Thanks, Steve

    Looking to isolate the motion of an air hitch? The aluminum doesn't look strong enough for suspension parts.

    Lesson learned today.

    That is produced during the years of the cruise switch fires. The dealers recalled "most" of them but I have still seen a few that are melted down and ready to burn. I would encourage any of you folks that have older fords to ask the dealer about open recalls.

    Franklin Furniture

    When I built mine I bought a used jack knife sofa and dinette cushions had them re upholstered. (in ostrich skin) You can buy commercial grade fabrics from a wholes sale place in Ga for a great price.
