I'm going to order the bathroom and kitchen exhaust vent covers, gaskets, and screens for our Argosy tomorrow. From what I've read, this is a rivet job to replace them but I don't own the tools.

Anyone have the correct tools and a willingness to provide a demo at the rally to get me started? People on top of the trailers = entertainment.

EDIT: Looks like I may have bad info on the rivets. These vents may be held in place with screws. If so, then I might just need someone to hold the ladder.

I have a rivet gun, but limited on the rivets. You are welcome to use it.
I am bringing the Cyclo and Rotary polishers too. Hoping to finally get a handle on how to bring back my super shine to the trailer.

I'll hold the ladder! I don't think my attention deficit disorder should be too big an issue...

Went to prep the trailer today and pulled the vent covers. No need for rivets, fortunately. So, no need for you to hold the ladder. Besides, it won't be raining so what fun would that be?

However, Alan should bring the rivet gun. Think of the fun that could be had with a rivet gun. An aluminum can decoration-making party, for instance. Your job would be to quench your thirst, often and more often.

You can thank me later for identifying such a fabulous use for your talent.

I just reviewed the parks website. They state 50 amp hookups. Do they also have 30 amp outlets or do I need to bring an adapter?

No worries - 30 amp outlets in abundance.

Thanks for the quick reply nilesrob. I'll bring along a rivet gun & some rivets to play with.

Our schedule freed up and we are able to attend Springstream.
We are torn between a century ride in GA, a century ride in AL or trying to get a site for Springstream and riding on our own.
Hubby did Brass Town Bald when we attended Falluminum. He would like another mountain training ride as he is prepping for the "Assault on Mount Mitchell" ride in May.
The two organized rides do not have the elevation that Dave could get in the North GA mountains. But will I find the flat lands that I prefer?

Well, I will be calling the campground today because an open site or lack there of will play heavy on our decision.
Wishing you all a fun rally with or without us!

Hi,
This will be Jeff and my first Rally! We will be staying on D9! Just checking in. Also, can you tell us what to expect each day and what kind of food stuff we should bring.
Thanks,
Rene Harris

I just called the campground to check if C8 is available on Thursday as well. It is, so we will be arriving a day early!

For those of you who have done this many times, I am sure it is no big deal, but for us newbies it is rather exciting.

Looking at the map, I think I picked one of the more difficult spots to back into. I may well need some help........hopefully Luckyducks will all ready be there when we arrive!
