TAKE A DUMP AT MORAINE VIEW (tee hee)

Yes Jack, the trip to the dump station was unexpected. I don't recall what the gauge said but the tip off was leaking water around the toilet base. Thankfully, it was clear water but when Ike checked to see why some paper wouldn't flush he could see the the tank was FULL. eewww
I thought we had been quite careful in water use but upon using the station again before the trip home we found there was pretty much none in the fresh tank. (We will still check to make sure there isn't an actual fresh water leak at the toilet base.) We have no idea what the tank capacities are - anyone have a thought on this?

Our trailer tech explained that there are sensors in the tank that short out as the water levels reach them and are supposed to register on the gauge. If paper gets hung up on the sensor it will alter (ie: screw up) the reading. Now on the other black tank comment, maybe when the tank gets a seasonal clean out the sensors are freed and the gauges work - until the paper thing again Ooops - off topic - sorry!

PS Yes everything went just fine. Didn't get lost even once either. We need to do this again soon.

Chris,
I don't have them all posted as of yet. Andy pulled the ability to post down since he didn't have the thumbnail software loaded. As soon as its back on line, I'll post the rest. Still have some people pictures, dinner, site, and campfire pictures to post.

You happened to see the work in progress. Glad you had a good time.

Regards,
Jack

Rally Was Great!

Well the forum was down and I've been too busy so I haven't posted anything yet....

But - we loved the rally (who can forget the campfire [keeps everyone guessing - what green flame?]) and it was great to meet everyone.

Let's do it again - SOON!
Now if only I could win that lottery. I'd open an A/S park, repair shop and bone yard. Right here in IL!

I have campfire pictures. Don't know if the green showed. I'll post them when the upload function is available.

Colors? What colors?

How much Chocolate milk did you guys drink? What green flames?

Nothing better than Green Flames, Bluegrass and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer!!! I think there's a song there somewhere.

Had a great time... got our pictures back and everyones AS look great lined up. I still think we should have created the traffic jam at the dump station at the same time.

Did you get home ok? As I went under an overpass I saw you on the side of the road up on top. Saw you too late to exit.

BLOW OUT !!!

Had one of the inner rear tires tear off and blow out about three miles back from that overpass you saw us on. Sure was windy on the way home!
Laura & I had it changed in about 15 minutes...my old NASCAR crew would have been proud. and $276.00 later I have been educated about the DOT dating stamped on each tire sold in these states of America. found out three of the seven tires on the MH are nine years old. I have ordered new ones.

The dealer explained that MH & trailer tires usually will outlast there tread wear. Recommend replacing every 5-7 years to be on the safde side because with our weekend type use we will never wear out the tires on this thing.

Anyway, we all dealt with the "event" very well...the kids just watched more of their movie while Mom & Dad changed the tire.

Hoping to get camping the weekend after the Fourth of July locally.

Ouch! I feel bad I missed stopping for you. Changing an inner tire must be quite a job.

I've never worn a tire out in my life. My cycle is 5 years max for tires. My only failure was trying to get my old Hi-Lo home when the tires were low from winter storage. I rolled one off the rim when pivoting on a back in to the driveway.

At least you had a spare!

Hope to see you sometime in the future.

Regards,

Jack

I started posting on the night that the forum server died. So some were posted but the thumbnails are messed up. Once Andy gets the photo site back up I'm going to wipe the pictures and reload. I'll post an announcement once the pictures are available. Sorry about the delay.

Regards,

Jack

Posted....finally

Well after a long time in waiting I finally have posted many of the Midwest Forum Rally pictures that I took in June. It all looks so good. Those of you who were there will get a kick out of them. Those who weren't consider joining us on our future rallys. It was a great weekend!

http://www.airstreamphotos.com/photo...ser=56&thumb=1

Click on the first picture and use the forward arrow to scroll easily through the picture gallery.

Enjoy! Who's ready for one last get together...how about the weekend October 17, 18, and 19th?

Regards,

Jack
