  1. Thanks Ken, as quickly as the flu situation took shape, I am hoping for the end of the “flu season” or some other kind of good news by the time the 18th rolls around. Even if that does not happen, the risk in outdoor camping right now seems small.
  2. We are still on the fence about it. It is a day's drive so not that far. The plus side is we all will be at our separate campsites. I doubt we would stay for the whole week. We will need things like fuel and food occasionally. Are any travellers having trouble finding either one?
  3. We will be there. Last year we attended for a little while but had to leave right away. This year we will stay for at least a few days.
  4. I was in the same situation when I bought mine. The advice above is good advice. My choice was to have the commercial hitch and hoses removed also. I think this made a difference to the officer when I Did stop. I would advise you to leave the hoses for now, but its your choice. I used TruckerPath app to know if there was an open weigh station ahead. AThe first day I actually went around the two that were open. Many were closed. Of course that took more time. The second day I finally stopped at a weigh station in Tennessee I think? He flashed the red light so i pulled out the notebook and went in. He asked why I had no hitch. It was my first opportunity to brag on my new truck and talk about all the glorious mods I planned. He said he was just curious and said have a nice day. I asked if I should stop at other stations, or skip them since I was non commercial, and planned to modify and retitle. Of course he said yes. I didn't stop at any others. We were not stopped the rest of the way home.
  5. Google “ bolt on car ornaments “ there are many options there too. 😉😉 tryin to help.
  6. Where is it located? I am mulling over whether to double tow a small car or get a flatbed and smart car. I havent quite decided.
  7. This is not a double towing answer, just general planning. Fuel prices have always been higher north of the Mackinac Bridge. Try to plan so you stop for fuel in Mackinac City. (south of the bridge) In my opinion it's more interesting than St Ignace anyway.

    Webasto bunk heater

    Thanks Darryl, it makes sense to check that first. I have not approached it to take it apart but I often will start a repair and disregard the logical stuff. Thanks for your help.

    Webasto bunk heater

    Hi Dennis, We were too busy in the fall, and I was out of commission until mid January from a foot repair I had done. So I never got to look at it. Wish I had more help to offer. The service kit is give or take $250 I think. I haven't ordered that yet either. I want to clean it up and see what happens first anyway. It was trying to start but smoking and then shutting down. Have you used your upgraded system with the batteries and solar yet?
  10. Right you are Rick. It was last summer but I’m pretty sure that’s what I did. I got tired of lounging around under a stream of coolant, it was disturbing my calm appearance. So I clamped the rubber parts above the crappy metal with whatever I could find.
  11. Nope, I drained just enough to soak my hair and sleeves. Then I decided to save the rest in the truck system and clamped the hoses on each side. 😉
  12. I emailed also. Try CarGurus.com. I use it a lot when comparison shopping.
  13. X2. Especially if the sound of the pump motor goes up and down.

    flexible solar panel

    My first impression in comparison, would be similar to a blue poly tarp fastened by grommets. It would last until the first trip at highway speed. Unless you meant to remove it while traveling and only mount while parked? I don’t have solar panels yet and have not examined any so I could be wrong.
  15. We have driven that road by car a few times and it IS beautiful. Carl is right. Just the tight switchbacks would be very unsafe pulling anything. I didn’t even think about the low tunnels.
